Loving The Snowflake!

Who says that snowflakes don't go with red?!  I just love this combo, very striking, I think.  This new Spellbinder snowflake die is one of my absolute favourites.  I glittered the top snowflake but it just doesn't show up in the pic (you can see a spot of it that I forgot to dust off the card by the bow, though!) Those are my faux pearls in the corner that I made using the dries white Cosmic Shimmer glue and then dusting them with pearlescent mica.  After the glue has dried thoroughly, I give them a tiny spritz of water to set the mica after dusting them and they are ready to go.  Saves so much money if you don't have to purchase the real craft pearls too (More left over for other fun embellishments).  I have one last  Spellbinders POTW show to do in the morning (Monday the 20th) at 8am.  These nestibilities have been very popular and rightly so as they are amazingly versatile.  Please tune in if you get the chance.  All for now, Sue x

Your right Sue, it gives it a luxurious look. I always associate Xmas with red, gold and white (my tree d├ęcor lol). I adore your snowflake card and those faux pearls are awesome (I need some white glue, I only have clear) I can't wait to make some :)

I forgot in my last comment to say how much I like your bows with the covered buttons and the bow collars. I would love to know how you do your buttons.

Another fab card, although I did like the blue one you did on the show with the edging, where you used the 'waste' piece if you will, it was very refreshing xxxx

The rich red contrasted with the crisp white is stunning. I have thoroughly enjoyed your shows on C&C and love your style.

mandy said...

the spellbinders must be the hardest shows esp 4 pow because you have to show such a variety of styles but you seem to have cracked it. of all the shows i've seen so far every1 is different well done. you can take a plain piece of card & make a magical maserpiece you're so clever sue.

That really is a striking combination. It's a beautiful card! That is so cool, being able to make your own pearls.
