Winter Picnic

Cindy is out host in The Shabby Tearoom this week and has picked out this beautiful Wintery inspiration photo and asks we create a card or project using white or cream, silver and glitter. Fun, fun, fun!

Our fabulous sponsors this week are JustRite Stamps, who are giving away this wonderful Prize Package which includes JustRite Custom Charm Dies,Charming Christmas Cling Stamps,Elegant Charms Cling Stamps and Be Charmed Cling Stamps (with a value of $84.80!) to our Winner!

I have made my card with the Lace Borders and the greeting is from the Christmas Charms set. The detail is these stamps is amazing, they are fab to work with. I also loved this colour pallet of whites and creams together with a hint of sparkly silver. layering up die cuts, I used kraft card for the plain card but decided it needed toning down with my ink dabber (my fave product at the moment). For the Snowflake, I've painted a chipboard flake in white Crackle Paint and sprinkled with glass glitter, the layered an October Afternoon die cut flake and wrapped some mini Vintage Tinsel around a button. Lace, cream seam binding, pearls, dots and resin star add softness. The greeting has been wrapped around a mini cotton spool and threaded onto this Maya Road star pin.

I've also used the Christmas Charms stamps to decorate some baubles!

These were plain glass ones which I filled with strips of paper - sheet music and Festive greetings, then stamped and embossed the tag charms, added hints of glitter and finished with a gorgeous satin bow with bells. The below ornament is finished with silky crush ribbon, chain and some diamante sparkles!
