12 Days of Christmas - Day 11

 
Unruly PaperArts is sponsoring a 12 Days of Christmas Link-up Party.  I am having so much fun making Christmas Cards this year!  Today I am sharing a few more of the cards from the Quick Quotes class I attended recently!
 
 
When I went to class I took my Wink of Stella and Dew Drops!!! 
 
I got a little behind in class... this set I finished at home this week!
 


 No card is finished with out a little bit of bling. (Dew Drops)
 
 
I love layering papers and colors...
 
 
On my cards I added the darker blue panel. 
 
 
If you look closely you can see the shimmer from the Wink of Stella!
 
 
I never follow directions. 
On these I knotted the ribbon in the corner. 
I was supposed to wrap it around the white panel... OPPS!
 
 
One more day, see you tomorrow!

12 Days of Christmas - Day 9

 
 


Christmas ornaments with SmoothFoam

I had the privilege to review Lisa Fulmers new book

 

I was so inspired after reviewing the book, I pulled out some SmoothFoam ornaments I had in my stash.  Following Lisa’s suggestions for working with SmoothFoam I found it much easier than my past trial and errors!  If you like to craft with foam I highly recommend adding this book to your library!
 
See the full review on the Altered Pages Blog today!
 

 
Two tips I will share with you that I used making my ornaments...
 
the first, sanding the edges before painting.
 
 
The second, working with the foam on skewers.... there is so much more in the book... worth the read!

 
Supplies used:
Bell - Paint, ribbon, twine and decorative embellishments (pinecones & holly)
Snowman - Gesso - Top Hat, eyes, toothpick nose, beads, buttons and fiber
Tree - Paint, twine and Dew Drops 
WINK of STELLA was paint on each to give them some sparkle!
