I actually shot two videos for the Glitter Puzzle Tutorial. One where you cut your puzzle with a hobby knife, and this one where I use Tim’s new Fanciful Flight Alteration Die.

The card base was cut out of Chocolate chip cardstock with Stampin’ Up!’s Big shot scallop square die. I cut another piece for my card front and sponged the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink.  I inked up the big flower image from a Nature’s Moment with Peeled Paint and Chipped Sapphire. It was stamped on  4″ square of Just Dreamy 2 My Mind’s Eye paper.


The edges were sponged with Broken China Distress ink and stamped with the stitch stamp from Spring Sprung. (If you were following my blog 2 years ago…I was obsessed with using a stamp from All in a Row to fake stitching. This Tim stamp is sooo cool! I might get obsessed with using that.)

The sentiment is from Going Somewhere. It was stamped in Walnut ink and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. Stardust Stickles was added over the flower ends.

I ran a sheet of cardstock through my Xyron to add double sided adhesive. Then I cut the butterfly twice, once with the adhesive side up, once with the cardstock side up.  If you cut the butterfly the same way twice, you will have two left glittery wings. 🙂

I attached the solid wing pieces to the card base with dimensionals, peeled off the adhesive backing and adhered the detailed wing part over it. Then I rubbed Red, Orange and Yellow Martha Stewart Glitter over the wing. After I tapped off the excess, I peeled the adhesive backing off the detailed stamp and added Brown Glitter.

Here is a video for the visual learner:

You are still teaching me new tricks…Thanks Beate…now, I have a question…I broke my Cuttle Bug “B” plate…and when I went to purchase a new one (at both Hobby Lobby and Michael’s) the “B” plate is thicker than the one I originally had…do you have any idea what is up with that? I did contact Provo Craft…but I thought I would run it past you to see if you knew anything about it…
