#134 Dazzler Birthday

Hi Crafters,

I will do a video on this card but not today. I'm not feelin' it - ha. Getting out the camera and doing the card again. This card took 4 hours to design and figure out, lots of mess ups while playing with the new Dazzlers. The card isn't hard per se but there were surprisingly a number of supplies used and a new technique.

The second pic is of a slanted view so you can see the shimmer from the Dazzler paste I used. It is soooo shiny and fun. It's a cool product.

The product list is a tad long ;-(  sorry about that. I don't normally use a gazillion items in one card. I just couldn't help myself.

Also, for the KiwiLane templates please visit my Kiwi Lane website to order or email me if you have questions. https://stampinmania.kiwilaneinstructor.com/

Clear Wink of Stella (doesn't show on the pic very well but it is on the flowers that were stamped and die cut out)

Here's a pic of the stencil I used: Sometimes you just need a visual more than just a name
Steps for getting the initial background created using Distress Ink and Dazzlers.
  1. Stencil on a white piece of cardstock cut at 5 1/4 x 4. Stencil using the Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and an Ink Blending tool.
  2. Slide the stencil a little off-center from what you just did and apply the Coral Me Crazy Dazzler paste. You can use a pallet knife, plastic knife, or paint brush.
  3. It will take awhile for the Dazzlers to dry - you can use your heat tool (I did but I still cut it too early in my die cutting machine)
  4. Cut out using the Lawn Fawn largest Stitched Rectangle Die in the Small Rectangle Die set.
I promise to do a video but this should get ya started. I love using stencils and off-setting them to make a shadow look.

Happy Crafting, Have a Blessed Day,
