Hey friends! It’s EK, and I am popping in today with an over the top glitter card for a little princess in my life. Let’s be honest, when dealing with the little princess in your life, it really should be over the top, and the new Princess Crown die set is perfect for a little bit of over the top glitter.
Step One: Place some Clear Double Sided Adhesive over a piece of trimmed 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the Princess Crown die set over the Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
Step Two: Peel back the adhesive paper of the crown shape die cut and adhere the detailed crown die cut over into the center of it. Add Lavender Ice Silk Microfine Glitter over the die cut crown shape.
Step Three: Peel the adhesive paper back from the detailed crown die cut and add Imperial Garnet Silk Microfine Glitter over it.
Step Four: Add Bright Cranberry Silk Microfine Glitter over the Princess die cut and the heart from the detailed crown die cut.
Step Five: Add Copper Rose Silk Microfine Glitter over the stars and flair die cut piece.
Step Six: Trim a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×5.5 inches. Blend dark water soluble ink over the cardstock and spray it with sparkling spray. I used Black Soot Distress Oxide and Perfect Pearls Spray. Let Dry.
Step Seven: Die cut the blended piece of cardstock with a large die from the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set.
Step Eight: Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the die cut blended cardstock to an A2 card frame. Then add the glitter crown on top of the blended cardstock. Using Kids Choice Glue, adhere the rest of the die cuts to the card frame.
Step Nine: Using a stamping platform, stamp stars and a sentiment from the new Once Upon a Time Sentiments stamp set using white pigment ink.
I wish you could see exactly how sparkly this card is with all this glitter. I just adore how the pinks and purples just pop with the black behind it.
Let us know in the comments below if you would craft with this much glitter for the little princess in your life. Until then, happy crafting.

EK here! I am just loving the new Asian inspired release from Joset. It has been so much fun creating a different style with these fun dies and stamps and today, I have one more card to share with you today.

Step Four: Die cut a circle from the center of the rust cardstock using the Frame It/Stitched Circle die set.
Step Five: Trim a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock to 6×12 inches, score and fold to create a 6×6 inch card frame. Adhere the rust cardstock to the card frame using some 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
Step Six: Adhere the panda into the open circle.
Step Seven: Adhere the Symbol Background die cut onto the left over die cut circle.
Step Eight: Score and fold the circle at 3/4 and inch and add some 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive to create an interactive flap.

Hello Samantha here – today I am sharing a card I created using Joset’s Geometric Background die. I had recently used this die to create a simple background for a Halloween card. I wasn’t looking for any particular shape but when I saw the heart I knew I had my next card idea!
Step 1: On black cardstock, die cut the Geometric Background die.
Step 2: Remove all the negative pieces and adhere the Geometric backgound to black cardsock.
Step 3: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to the back of pink card stock.
Step 4: Die cut the Geometric Background die.
Step 5: Repeat steps 3 and 4 with pattern paper and speciality cardstock.
Step 6: Use the negative pieces to fill in the heart shape.
TIP: Mark areas on of the Geometric heart to note which pieces will have Silk Microfine Glitter.
Step 7: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to the front of black card stock. Die-cut the Geometric Background then remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer of the negative pieces marked in the image above.
Step 8: Apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (in Fruchsia) to the selected pieces. Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle. Adhere these pieces into their negative spots.
Step 9: Heat Emboss the sentiment.
Step 10: Optional: Add machine stitched details. Adhere card front to an A6 card base. Embellish card with a twine bow and sequins.
