March Challenge: Use Enamel Dots

Hi, all!  It's time for another new monthly challenge here at House of Cards!  We loved all the beautiful creations from last month and we cannot wait to see what you do with this month's challenge which is....


To use this supply~

We have TONS of information for you this month, including a video tutorial in this post as well as two more tutorials shared later on in the month!  All of these tutorials will share ways that you can MAKE your own enamel dots for cheaper than buying them, should you be as cheap thrifty as some of us are OR in case you can't find enamel dots in your neck of the woods!  I know these ideas have changed my spending patterns!  We hope they'll inspired you, as well!  

We also have a fabulous guest designer joining us this month!
It's Lisa from LJ Creations!

Take a look at her card~


And here's some inspiration from challenge owner Mynn~


Next up, we have DT member Lilian here for a video tutorial!
She's sharing how to make enamel dots using colored hot glue sticks!



Find these glue sticks at:
AMAZON | GLU*STIX | HOBBY LOBBY | JOANN | ORIENTAL TRADING | WAL-MART

If you can't find these glue sticks in your country, DT member Rocky suggested using plain glue sticks and then dusting them with mica powder.  You can also use the clear glue sticks and paint the bottom of them as well!

Here's one of the card Lilian made with these dots~


WE WILL BE SHARING MORE IDEAS ON HOW TO SAVE MONEY AND MAKE YOUR OWN ENAMEL DOTS USING OTHER PRODUCTS LATER ON DURING THE MONTH, SO STAY TUNED, CRAFTY FRIENDS!

And check out the other DT members for more inspiration~


The DT cards will be showcased here throughout the month every Monday!

Thanks for popping over today, friends!  Come back on Monday for MORE inspiration from this very talented Design Team!  We hope you join in the fun, too--please check out our House Rules HERE before linking up!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!  Can't wait to see your creations!
