Here's today's card -
Milk Card using the Creative Expressions Sparkle Flakes Embossing Folder. I matted onto Rich Red Card and then another piece of Milk Card. I added CS Glue around the edges of my background and then sprinkled CS Frosty Dawn Diamond Frost over. I added a spot of Quickie Glue to the centre of some of the stars in the background and popped CS Golden Stars Glitter Jewels on top.
Sue Wilson's Poinsettia Star Die Set into 2 pieces of Milk Card. I sandwiched a piece of Acetate between them using Quickie Glue - it's important to make sure that EVERY line on the die cuts in secured to the Acetate.
Working on the back, I popped some CS Clear Varnish Lacquer onto my Craft Sheet. I added one drop of CS Rich Crimson Intense Pigment Stain to it and mixed well using a Paint Brush. I then added CS Frosty Dawn Diamond Frost and mixed again. I used this to colour the Poinsettia's on my Acetate. It's better to add a really good amount, to fill the area enclosed by the die cut. I cleaned my brush and then added more Lacquer to my Craft Sheet. This time I added a drop of Emerald Intense Pigment Stain and mixed well. I used this to colour the leaves. Finally, I added some Lacquer to my Craft Sheet and mixed in some CS Rich Gold Pixie Powder. I used this to colour in all the remaining areas. I put this aside to dry - approx 2 hours. The glitter used on flowers falls to the bottom, which is actually what we want as that means it's all at the front.
Sue's Radiating Star Die Set out of Rich Red Card. I cut the largest 2 dies from the same set out of Milk Card and glued the 2 die cuts together. I left them a while for the glue to set and then added die 3 from the same set and cut. This created my frame. I added some thin strips of 2mm Foam Tape. Once my Poinsettia Star piece was dry, I added my frame and trimmed away the excess. I added some 3mm Pearls to the centres of the flowers.
Wide Brush and put aside to dry (approx 20 mins). Once dry, I cut the flowers from Sue's Poinsettia Cluster twice. I cut the outer die from the same set out of Milk Card twice. I added some 3mm Pearls to the centre of the flowers.
There have been a couple of new releases. Firstly, new masks from That Special Touch - you can find them here. I think this one will be the most popular -
