Dazzling Dimensions ~ Technique Hop-April

Welcome to our monthly Technique Blog Hop! Each month on the 15th we feature a different technique and you'll be amazed with all the wonderful ideas this talented group shares!

The blog before mine belongs to Brandi Robinson. All you have to do is click the link in each post to go to the next blog. Easy, right!

For my card I used a pattern in our NEW Make It from Your Heart How-to Book. You get both layout and card patterns with a detailed cutting guide and examples. It's a great way to start a project. 

The Lovely paper pack is full of beautiful and yes....lovely papers. On my card I used 3 of the papers and I love how they look together. 

I stamped the small bouquet of flowers and the sentiment. Using markers I colored the bouquet using light and medium colors to create some dimension to the look. This is just one way to create dimension!

Another way to create dimension is to use foam tape to pop something up. One the bouquet I used Thin Foam Tape and you can see how nice it makes the bouquet stand out from the background layers.

In this close-up photo you can get a better look at the popped up bouquet. I've added some more dimension by using Pearls for the flower center. One final way I added dimension was to use sequins as another detail of the design. All of these are very easy ways to create dimension on your projects!

  1. I love the touch of liquid pearls that you added and the dimension it adds. Very pretty.

  2. Pretty card! love that angled look.

  3. I love this paper! I like the triangle inside too! Such a simple way to do more...I sometimes think the inside is too boring compared to the outside.
