Circle Scissors Scrapbook Layout: Sneak Peek
Last Batch Of Christmas Cards

Sparkly Christmas Cards plus Guest Card Maker: Denise

Way back in November (seems like ages ago!) we did Sparkly Christmas Cards at classes.  I've been checking my photo folders and have a couple more to show you.

This one is based very closely on one I found in a Christmas Card Gallery on Claire Daly's blog.   We used heat and stick powder and some of Stampin' Up's gorgeous fine glitter for the lettering since it was a sparkle class. 


I also discovered how much I like Bravo Burgundy as a colour with some matching ink sponged around the edge. Will have to dust off the rest of the pack and use it more often!

Here's another view where you get a touch more of the sparkle.  The letters are popped up on dimensionals.


Tip:  Now the trick with heat and stick powder is to watch it carefully when you're heating it and stop as soon as it changes.  (Thanks Sue Bayliss, glitter queen, for the tip!) You'll see it will look 'wet' then you know its all tacky and you can add your glitter.  Another quick burst with the heat tool seems to 'set' the glitter.   

Stamp Sets:  Lovely Letters and Baroque Motifs

Colours: Bravo Burgundy, Riding Hood Red, Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla

Other: Circle punches and Rhinestone brads, Heat and Stick Powder, Versamark, Fine Glitter and Heat Tool.

One of the other cards we made at Sparkly Christmas Card Class was this one.

I liked the tweak Denise gave the design and she was kind enough to let me take a pic to share with you guys.

Special Guest Card Maker:  Denise


Here's a close up of the rhinestone brad in the centre - it really sets off the card.


Thanks Denise for letting me share your card with the ladies in blogland.

Well, can you tell I'm in housework avoidance mode!! 

Better get back to my 'to do before Christmas' list. 


Cheers, Sue
