A Dreamy Challenge

The Stamper's Dream Dream Team is excited to announce that they will be doing a Dreamy Challenge the second Thursday of every month. You can participate too! Just make a card with glitter on it, and link it to the comments section of Michelle's blog, and if you upload to Splitcoaststampers (we'd love to see it there too), just use keyword SDDC1. To make this challenge even sweeter, Michelle has some awesome Holiday goodies which she will be giving to a winner chosen by Random.org. This week we're working with a new product by Doodlebug that Michelle just started carrying!! Glitter is so popular right now, and so fun to use, so we're using the Doodlebug product called "Stick With It". It's two sheets of double-sided adhesive shapes. The one we're using is called "Fancy That" and it's full of swirls and sentiments. All you do is peel off the shape (making sure to keep the top protective strip in place) and lay the shape where you would like to feature it on your card or project. As soon as you have your design laid out, peel off the protective strip and apply your Doodlebug Sugar Coating glitter, rubbing over it with your fingers to make sure it adheres well. Doodlebug has a fabulous line of Sugar Coating Glitter, with a variety of colors, that each of the Design Team members is using. For my card, I used one of the flourishe adhesives and a little flower (that's on the moon). I also ran the scalloped piece of cardstock through my Xyron and added glitter to that too.


A little tip: After you adhere your double sided adhesive to your project, before removing the protective tape, rub your embossing buddy over the paper. That will help to keep the excess glitter from sticking. After removing the tape and applying the glitter, flip the paper over and flick it with your finger a few times. That should also help to remove the glitter without it blowing up into your face. So, check out the Stamper's Dream DT's blogs to see the different ways this product can be used!!
