SSDS Week 43 - Homemade Embellishment

It's Saturday! So that means that it's another DT card for Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays. This week our challenge is to make a homemade embellishment. Our sponsor this week is Glitz Designs, and they have generously donated a paper pack to the winner!

My homemade embellishment is a bee and flower made from a soda can. To make these I cut the top and bottom off a soda can and rinsed and dried it off. CAREFUL the edges are sharp! The next step is to stamp the image you want onto it in black ink. Once the ink has dried carefully cut out your image and voila a metal embellishment! I put some glue on the flower and used diamond dust on it, and for the bee I used some gold glitter glue.

The images I used were from a Stampin' Up set called In Full Bloom. The designer papers and rhinestone squares are from our sponsor Glitz!

I hope you enjoyed my card and start creating yours to join us at SSDS!

I also used the sketch from Moving Along with the Times and they are having a DT call, so I entered into that challenge!
