Glitter does it.

Time for the girls in the Christmas Card Club to show our next makes. We had no set theme this fortnight so it is anything goes.  I have two of the six cards that I made at the recent workshop I attended finished  now so can show them. We were using glitter card (the smooth no shed kind I hasten to add) and some of Julie Hickey's new Christmas stamp range. A few might have accidentally fallen into my basket on the way out. Can't think how!!! Julie had already cut the glitter card up into  strips of varying widths and also in lots of colourways for us so we were spoilt for choice.
For my first card I used pink, turquoise and dark silver to make the tag.( I cut my tag shape when I got home using my SU tag punch). Poinsettia was stamped in black twice and then fussy cut to make the different layers. Again I finished at home using silver glitter glue. Pearls were from my stash. The sentiment is one of Julie's new dies. I cut the frame  away from the wording to get the separate words.

Entering into the following challenges:
Dream Valley #213 All that Glitters.
Ellibelle’s Corner # November’s challenge Christmas holidays. 
Addicted To Stamps #366 Anything goes.
CCC Digi Creations #109 Christmas.
Tales From The Craft Room #10 Tags and trimmings.
Unicorn Challenge #49 Christmas Winter.


For my second card  I used light and dark silver and gold bronze to make the strip across the card. We were pretty much allowed to do our own thing for the pattern of laying down our strips so I went for making a herringbone design. The poinsettia was again stamped out twice and fussycut. I finished at home adding the silver glitter glue and the gems from my stash.  Sentiment by Julie Hickey.

Entering into the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments #239 Anything goes + add a sentiment.
Fab 'n'Funky #456 Paper piecing.
Southern Girls # Christmas.
Country View Challenges # Hand stamped.
Daisy Chain Challenges #36 Christmas/winter.


I'm off to see what the rest of the girls have come up with.

Liz said...

Fabulous, glittery cards, Mrs A, so pretty. The non-shed glitter card is so much easier to use than the sort that leaves glitter everywhere for days! There is to be a wide range of colours easily available too. xx

I never thought of using glitter strips like this and both cards are beautiful. The poinsettia is gorgeous and looks so pretty with the tag. I love how you glittered around the sentiment on the second card.

Sue said...

Mrs A these are gorgeous! What a brilliant way to use glitter card - I love a bit of glitter at Christmas, but sometimes it can be too much. This is the perfect way to bring a bit of bling. Have a very happy week, Sue xx
