To start us off this month, Birgit Norton created her glittery background using Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape in 3mm; 6mm and 10mm covering the adhesive tape with Vintage Pink; Spring Peridot; Sea Glass and Teal Silk Microfine Glitters. For the rest of her card she used the Dotted Scallop Rectangles; Scallop Hearts from Els van de Burgt Studio, the Small Cupcake from Joset Designs and the Garden Notes Ivy Vine. Birgit used White and Celadon Soft Finish Cardstock on her card.

Frances Byrne used the ModaScrap Rose Pocket die to create her glittered background with Pink Peony and Silverado Silk Microfine Glitter. Frances also used the ModaScrap Dancing Butterflies and Stitched Fishtail Banners and the word “Sending” from the A Way with Words – Sending Hugs Kisses die set to decorate her card. Frances used White, Rosebud, Silver Gray and Rich Black Soft Finish Cardstock as well.

Sanna Lippert created a beautiful glittered butterfly background using the ModaScrap Dancing Butterflies and the Small Butterfly & Smile Sentiment from Els van de Burgt Studio. Sanna used Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to create her background panel and Fire Opal Silk Microfine Glitter for the butterfly next to the sentiment. Half-pearls add a bit of dimension to the butterfly’s body.

Selma Stevenson created a gorgeous glittery gift card holder using the ModaScrap Leaf Pocket and Lacy Poppies die sets. To create her gift card holder Selma also used Els van de Burgt Studio Tags & More 9 – Sparkle; Dotted Scallop Rectangles and Happy Birthday dies. For the sentiment on the front she chose A Way with Words – Celebrate. Selma used White, Rich Black and Olive Twist Soft Finish Cardstock on her card and added Soft Green Microfine Glitter, visible through the open areas within the leaves.

Melanie Smith created her glittered background using Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape in 3mm; 6mm and 10mm, covering the tape with Antique Silver, Antique Gold and Ruby Silk Microfine Glitter. To create her card Melanie chose Stitched Rectangles and Dotted Scallop Rectangles from Els van de Burgt Studio and a sentiment stamp from Susan’s Garden. To decorate her card Melanie die cut patterned paper with ModaScrap Dancing Butterflies dies.

Sandy Diller created a gorgeous gatefold card that can be used with an invitation tucked inside. She used the ModaScrap Gatefold – Elegant Rose die as well as the Postage Stamp Squares from Els van de Burgt Studio. For the glittered background Sandy chose Copper Rose Silk Microfine Glitter.

Anita Kejriwal celebrates in style using the ModaScrap Rose Pocket with Vintage Pink Silk Microfine Glitter for her background. Anita used Dotted Scallop Rectangles from Els van de Burgt Studio and incorporated Silk Microfine Glitter in the foreground, too, with A Way with Words – Celebrate in Basic Black Silk Microfine Glitter. She chose Soft Finish Cardstock as well.

Katelyn Grosart gets straight to the point with this masculine birthday card. For her glittery background, she used the Diamond Background from Joset Designs, adding sparkle with Chocolate and White Silk Microfine Glitter. To decorate her card Katelyn chose the Arrows and Feathers die sets from Joset Designs, the Pair of Leaves 1 and Pair of Leaves 2 from ModaScrap, and the Stitched Circles from Els van de Burgt Studio. For the sentiment she picked the General Sentiments Clear Stamps.

  • Scrappypainter April 4, 2017 at 6:45 pm

    I like to use it as borders with the double sided tape, every card can always use some sparkle…

  • Vicki Miller April 4, 2017 at 5:45 pm

    My favorite thing to do with glitter is to adhere double sided adhesive to a card. Pull off the paper cover to expose the adhesive and stick a piece of lace on it. Add a light colored glitter and burnish the glitter. Pull the lace off and add a dark glitter and burnish the glitter. Makes a great background or border and everyone thinks the card is awesome.

  • Carole Gonzales April 4, 2017 at 5:39 pm

    Love your glitter, best I’ve used

  • Rijacki Ledum April 4, 2017 at 5:11 pm

    Would rely like to do it with the flowers think its awesome

  • Linda Buyck April 4, 2017 at 2:58 pm

    I like it with the peel-off stickers, various widths of double-sided tape for borders and punches. Burnish the glitter and BAM, who doesn’t like glitter. Takes your card to a new level.

  • F M Gardner April 4, 2017 at 2:58 pm

  • Sarah Biswabic April 4, 2017 at 2:12 pm

    I have never tried microfine glitter but, if I could I would make a stencil and lay it on my card and make a stunning background. My favorite colors are light green,light pink, medium green and dark pink.

  • Linda H. April 4, 2017 at 2:12 pm

    Love the array of colors in the micro fine glitter.

  • Michelle April 4, 2017 at 1:06 pm

    I love the Silk Microfine Glitter. I used it on my Christmas cards for my poinsettia’s and they were gorgeous. Since then I purchased more and love the way it shines and practically no mess. I love to use it on accents and the double sided adhesive is great to work with.

  • Kathy April 4, 2017 at 1:02 pm

    I find that using a paper coffee filter to collect unused glitter is the best! Very little mess, and the paper pinches together so you can return extra glitter to its storage jar.

  • Maggie Neil April 4, 2017 at 12:59 pm

    Each & every card is absolutely beautiful & unique! I haven’t used glitter much when making cards because it seems intimidating. I would love to try it. I would probably use the double sided tape method or adhesive backing? I’m going to watch your videos and attempt some of these projects. Thanks for the beautiful inspirations and products

  • Kathy April 4, 2017 at 12:59 pm

    I like to use a paper coffee filter (large) to catch my unused glitter when glittering. The extra glitter can be easily returned to the jar and the filter into the trash with very little mess.

  • Geri S. April 4, 2017 at 12:55 pm

    I love silk micro-fine glitter! Any technique is wonderful but I guess my fave would be with background dies

  • Anneke Schep April 4, 2017 at 12:53 pm

    I like to use glitter either in small details with glue, or in larger parts with double sided adhesive sheets for backgrounds. 95% for cards, 5% other projects (like Christmas ornaments).
    Great giveaway, thanks for a chance to win.

  • Kathy Green April 4, 2017 at 12:50 pm

  • Sandra McNeill April 4, 2017 at 12:35 pm

    My favorite technique to use Silk Microfine Glitter is on ornaments.

    my favorite is the one with the circles which you use different color micro fine glitter. but all the cards are beautiful.

  • Naomi Milanowski April 4, 2017 at 11:46 am

    My favorite application using the beautiful silk microphine glitters was using them with the Christmas ornaments that Els had on one of her YouTube demonstrations. That was when I decided I HAD to add them to my stash. Not to worry… I have room for more!!

  • Nicole Santos April 4, 2017 at 11:41 am

    I really like the use of the glitter with clear double sided tape.

  • Angelina Quinones April 4, 2017 at 11:40 am

    Hmmm Hard to decide. I love what Els did in the video with the peacock feather. And I love using the microfine glitter with peel-off stickers

    I was not much of a glitter user until Silk Microfine. It really is very nice to use. I like it on die cuts with the double sided adhesive.

  • Marilyn Martin April 4, 2017 at 11:21 am

    My favorite way to use it is with a large intricate background die and tape. I’m really enjoying the microfine glitter or use it for everything and card making.

  • Sophia Marx April 4, 2017 at 11:19 am

    My favorite microfine glitter technique is to use the black stencils and add multiple colors to a design, like a butterfly, for example. I just learned that from your video!

  • Julie Olinger April 4, 2017 at 11:16 am

    Silk Microfine Glitter is the only glitter I will use. One of my favorite techniques with this glitter is to use lace to make the designs on my cards. I’m always on the lookout for more lace! I absolutely love this glitter!

  • roberta Harrell April 4, 2017 at 11:14 am

    I love using microphone glitter with the double-sided tape especially on birthday cards

  • Cat Arenzana April 4, 2017 at 10:56 am

    My favorite way to use the Silk Microfine glitter is with intricate dies or Peel-Off stickers and then adding color with Copic Markers. But, I am very intrigued by Birgit’s card and how she created that sparkly plaid background. Guess I’ll have to invest in the tapes in a variety of widths!

  • Anna Starr April 4, 2017 at 10:53 am

    I like making die cuts from the release sheet and then making layered scenes with different colors of glitter on a large piece of cardstock backed double sided adhesive… most recently I did a poppy scene with butterflies…

  • Christine April 4, 2017 at 10:53 am

    I have to say that I do not have a favorite way of using the Silk Microfine Glitter as I love them all depending what I am doing. I never liked using glitter until I got the Silk Microfine Glitter it is like no other glitter.

    I love the plaid designs created with the double sided tapes in different widths.

  • Kathy Krug April 4, 2017 at 10:39 am

    I like using glitter behind a die cut and then layering on top. I like using double sided adhesive on card stock adding the glitter and die cutting the smaller pieces like butterflies.

  • AMY LYNCH April 4, 2017 at 10:38 am

    Great inspiration… Thank you.
    I love using the leftover two sided tape backings for masking.

  • Barb MacAskill April 4, 2017 at 10:35 am

    I love using ECD Silk Microfine Glitter so many ways but my favorite way to use it is with double sided tape to make sparkaliscious backgrounds or layering pieces!
    Going from other glitters to the Silk Microfine Glitter is like going from cheap hamburger to a huge lobster with drawn butter! Luxurious and scrumptious!
    Would love to be in the trio of winners this time around! Thanks for the chance to!

    Oh my it’s like asking which of your children you like more. Love all the cards today. I especially love when it’s used in open areas of die cuts. Gives that subtle glimmer to the area. Thank so much for sharing and giving us an opportunity to get more glitter. 🙂

  • Sandi Coulson April 4, 2017 at 10:25 am

    I love the glitter. I make napkin cards with the double sided adhesive and glitter. I also love using the adhesive and glitter with lace.

    Love Els!!

  • Ingrid Broekman April 4, 2017 at 10:24 am

    I have never used the Silk Microfine Glitter yet, but I have a jar of ‘Saffron’ coming. I’m dying to try the technique of using Silk Microfine Glitter with double-sided adhesive, and using my Dandelion Fluff and Pair of Leaves 2 dies (for starters).

  • Elliott Esther April 4, 2017 at 10:24 am

    I use it on my cards using lace on sticky paper, then sprinkle in the glitter and rub it in, then take lace off and it looks like the lace is still there.

  • Jamie Howell April 4, 2017 at 10:21 am

    I love the ability to color over the glitter! Whether I use tape or pee-off stickers, this technique has opened a whole new direction for our creations.

    • Jamie Howell April 4, 2017 at 10:24 am

      “peel-off” stickers…

  • Tammy Joyce April 4, 2017 at 10:19 am

  • linda wood April 4, 2017 at 10:16 am

    I like to use the double sided tape and spread the glitter all over it . Makes a simple but sparkley background.

  • Laura P. April 4, 2017 at 10:15 am

    Wonderful cards today! Your glitters are the best! I like to use the doubke sided tape and a die cut, and glitter in sectons to create an ombre effect. Love your tutorials! Thank you for the chance to win!

  • Tamara Beechler April 4, 2017 at 10:15 am

    I have not used the silk microfiber glitter yet. I absolutely love using glitter. Stems back to being a little girl and fairy tales, I suppose. I love to use bling on my cards whenever possible. Now, I have another venue to obsess over! How fun!!

  • preeti d. April 4, 2017 at 10:12 am

    Gorgeous cards 🙂 using the double sided adhesive tape with the glitter is such a cool idea, would love to give it a go!

  • Crystal Williams April 4, 2017 at 10:10 am

    These are all beautiful cards and I could not pick a favorite. I’m new to the double sided adhesive and micro glitter techniques, but it is my favorite technique so far. I really do like your glitter better than any other and the goal is to have each one in my stash. Your videos are great and you make it look so easy. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Connie Johanns April 4, 2017 at 10:08 am

    I like to use the Silk Microfine Glitter on all die cuts. It make them pop off the cards. And gives just the right amount of “sparkle” that I just love. Wonderful product

  • Joanna Mackintosh April 4, 2017 at 10:08 am

    I have never used your Silk Microfine Glitter – I do tend to avoid it wherever possible 😉 Have to say though, after watching lots of Els and purchasing a roll of the double-sided adhesive, I am experimenting a bit more. I wish I could get hold of Swiffer cloths more easily here in the UK though, she uses them so well but I would have to go through Amazon and pay a small fortune for them sadly 🙁

    • Ingrid Broekman April 4, 2017 at 10:39 am

      Joanna, do you have an Aldi or Lidl nearby? If not, perhaps an ASDA? You should be able to get similar no-name brands there for considerably less 🙂

  • carol a smith April 4, 2017 at 10:08 am

    I loved Els Van deBurgt, when she used lace with the double sided sticky tape as a template, the shimmer was nothing less then Beautiful and romantic !

  • NCDonna April 4, 2017 at 10:08 am

    My favorite use of glitter is to use double stick tape and die cuts and just go to town! I did the 30 day coloring challenge using glitter and lots of die cut butterflies and flowers. Thank you Els for all the fabulous tips!

  • Carla Hundley April 4, 2017 at 10:07 am

    Such lovely work
    with the glitters!
    I like to use a glue
    with stamp to
    adhere to glitter
    to.

    My favorite technique is to use the double-sided tape on the cardstock and lay a beautiful piece of lace over it and burnish in the Elizabeth Crafts microfine glitter. Remove the lace and add another color of the microfine glitter to the exposed tape.

  • Patsy April 4, 2017 at 10:04 am

    Really like the “fineness” of this glitter. Use it with spray adhesive to put a very light sparkle on flowers to attache to cards.

  • Lisa Weyers April 4, 2017 at 10:01 am

    I am addicted to your double sided adhesive. I will be trying some lace techniques as described here! thank you Els and team

    To tell you the truth, I have not used your Silk Microfine Glitter. To tell the truth, I have not used much glitter at all. I am fairly new to crafting and have just started to try out glitters. I just recently heard about your Silk Microfine Glitter from Stacy at Scrapbooking Made Simple. I put it on my list of craft things to buy. And then I got your email today, so I thought I would try and win these. I so do want to try them. I was so curious about them, I went into YouTube and just watched several of your videos on this Silk Microfine Glitter. It looks AMAZING!!! Thank you for the chance to win some of these. I am very eager now to try them. As I was watching the videos, I thought, why would anyone want to use any other glitter than this. I hope , eventually, to get every color you have. I know I want these to become my “go to” glitter. Thank you again for the chance to win and try them.

    These cards are fabulous! I haven’t used this glitter yet, but I watched the video where it was burnished through lace & I’m anxious to give that a try.

  • DOREEN BLOSSER April 4, 2017 at 9:58 am

    love to do the lace technique…have done it and its always a shop stopper!!

  • Jean Chaney April 4, 2017 at 9:57 am

    I like to use the Microfine Glitter as a background for images. For example, a combo of blues and then add orange fish on top in a shaker card. Love the inspiration cards!

  • Lucille Sanford April 4, 2017 at 9:56 am

    I love all your Glitters and someday I will have acquired them all!!! someday!!! Adhesive sheet and glitter is a happy marriage made in a crafters world!

  • Susan April 4, 2017 at 9:56 am

    I love the lace and glitter technique. I’ve used it several times with our card making club……beautiful!!!

  • Joanne Kruger April 4, 2017 at 9:55 am

    I don’t know if I could choose only 3 of your beautiful glitters if I won, but I would like to try.

  • DOREEN BLOSSER April 4, 2017 at 9:54 am

    love to the lace technique…have done it and its always a shop stopper!!

    • DOREEN BLOSSER April 4, 2017 at 10:02 am

      sorry didn’t mean to post this twice, didn’t go thru the first time…

  • Valinda April 4, 2017 at 9:42 am

    I haven’t tried it yet but I want to do the technique with the lace. I think the finished product is so delicate and beautiful.

  • Nancy Yoder April 4, 2017 at 9:41 am

    Ahhh glitter everywhere! Until I watched Els video on glitter! Now a coffee filter contains the glitter everywhere! Thank you Els! And I love Delmas card using tone on tone glitter to paper! Stunning! Thank you Selma!

    • Nancy Yoder April 4, 2017 at 10:00 am

      Ohhh…soft green glitters is my choice of glitters! Just as Selma used!

  • Kathy Mueller April 4, 2017 at 9:40 am

    I haven’t used this type of glitter before, but I would love to try it out with a lot of different methods.

  • Carol D. April 4, 2017 at 9:38 am

    My favorite way to use the glitter is with a beautiful piece of lace on the adhesive sheets. Apply and polish in the open areas, burnish with finger, brush off extra, then pull off the lace and fill in with a clear or contrast color glitter. Very fancy!

  • Sandi McFarland April 4, 2017 at 9:37 am

    There is no such thing as too much bling! I absolutely LOVE the glitter backgrounds!

  • Sharon April 4, 2017 at 9:36 am

    I’m the glitter queen among my friends. Love shiny!!

  • Teena Schaefer April 4, 2017 at 9:36 am

    I use the double sided tape method most often. I love your products!

  • Teena Schaefer April 4, 2017 at 9:34 am

  • Kirsten Freye Sykes April 4, 2017 at 9:31 am

    I love using it with the butterflies.

    Also the lace..so elegant

  • Sheila C. April 4, 2017 at 9:30 am

    I like to die cut shapes and place them on double sided tape and then add the glitter. Beautiful results every time.

  • Myrna April 4, 2017 at 9:30 am

    The array of colors of your Silk Microfine glitter is fabulous. They do make striking backgrounds.

  • Cynthia Link April 4, 2017 at 9:30 am

    I like to use the glitter on pieces that I die cut from double sided adhesive sheets. It gives a die a whole new look! Love lots of glitter! Thanks!

  • Connie Sue Larson April 4, 2017 at 9:29 am

    The double sided tape works well and easily for me when using glitter! I LOVE adding glitter to my cards

  • Becca Y April 4, 2017 at 9:28 am

    Making rainbows – wow, are they pretty in glitter!
    Beautiful inspiration today, thank you.

  • Mary Ellen Reeder April 4, 2017 at 9:27 am

    I love the color choices with this fine glitter. Will give sparkle and interest to the areas I love to hightlight on my cards like butterfly wings:)

  • Elizabeth April 4, 2017 at 9:25 am

    I like to sprinkle it on modeling paste that was applied using a stencil! That gives it dimension and sparkle!

  • Bill Burton April 4, 2017 at 9:25 am

    I like double-sided tapes. I use Scor-Tape and Silhouette Double-sided sheets. Your glitters are fantastic!

  • Pat April 4, 2017 at 9:21 am

    I’m new to glitter. The backgrounds look easiest and most forgiving. One of those will be first. I now have five colors of glitter–all EC.

  • Pat April 4, 2017 at 9:19 am

    I have just built up my inventory of EC glitter to 5 colors. I am ready to try my first glitter project. These backgrounds look great and I think I’ll try one of those first, then a sticker. All of these projects look doable for a beginner, now to find the time.

  • Marilyn April 4, 2017 at 9:19 am

    I always loved glitter; but couldn’t get it to “act right” until I discovered yours and the double sided tape . Now everything has at least some glitter on it! Thank you!

  • Carol b April 4, 2017 at 9:14 am

    I love to highlight certain areas on cards! Can’t beat the sparkle of the microfine glitter.

  • Theresa A Wright April 4, 2017 at 9:13 am

    So many choices! I’ll have to look again to see if my favorite was used – certainly there was at least one variation – but my favorite is to use a scrap of lace on cardstock that has been backed with double sided adhesive, apply glitter and rub in well, then remove the lace and apply a contrasting color of glitter to the negative space that had been left by the pattern in the lace. Lovely!

  • Edith Double April 4, 2017 at 9:13 am

    I haven’t used thIs product and would love to learn .I love adding glitter to my cards. Thank you for all the tips you give on your blog.

  • Vivian C. April 4, 2017 at 9:00 am

    All the design team projects are so beautiful. I’m a glitter novice. I have been watching Els’ videos and learning lots. My favorite glitter technique is to fill the negative space of a die cut with glitter. It really makes the die cut pop.

  • Jan D., FL April 4, 2017 at 8:38 am

    I love coloring the glitter with my Copic markers. I took a class to learn how to use the peel offs with the glitters and then coloring and blending with my Copics. I’ll be honest, I hated glitter until I discovered yours. Now I wouldn’t be without it in my arsenal of supplies.

  • Leanne Brock April 4, 2017 at 8:30 am

    I absolutely love the Silk Microfine Glitter that Els puts out. I use it on a lot of different projects to give sparkle and texture. The people who receive my cards or creations always say the same thing, “I can’t believe this is glitter, it’s so soft.” Thank you to all of the designers for wonderful pictures and ideas.

  • Janet Lange April 4, 2017 at 8:19 am

    Elizabeth Crafts glitter is the best on the market. I like to use it any time I want to add a little sparkle to a card.

  • Mary Holshouser April 4, 2017 at 8:17 am

    I use the peel-off stickers for my
    cards. There are so many designs
    and I can always find one that fits with
    the design. I enjoy coloring the glitter.
    thanks for sharing so many great cards.
