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!

One more:
