Adding Dazzle to your card!

Take your fun project from pretty to Dazzling!!  With one quick technique you can add subtle sparkle or go major sparkle depending on the style you want!  See this quick technique on how and let me know what you think with a comment!
Create this card with my previous post...
Add DAZZLE with:
Aqua Painters (#103954)
(Optional, Re-Inker of choice)
Dazzling Details (#124117)
 
Dazzling Details is a Glitter Adhesive... It comes in three options (Cherry Cobbler, Silver Sparkle and Dazzling Details).  I love the iridescent of the Dazzling Details. 
 
Place a dollop of the liquid glitter on a surface... I like to use the lids of my accessories for this technique as I can rince them when they are done and it's not a precious plate or dish - lol... I also have a collection of Pringles lids I keep for these uses... THIS is the time that you could add a dot or two of color from any of our re-inkers... swirl and you could paint colored glitter for any project! 
Dab my Aqua Painter tip into the Dazzling Details. Paint the images or just accent.  Using the Aqua Painter to apply will actually help clean the lid/surface as the water will clean up the liquid glitter.  Keep a napkin, one corner a little damp, and clean the surface when you are done. CLICK HERE to see other like projects.
I accented the water-colored flowers but continued it on the punched flowers from the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper.  It helps tie it all together.
A fun dash of sparkle really does add Dazzle!  It's fun, fast and quick.  It will require a little dry time but a minute at max, unless you use an excess of this to color a project in.  Non-toxic and acid-free, it's wonderful to use on even the most precious of projects.
I hope you had fun with me on this cute, quick technique!  I try to post daily....

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
