Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge #16


Good Morning, Friends!! Happy Monday to you all and you know what Monday means. . .it's Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge again! Yup. . .we're on challenge #16. Every second week of the month, Vicki of Summerthyme Studio will be coming up with the challenges for the challenge blog. Whoohoo!! Knowing Vicki, she'll be making some fun challenges for us!! Click Here to check out this week's challenge. Hope you'll play along this week!!

Do you see all the silver dots on my card. Well, yesterday I bought a bunch of these "Iridescent 3D Paint" at Joann. They were only 99 cents each but I love them. They create these pretty puff up dots with a shimmery sheen. The silver ones look like pearls when applied on your card. I bought like 10 different colors! LOL! They are made by "Scribbles" and they are in the fabric paint section.

Sometimes I'll walk around the craft store and buy stuff just to see how what I can do with them. I have a ton of stuff that I want to experiment with. I bought a few stuff that don't work well on cards too but hey if you don't try it, you'll never know, right?


Anyway. . .stop by Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge blog and check out the beautiful cards created by the design team. Maybe you'll be inspired to play along!!

Hope y'all have a wonderful day!!

What a COOL find Maria! Those shimmery silver dots look awesome!! Your card is totally adorable, as always ;)

Cami said...

Maria, this card is so pretty. Love how you made the dots. I've bought these but I can't make mine look like yours! They either come out like mini kisses or DQ ice cream. What's the secret to getting that small "bead" look? Any help you can give me would be appreciated. Hugs, Cami
