52 Christmas Card Throwdown Enamel Dots

Another challenge set by Jacqueline the hostess this month on 52 CC Throwdown

A stash challenge using Enamel Dots

I made my own dots for this card using Stampin' Up! Crystal Effects and coloured them with the Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive Blendabilities

I squeezed blobs of dots onto the acrylic mat and let them dry overnight, then coloured over them with the Stampin' Blendabilities

The baubles are from Cheerful Christmas and for the swirl I used a Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker on the larger stamp in this set picking out just the swirl

The sentiment is from Endless Wishes
Here is a closer look at my Enamel Dots

I like how this turned out

Do check out what the other design team came up with here

Until next time

I love your enamel dots Peg - so much easier than the ones I made! Now all I need are the blendabilities :D Great card too, and great minds think alike with the sentiment - is it one of your favourites too? Have a lovely weekend, Gill xx

At hanks Gill, definitely one of my favourite sentiments x

Thanks Annette, hope you have a go at making them x

What a good idea to make your own enamel dots - and that way they match perfectly! I do like this clean, simple card - so pretty. Such a nice folksy feel too!

Interesting to hear how you made your dots Peg and they look so good. Was the bell also coloured or did you do that too?
