Dazzles & Patterned Paper


Another fun thing you can do with Dazzles, since they have so much negative space usually, is apply them over patterned paper, which will give a very different look than using them on plain paper.  That’s what I did here:


These particular stickers are by Magenta. I affixed them to a sheet of patterned paper, and then fussy-cut them out.  I then mounted them on a card front of complementary paper from the same stack, and popped one up for interest.

The paper is from the same “Bright Punch-Outs” stack from Wal-Mart that I used recently here, the first stack I ever bought. I really do enjoy this stack. I’ll be sad when it’s gone.

The sentiment is an epoxy sticker from Cloud 9 Designs, mounted on some silver foil tape from Ranger.  It says, “To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides.”  When I was looking for a sentiment, I wanted to use these epoxy stickers, and I thought, the sun …. leaves … photosynthesis — leaves feel the sun and turn energy into matter … so that’s the thinking there.

I am going to enter this card into these challenges:

Shopping Our StashEmbellish Me — you have to create your own embellishment.  I created the leaves out of stickers and patterned paper.  I also kind of created the sentiment by backing it with foil tape.  And using the first paperp stack I ever bought is *really* shopping your stash!
