Papertrey Ink's March 2013 Blog Hop: Sequins

Welcome fellow Papertrey Ink lovers! 

I am going to try to make this sort of short and sweet as I know you are hopping along to so many amazing blogs and it is also way too late when I type this.

I went with making a rainbow set of cards with the same design, dies and stamps.  In my sequin collection I found a box of multi-colored swirl sequins have had for long that I don't recall when or exactly where I bought them.  I separated the colors out and chose colors for the cards I made from the color families I found.

I just got my March release order and I (like many I am sure) was over the moon for Maile Belles' new Birthday Style and Bountiful Banners sets.  I stamped the solid streamer on a piece of white cardstock.  I die cut the Boutiful Banners die from white cardstock as well and stamped the sentiments using the same ink.  I adhered the sequins onto the streamers.  I first tried glue, but found mini glue dots to be easier and less mess.  The little HB circle is adhered with dimensional adhesive.

I adhered this panel with dimensional adhesive to a white cardstock card base that I adhered a matching patterned paper stripe of paper to.  And that's it!  I love how fun these all turned out together and I could easily replicate this design for any occasion.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I know I will inspired by what you make!

Happy creating,
