Cuttlebug Challenge Blog – Sprinkle with Sparkles Challenge

Hello friends!
This tutorial has been moved to my tutorial site Spike’s Tutorials to keep all my tutorials together on one blog. For the tutorial itself, click here.
Be sure to check out the other tutorials there using glitter! Just type in Glitter in the search window.

Here’s a card using the Grasshopper burnished velvet on black card stock. This technique leaves stunning results where you may not want to do anything else with the finished piece!


Here’s another card using the Snowflakes Cuttlebug Folder and Glitter Ritz Colors: Blue Teal, Western Blue, Royal Blue and Cool Highlight. The sentiment is from Verve Stamps, Snowflake Splendor. And the cardstock is Bazzill Bling. The only tough part is taking photographs that turn out nicely without too much glare.



Here’s my most fave card that Peggy made using this technique!

Okay, now it’s your turn! It’s the Sprinkle the Sparkles Challenge! For trying out this burnished velvet technique, I will give to two lucky recipients, 2 x 10g jars each of Glitter Ritz microfine glitter! (colours will be different from the ones below…winners will get to choose!)


One will be a random draw from all burnished velvet entries and the other will be my favourite Cuttlebugged burnished velvet creation!

Be sure to follow the directions on the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog on the Sprinkle with Sparkles Challenge post to enter. If you don’t have a blog and wish to load your creation on SCS or PCP, please use CBCSpike1 in the keywords and be sure to add your link so we know where to find you.

The deadline for this challenge is March 8th, noon EST.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, please leave a me comment in the comments section.

Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by!

Have a happy, crafty weekend!

  1. This is the reason why I want to offer you a little something on my blog Here I hope you like it. This is just such a fantastic idea. I have often wondered if that would work with embossing powder and then heat embossed afterwards. I have not long had my delivery of clear blue glue delivered so now I can try out both methods of glitter and embossing powder.

  2. Wowza.

    Thanks for that awesome tutorial. Funny. I was looking at the reverse side of a cuttlebugged card remnant and thought it would be fun to do something with the negative areas.

    Now I know what to try. Yahoo!

    I also didn’t know about the blue/clear aspects of the glue pen. That’s a great tip too!

    Your samples are great. You totally deserve tutorial of the week or whatever it is that you won.

  3. I tried this technique a few days ago and can’t stop now!!! 🙂
    Thanks for sharing it on the CB challenge blog!
    I found your blog searching for that brand of glitter….where can it be purchased?


  4. I really enjoyed this tutorial even though I’m seeing it several months after you published it. I’m anxious to try it. Thank you
