All Things Bling

Last month I held my first "$5 or Free" class and it was a big hit! The theme for the projects was "All Things Bling" and featured a variety of products that add some sparkle. The first project showcased how fabulous Stampin' Up!'s rhinestone jewels are. This very simple card was jazzed up with some sparkle by using these self-adhesive rhinestones.

One of my favorite new products is the glimmer paper from the Occasions Mini Catalog. I sure hope that Stampin' Up! adds this super-sparkly stuff in more colors when the big Idea Book & Catalog comes out this summer! What's so fabulous about this product is that it takes just a small bit to add so much to your projects!
Unfortunately, the picture does do the sparkling cherry the justice it deserves :-)

And lastly, using shimmer paint directly on a stamp creates a stunning effect. A simple layering of a monogram over the shimmer image and some crochet trim finishes it off perfectly!

Thanks for stopping by!
