Sparkly affair - Dress My Craft's Sparkling dust and Frosted Sugar Powder

Hello Everyone!

I'm Manu and this month we would be focusing on another wonderful product from Dress My Craft, it's all about Sparkling dust, Frosted Sugar Powder and the Crystal Ice cubes all through this month on the Dress My Craft blog!! So be ready to be dazzled by another series of absolute gorgeousness!

I hope you all enjoyed seeing the DT inspirations with the gorgeous sequins last month, if not, it's time to scroll back to the last months archives and get dazzled by the awesome sequins!

Sparkle is every crafter's delight to work with and the most gorgeous product to add that dazzling sparkle to the projects are Sparkling dust and the Frosted Sugar powder. These amazing sparkly affair comes in a around 25gm jars and thus there is no hassles on how to store and work with these. The super cute jars makes it very easy to work them with!

Here's a glimpse to what I made with these sheer delights.
It's one long post with lots of pictures, so hold one and grab that cuppa coffee!

Gorgeous Florals
I'm gonna start with something I love making but I really don't get time to make them often!! FLOWERS!!! I'm a total dreamy person and I love incorporating flowers in all my creations!
Here are a few filler flowers I made for using in my projects!

These are punch out flowers and I have used simple punches to make these. The petals are molded by yet another utility tool known as groove tools. The Groove tool is a must if you love making flowers!

The paper used to make the flowers are the Dress My Craft Oriental paper which is a 285 gsm paper and is a delight to make flowers. Another keeper for sure if you are into flower making.
The flowers are punched out and coloured with the Ranger Inks and then shaped using the groove tools. A little hole in then made in the middle to insert the pollen and then a lot of sparkling dust is added once the flower is coated with a generous coat of Ranger Crackle Medium.
Keep the flowers for sometime to set the things in place and you will have the most gorgeous blooms in your hands!

Here are a few more shots of the filler flowers!

Here's another flower I did with the Frosted Sugar powder.

Checkout the sheer gorgeousness of the flowers. These powders have the tendency to bring out the best in the flowers!! Once coat of these powders and the flowers are transformed!

I'm gonna bombard another round of these pretty flower's, Can't help, I couldn't stop clicking the pictures!! These powders are true to their word!

I can actually keep looking at these pretty ones forever!! I hope you liked them tooo!!

Handmade Card

Here's another way of incorporating the sparkling dust into your projects and make them class apart!
Handmade cards never go out of style and receiving a handmade goodness sure makes one's day!

To make the card, I stamped the blooms from the Mudra Stamp set and coloured them using the Zig markers. I then took an MFT alpha die and die cut the word SMILE. The same word was die cut several times with the cardstock and then each alpha stacked on top of each other to give a raised embossed look. Before staking I coated the word SMILE with sparking dust to add that extra charm!!

Sparkly Embellishments!

I so love incorporating embellishments in my projects and why not some with the sparkling dust??
Here are a few embellishments I made to go as charms on the album cover in my next baby album!

To make these embellishments, I stamped a few of my favorite stamps and coloured them using the Zig Markers. I then highlighted a few ares by using sparkling dust and then adhered a strong backing on these stamps and fussy cut them out! Added Eye-lets and a few blings and they are good to go!

Shabby Chic card:

The fillers and the flowers I made earlier, are used in the next shabby chic card!

The Flowers and the fillers came out gorgeous and I couldn't resist myself from making this pretty shabby chic card!
To make the card, 6 squares of 2.5 inch inch are adhered to the base panel and then this base panel is adhered to the cardstock. The corners of the squares are coloured with a little white acrylic color and also distressed. Once this base card is ready, adhere the blooms as per the favorite arrangement.

I hope you all liked the projects and I hope I have temped you enough to grab your share of these products before they go out of stock.
Thank you for putting up with me till the end of this long post!!
