Today we will look at card making ideas with lots of bling! If you are all about the bling, you will enjoy this. And…..if you enjoy this idea, be sure to click on the "Tuesday's Techniques and Tips" button in the column on the right to find out how you can get exclusive techniques and videos from me each week.
This cool homemade card gives a modern take on a traditional flower theme. It is done entirely with Stampin' Up! Punches and the Basic Rhinestones! The trickiest part of making this was peeling the rhinestones off the packaging all in one piece! The video below the picture shows the entire process in detail.
The key to pulling off a long string of rhinestones is to hold the rhinestones straight and slowly peel the paper away, using the tip of a scissors whenever needed to pry the paper away. A single rhinestone of a larger size accents the flower.
The color combination of black and red and silver, along with the off-centered circles of the flower, make for a dramatic look! The flower petals were made by cutting into the punched out scallop circle between each scallop and then bending each scallop to create a three dimensional look.
Supplies: 1 3/4 inch Scallop Circle Punch (p. 210 #119854 $16.95), 1 3/8 inch Circle Punch (p. 212 #119860 $15.95), 1 1/4 inch Circle punch (p. 212 119861 $15.95), 3/4 inch Circle Punch (p.212 #119873 $10.95), Basic Rhinestones (p. 198 #119246 $4.95)
I own every one of the Stampin' Up Punches and I use them often. As you can see from this card, its fun to have all of the circle punches so you try out different looks. So….I confessed to owning them all. How many do you own?
And, if a little bling is good, then a lot must be better! One package of the rhinestones (or the basic pearls) give you lots of rhinestones in different sizes, so you can add bling to your hearts content. Come up with your own card making ideas with lots of bling!
