It’s All About the Bling!


Hi all,

It’s Saturday which means it’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.

Joycelyn Pelkey brings us her final challenge for the month which is Bling – use glitter, diamonds, pearls…. make those cards sparkle.

For my card this week, I got to play with some new toys. The image is one of the new Whiff Of Joy stamps released earlier in the month. It is stamped onto one of the new Spellbinders Label 14 dies. The designer paper is from the Pyrus pad from Basic Grey and finally the flowers in the top corner of the card. What fun!

For my bling I added rhinestones to the girls necklace and bangle. It is hard to tell my the photo but the rhinestones are actually yellow. I also used my gold Spica pen to color in the bangle on her hand and her purse and finally I also added glitter glue to the flowers and leaves. In real life this sparkles!!!!!!!! Unfortunately it is not always easy to capture that on camera.


Here is the inside of my card, I used a scrap of the designer paper to add a decorative layer to the bottom of my card.
