Creating a Bling-y Background!!!

Isn’t this card just fabulous??? That subtle bling is just perfect! It isn’t too much and you don’t have to worry about creating a huge glittery mess when you create this card! I used Dazzling Details, a Sponge Dauber and a Mask! How amazing!?!?!

I started with a Whisper White card base! I took a piece of Real Red measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″ and placed the Dots Decorative Mask over top of it! Then I squeezed some Dazzling Details into a old embellishment container (or any plastic surface) and using a Sponge Dauber, I pounced over the polka dots. You don’t want to add lots of glitter because it will take forever to dry and will bleed under the mask a little. Once you have filled all of the polka dots, pull off the mask and set it aside to dry. You can always use your Heat Tool to speed up the process a little!

Once it was dried, I added it to the card front. For the greeting, I used the Berry Merry Stamp Set and die cut it with the Lots of Labels Framelits! Super cute and fabulous for the Holiday Season!!!

This card I am in LOVE with and it was sort of a mistake. After playing with the glitter, I thought what about adding some Re-Inker to it for some color. I dripped 1 (ONE) drop of Night of Navy in there and HELLO COLOR! I was really surprised at how dark it was. I started playing the stripes on some Whisper White scrap paper. Slowly I was running out of glitter so I added some more Dazzling Details and of course this only lightened the blue more. As I went along I noticed this fabulous ombre affect happening and I was in love. I will say that when you add the re-inker it gets much runnier so it bleed under the mask and wasn’t as crisp. I still love it!!! I layered this onto some Night of Navy Cardstock and then Marina Mist. I put it all onto a Whisper White card base. For the greeting, I used the Tin of Cards Stamp Set and Decorative Label Punch!

I love the subtle glittery look and I love Dazzling Details in all of the colors – Silver, Gold, Red, and Dazzling! You can check out my Video Tutorial below of by clicking here! Don’t forget to give it a thumbs up if you liked it!!!

Happy Stampin’
