Glittered Flowers



I used a brass stencil for this card. It was probably from Lasting Impressions. I also used Martha Stewart glitter. I bought a package years ago at Michael's with a 50% off coupon. I think the package has 24 tubs of glitter in so many beautiful colors. I added "sticky" to the white cardstock with my Diecut'N Bond. Then I added the stencil to it. I very carefully added the different colors through the stencil, being careful to contain each color to where I wanted it. When all the open areas were filled with glitter, I removed the stencil and added pearl glitter to the rest of the piece. I simply matted it and added the sentiment, which is from Papertrey Ink.

Edited to add: The Diecut 'N Bond is plenty sticky to hold the glitter, but it's not hard to get the stencil off, especially the brass stencil. I had a little trouble with my snowflake stencil, but was still able to get it off. The snowflake stencil was very detailed and had parts that were very delicate.

Glittery Lattice


I had so much fun playing with glitter:) I die-cut this lattice piece out of cardstock that had the Couture Creations Diecut'N Bond on it. Then I sprinkled it with microfine glitter. I cut the leaves out of patterned paper and the flowers out of glitter cardstock. I added Liquid Peals to the flower centers. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. I sponged some ink around the edge and mounted it on foam squares. I had also brushed ink on the bottom panel.

Snowflakes

POSSIBLY this could be my last Christmas card for the year. I don't plan on making any more, but then - I didn't plan on making the last four of them! :)

This line of snowflakes was cut from my Die Cut and Bond-covered cardstock, so I wanted to use up my "test" piece. It works great for die cuts, for sure. I used the die-cut piece to draw a line on my turquoise cardstock, then masked off the bottom part and sponged ink on the top part. Then I added the snowflake border. I used a Papertrey Ink stamp for the sentiment. I used my MISTI and was able to bend the stamp to match the curve of the die-cut.

Christmas Ornaments

More Christmas. I die-cut the ornaments for these cards out of gold foil cardstock. I used purple glitter paper for the matting of this one, and also for the bow. The die set also includes the line of dots for the hanger. I put a piece of silver shimmery paper under the small dots. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and is embossed with gold. I matted with gold foil cardstock.
Same as the first, but a different die and I used red. I matted this panel with red to match the ornament.

December Calendar Page

I used a corner of a Cuttlebug embossing folder for this month's page. Then I embossed the sentiment, from Papertrey Ink, with Versamark and embossed it with detail silver embossing powder. I matted it with shimmery silver paper. Wow, that year of calendar pages sure went quickly!! Happy December, everyone.
