lots of glittery things...

I think I am just a little early with my background idea of snowman! But it is sooo cold outside that it has totally got me thinking winter! I am not a winter person at all...I like the warm sunny days of summer.....

On the weekend I attended a crop day down at Pointers which is a wonderful scrapbooking store located in Markham, Ontario. The ladies there are all so wonderful...so full of inspiration. It really gets you into the creative mood. Nicky is one of the ladies there that teaches you how to make the most beautiful cards....that women has so many amazing ideas to share. I must thank her for sharing this glittery idea! She was teaching a class when I saw she had a card there I had to try...she graciously gave me all her tips and I was off to make these Christmas cards!


The background was just run thru the swiss dots embossing folder. The stamp is then stamped on wonderful copic paper using a beautiful shade of blue,then you place this adhesive strip across the image which is sticky on both sides. You remove the top part of the adhesive and apply glitter...and there you have a winter wonderland!

So who can stop at that...I had to make some Christmas tags too.....

Thank-you so much for popping in for a visit! Now I am off to check out everyone's creations that I have not been able to do the last couple of days!!!!

  5. Christine, these are so beautiful! I love all the sparkle - what a super simple yet amazingly effective card! And the tags are so WOW! It reminds me of the beautiful blue/white wedgewood china! Did you get lots of snow? We did - it's very confusing to see all the Halloween pumpkins covered in snow, LOL!!! Have a great Halloween!
    Hugs, Danielle

  9. Your card and tags are gorgeous Christine, really sparkly and elegant. I don't like the cold either, I'm definitely a warm weather gal. It's been mild but wet here over the past few days which is bad news for my hair!!
