Ice and Flowers

Happy New Year!

On my first card of 2018, I used few Sparkle N Sprinkle glitters and embossing powder and Tonic papers.

SNS Supply list:

Creative Expressions - Faux Quilled Leaves
Sizzix - Holiday Green Mini
Spellbinders - Rose Creations, Floral Ovals, Labels Eighteen
Craft Concepts Embossing Folder - Budding Vine
Distress Ink - Tattered Rose

I had lots of fun to play with New Tonic papers and some old dies from my stash. Flowers are die cut with Spellbinder Rose Creations dies out of Pink Champagne Craft Perfect Embossed Paper. I love that this paper keeps its texture even after shaping it. Edges of the flower petals are inked with Versamarker Embossing Pen and heat embossed with Silver Detail Embossing Powder. In the centre of each flower, I adhered the pearl.

On the background, I used Chrome Silver Craft Perfect Mirror Cardstock. To add the texture to it, I embossed it with an embossing folder. For matting layer, I used Pink Champagne Craft Perfect Embossed Paper. To save this amazing paper, I cut all the flower from matting layer. You don't see it but Mirror Cardstock hides punch of flower-shaped holes in the matting layer. 

Foliage is cut out of Sticker Paper with dies from Creative Expressions Faux Quilled Leaves set and Sizzix  Holiday Green Mini set. Quilled leaves are covered with Red Berry Glitter and branches are covered with Cloud Nine Microfine Glitter. To the berries, I added White Blizzard Nuvo Glitter Drops.

I liked this card, so I made another one with a similar design but in different colours and in the landscape. Instead of Pink Champagne, used Deep Sea Dive Craft Perfect Embossed Paper and switched Red Berry Glitter to the Caspia Sea Microfine Glitter GM2048. A bit of Broken China Distress Ink was used around the sentiment.   
This card needed some balance in the upper right corner. So I made few dimensional dots with White Blizzard Nuvo Glitter Drops and covered them with Caspia Sea Microfine Glitter (one tiny dot is added to the bottom left side too - for the balance). After Glitter Drops was dried, I brushed off the excess glitter. 

Thak you for the visit!
Hugs & smiles,

  2. These cards are gorgeous Eret! The mirror cardstock and the sparkly glitters go hand in hand! Beautiful work.

  3. Eret - WOW! Just absolutely amazing. What beautiful cards. I love how you shaped those flowers with the craft paper, and they kept their texture. I will be stealing this idea for sure! I LOVE this card. And, your landscaped card in another color. Both are stunners. Gorgeous.
