Another Sneaky Peek, and more

Good afternoon everyone

Here is my next Sneaky Peek for the SWALK Winter Cheer range, I love this shop till you drop image, I can think of so many friends and family this would be appropriate for in the winter months, I hope my Sister-in-Law Julie isn’t reading this, because if she is, she knows what she is getting on her Birthday card in December!

Actually all my sneaky peeks in the lead up to the launch are my prepared demo’s for the show’s so if you see something you like and would like to create yourself, make sure you tune in for the Launch on Friday at 12 noon on Create and Craft, there are then loads of shows planned for you, once the times are all confirmed, I’ll post them on here for you 🙂

I also had a good old play this weekend with my two new favourite dies. These are the marianne creatables dies icicles and Christmas Trees. Honestly I think they may be my favourite dies EVER! and I have a few!

I think it’s the simplicity that appeals to me, and the ability to make a really stunning card quickly. I have made a card just using the dies, so you can see how fabulous they are, but I would also love to use these to embellish Christmas Cards and Wintery themed cards too. In-fact I am cooking up an idea for these to work with the Winter Cheer range as I type!

Hopefully you can see that one of the trees has been glittered, I’ve done this after it was die-cut by spraying with stock and stay and sprinkling with crystal glitter, try it it works a treat! I’ve done the same to the icicles.

I’ve added dimension to the card by, using Collall 3D Glue Gel to lift up the panel that the icicles are stuck to, to add depth to them, and also to layer the trees, so they really stand proud of the card. I think having only one of the trees glittered kind of adds to the wow factor too.

Both of these, and lots more of the Marianne dies are available over on the Crafter’s Companion Website.

Hope you enjoyed looking at my cards for today.

See you tomorrow 🙂

    1. Hi Jacqui – I would say don’t listen to idle gossip, there is more than one green eyed monsert out there 🙂 get one or two packs and make your own decision. If you want to see some truly stunning results with spectrum Noir pens look at Linda’s Blog – and this should show you just how fantastic they are.

  11. Hi Leann, I love both your cards, I think I will have to invest in some of the SWALK stamps, they are so cute.I am impatiently waiting for my Spectrum Noir pens to come back into stock, my husband bought me the whole range for my birthday in August but only a few of the packs were available, so I feel like a child waiting for Christmas lol. Great tip for using stick n stay with glitter, your winter scene cards are lovely.
