Sparkly Fun Friday -- Recycle with Rockabilly

Sparkly Fun Fridays features a sparkly or glittery project using shimmer paints, embossing powders, glitters, rhinestones... anything shiny to welcome the weekend in a fun way!!!

Hi everyone,

Happy shimmering friday!!

Today as I was trying (again!!) to clean my stamp room, I found one of the little SU! embellishments boxes, EMPTY...I couldn't throw it away so I decided to do something with it NOW!! Here's what I came up with:

Since I just finished the second page of my 2-page layout from wednesday, all my rockabilly DSP was out with its coordinating cardstock, I just jumped into it. I decorated the little box and made a set of mini note/tag cards to fit into it:

I made four of them very quickly with our extra-large flower punch. layered some CS and DSP circles , addind a big brad, I sprayed some homemade shimmer mist (sadly, it doesn't show on the photo but they really are very shimmery) and then added dazzling diamonds with my 2-way glue pen.

In order to get a mini card with punches, first fold your CS, then, slide it through the punch. Punch while leaving a little bit of the fold uncut, so fun!!

Have a nice stampin' day, I sure will since my friend is coming over for a well deserved scrapbook night !!

J'adore ce papier! L'Idée des petites cartes est géniale! C'est toujours pratique d'en avoir sous la main pour un cadeau de dernière minute! Beau travail, encore!
