San Antonio Regionals--Part 3

Finally, the last of the samples I had made up for my presentation at the San Antonio Regional Workshop Wow/Demonstrator Booth portion of the day!  The third section of my presentation was showing how you could use Dazzling Diamonds and Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to create backgrounds. 

So for this card, I used my 1" Circle Punch and the circle punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack to punch out circles from the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet.  I used my bone folder to burnish the edges (making it easier to peel the back off) and peeled off the backing.  I face planted the sticky side of the adhesive sheet on top of the Whisper White card stock.  I repeated this with all the circles creating the desired pattern.  I used an Embossing Buddy to help cut down on static, and then peeled off the other side of the backing on all the circles.  I poured Dazzling Diamonds Glitter over the top and brush off any excess.  Now you have a fun sparkly background.  :-)  

A side shot: 

And of course the possibilities are endless if you change up the shapes, patterns, and colors of glitter!  

This card is 4 1/4" by 4 1/4" and also shows off the new Mouthwatering stamp set that is found in the new Occasions Mini Catalog and well as some of the 2011-2013 In Colors and coordinating accessories.

Paper:  Calypso Coral, Whisper White
Accessories:  Designer Printed Brads (In Color Assortment), Wisteria Wonder Ruffled Ribbon, 1" Circle Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets, Dazzling Dimaonds, Cutter Kit, dimensionals

And here is another (Valentine, Anniversary, Wedding) sample I created for the display board.  For this card, I adhered the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to the Regal Rose card stock and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Simple Letters Dies to create the l, v, and e letters.  After they went through the Big Shot, then I peeled off the second side of the Adhesive Sheet and added the Dazzling Diamonds

To create the heart 'o' letter, I used the new Framelits Hearts Collection.  I used the two smallest hearts, lined them up on top of the Regal Rose card stock + Adhesive Sheet, with the smallest heart centered inside of the slightly larger heart.  Then I ran it through the Big Shot.  

For the base of the card, I used my Color Spritzer Tool and Regal Rose marker to add a little texture.  The 'you' tag uses the Fabulous Phrases stamp set and the Jewelry Tag punch. The letters are up on dimensionals. 

Stamps:  Fabulous Phrases
Ink:  Early Espresso and Regal Rose marker
Paper:  Regal Rose, Early Espresso, Whisper White
Accessories:  Framelits Hearts Collection, Alphabet Simple Letters Die, Big Shot, Jewelry Tag Punch, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch, Linen Thread, Early Espresso grosgrain ribbon, Color Spritzer Tool, Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets, Dazzling Diamonds, dimensionals
