*For the month of June Art Glitter is selling 1 oz jars of glitter for $5.98 (regular price $7.32)! Get the deets HERE!
What you will need:
Dreamweaver Stencil LJ 849 Bare Trees
100% Natural Soap
Glitter, #129 Nova Ultrafine Opaque Hologram and #85 Crystal Ultrafine Transparent
Adhesive paper
Cardstock
Brayer (to push the stencil down)
Brush (for brushing off the excess soap)


To start, I rubbed the back of the stencil with the soap and covered all the details of the stencil. I then brushed out the cracks that collected any of the soap. Make sure the stencil is covered well or it may stick to the adhesive.
I attached the adhesive paper to cardstock and peeled back the adhesive.
Using the brayer I rubbed the stencil onto the adhesive paper.  If you have not covered your stencil well with soap the pressure of the brayer could make it stick too firmly.
First, I poured on the The Ultrafine Opaque Hologram Glitter in #129. I rubbed it in with my fingers, tapped off the excess glitter and put it back into the container. Then I flipped the stencil over so it was face down, and carefully peeled the paper off the stencil.
I removed the stencil and then poured Ultrafine transparent Glitter in #85 Crystal over the entire piece, shook it off and mounted it onto a card.
I love how this card turned out. It reminds me of the cabin. The snow glitters off the trees in the winter, and the moons glitters off in the trees in the summer. It is truly a beautiful scene

Here is a close up of the glitter. The hologram glitter in person is amazing, and I hope you all have experienced it. If not, I recommend you try some out. If you are a girly glitter lover, I know that it will not let you down! It sparkles, oh does it sparkle.
