Hello and thanks for dropping by my blog today.
I am so excited to be taking part in the fabulous Kylie Bertucci’s Monthly International Blog Highlights. I see these pop up and I knew that this month was a better time than any to take part with all this fabulous crafty inspiration going on with Sale-a-Bration keeping me inspired – but also all the fresh inspiration that I am seeing flowing around the Stampin’ Up! community.
I am really excited to be sharing with you a card that I made this week that was actually inspired by a technique tip that Stampin’ Up! shared on their social media about colouring the gorgeous Be Dazzling 6×6 Specialty Paper using the Stampin’ Spritzers.
When I saw it…I just knew that I had to give it a go.
I have used that as inspiration in today’s card and if you scroll down, you can see a two and a half minute video where I show just how I put this card together.
Be sure to check the bottom of this post for a link to all the other blogs that have taken part in the fabulous International Highlights.
If not, head here to be inspired.
If you like my card – I’d love your vote, if you felt inspired by my card today.
Here’s a look at the completed card.
Look at all that glimmer.

See the bottom of this post for details on how.
I have combined that fabulous ‘disco ball’ paper with a Stampin’ Spritzer, a Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Ink refill and some rubbing alcohol to create the ‘magic mix’ that allowed me to change up the colour and really make a fun background.
I then combined all this together with some other new products – the Intricate Leaves dies which I have cut in a mixture of Copper Foil, Magenta Madness and Coastal Cabana for a fun colour combination. I have added all of this onto a grounding of some black & white circles cut from the Layering Circles Dies.
Here’s a close up look at the finished card.
You can really see just how much this card shines.
To accent I have added a sentiment from the Many Messages Bundle – but used the brand new sentiment addition to this bundle – Many Happenings.
I love that Stampin’ Up! have given us even more by adding a new sentiment stamp set to combine with this bundle.
I have added a beautiful big Baker’s Twine bow which I changed up by adding some Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends to the end to ‘dip dye’ the colour. How fun does this look?
See the video to check out how I did this.
Finally I added some of the Artistry Blooms sequins for a fun touch and some Wink of Stella, because who doesn’t need more sparkle?
You can see a quick video of how this card all came together below…
