Add Bling with Dazzles!

A Happy St. Patricks Day to you Crafters! Since it’s St. Patties day and there is talk of leprechauns, and gold in the air. . . It got me thinking what sparkles like gold? DAZZLES™!  I don’t know about you but I can never have too many Hot Off The Press Dazzles™! I love the simplicity and ease of placing them, and the “WOW” factor they always bring to a project! The best part about this product is definitely the versatility of Dazzles™.  You can paper piece, add them to glitter surfaces, add color with pens or pencils, layer them, or simply use them on their own!

 We have so many different colors of our Jewel Border Dazzles™ to choose from, but you know what? You don’t have to choose! You can try mixing your Jewel Border Dazzles™ for a custom background!

LaNae created this vibrant card using the Purple Tiny Flower Dazzles™.  I just love how she used them to create a wreath! There are 3 sheets that include 362 Dazzles™ in all! With these Dazzles™ you get the look of a heat-embossed image—but all you do is peel and stick!

The possibilities are endless with this sweet set! You’ll get the word “Love” and 5 additional hearts. The “Love” measures 2 7/8” wide and the “Hearts” are 4¼”, 4 1/8”, 3¼”, 3” and 5/8” wide.

In this first card creation made by Teresa you’ll see she’s used the Love & 5 Hearts lace border hearts with our Robin’s Red paper set. On the inside the combination of the Love & 5 Hearts scroll and solid heart makes for a sweet elegant touch.

I created this next card by using only the Love & 5 Hearts scroll heart repeatedly so that I could create a focal point, and so that the design would complement the sentiment from the Heart to Heart Stamp “You’re One of a Kind”!
