Without further adieu, allow me introduce you to our fantastic line up of June Sparkle Blends:

The high shine base of this blend includes gloss, iridescent and opalescent sequins and cupped confetti ranging from 3mm-10mm. We added tons of texture with seed &amp; tube beads, tiny flower sequins and heart confetti to give this blend lots of interest without the distraction of a more brightly colored blend.

This blend has tons of interest with textural additions like two styles of flower sequins, tiny micro beads and a variety of sequins and cupped confetti in varying sizes, shades and finishes, resulting in a beautiful true red blend.

You might think an all-black blend would fall a little flat, but in this case, you’d be dead wrong! We packed this dynamic blend with textured elements like tube & seed beads, crystals and both round and square sequins with ridges. To bring even more depth to the blend, we’ve added matte satin, iridescent, gloss, glitter, holographic and printed sequins in a variety of sizes.

We took a softer approach with this blend, opting for an iridescent clear base, layered with transparent, iridescent, opalescent and holographic pinks, yellows, purples, blues and greens in pastel shades. A generous sprinkle of crystals, shard sequins, and silver holographic stars and starbursts give this blend almost a pixie glow.

This blend is perfect for your summer projects! A gorgeous combination of greens, blues, aqua & teal - this blend is perfect for ocean and beach themes. We’ve combined a wide variety of sequins in different finishes and sizes ranging from 2mm to 8mm, plus beautiful marbled glass beads and tri-tone spheres, as well as open ring sequins that look like bubbles. The cute, multi-colored, iridescent mermaid confetti and two sizes and styles of shell sequins are perfect for themed projects, but easy enough to pick out of the mix if you want to save them for a different project.

The primarily blue, pink and purple base of this fun, themed blend pairs perfectly with the coordinating unicorn confetti and multi colored unicorn head confetti. We’ve added some silver holographic star bursts and mini stars for a touch of magic, and transparent shard sequins to mimic the shape of a unicorn’s horn. This blend has everything from crystals and blue diamond shaped confetti to tri-color spheres and sequins in all shapes, sizes and finishes.
