Fabulous Finds Friday — Sparkly Dragonfly

Here’s a project I’ve been putting off for a while. I don’t know what took me so long!

Twice I have left my Kindle — once in a dark booth in a restaurant and once in a locker. I left it because I didn’t see it … my Kindle cover is a dark blue.

So I blinged it up:

How cute is that? And how easy! I simply die cut a piece of plastic-like bling from The Buckle Boutique, using a Sizzix dragonfly die. (I wrote about this rhinestone fabulous find here) and here. The bling is self-adhesive.

It makes me happy to look at! I had never used this bling sheet in a die cutter before … I don’t know what took me so long…

Bling It Up Friday … Simply

I’ve already raved about the sheets of bling from the Buckle Boutique (here), but I couldn’t resist sharing three more simple cards, all jazzed up:

I ran a piece of white cardstock through my Cuttlebug Damask embossing folder then added a strip of Buckle Boutique’s gold bling and a flower (Imaginisce, Bazzill Basics collection), embellished with a pearl brad from K&Company.

A detailed view:

Same technique, different card:

The rosette was made from a Tim Holtz/Sizzix die and affixed using Glue Arts’ 3D Raisens; the rainbow bling is also from the Buckle Boutique. The embossing folder is a Cuttlebug folder. The cardstock is from Stampin’ Up!

Oh, how I love these sheets of self-adhesive vinyl jewels from The Buckle Boutique! Check out this Fabulous Find:

Isn’t this a sparkly card? These bedazzling gems are actually vinyl sheets, so they are easy to cut and oh, so pretty and sparkly. It’s hard to believe they are not actual rhinestones.

Take a gander at the multi-colored sheet:
