As promised I thought I would share with you a quick way that I came up with to make 'specific' home made enamels dots. Now, don't get me wrong.... I am still very much addicted to any and all that you can purchase from the crafty stores, and if I were to win the Lottery tomorrow, I would make a trip to a craft store and pick up each and every package of them that they had in stock. lmbo... Yes, I am an enamel dot addict and I admit it.
So with that disclaimer out of the way I thought I would try my hand at showing you a little tutorial that my DH Madison helped me to take pictures of.
First off you will need a small circle punch. I would have loved to have an even small one, but for now I am working with this size that is a bit smaller than a dime would be. You will also need some Glossy Accents, or in my case, I have this little set of 'Crystal Coat Glaze'. It worked ok, but next time I am going to use my Glossy Accents. You will also need some small glue dots and of course your choice of either cardstock or patterned paper. I wanted to use some of the patter papers that I was using on the rest of my card, so I picked out this light blue patterned paper that was easy to punch out.
|Just gathering my supplies.|
|I punched out a few more that I was going to use, as I wanted to have options|
once I started to put my card together.
|Once you punch out your dots just put them face up on the glue dots so that they|
don't move around and you are able to put on your glossy element.
|I used a toothpick to spread around my Crystal Coat Glaze (Glossy Accents)|
that way I didn't put on a super thick amount. This allows it to dry quicker and then
if you want you can always add a second coat.
I had so much fun making this card and using my own glossy dots. I also as you can see have become a little addicted to heat embossing and even thought the mittens are from a Hot Off the Press mini set of stamps I think it turned out pretty good.
Thanks for stopping by. I also want to say "Hi" to Krystal and "welcome to my blog. So nice to have you here." Hope you all have a wonderful day tomorrow. Talk at you later.
