A Little Bit Bubbly with Glue Dots



Don't hide your love!!!  Flaunt it!  Thats right, bring your love to the fore front!  Glue Dots...YES, those little sticky "boogers" that we all love!  I had a great time working with a image from Whimsy and combining it with Glue Dots for this joint collaboration.   Don't skip too far ahead because this post is part of a fun hop...with prizes!



I used the Glue Dots not only as adhesive to assemble the card, but also as the base or platform for some ultra fine glitter.  I love how the Craft Pop-Up Glue Dots added dimension.  It totally worked!!!! 


For this card I used the Mini Glue Dots, Craft Pop-Dots as well as the Regular Glue Dots.  After applying the dots to the front of the card I sprinkled with the micro glitter and gave them a light tap-tap...tap with my finger to embed the glitter to the dots.  Then I vigorously tapped off the excess glitter and BAM! Bubbles...dimension...fun....a glittery delicious mess!!

Remember I mentioned blog hop?  Make sure you hop around to all the links below (if you get a link that doesn't work...just hop ahead to the next one and check back later to see what you missed.  The hop runs today through August 31st.  And whats a blog hop without prizes?  We will have lots of prizes hidden along the way as well as a grand prize valued at $100.  WOW!

How to enter to win? All you need to do is comment on EACH blog along the way.  Then for the grand prize after you have commented on all the stops, enter you name and email in the link tool at the last stop.  Winners will be randomly selected and announced on Monday, September 3rd on the Whimsy blog.  Good Luck and enjoy the inspiration!  Hop list at the end of this post.
