Hugs & Kisses

Hello bloggers and Happy New Year's Eve!  I started with a piece of Pixie Sparkled card that I made using Teal Marine and Zesty Lime Pixie Sparkles.   I used the inner heart from the Layered Heart Background die set and cut it into the card randomly all over (without over lapping it).  I used a piece of white card with a sticky adhesive sheet added to it and attached it to the back of the heart cut outs background.  I filled in the exposed adhesive with Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz.  I cut a Pierced Flag in white and added the Hugs & Kisses sentiment cut in black to it.  I attached it with mounting foam to the background about a quarter of the way from the bottom of the card.  Using the Heart Leaf Flowers, I made three white flowers and attached them at the back edge of the flag.  I used the leaves from the set as well as a Bauble Branch as accents around the flowers.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2"  x 8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue and all that visit today.
I'd love to see this in real life I bet its zesty gorgeousness is absolutely stunning especially when the light catches it, must treat myself to some pixie sparkles in the new year - talking of which Sue, we'll be packing up the car for our usual getaway at this time of year where there are no fireworks to send our four-paws into an anxious state of fear and shaking, and because people think NYE celebrations carry over into the night of the 1st 2nd and possibly the 3rd January we'll be back Monday afternoon so I'm not sure what the reception was like up near Pendal Hill but I'll be here one way or another.
Enjoy the celebrations but bare in mind not everyone or every fur-baby can tolerate the awful noise these fireworks bring, go low noise or even better indoor fireworks, but have a safe evening everyone xxx said...

Morning Sue.
A lovely card thank you.
Take care and have fun Kitty.

Good morning Sue and all.
A gorgeous card to end the year. I'm sure the historians will be sharpening their pencils and getting their materials together.

I'm so glad to be a member of this group as I have learned so much from you Sue and also from other members.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, such a beautiful colour on this sample, the pixie powders really are amazing, it is like magic when they activate.

Thank you so much Sue for your commitment to this blog, it is a life saver for so many of your followers, I so appreciate how much effort it takes to make all the samples just for the blog let alone all the other ones you make for shows etc. Again, thank you so much.

Wishing you all a very Happy and Safe New Year, xxx

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Hi Sue. How lovely to see a card with hearts on in a colour other than red! Foe some reason, I always go for red when using hearts.


Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Great post, love the colours though a bit unusual for hearts but it works....Also love the use of the random heart background. Hope everyone has a great New Years Eve and lets hope that 2022 is a bit better for all....

Hi Sue, a lovely card and I love the colours and added sparkle of the cleverly made background. All of your cards and dies this year have been so varied there has been something for everyone and we do appreciate all the hard work that goes into this blog.
Steph - I agree with you on the fireworks, non of my cats like them and one is positively terrified and hides away in a cupboard.
Wishing everyone across the globe a very Happy, healthy and safe New Year.
