A Stamper's Dream Dreamy Challenge!!

The Stamper's Dream Dream Team is excited to announce that they will be doing a Dreamy Challenge the second Thursday of every month. And you can participate too. Just make a card with glitter on it, and link it to the comments section of Michelle's blog, and if you upload to Splitcoaststampers.com (we'd love to see it there too), just use keyword SDDC1. And to make this challenge even sweeter, (pun intended), Michelle has some awesome Holiday goodies which she will be giving to a winner chosen by Random.org.

This week we're working with a new product by Doodlebug, that Michelle just started carrying!! Glitter is so popular right now, and oh so fun to use, so we're using the Doodlebug product called "Stick With It". It's two sheets of double-sided adhesive shapes. The one we're using is called "Fancy That" and it's full of swirls and sentiments.

All you do is peel off the shape (making sure to keep the top protective strip in place) and lay the shape where you would like to feature it on your card or project. As soon as you have your design laid out, peel off the protective strip and apply your Doodlebug Sugar Coating glitter, rubbing over it with your fingers to make sure it adheres well. Doodlebug has a fabulous line of Sugar Coating Glitter, with a variety of colors, that each of the Design Team members is using.
Flock can also be used, and Michelle has some awesome colors of Fun Flock too!! I made a card with the Fancy That (Doodlebug) Adhesives and Fun Flock, awhile back. Click HERE to see how the flock looks.

A little tip: After you adhere your Double sided adhesive to your project, before removing the protective tape, rub your embossing buddy over the paper. That will help to keep the excess glitter from sticking. After removing the tape and applying the glitter, flip the paper over and flick it with your finger a few times. That should also help to remove the glitter without it blowing up into your face.

So,
check out the Stamper's Dream DT's blogs to see the different ways this product can be used. They're a talented and creative group. You won't want to miss their designs!!

Now for the other details of my card. I stamped the Ornate Seasons (Inkadinkado) image with Black Onyx Versafine onto Crabapple Medium (Prismatics) and used my Quickie Glue Pen to add Beetle Black Sugar Coating to the bird. I also added White Sugar Coating to the edges of my flourishes to highlight them.

The paper edges are ink distressed with Rose Romance (SU) and Slate (Adirondack Dye Ink), and the corners are punched with the Corner Ticket Punch (SU). Finally, I added a bit more bling with some Rhinestone Stickers (Kaisercraft).


Supplies:
Stamps - Ornate Seasons (Inkadinkado)
Paper - DaisyD's, Crabapple Medium (Prismatics), Black
Ink - Black Onyx (Versafine), Rose Romance (SU), Slate (Adirondack Dye)
Accessories - Stick With It Adhesive Transfers (Doodlebug), Rhinestone Stickers (Kaisercraft), Corner Ticket Punch (SU), Sugar Coating Glitter (Doodlebug), Quickie Glue Pen
