When I first seen that Heidi Swapp was introducing Glitter Sheets into the Minc line I was soo excited. I stalked Scrapbook.com and set of a notification to alert me the second they became available! I have played around and used these sheets for quite some time now. I really like to have a good idea of how to use something before I make a video on how to use it! And that’s what I’m doing today sharing how to use these glitter sheets a few of my favorite ways to use these them! Also I’m sharing a few things that DON’T work. Be sure to watch the video tutorial below for all the information!
Some supplies used in this video tutorial were sent to me free of charge for design purposes. I only ever design for companies I can stand behind 100%! To see who I currently or have previously designed for head HERE.
My favorite way to use the Glitter sheets is with foiling gel. In my opinion this way gives you the best results! It almost looks like velvet and once the glitter is set, it doesn’t budge! This is the slowest way, however. You do need to account for dry time with this method. Here’s a look at the card I made today using this method!

If you don’t have time to allow the gel to dry, or the mess and fuss of the gel just isn’t your thing you have another option. There are paper pads with gel already applied to them just waiting for you to add the glitter. The downfall with this method is you are limited to the patterns provided and it doesn’t give as nice of a result in my opinion. However, these pre made patterned papers also work with foil and the Deco Foil Flock Sheets!
One more things to mention about these pre made paper pads. They come in both 6×6 and 12×12 sizes as well as kraft! Each pad contains 12 designs with 2 sheets of each design. The paper isn’t super heavyweight, I would say it’s in between a copy weight and heavy weight. Here’s a look at the close up results of the Rose Gold Minc Glitter Sheets with the Heidi Swapp Paper Pad.
The third and final technique I regularly use with the Minc Glitter Sheets is using them with double sided adhesive. You can use it with ANY double sided you may have on hand but I love to use adhesive sheets and die cut them! This is one of my favorite ways to add a little pizzazz to my sentiments! I would say this is a less messy way to glitter, but it is in no way mess free. This is also a great way to use up the little leftover pieces of the glitter sheets that may not be large enough for backgrounds! This is also how I glittered the alphabet die cuts on my first card.
I have used this technique MANY times. Here’s a look at a couple of cards I previously created. To watch the video, click the photos!
Be sure to watch the video on this one! There is a ton of information in there as well as detailed instructions on each of these techniques you can use with the Heidi Swapp Minc Glitter Sheets.
