Ideas using clear iridescent sequin flowers

August 23rd, 2011

Hello Everybody,

We have a special offer on crystal blossom sequins this week. 30% off . I’m using the iridescent sequins today because they are my favourite sequins to use, so versatile, I use them on wedding cards, birthday cards, Christmas cards, baby cards.

I’ve also got a great idea on how to use the sequins on Christmas baubles, but at the moment the idea is just simmering away in my craft laboratory :) . . . so watch this space!

I used the sequins as a border around my sentiment, I love the effect the iridescent sequins give when you stick them onto a coloured background, they’re like little chameleons they just seem to pick up any colour. On some cards that i make they remind me of small bubbles.

I have used a 6×6 square card and covered the front with a free Christmas paper from a craft magazine. The scalloped aperture was cut out using a nestabilities die. I have finished off the card with matching turquoise polka dot ribbon.

Behind the aperture, I have used acetate to create a window effect. I then stuck this snowflake peel off on which i bought from the Stamperama Craft show at Stevenage a few weeks ago. I’ve then used sticky gems to bling up the snowflake, using a mixture of colours including light blue gems, pink gems and a selection of clear gems from a pack of mixed sized clear gems. I think the colours go really well together . . . bling . . bling !
