I was making a card for Todd a while back and as many of you already know, his favorite color is orange, but I had NO orange embellishments. Not a one! Not even a sequin! lol. So this got me thinking about picking up some orange Nuvo Drops, but then I thought, why can’t I figure out a way to make my own embellishments, jewels, and/or enamel dots? I bought a bunch of molds thinking I could make them from resin molds, but that got complicated really fast. It was important for me to find a way that translated easily to the card-making community, and more importantly you, my Inkie Friend. So after a lot of trial and error, failed attempts, and learning a few new things along the way I’m finally able to present you all my DIY Recipes for Embellishments.
