Say It With Bling!

Today I have a Vintage Wall hanging created with several products from Want2Scrap™ to share with you, so sit back and enjoy this creative journey.
I started out by using a single piece of the Grand Chipboard Album - Labels Eleven. I die cut
and embossed using Spellbinders™ LF-246 Grand Labels Eleven with pattern paper from Le Romantique collection from Graphic 45.
After I die cut and sanded all of the pieces for my wall hanging, I adhered them to the chipboard pieces using Beacon Adhesives Zip Dry.
Want2Scrap™ has these amazing new Nestaboard™ pieces that match Spellbinders™ die templates perfectly, just like the ones pictured here. This makes it quick, simple and easy to create and add dimension to any craft project. The Nestaboard™ featured in this photo is Nestaboard Fleur De Lis Rectangles.

Once you have your pattern paper die cut and adhered to the Nestaboard™, it is time to add the Nestabling™ to make your project pop. I have added the Nestabling™ Fleur de Lis Rectangles Silver and Black Rhinestones.

I die cut and embossed S4-328 Foliage from Spellbinders™ using Core'dinations color core card stock, sanded then inked the leaves. Using Baby LeCreme Pearls I added them to the stalk of the leaves to give a more visual affect.
I die cut S5-042 Fleur de Lis Doily Accent from Spellbinders™ out of F-012 Precious Metals foil, sanded the foil and added a decorative piece from the Le Romantique collection from Graphic 45. I added 72 Count White Pearls from Want2Scrap™ to give the tag that Vintage feel.
I added a cream wired bow with decorative pins and a splash of color to the bow with little bits and pieces of coordinating ribbon tied to the decorative pins. I used the same decorative ribbon and tied it to the Fleur de Lis Nestaboard™ piece. Thank you for stopping by my blog post, I hope you have enjoyed this creative journey and will try using these amazing Want2Scrap™ products.

Quick and beautiful bottle style

**Edit** Just a quick note to let you know we will be announcing the Winners tomorrow for our CHA Sneak Peek Giveaway!! So please be sure to check back tomorrow and maybe you will see your name!

Hi everyone! Today I want to share a quick tag I whipped up to dress up a bottle of bubbly or wine to take as a hostess gift.

I used a cute pre-printed tag from 7gypsies as my base that I've had in my stash for a while now. Using Want2Scrap™ Nestabling Labels Nine Purple Rhinestone, 72 Count - Brown Rhinestones - Self Adhesive, and 72 Count - Light Green Rhinestones - Self Adhesive I was able to build a bling-y bunch of grapes highlighted by that gorgeous purple lables nine Nestabling™.

Simple additions of a black satin bow and some black and white bakers twine do the trick for this fun and easy tag. A great way to build a beautiful gift tag using single bling pieces!

Bring On The Bling...Girlfriend

Today I have a single wall pennant to share with you. I have created this pennant to give to one of my BFF’s. I first die cut all of my pieces at once using the Grand Calibur™ from Spellbinders™, I used the S5-028Nested Pennants, S5-029 Lacey Pennants, S5-030 Fancy Tags Two. For my pattern paper I used the Mish Mash collection from Basic Grey and white card stock. The girlfriend stamp set is Because I care from JustRite Stampers.

Once I had my pieces die cut, I started adhering them together with Beacon Adhesive Zip Dry™. Then to make my project pop off the page I added the amazing Nestabling™ from Want2Scrap™. For the first layer on my pennant I added the Nestabling™ Pennants Silver Rhinestones to the outer edge of the nested pennant as well as to the smaller nested pennants. I think my favorite Nestabling™ has to be the Nestabling™ Fancy Tags Two, for this color choice I chose the Turquoise Rhinestones as it matched the pretty blue of my pattern paper. Just look how the Turquoise Rhinestones pop off the white card stock… pretty!
Well I am off to CHA, I hope you have enjoyed this girlfriend’s pennant and are inspired to create one for your BFF. Crafty Smiles……

I see your true color, BLINGIN' through!

It's a rare card that I create these days that doesn't look a WHOLE lot finer
with the addition of Want2ScrapTM BLING! {Pssst! EVERYTHING looks better
with B L I N G! - but you know THAT already!} There's a shape and color for
NEARLY every occasion and subject matter: I'll testify to THAT, for sure!

But.... once in a while... I do find a color scheme that challenges my
more-than-handsome stash of Want2ScrapTM BLING and sometimes,
in a pinch, I need a bit more color.... {*Gasp!*} Not that there aren't
enough choices, mind you... and cue exhibit A, my glorious stash of

NestablingTM! {Bling*Bling!}

However, once in a while, if I don't have the right hue for WHAT I need to do....

I just DON'T stress, because here's what to do...

Grab some alcohol ink, mixed just as you please, and then dab-away, dab-away...
until it's just as you need! Colorful color in THE perfect tone...
It's perfect I tell ya, and it's as easy as SHOWN!

For more accurate bling color customizing, your fave permanent ink marker
can work wonders on our "free floaters' like the 72 Count and BabyBling swatches!
To get these GORGEOUS gems a tad darker for my needs, a darker blue in two
applications did just the trick!

And after two "coats"....

So, hoard and gather and curate your bling, but if you're in a color bind - YOU know JUST THE THING....!

{This custom-colored bling, might even make YOU sing!}

Here's hoping YOUR day is filled with sparkle!
And here's to getting JUST the right HUE for YOU!

Bling ON, crafty friends.... BLING ONNNNNN!
