I’m probably the wrong person to write this blog post today, as I’m not a huge rhinestone user. My 12-year-old daughter tends to use up whatever I have lying around the craft room. When it comes to the shiny bling, Susan Opel is definitely more of our in-house expert. But I have to say, these projects have me convinced that some well-placed bling can definitely make a project.
Accentuate the positive. This lovely shaped card would not be the same without the orange rhinestones that Megan Aaron used on her Aloha Flower Card to accentuate the flower and tie in the sentiment.
Keeping the shiny at bay. Instead of using something really shiny, Sarah J. Moerman added some excitement to her Soft-Serve Ice Cream card with pink and red accent dots.
Tis the season. Rhinestones just beg to be put on New Year’s and Christmas cards. Lindsay Amrhein livens up her card with the fabulous addition of clear rhinestones to her Cityscape New Year card.
Ship shape. In her Nice Having You Around card, Teri Anderson does a great job of adding to her already eclectic card design by using a red rhinestone flourish and an accent gem.
Yep, I think I’ll have to try adding a little bling to my next card project. What about you? Do you like a well-placed rhinestone?
