tinsel & Co Reindeer and Sleigh

teresa coliins tinsel & company, kaisercraft reindeer and sleigh

Hi Everyone

With Christmas fast approaching I thought I had better start crafting and not leave everything to the last minute.

Each year I like to make a kaisercraft Reindeer and Sleigh to give away as a gift and this year I decicded to use the beautiful gold and silver Tinsel & Company collection from Teresa Collins. I have covered the sleigh with several different papers from the collection and embellished with silver rhinestones.

The reindeer has been painted with silver paint, then with extreme silver glitter and then also embellished with silver rhinestones. The nose and eyes are kaisercraft sparklets. The reindeer's antlers have been covered in the new Bo Bunny gold Glitter paste.

I have filled my sleigh with christmas baubles for now but for Christmas I plan on filling it full of yummy chocolates.

Painting with Glimmer Spray

Prima Paintable Card Painted with Glimmer Spray

Hi Everyone,

First of all, thanks to all the lovely ladies who came along to our weekend workshop.  We saw lots and lots of pages completed (up to 11 each plus a frame) and fun had.  We also got to play with some new products - Bo Bunny Glitter paste and shimmer sprays.  We have the Prima Colour Bloom Sprays instore and also have the new Bo Bunny Glimmer Sprays.

Now most people have probably seen or heard of spray mists, glimmer sprays or spray inks and seem them used to mist through stencils, create a misted background or colour chipboard/wooden shapes but probably a lesser known use to to use them as a paint.

Purple Heart Birthday Card

handmade card using spellbinders dies and graphic 45 sweet sentiments paper collection

Hi Everyone

Today I would like to share a card I made for a special friend. Her favourite colour is purple and her favourite paper collections are Graphic 45 so I have used paper from the Secret Garden collection as my background. The border has been punhed using Martha Stewarts Pansy round the page punch set.  I have die cut the heart using Spellbinders Lace Hearts die and the foliage using Spellbinders Sprigs die from bazzill cardstock.

Other embellishments used are guipure lace, sentiment stamp, Kaisercraft blooms and mini blooms.
