Using the "Dryer Sheet" Technique....Easy & Pretty!

Hello, Blogger Friends! I've got a busy summer going here...haven't been in my craft room as much as usual. But I did manage to come up with a few "quick" cards. Using a pre-colored digital stamped image makes everything alot faster!


I saw the "dryer sheet" technique used on several beautiful samples on the Sweetstamps challenge blog and decided it looked interesting! Had to try it for myself! I also watched a tutorial on it (I don't remember where...sorry!) and that showed how to add glitter so I did that too! That was SO easy...I used spray adhesive on the surface of my image and added the dryer sheet, and after smoothing it down there is a little bit of tackiness between the fibers so if you sprinkle on a little glitter and rub it in a bit it sticks perfectly!

I wasn't too happy with the pictures I took of this card outdoors the other day, so I took a few more in my craft room. This one (above) is a little better, don't you think?

My list of ingredients:
Spellbinders dies - Fleur de Lis Squares
Pre-colored digital image - Doodle Pantry "Poppies-Red"
Bible verse, digi - Doodle Pantry "Psalm 136-1"
Spray adhesive - Aleene's "Tacky Spray"
Card stock - Bazzill white; lt blue & black are from my stash
Bling - EK Success rhinestones
Ultra fine glitter - "Pastel Glitter"
