Another card from this weeks Spellbinders class at Craft Plus UK this time using the Create a Flake 6 combined with A2 Scalloped edges.  I cut and embossed one of the edge dies top and bottom and mounted these panels onto some patterned paper and mirror card. Then I cut some snowflakes from a selection of papers from the pad and added a mounted together selection in the middle and
more on the white panels. Finished off with a sentiment and some gems.

Snowflake striplet stamp

Two versions of the same card today. First version is black and white and uses the Snowflake striplet stamp from Creative Expressions. The stamp was inked with black archival and stamped 3 times. I then die cut a circle from some black card and cut the Snowflake dies from Sue Wilson on white card that had a layer of Stick it adhesive attached on top. I removed the top layer of adhesive and sprinkled glitter all easy love this product.  Finished off with a sentiment and some essential bling stones.
The second version is similar except it uses one of the cloud inks from Creative Expressions to stamp again 3 times and then this time I coloured the circle with the same ink and also the smallest snowflake die. I even used the ink to colour the edges of my backing card so it matched. I did use a zig pen to add glue around the edges and sprinkled with glitter. Added a sentient and some bling stones.
Products used:
Stamps: Creative Expressions Snowflake Striplet stamp. Crafters Companion and Indigoblu sentiments
Dies: Spellbinders circles, Sue Wilson snowflakes
Extras: Cosmic Shimmer Cloud ink clear day, Black Archival, Gems, Glitter, stick it adhesive sheets

Holly Wreath

Another card from Saturdays class using the Sue Wilson Holly dies. I didn't want this card to be big and if I had kept the dies full size it would have had to have been, so after I die cut them out of gold card I cut them into small sections and made a smaller wreath. The poinsettia stamp was stamped and embossed with gold powder. A bow and some red pearls to finish.

Products used:
Die: Sue Wilson Holly Spray
Stamps: Creative Expressions Elegant Poinsettia, PI Kirsty Wiseman (sentiment)
Extras: Red and Gold pearls, ribbon, Gold embossing powder
