Fabulous Finds Friday — Hot Fix Gems

Hot fix gemstones have been around a long time, but they never intrigued me… until I got a battery-operated, easy-to-use hot fix tool from Imaginisce. Now I want to put hot fix bling on everything! (So much easier than dealing with glue and tiny pieces.)

Take a look:

The rhinestones and metallic pieces have glue on the back. You simply touch your hot fix tool to the top, count to about 10, and it melts the glue.

Here’s a close-up:

Here’s a detailed look at the butterflies, which were embellished with Ranger’s Liquid Pearl Gold.

The flowers, butterflies and sentiments (all Hero Arts) were stamped in another Fabulous Find from the beginning of the year — ColorBox’s Limited Edition colors Plumeria (purple) and Mint (green), both chalk inks. Aren’t they deep and luscious? (the green flower on the left of the “Smiles” card was hand cut; the others were cut using matching Hero Arts/Sizzix dies.) The striped paper is some scrap stock I saved from an old folder. I attached the front and back using washi tape. The scalloped border used a Stampin’ Up! punch.

Thanks for stopping by!
