Tuesday Tutorial: Glitter Masking with Outline Stickers

Hi everyone! I have a really fun technique that I want to share with you today that makes it easy to create beautiful glittered accents that you can use on many different types of projects.

I’m going to show you how to use your Outline (Peel Off) stickers in a whole new way. Instead of just using the outline and leaving the rest behind you use the whole image and the inner pieces become a mask. It’s sooo cool! Now your different colours of glitter don’t get stuck to the wrong place. It goes on and stays just where you want it.

I should warn you though…this technique is very addictive and you may sparkle for awhile from all the glitter. LOL!

So, how do you do it? It’s easy! Just watch this video to see how.

Supplies you will need for this technique:

  • Outline stickers – we used some from Elizabeth Craft Designs
  • Magic Tape (made specially for use with Outline stickers)
  • Cardstock – smooth works best
  • Double-sided Adhesive – Studio K Double-sided Adhesive or Scor-Tape for best results and they come in the wider sizes and sheets you will need for these types of projects
  • Studio K Opaque or Transparent Glitter – a variety of coordinating and contrasting colours
  • Tweezers
  • Scor-Tool
  • Scissors
  • Glitter Clean Up Cloth
  • Large fluffy brush
  • Coffee Filters or scrap paper (to place under your project & catch the extra glitter)

I hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial and give them fun technique a try.

    What fun using glitter on the stickers…thanks for the great tutorial. I have a question….once the glitter is burnished into the design with our finger, can the excess glitter be reused or should it be thrown out? I am wondering if the burnishing technique has any effect on the leftover glitter. Thanks!

    Great tutorial! I’ve tried this technique before and wish I had viewed this tutorial first as your instructions are so clear.

    Thanks for your question Nadia. Burnishing doesn’t change the glitter at all and you can certainly re-use it but I find that sometimes you get some colour mixing when you have applied a few colours as stray bits are picked up so I have a special little jar that I put all those bits in and create my own multi-coloured blends. That way you aren’t wasting any glitter and you can get some really cool effects.

    I think this is great and I have seen the demonstration at the shows. I still am having a hard time locating the sheet of magic tape. where do you find it?

    Hi Jan! We have the Magic Tape in our store but it is called Peel Off Sticker Transfer Sheet. It is exactly the same as the tape used in the tutorial. Here’s a link to it…Transfer Sheet
