Festive Die Release 2016...
I thought I should share some of the samples I have made using the fabulous new Festive die range designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions.
the first sample today is made using the Ornate Holly Framed Peace die along with the Bold Snowflake Flurry, two of my favourites form the die launch ( although its hard to choose as one of my blog family said all of them are her favourites!) There is also a little sneak peak in here as the stamp is form my new Christmas Range which I will be sneak peaking form Monday next week!
I stared by making the background using the Midnight Blue, Purple Violet and silver shine pixie powders. The technique for this is one I am currently work shopping so I don't want to give too much away! I added Silver Moon gilding flakes and some of the little snowflakes that come in the set. There is even a little diamond snow in there as well ( talk about throwing everything at something!) I will be demoing this very soon and am planning my first new Video on this one!
I stared by cutting a piece of watercolour card to which I had added the midnight blue and Purple violet pixie powders to with the largest snowflake in the bold snowflake set. I covered it in spare glue and added diamond snow highlight the detail. I cut the next size false in bright white card and the final one in a scrap of the pixie powdered piece. I stacked these with mounting cushion and added stick on diamante ( form the wedding collection from Craft Consortium) at the points and in the centre.
I added this to the edge of the frame I made with the pierced background rectangles cut in bright white. I stamped the sentiment in jet black archival ink ( wait till Monday to find out which set this is from lol) on more of the pixie powder paper and cut it with the medium pierced flags die.
I made up the card as shown using Bright white and black to allow the background and focus element to be framed.
I hope you have enjoyed the amazing samples Sue Wilson has shown over the last few days showcasing this beautiful new collection of Dies.
