Spellbinders and Sheena again

Morning, just a few more cards  to you from the two shows.
 This one all the presenters seemed to like, it was fun to make. Think of all the different colour ways you could do!
I used some double-sided adhesive for this effect. Die-cut a piece of black card using both the dies in the set, then use just the outer label die to cut the double-sided adhesive. Remove one side of the  sheet to reveal the adhesive and place on some white card .now remove the other side and place the  black die-cut on top. With one of the sheets you removed place on the picture die and cut. All you need from this  is the pieces that are the snow, place these on to the adhesive to protect these parts while you cover the  other parts with glitter. Make sure you you clear away all the excess glitter before removing the snow sections. Then  add the white or crystal glitter for the snow. I made the card blank from a one of the Grand Labels one, which was embossed using a Crafter's Companion embossing folder.
Hope this made sense,.
I might use this for my Christmas card this year, I have so much glitter, don't use as much as I use to, not like in the  days of the Medallion stamps.

A bit of a mixture of  last years tree and baubles from this years's . Did you see the new Lili of the Valley papers on some of the samples ? Sorry can't help using these.......

Two more cards from Sheena 's show using Distress ink, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot.
The first was a stepper card with an acetate cover., the second was purely stamping and inking.
Time to get to work on something you will see on Monday..........
Happy Crafting.
