Tips & Techniques Tuesday: Stickled Embellishments


Hello, fellow Stickles-lovers! :) Welcome to our tip/technique/tutorial Tuesday!

Today its Hazel (Didos) who is here to show you some hints and tips to have co-ordinating Stickled embellishments to match your cards.

I have gone for Xmas Red Stickles which is the colour for our Linky Party this week. You can join in 

Its quite simple to pop the glitter glue onto some of the items but here are some handy hints and tips I would like to share with you all.  


 Its easy to hold a brad and add the stickles to it as it has the back to hold but if you are doing a flower or button then its much easier if you have a pair of tweezers to hold your item.

With a flower if you add a layer of sSickles and then leave it to dry (somewhere safe where it wont be touched!) Then add another one so its totally covered and there is none missed out. 


For my Flower I wanted a different colour of Stickles for the stigma so have used Golden Rod Stickles on the brad for it. 


Its the same with the button If you use tweezers its much easier not to get glittery fingers!


 Here is my finished flower, All ready to go on a card.


This card has Stickled brads on it to match the other Stickles on it. It makes a lovely, professional finishing touch.


Remember to join this weeks Linky Party With the Colour Theme of Xmas Red!

I hope this has inspired you to add some more Stickles to your creations.

Love Hazel (Didos)
