Glitter and Bling

Hi All,

Good Monday morning.  Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend and are looking forward to this week.   This is an early post for me today, I have scheduled this post to appear at 8am today and hopefully I will just be getting up when it appears lol.   I would like to say welcome to  Eileen, Avril and Nicky, thank you so much for following me.   Hope you enjoy your visits to my blog.

Earlier this week I had some very exciting news from Linda Simpson  telling  me that I have made it onto the Imagination Craft's  Challenge Blog design team, so exciting !!   I'm really looking forward to being part of this amazing team!    So a big thank you to Linda for giving me the opportunity and for  having me on board .   I just want to say thank you to the team for making me so welcome, they're a great bunch !!     My first post for the Challenge Blog will go live on the 1st. February 2014 at 8am in the morning, hence my scheduling of this post for 8am today, this is a practice run before the big day lol.   Hopefully it has worked lol !!

Now, onto today's card.  This was made for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Craft's in April 2013 and uses their Sparkle Medium, card, Silkies and Butterfly dots stencil.  Without more ado, let's get crafting lol.

Make a base card from the black card.   Matt a smaller piece of peach onto the black.   Take the blue card and using the Grand Calibur and the stencil, emboss the blue card and matt it onto the peach card.

Using black card  the labels die and the stencil, run through the die-cutting machine to cut out and emboss the black card.

Cut out another slightly larger label using gold card.    Matt the black onto the gold then matt onto the blue card.

Cut out the floral corner die from blue card, twice.   Glue these to the black card, one on each side.   Cut a strip approximately 2" wide from white card.   Mix some Sparkle Gel with the Blush Satin' Silkies and spread it over the card.   'Rough it up' using the spatula.   Sprinkle with gold glitter and add some beads and sequins, then leave to dry.

Cut two narrow strips of blue card and glue down the sides of the white card (now decorated).   Glue this to the centre of the base card.   Voila !!! we are finished.   Hope you like it and thank you so much for stopping by my blog and many thanks for your lovely comments, I read every one.

Take care of yourselves and have a good week.   I'll be back with another  card later in the week , so cheerio for now.

                                                              Love and Rainbows,

                                                                Hugs  Jennifer xx
