Look what I made....Crystal Ballz Santa!


Hey Crafty friends, I am back today to share this great new product that my bestest friend Dana got me hooked on. Maybe you have already seen Crystal Ballz but Dana showed it to me for the first time when I went to my friends house for the crop with all my crafty friends!
So I stamped off several of this great Santa image that she had and she gave me some of the double sided tape and a bag of Crystal Ballz that you can get from Class Act stamps and this is what I came up with. I can't tell you how super fast and easy this was to make and it looks very impressive IRL and you can't stop touching it either it is so smooth and lovely! This stuff is sooooooo cool...I just love it!!!!

So I coloured the image of Santa with my Copics trimmed it, inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress inks and applied the double sided adhesive tape that is crystal clear and is made to work with the Crystal Ballz. Then I sprinkled the Crystal Ballz over the whole image catching the excess in a coffee filter to use again. The Ballz are so tiny they just level themselves out, covering the whole image. It is that easy!

Here is a close up but this pic doesn't really do it justice...it's just so sparkly and pretty IRL! Well, I am off to make a phone call and get me some more Crystal Ballz, smile!
Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek!
Hope you have a stampin' great day!
Hugs,
