Am I Pinteresting To You?

Are YOU as addicted to PINTEREST as I am?  The thing I use it for the most, aside from finding projects for my sewing and mixed media needs, is a source of inspiration.  I love looking up color schemes and photos that help push me in a direction with my cards and projects.  I had created THIS CARD that I was inspired from PINTEREST for, then I was thinking how cute it would look as a little mini note card…

Simple Regarding Dahlias Thank Yous

To make these you simply take a 12×12 piece of whisper white card stock and cut it in half at 6″, then cut the two 6″ pieces every 3″ so you have eight 3″x6″ pieces of whisper white.  Score each one of those at 3″, right down the center for each one.

Then I stamped them all while they were flat, before I folded on the score line- it makes it so much easier to stamp on them that way.

I placed a post-it note above the score line, to protect what would be the BACK of the card from being stamped on.  Then I placed the smaller 1-1/4″ x 2-1/2″ piece of whisper white on the front of the note card, then I stamped my Dahlia image down onto the note card front, from the REGARDING DAHLIA set.  When I lift up the stamp the little piece of card stock was stuck to it, so be careful when you are removing it as not to smear the image.

The post-it note kept the Dahlia from getting on the back since the note card is smaller than the image itself.  Then I mounted the stamped strip piece to a 1-3/8″x 2-5/8″ piece of Blushing Bride card stock to hide the “un”stamped area around where the little strip was when I stamped the card front.

Unique FUN spotlight technique

I think these turned out SOOOO cute!! Oh and to make them even better, can you guess what I did??

YOU GOT IT- I covered the highlighted area with a TON of Dazzling Details and it looked SOOOO pretty! I know it’s hard to see in the photo but it turned out SO great!  I decided to make a bunch for all my HOSTESS CLUB MEMBERS this month because they were SO cute and SO adorable I just had to!

    Also, is there a way to stamp using a glue so that I can then sprinkle glitter on the glue and then the image will be glittered? I have tried a glue pad from another company but the glitter doesn’t hold too well. I even used an extra fine glitter.

    Does the Dazzling Details on the Thank You card take a long time to do? How long per card?

      The way I did it, yes… it does/did take a long time… I did a large area AND I did like 40 cards so that would have taken a while no matter what, LOL!! I don’t put it on very thick so it only takes about 5 min to dry. I lay them all out on the floor, assembly style- glitter them up, leave to dry and then gather and store. Easy Peasy… I do it while Real Housewives is on, Bwahahahaha!
