This Week's Technique: Using Dimensionals

This week's technique is easy and one that everyone can create a card using. Pull out your Stampin' Dimensionals (pop-dots) and see what you can create with them. Here are a few uses to help get you started:

  • Use them to add height to a card (see the Time Well Spent card for one example)
  • Use them to draw attention to a section of a card (for example in the spotlighting technique)
  • Dip the top side of a dimensional in glitter and adhere to a flower for a little extra sparkle in the middle
  • Don't just use the big dot, the smaller remains on the sides of the dot page are perfect for adhering to skinny spots such as stems, and butterfly middles
  • Use these to create pocket pages or when making shaker cards
  • Perfect for creating slider cards, using the dimensionals to create some distance in the pennies that you use for sliding
What other creative ways have you used your dimensionals? Post your comments here (by Saturday 1/26) and you'll be entered for a chance to win a pack of Pop Dots all your own! Spread the word, I'll pick one luck winner Sunday morning.

I use the dimensionals on the end of my pencil for a quick picker upper. It it great when you have to emboss something small and not get burned. Also to use when adding glitter to small items.

Here[s my twist on using a dimensional dot. Adhere a large dimensional dot to your finger. Take the paper covering off the other end and rub across chalk. Now you are ready to use your finger as a dabber.
