Splitcoast Tutorial: Colored Glitter Inlay

It's my turn to share a tutorial with the Splitcoast community and I chose this fun glittering technique - Colored Glitter Inlay! The little scene below was actually created with a cutting die. I love how the outline fades into a 'no-line' scene as glitter and color are added. It's an easy and fun one - I hope you'll check it out!

This die was a sample handed to me in the Spellbinders booth at CHA - it's part of the In'Spire die collection, and it's called Paradise Palms. I colored the glittered scene with Touch Twin Markers and custom-colored some flat-backed pearls for coconuts, too! The sentiment comes from my Life Stuff Sentiments clear set.

It's so very sparkly! Hope you'll take a look and try it out.
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. This looks like fun! Another way to get more out of our dies. Alas, I don't think there's an option to vary the pressure on the Grand Calibur.

  2. Simply lovely and fun to create, not to difficult at all. I have a question.....will the glitter damage the tips of your Copic markers? Just wondering.
    Thank you for the great tutorial, Dina.

  3. A very pretty card. I'll have to check out the technique.

  4. Awesome tutorial and beautiful tropical scene! Such a neat idea! And I love your card with the IO snowflake too...did I miss seeing this before? You should have Jeanne put it up on the IO FB page!! Thanks for sharing.
