Crafty Collaborations - Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to For the Love of Stamping. Today I am participating in the Crafty Collaboration SaleABration blog hop! I love the SaleABration promotion!  It is also nice to get FREE products! Don't you agree?

Be Dazzling
For this hop I am showing you the Paper Piecing technique using the new Be Dazzling 6 x 6 paper from the SAB catalog. I love the chunky, glittery, sparkly bits on this paper.  I reminds me of a disco ball.

I started with a base layer of Basic White and then added a layer of Evening Evergreen. 

On top of the Evergreen is a layer of Basic White that I ran through my die cutting machine 3 times with one of the dies from the Merry Snowflake bundle to create the background texture.

To create the focal point of the card I used the Delicate Baubles dies.  First I ran the die through with the Be Dazzling paper and then again using Soft Succulent paper to fill in the tree (paper piecing technique).

You can never have too much "bling" so I then added 3 of the blue adhesive backed gems to the snowflakes and a 2021-2023 In Color rhinestone to the tree star.

Behind the die cut is a layer of Evening Evergreen. This is another one of the dies from the Delicate Bauble dies.  I used the same technique to create the textured background as I did on the Basic White layer. 

I added some more "bling" by punching out some stars from the Be Dazzling paper and then added the sentiment to the bottoms.

Thank you for stopping by today. Be sure to check out the other posts for more SAB ideas!
