Make your Stampin' Up! Be Dazzling Specialty Paper Any Color You Want


  • Stampin' Up! Merry Snowflakes Stamp Set & Stitched Snowflakes Dies
  • Spritz your Be Dazzling glitter paper to get any color 
  • Order your Peaceful Christmas Paper Pumpkin October Kit

I was looking for a glitter paper to use on a card I was making, and stumbled on a great way to change your Be Dazzling 6" X 6" Specialty Paper into the color you need for your project.  Just spritz it with reinkers in the color you desire and rubbing alcohol.  I needed to change my Be Dazzling paper to match the brush Metallic Gold Cardstock I was using on my card.  I mixed about 6 drops of Pale Papaya Reinker with rubbing alcohol in a Stampin' Spritzer, sprayed it on my glitter paper and dried it quickly with my heat tool.  I die cut a couple of snowflakes using the Stitched Snowflakes Dies, and matched it with a deer image punched using the Deer Builder Punch.  The recolored Specialty Paper worked perfectly with the Brushed Gold Metallic Cardstock I used for the Deer.   The Be Dazzling 6" X 6" Specialty Paper is a free Sale-Bration selection.  A quick reminder:  Sale-a-Bration ends in two weeks, so if you want to pick a free selection to use with your holiday projects, you'll want to place an offer for $50 or $100 (less tax and shipping) or more to pick your free Sale-Bration selection(s).

Christmas Cards using snowflakes and deer image in gold metallic and glitter paper

The basecard of for these cards is Thick Basic white.  Then a layer of Basic White Cardstock dry embossed with the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder.  A 1/4" strip of Gold Brushed Metallic Cardstock forms a border at the bottom of the embossed layer.

Above, you can see the Be Dazzling 6" X 6" Specialty Paper before I colored it.  Behind it you can see the color it became after I Spritzed a sheet of Be Dazzling with a mixture of 6 drops of Pale Papaya Ink Refill and Rubbing Alcohol.  I was in a hurry so I died the sheet using my heat tool.  It worked perfectly!  Now I can't wait to try other colors Spritzed onto Be Dazzling sheets.  What a great way to have just the glitter paper color you need for a project.   I used the Stitched Snowflake dies and die cut two different size snowflakes from the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper.

Christmas Card using Stampifn' Up! Mery Snowflakes Bundle and Deer Builder Punch

Next, I used the Deer Builder Punch and punched the deer out of Gold Brushed Metallic Cardstock and added it to the card front.  I tied a bow out of Real Red 3/8" Mini Ruffled Ribbon and add it as an accent.  I used one of the sentiments from the Merry Snowflakes Stamp Set, and stamped it in Real Red Ink onto the lower right side of the card. 

The Merry snowflakes and Stitched Snowflakes Dies can be purchased as a bundle at a 10% saving over purchasing them separately.  Order the bundle along with Real Red Ruffled Ribbon, and make a selection from the Sale--A-Bration brochure before Sale-A-Bration ends, on 30 September.
