Well, I had another sleepless night. Instead of making a card though, I made some candy dots.
In February, I won blog candy that included some Recollections Enamel Dot Stickers.
I figured I could make them myself. It was SO easy and a great way to use up the scraps. I used a regular hand punch on Shimmer Cardstock to punch out a bunch of circles. Then I dabbed on some Crystal Clear Glaze to each punched circle. All it took was just a dot of Crystal Clear Glaze to make them look dimensional.
I let them dry overnight (yep, finally went to bed). They turned out like this:
Here's a birthday card I made using these candy dots.
I love the confetti look the dots gave to my card. Here are some close up pictures:
I paperpieced the cupcake together and used foam tape to adhere to the base of the card.
I framed the sentiment using the Vintage Labels 2 die set. (When you cut out the frame, there's an indentation along the border. I hand-cut along the indentation. I cut out another piece to create the layer).
Supplies used: Hey Cupcake stamp set, Shimmer Cardstock (Bubblegum, Sugar, French Roast, Bermuda, Lime), Bubblegum Ink, Stazon Jet Black Ink, Vintage Labels 2 die set.
Have a great rest of the weekend. It always amazes me how quickly the weekends go by.
