To make a glitter window, punch out a shape in the cardstock. You will use the part remaining after you punch it (meaning, if you punched a circle, you will use the part with the hole in it, not the circle itself.) Flip the piece over and adhere a piece of clear packing tape so that it complete covers the hole. Flip it back over so that the sticky side of the tape is now face up. Sprinkle clear glitter (dazzling diamonds) over the tape. Shake off the excess. Now you have a glittery window! Stamp something to go behind the window and attach it to the back of the cardstock so that all you see is the stamped image looking through the window.
If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us STAMPIN' !!
I can honestly say I was going through withdrawal without this challenge on Monday morning. I’m so glad to see the site getting ‘way better!’
Being born in the show me state of Missouri did not work for this challenge, I was at a complete loss when I looked at the example photo and had to go back a read and re read the directions. It’s a very cool idea, hats off to whoever came up with it.
Is this one of those things you really need to use a white/clear glitter on? I just made a really cute card (I can say that cuz now it is ruined ) but the glitter I used is too dark to see what is underneath -- it certainly didn't work the way it looked in my head ~LOL.
I love how you gals are making these glitter cards but not making them window cards. Just another thing that I never thought of doing! Every time I've done these I've always made them into window cards also. Not making them window cards allows for more options as you don't have to have a stamp fit inside exactly.
Yay, a good reason to play with my new stuff I got this weekend! Here's my glitter window card (pending approval). It's not a true window -- just a cutout placed on top of the card. Like Jodi said, it gives you more options and it's easier to get lined up!
This was fun. I've only made one or two of these in the past but I really wanted to think of a seasonal one for this challenge. I finally came up with one I was satisfied with.... it isn't up yet, but here is the link. Should be viewable in the morning.
Thanks Denier for pushing me - I'm finally getting motivated again!!! LOL
Ok ladies, I need your help. I started making cards last december when I didn't know a thing about it. I started this card (that happens to be this week's technique) but got stumped as to how to finish it. If you click on the link, you'll see I used clear mosaic stickers instead of tape, and before i added the glitter I put on a silver snowflake sticker. Now what? I slid a piece of vellum partially in there so you can see what it looks like with vellum, or without. I'm so used to making cards with layers and background stamps and whatnot....I'm just clueless to what to do with this card that's being laying around for a year. What should I do?! TIA!!!
