A questions I get asked alot is “Can you layer glitter HTV?” or “Can you layer puff vinyl on top of glitter HTV?” Typically the answer to both of those questions are no. The reason you cannot layer typical glitter vinyl is because the top surface of the glitter vinyl is bumpy, and you need a smooth surface for the second layer of vinyl to stick too.

I like to tell people to think of glitter vinyl like sprinkles on a cupcake. You would not put frosting over the sprinkles, would you? No. The sprinkles have to be on top . . . UNLESS you use Siser Sparkle Glitter Vinyl!

You CAN layer Siser Sparkle Glitter Vinyl!

Siser vinyl is changing the world of glitter vinyl with their brand new line of Sparkle vinyl. Not only is this product soft to the touch but you can actually layer it. You heard me right, you can layer glitter vinyl on top of glitter vinyl with the Sparkle line! How is this possible? Because Sparkle has a smooth surface on the top. The glitter is actually embedded into the vinyl.

Also, it is so easy to cut with your Cricut! Seriously . . . when I was cutting and weeding the vinyl for this project I must have said “I love this stuff!” a dozen times

Cricut Cutting Settings:

Blade: Standard
Setting: Iron-on

Trust me! There is no need to use the special glitter vinyl settings for this product! I cut it on the exact same settings that I use for Siser EasyWeed. Speaking of which, if you have ever struggled with weeding glitter vinyl let me tell you that your troubles are gone! This was the easiest weeding ever!

And will you look at that sparkle! The effect is so beautiful especially when the light hits it.

I cut the design for this shirt from images I found in Cricut Design Space. There are four layers to this image. With other glitter products, I would have probably done the Mickey Mouse image in a solid color vinyl, so that I could do the words in glitter vinyl over the top. Since I really wanted to test out layering Sparkle glitter over glitter so I cut the whole Mickey Mouse head out of the Sparkle Grapevine, which is a deep purple color.

Pressing Directions:

Pressure: Medium
Peel: Warm

Now you CAN Layer Glitter HTV!

This would have been a cute shirt with just the Sparkle Mickey Mouse on it, but we are taking this to the next level. Now I am adding the Sparkle Snowstorm White layer, and I did this next picture to show you close up that I really am going to layer glitter vinyl over glitter vinyl.

Let’s keep going with more layers of color. I did two shades of yellow for the word Day. First I pressed down the Sparkle Gold Star. As you can see that is going right over the top of the Grapevine Purple layer.

The last step was to add the Sparkle Buttercup Yellow to the very top. I really like that even though I have layered several colors over the top of each other, the shirt does not feel thick or stiff.

Where do you purchase your vinyl?

I prefer to use Siser brand vinyl for my iron on projects. I feel that is the best quality brand of iron on vinyl out there, and it weeds the easiest. For permanent vinyl I like StarCraft vinyl. People have asked me why not Cricut brand, since I use a Cricut machine. Personally I just do not like the way the Cricut vinyl cuts or weeds. I think you should find the brand you love and work with that product. Test things out for yourself. Sometimes it is just a personal preference like how some people would rather have Pepsi products over Coke products.

So once you find your brand of vinyl, where should you buy it? If your favorite brand is sold at the local craft store, then you are lucky in the fact that you can pretty much garantee that you can run to the store and pick up vinyl when ever you need it.

For me, Siser was not always sold in the stores, as it is now, so I had to get it from online retailers. Again, this is where you can either go with your personal preference of stores or go where the best deal is. One day the best price might be at one store, and then the next week it might be from a different retailer. We all do this when we sometimes pick up toliet paper at the grocery store, but then we also get it at Target when it is on sale.

I also love that I can order large rolls or small sheets when ordering Siser online. This can give you a larger variety of choices and allow to to save money on larger orders. To make sure you are getting the best price for your vinyl, make sure to check out my Vinyl Buyers Guide. Because of that, I will always share all of the different resource I am connected to and you can choose which one is best for you!

Heat Transfer Warehouse is another supplier that I love, and they are actually somewhat close to me. Their headquarters are in North Dakota and I am in Minnesota. They even have their own line of vinyl, and they are partnering with other companies to really bring you a wide variety of products.

You may have noticed that there are a lot of retailers that only ship to places in the United States. This is because shipping prices can really add up. I want to be able to help my followers find their products no matter where they live and that is why I was happy to find some retailers that ship world wide! That is where the next two compnaies come in as options.

  1. Hi there, I do believe your site might be having web browser
    compatibility issues. When I take a look at your site in Safari, it looks fine
    however, when opening in Internet Explorer, it’s
    got some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to give
    you a quick heads up! Besides that, great blog!

  2. I’m really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?

    Either way keep up the nice quality writing,
    it’s rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays.
