BLING BLING BABY

Okay ladies where did ya'll purchase the stones for your cake toppers, shoes, and what ever else you needed blinged out? Did you use Swarovski crystals or go with something else?  If you went with something different how did it come out?  Pictures would be greatly appreciated.  Eddy just mailed my cake top and I want to be ready when it gets here.  Also did you paint your cake top before puttin on the stones if so what color? One last thing how many did it take to bling out your cake top or shoes.  My cake top is 5 inches.  TIA

    Here's my topper:


    I used:


    (and I used a silver sharpie to "paint" my letter) I'll email you the link to the YouTube instructional vid I did. 

    It took me about 3 days (15 or so hours) but I blinged mine on both sides and on the edges.

    I used 12ss and 16ss swarovski crystals from this website [clicky]. You'll need about 4 gross to cover your topper. Mine was the same size.I spray painted the letter silver first. 

    Spray painted


    with crystals
     

    other cake bling to go around tiers

    I ordered my bling from the same vendor as Soon2BSands(thanks for the referral) They are here in Orlando so I got it really quick. I painted my letter blue on both sides using acrylic paint from Michaels and will start blinging it out this weekend.

    I didn't use Swarovski crystals, I got some of those like rhinestones from Michaels and blinged it out. I did both sides and it took me about 2 days off and on. I spray painted mine silver first and then used some of that E6000 glue.

    I spray painted my topper silver before I blinged it out.



    I also spray painted the letters for my cardbox before I blinged them out too.
    Topper took 2 days to do



    To bling out both took about 1400 of both colors, I still have some left but I will be blinging out something else for sure. 
    Letters took 4 days to do.

    I ordered my crystals (flatback rhinestones) on ebay (buy it now) came to $12 and there was free shipping.  The spray paint I bought from Hobby Lobby for $2 with a coupon.

    I also put the letters I DO on the bottom of my red shoes in turquoise.  The picture of those is in the link below first row.
    The shoes took a half hour to do.
