♥ gosh you're awesome ♥

you really are.  and that's why i know you'll completely {heart} these new enamel dots from MME The Sweetest Thing line.  these are so much fun to play with and i can not wait to see what you will do with them.
i created four cards using the dots as my "focal embellishment" and can't wait to play some more with these.  i love that you can add a splash of color without getting too "bulky" which is very important with cards (especially those you want to mail)

gosh you're awesome card

 i love this polaroid frame paper......a LOT

it makes it so easy to cut out a polaroid frame and stitch and layer, again, without a lot of "bulk" being added to your page or cards

 wonderful you card
(together enamel dots)


 as you can see in this "side view" you can add the splash of color with not more dimension than  some "punched hearts"  these would be very mailable without a lot of hassle at the post.

 on the next two cards, i wanted to add more than a "splash of color" to my sentiment and design, i wanted to "play" with the embellishment use of the dots.

on my first card, i wanted to play with one of the new stamps in this set


the "hello" sentiment is an absolute FAVE of mine and you have to get this set to play with it as well as the chevrons, borders, numbers, florals....ok, all of it


i pulled out some Jenni Bowlin & Papertrey Ink stamp pads and matched my dots up to the colors to create this fun, playful sentiment for the focal of my card

 and on this card, i punched some flowers and used the dots as the centers (not unique, but never our of style)  i love the added color splash and it's so fun and easy to do for a fun thank you card

 as you can see, the enamel dots give a splash of color while still being relatively easy to send in the mail

i hope this gives you a couple of ideas for the dots.  i really can't wait to see what all you will come up with using these fun, new embellishments from MME.

don't forget to stop by the blog all week long for more inspiration using the enamel dots.  Tina had an amazing post using the enamel dots as border embellishments along with her designer tapes yesterday and the inspiration will continue all throughout the week♥
