On the 5th Day of Stamps-Mas, my true love gave to me…..BLING, BLING, BLING, BLING, BLING!!!! Did you all sing that with me?? I know I sure did!!! In honor of the 5 Golden Rings, I thought I would do BLING – Rhinestones, Pearls, Glimmer Paper, Foil Paper and Dazzling Details!!!
Pearls & Rhinestones are the perfect little pop of bling to add to any project. I love adding a few randomly for some texture and bling. Add one to the center of flowers for a pop of color or on either side of a greeting!
Foil Paper comes in Gold, Silver, and Copper! This paper is super shiny and fun to work with. I find that it goes through the Big Shot in Framelits and Thinlits fairly easy (sometimes better than Glimmer Paper since it is chunkier). It is also better for layering than Glimmer Paper. It works perfect for man cards too which a little shine for tools and other looks!
Glimmer Paper is just so fabulous and bling-y! It comes in Red, Gold, Silver, Blushing Bride, and Dazzling Diamonds (like white). I love using this for lots of bling on my card but not having to work with powder glitter that gets all over. This glitter may have a piece or 2 rub off on your hand but it will not be all over. You can use it with Framelits & Thinlits in the Big Shot but be sure to crank it through a few times to get all the way through the paper. One of the downfalls to this paper is I find it difficult to adhere things to the top of it. So using it as a background is not ideal but I tend to use it as an accent or front and center piece anyway!!! Who wants to hid it? It’s fabulous!!!
Dazzling Details is my other favorite form of glitter because it isn’t powder glitter that gets all over. If you haven’t picked up on it yet, I’m not a fan of powder glitter after I dropped an entire tub of it all over myself. 🙂 This glitter is in a squeeze bottle with a fine tip. You can add it along the edge of an image or dotted all around. You don’t need a ton of it or it will take forever to dry but it adds the perfect amount of bling! It comes in Silver and Gold.
