A Little bit of Sparkle

The background to this card is made from red sparkle texture paste by Cosmic Shimmer. I must confess that I made it last year and couldn't work out what to put with it!

Inspiration finally struck when I found the big red bauble topper and matched it with the JOY stamp from last months Craft Stamper magazine. A Hunkydory poinsettia just finished it off!

More Embossing with Gilding Wax

Now that I have made most of my Christmas cards, the pressure is off and I can play and experiment a bit more! So I dug out my gilding waxes and embossed some black card. This embossing folder was a freebie a couple of years ago and the stag stamp and die were from the majestic moments from Simply cards magazine.

You can't see the glitter in the photo, but this card really does sparkle!
The waxes are a mixture of alchemy waxes by Imagination crafts and and metallic wax from Creative Expressions
This card was going to be for Christmas, but I was a bit heavy handed with the gold gilding polish, so covered it up with a die cut spaceship!

Craft Room Tidy Up!

I picked up a bargain table and bookcase for the craft room (ie the small boxroom)- which has necessitate in a BIG TIDY UP!

I am a bit of a messy crafter and like to be surrounded by things to give me inspiration, but it was getting a bit out of hand. 

I had to take out most of the boxes and storage units to fit the new furniture and this forced me to clear up the piles of paper, stamps and embellishments that I have lying around

However I can't promise that it will stay this neat and tidy for long!
