House of Cards: Use Enamel Dots


Well hello there, friends!  Guess what?!  It's time for another monthly challenge at House of Cards!  This month, we're focusing on anything that you create...using enamel dots as an embellishment!


I adore enamel dots. I know that it's probably a "fad", but I think this is one that I'll keep using even if it stops being popular!  I own SO MANY enamel dots and shapes that I went a little bit crazy on my card for this month...take a peek...


I started this card by stamping a bunch of circles from the Be Happy stamp set from Paper Sweeties.  I used a variety of colors--Memento Tuxedo Black, Smoky Slate, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, and Summer Sun.  I then placed a bunch of enamel dots over the stamped circles.  The green dots are by Teresa Collins and the other colors are from My Mind's Eye.


I then stamped a sentiment from the Hello Friend stamp set in Lucky Limeade ink and punched it out.  I added a couple more My Mind's Eye enamel dots and popped it up onto the card with dimensional foam.


I LOVE the way this turned out!  I had a scary moment where I thought I had gone overboard with the stamped circles, but I fixed it.  Whew!  Crisis averted! ;)  What are you thinking?  Do you like the way this turned out?  Please leave me a comment to let me know!

That's it for me for now!  Thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card!  I hope you come and join us at House of Cards--I can't wait to see your creation!  Make sure to check out all the amazing cards from the other DT gals as well--they are all so very talented!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all! :)

Amazing movement on this Mynn, what a FUN card!! Keep those enamel dots coming, they look great!

Petra Swart said...

Oh, what a super fun and cute card, Mynn!!!! Those enamel dots are so pretty!!!! (Oh, I love enamel dots, but they are not available in George and when we went to Cape Town during the Dec holidays I could not believe how much it costs over there!!! Unbelieveably expensive - had to accept that I'll have to make cards without them!!! :( )
Love all the stamped circles in the cheerful colours!!! The small black frame around everything is just perfect to make it a lovely picture!!! Love it, Mynn!!!
