Spellbinders and Sheena today

Morning all, as promised a couple more cards from the Spellbinders POW

 This was the first one I made , had the idea after just cutting them all out in just white card. I saw the petal shape when cutting out the baubles, so making a poinsettia was a must.

When I receive the dies to work with  there is very rarely any packaging  but  I could see  from the cut lines on the dies that this was probably the outcome they were after.  I cut the two  die parts out of white card and  coloured the baubles with Spectrums. To make it easier to glitter I used a spray adhesive, saves time and getting covered in glue.
 I've realised after looking at my backlog of cards I only showed one of the cards I did for Sheena so here are a couple more.

This was made using one of the embossing folders, by inking the folder, embossing, then adding gold embossing powder. The leaves were painted with the silks , I didn't have a red , so I used Spectrums then painted over with the ice silk .

Love this image of the robin, after stamping and colouring I placed the image into the snowfall folder.. The background used the fir branches folder with Coredinations  card stock  which was sanded after embossing.
More of both show samples again tomorrow but for now
Happy Crafting
