Pearl Snowflake Card

Hi everyone, I was inspired by Sarah Moerman's card here and I have been wanting to make something similar.  And I finally did it. 

For this card, I first die cut the card base using Hero Arts Frame Cut Big Snowflake.  Then I use the small snow flake stamp from the Hero Arts Stamp It: Winter set to stamp the background with Broken China distress ink.  Dry embossed the die shape using Snow Flyrries embossing folder from Sizzix, apply Pearl Arylic Paint to the raised area, and finally tie a snowflake brad (dabbed with Pearl Arylic Paint) with blue twine.

I am going enter it the current Tuesday Trigger - Shimmer & Shine challenge.  Also I'd playing along for a Flickr challenge hosted by Barb Engler.  See details here.  Oh one more and that's the current Simon Says Stamps Challenge - Snowflake.

Knotty Pearly Wreath

Hi everyone, I am so happy today I've made the following card.

As soon as I found out the theme of current CAS-ual Fridays' challenge - Create a Clean And Simple project that features a knot or knotsI know what I want to do, it just took me a little time to finish the card.  And I thought the pearls are shiny enough to enter this current Tuesday Trigger: Shimmer and Shines challenge over at Moxie Fab World.

I trimmed very thin green cs strip (in three shades), tie a bundle of three into knots, and glue them down in the shape of a round wreath.  Then embellished with white pearls, and red twine bow.

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely weekend.
