DRYER SHEET TECHNIQUE

I recently had a play date with some demonstrator friends, and we learned how to do the Dryer Sheet Technique. Big thanks to demonstrator, Keri Blake for her great instructions!

This card was done with snowman from the Merry and Bright stamp set and the Jumbo Snow Wheel, both from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog.

This is a great idea for used dryer sheets. It's perfect for those stampers who hate to throw anything away! First thing you have to do is iron your dryer sheet. We wheeled our image (the Jumbo Snow Wheel) in Rose Red ink on Whisper White cardstock. Then we put our rolled image into a box (you can do this step outside too) and sprayed it generously with spray adhesive. While the spray adhesive is still wet, pat your used dryer sheet into the adhesive. Sprinkle Dazzling Diamond Glitter over the entire image. Trim off any excess dryer sheet, and you are ready to mount your image! For this card we put our focal point on silver cardstock and added some silver cord and the snowman from Merry and Bright (he's got a little brad in the top of his hat). We mounted the whole thing on Rose Red cardstock for a very sparkly winter card.

Thanks Michelle and Lisa for playing!

This dryer sheet technique is great. It looks really elegant with Lovely as a Tree stamped in black, the dryer sheet & glitter over it, mounted on a gold background on a black card... Thanks for sharing!

make take is slightly different - and might a tad easier if you have the zyron. I stamped my image into CS, and then ran it upside down through the xyron to make the image sticky. I then applied the dryer sheet and glitter. I found this was quicker, and you don't have to go outside. :) Hope this helps any of you out there.
