Casual Fridays (bling)



Hi everyone!
I'm in a super good mood and hope it stays with me for a few days :) 

The glammed up card above is for this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge to BLING IT ON! *chuckle*


I used Copics to color large clear rhinestones an array of glitsy colors for this fun challenge, and adhered them to a thin strip of white CS so they would show up a bit better on the black base. Sentiment was embossed with white glimmer e.p (hard to see the shine), and I added a tiny swirl of clear gems above it.
Nothing too spectacular, but it's bold, makes a statement, and is still clean & simple! (CAS)
*grin*

CAS-ual Fridays is sponsored by SimonSaysStamp again this week. 
They really have some incredible deals on all sorts of stuff, including some awesome bling, see HERE!

     Don't forget, this week we are looking for our next Guest Star Stamper! 
So put on your dancing shoes and get tapping away on your CAS blinged-up project!
 You might just be the next guest designer for CAS-ual Fridays!

Thanks for stopping by,
XOXO

Great card. The white text on the black background is very elegant. The rainbow coloured rhinestones make it fun.

Love this card. So simple but so effective. The black really makes the design stand out. Inspiring . . .

Michelle said...

Oh but it IS spectacular, Miss Dana! And I am jealous of embossing sentiments that way too. Have no patience for it. But man the outcome is so worth it. Love the perfectly not-overblinged bling. Hope your good mood stays too!

Hi Dana! What a great job you did on this card! First of all, you embossed with white on a black card and I don't see one speck of stray embossing powder!! Awesome! I also love how you colored clear stones, I am going to remember that trick! Super card!
Happy stamping!
