Add a Little Dazzle and Stampendous – Blog Hop Day #4

Welcome to Day 4 of the amazing partnership blog hop between Add a Little Dazzle and Stampendous. Chance to win prizes and lots of projects to be inspired by, what else can one ask for? I am having fun sharing with you the projects I created using Stampendous Snowflake Die Set – DCS5069, Cling Delicate Snow – CRS5069. And for today’s project I’m combining these sets with Add a Little Dazzle’s Wondrous White metal sheet, and Golden Glimmer metal sheet.

My project for today is a place setting in white and gold, perfect to decorate your Christmas table.


The place setting consists of a cutlery holder and a place card. The cutlery holder is made of white cardstock and has an open pocket to place a napkin and a cutlery set for one. I dry embossed the pocket and decorated it with two heat embossed snowflakes. The large gold snowflake was heat embossed in white and the medium white snowflake was heat embossed in gold. Both were die cut afterwards using the matching die set.
 

The place card is made using a partial die cutting technique with the help of Snowflake Die Set – DCS5069 I basically placed the large snowflake die on the edge of a 5″x 4 1/2″ piece of cardstock and ran it through a die cutting machine making sure I only cut half the snowflake on the front. Then I ran it again through the die cutting machine on the other side making sure I only cut a fourth of the snowflake on the back. Right where the fourth part of the snowflake cut ends I scored and folded. I decorated the place card the same way I did with the cuttery holder.

I hope you liked my project, that you find it inspiring, and that you find it interesting to try out. I have one more project for you tomorrow, and it’s a complementary project to these two I just showed you, so don’t forget to stop by!

Add a Little Dazzle and Stampendous – Blog Hop Day #3

This is week there is lots of excitement at Add a Little Dazzle since we’ve partnered with Stampendous and all week long you will have the opportunity to see amazing projects created by both design teams, using Stampendous stamps and dies and Add a Little Dazzle craft metal.

As every Wednesday today we also have our Dazzling Diva Challenge: Home for the Holidays! My card for today features Baby Blue Metal Sheet, Snowflake Die Set – DCS5069, Cling Delicate Snow – CRS5069.

To make my card first I stamped and heat embossed this elegant and gorgeous snowflake various times to create a background on the craft metal piece. I used pearlescent powder to give it a subtle sparkle. Next I used the silver backing of the metal sheet to heat emboss three snowflakes in white. I die cut them with their coordinating die.

I added a piece of gross grain ribbon in white to create contrast and created a snowflake cluster. I used vynil stickers to decorate my snowflakes and some turquoise pearls for the background.

I enjoyed using this amazing snowflake set from Stampendous to create this CAS card. This will be a great card for anyone in the family when Christmas arrives.

I hope you find time to play along our challenge this week, for a chance to win a $15 voucher to the store!

If you’d like to purchase gorgeous metal sheets, embossing pastes, Inka Gold, stencils and more please click HERE.

Guest Design Team – Add a Little Dazzle

I was directly invited to guest design for Add a Little Dazzle’s design team and I couldn’t be happier. Starting today I’ll share projects featuring the beautiful metal sheets from AALD. Also, I will be creating projects for partner companies, so you won’t want to miss a post! Today I am sharing my first card for the weekly Dazzling Diva challenge #42: Photo Inspiration.

I used a Golden Glimmer Metal Sheet for the decorative leaves. I cut them with a die from Cas-ual Fridays. I love how they accentuate the central oval. I was able to fold the leaves around the oval without them tearing. The metal is thin but very resistant. I used UHU all purpose adhesive to attach the leaves (that works very well with the metal sheets).

The ovals were die cut from textured cardstock with Elegant Ovals die cuts. Before attaching the ovals to my card base I added a piece of sand beige gross grain ribbon. The background paper I used is from Fancy Pants Designs and I think it goes along very nicely with the other elements on the card.

I stamped and heat embossed a Portuguese sentiment from Docerela Stamps. The sentiment translates to English as follows: “May today be a very happy day for you”. (If you are wondering why in the world I’d use a Portuguese stamp on one of my cards, the answer is I am Brazilian-Honduran.)

This was the first time I tried metal sheets, and I just love all the possiblities and the many ways one can work with them. It has great qualities, the sole fact they can be die cut is amazing. In the next few weeks you’ll see me do many different things with them, so stay tuned!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

PS: Make sure you check out my canvas posted also today in which I used a metal sheet die cut!
