Here's today's card -
CS Glue onto a piece of Heat Emboss Acetate. I misted it with water and spread the glue around using my fingers. I then sprinkled Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powders over - I used Midnight Blue, Aqua Lagoon, Pewter and White Pearl. I made sure that all the glue was covered. I misted with a little more water and then sprinkled over some Sparkle Star CS Diamond Frost. I scrunched up a piece of White Tissue Paper. I opened it out and added it to my background, patting it down using a piece of Kitchen Roll. I put it aside to dry - approx an hour.
I made a frame out of Coconut White Card using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Rectangles and Double Pierced Rectangles Set B.
Once my background was dry, I added my frame using 2mm Foam Tape, trimming away the excess. I matted onto a couple of pieces of Coconut White Card.
I cut the Paper Cuts Let it Snow Frame and the snowflakes in the set out of Coconut White Card and added it to my background using CS Glue in a Woodware Fine Tip Glue Applicator.
CE Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of Coconut White Card and cut the snowflakes. I peeled away the backing and added CS Sparkle Star Diamond Frost. I added these snowflakes to my frame/background. I added some White Pearls to the centre of some of the snowflakes.
Paper Cuts Jingle Bells Die Set out of my card with the self adhesive sheet on it 4 times and added CS Sparkle Star Diamond Frost to it. I added them to the corners of my frame adding a White Pearl to the centre of each one.

Just before I go, I have some workshop updates -
This Wednesday, I am running a Chalk Cloud Masterclass at CE HQ in Kettering. We will also be looking at Distress Oxides (hopefully the new colours too) so you can compare. This is a workshop that will be packed with techniques. It runs 10am till 4pm. There are just 3 spaces left - you can book here.
I am also running a Christmas Stamping Workshop on Wednesday 27th September (again up at CE HQ). The projects aren't 100% set in stone (it depends if I make anything that I think is cooler over the next couple of weeks). We will be aiming to complete 4-6 projects on the day.Bookings are now being taken for this one here.
My own Christmas themed workshop in Yardley Gobion is on Saturday 30th September. It will be a mix of die cutting and stamping on this one. Again, I haven't 100% decided what the projects are but there will be up to 6 of them. We are definately doing the one below but there will be a choice of background techniques to use and there will be a whole host of dies to choose from to make the background. You can book for this one here.
The workshop in Yardley Gobion on 28th October with myself and Leonie Pujol is nearly full with just 7 spaces up for grabs. We haven't set the projects for this one yet but it is going to be inky with lots of stamping. Don't miss out on this opportunity to spend a day with probably the bubbliest Craft Personality in the World! You can book here.
Thanks for stopping by.
