heres a very simple but stunning card. the trees are actually covered in very fine dazzling diamonds glitter- it just dosn't snow in the photo. the trees are on acetate over night of navy and baja breeze card with snowflakes stamped in shimmer paint as a background
This is a cheap canvas from poundland, i sponged rich razzleberry ink around the sides of the canvas and also sponged shimmer paint (but it dosn't show in the photo) it gives a lovely rich shimmery effect. i thin stamped using Baroqu Motifs and made a flower using the scallop circle punch, i also used the yelet border punch a length of taffeta ribbon - it's well worth a pound!
Heres a 12x12 page using real red card and greenhouse gala papers- i kept the page simple although i will add journalling to it once its out of my sample book and into my scrapbook
Now this wee box is away to go into mass production for christmas. i used cherry cobbler a. ind old olive card. i cut an aparture using the ornament punch and used acetate as a window. i stamped using white stazon and used dazzling diamonds on the image while the ink was still wet so it stuck without glue. it holds 4 chocolates- perfect for the christmas table instead of crackers, or as small gifts, i would also be perfect for jewellery.
the photos were taken in the marquee so the colour is terrible- sorry. i realised i had better get photos of my swaps before they were all gone.
top- is pretty in pink and melon mambo, with greenhouse garden flowers and pocket sils for the background
middle - baha breeze background with real red
bottom- crunb cake (kraft) background with early espresso, beware pirates stamp set- i embossed the images with clear embossng powder (twice) then put them in the freezer so it would crack like broken glass
I thought I'd share a couple of photos from the gala dinner/awards night. We were at Addington Palace, it was beautiful inside the building but as there were so many of us we used their huge marquee, the atmosphere was amazing, everyone was genuinely happy for each others achievements
the photo above is me up on the stage meeting Shelli who is CEO of SU. i was placed in the top 25 demonstrators of the year, Dawn and Elaine were also in Demo of the year, and they both received awards for their sales aswell (photos below) Dawn had a stunning teal dress on and Elaine wore her favorite - Ness, she looked fabulous and was so easy for me to spot on the stage so i could zoom in for photos.
i came home with over 150 swaps, so instead of blogging this week i've been sorting through them and doing some crafting- i came home so inspired i didn't want to waste my evenings on the computer.
i would like to thank my customers and hostesses for their support and custom since i started, i am so lucky to be able to do the job i do, i meet so many lovely people and i'm lucky enough to now count many of them as my friends.
