Hi there Lovelies,
Yep! the weather forecasters were definitely right again lol!! dull, dreary, wet, windy and cold ! Never mind a good excuse for a spot of crafting. I had 'happy post' today from Imaginations -products to make samples from, for their show on Create & Craft T.V. next month, always exciting opening the box to see what new products there are ! and I certainly wasn' disappointed lol! Enough chit chat, let's get cracking with tonight's card. This was made for Imagination Craft's latest show earlier this month.
Fold the white card in half down the crease line to make a 7"x7" square card. Matt a slightly smaller piece of navy card onto the base card. Next natt a smaller piece of light blue card onto the navy,
Take a smaller square of white card and lay the snowflake crescent stencil onto it. Mix together some diamond Sparkle Medium with a touch ( a tiny amount only is needed as the pigment is very strong - a little goes a long way lol!!!) of the dark orchid Starlight Metallic paint. Spread this over the stencil but do not cover all of the design. Next mix more diamond Sparkle Medium with the blue Starlight paint and spread this over parts of the design. Lastly, spread some of the diamond Sparkle Medium over the design, making sure everything is covered. Remove the stencil and leave the image to dry.
When dry, punch all four corners using the Martha Stewart corner punch.
Wrap a ribbon down the right-hand edge and secure on the reverse. Matt this onto the blue card and
add a ribbon bow to the top,
Glue an eight gem strip to the ribbon, just below the bow.
Take some white card and using each colour as you mixed previously. lay the large snowflake from the stencil, onto the card and spead the three colours through the stencil, one blue, one dark orchid and one diamond with just a slight touch of blue in it. When dry, cut out each snowflake and lay one one on top of the other, off setting them slightly, using silicone glue.
Glue this to the original image on the base card and add a silver washer to the centre of the snowflake, then add a pink gem to the centre of the silver washer. Well that's all from me for now, hope you have enjoyed your visit. I'll be back soon, hope you will too!! Have a fun weekend.
Love and rainbows,
Hugs Jennifer xx.
