All that Glitters

All that Glitters




Welcome to the October Jem's "All that Glitters" Blog Hop!






I trust that you have been dazzled and inkspired by some wonderful creations today on the Jem's Monthly Blog Hop and what an amazing day to have a blog hop -World Card Making Day (be sure to check out the amazing card making offers from Stampin Up -loads of card making items on sale 1st-5th October -don't miss out).

Here are my all that glitters creations

Love & Affection meets Wink of Stella.

I was commissioned to create a glitzy wedding card for a friend. I chose a crumb cake cardstock base, stamped Mixed Boarders in Pacific point ink, and coloured all the flowers in with Tempting Turquoise all stamped onto Very Vanilla card stock. The larger flowers, that I cut out, come from the stamp set Love & Affection. I raised them up on Stampin Up dimensionals and added a diamante in the middle of the flowers, to give the card that extra sparkle. I used the Large Letters Framelits for the lettering and finished it off with Wink of Stella (Gold).

Here is the finished card...


My second make is a glass candle bauble that I have made into what I am calling a 'Fairy Orb' .


                                  





The products used are Botanical Blooms stamp set for the leaves. I used the small fairy from the set Fairy Celebration and very carefully cut her out. I then coloured her in using my Stampin write Markers (various colours -wisteria wonder, rich razzleberry, Bermuda bay and blushing bride). I stamped the fairy image again, but this time, punched out the fairy wings using the bitty butterfuly punch to give her 3D wings. The final thing was the 'roses' created using (sorry) a retired product spiral flower die. Everything was assembled using a hot glue gun and the fairy was mounted onto a thin strip of window sheet to give the illusion of her 'flying' above the flowers. To make it an ALL THAT GLITTERS creation -out came the Wink of Stella (gold) and every surface got a little rub down with the stella brush....I think this will look really sweet on the Chirstmas tree this year :-)
                               



A little video (first one ever) of my Fairy Orb and the 'flying fairy'...look at the way she sparkles...
