Pretty Pink Posh – Sparkle Dots Flower

Hi, Friends!

I’m sharing a unique card today – made of jewels!  The Pretty Pink Posh Sparkle Dots Pattern stamp sets (there are two) make placement of the jewels quick and easy.  For today’s card, I used a leaf/petal stamp to create this flower.

Using my MISTI, I positioned each left to point towards the center.  I only had to do this three times because I rotated my paper 180 degrees with each position.  I stamped the stamp using a very light gray to see dots for positioning the jewels in just the right place.

Before placing the Amethyst jewels down, I first ink-blended some pink to the background using Distress Oxide inks in Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar.  In order to make sure I had enough gems, I laid them all down before gluing to ensure I liked the pattern.  This is a long step – but it makes it worth it since you don’t want to run out of a particular jewel size or color while creating.

Once I knew I had enough jewels, I used jewel tool and glued down each gem using some Multi Medium Matt adhesive.  This is a labor of love!  For the center, I cut out a circle and ink-blended it with some more Distress Oxide inks in Squeezed Lemonade and Fossilized Amber.  I added some Lemon Drop jewels to that for added bling.

I finished off this card by layering it over some purple cardstock and added a few more jewels in Ivory to pull it all together.  I hope you like this card!  It takes some time, but it’s somewhat relaxing too!  Have a wonderful weekend!
