Light-Up Snowflake Card x


Hello you lovely lot

I hope this finds you all well? Having a super week so far and finding time for crafting. It’s been busy here for me with work, some more fun Christmas makes plus even Halloween on my craft table. But today it’s back to Christmas

For my latest YouTube tutorial I created this 8x8 Christmas themed card and added some lights to make the Snowflakes sparkle a little more. The lush papers are more of my new faves from Craft Consortium and these are the Ink Drops Earth 12x12 bundle. I used Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide around the edges to add some darkness like through the papers

The wee Diodes I used are blue to match in with the cards colour-way. I used some older Dies from Chloe’s Creative Cards to make the 3 layered Snowflakes and with the same pattern papers and vellum on top. I also inked the edges of these. The swirls I used for foliage is a berry old die set from Crafters Companion but you could some leaf dies or stamps for a similar effect

The large sentiment die is another old one from my stash but you could use any you have or even a stamped sentiment would be great here.I mixed two glitters from Chloe’s, Starlit and Snowball to give a softer look that still catches the light and not forgetting all the gems

I also created this card below to show you can make a Light-Up card for any occasion

This one has more Craft Consortium paper but in the Dusk 12x12 papers. The floral dies are Summer Trio from Chloe’s along with the different layering dies

I changed it up and used some Black Soot Distress Ink on the edges of everything and an older Memory Box Sentiment die. The glitter on the flowers is Disco Fever and sadly you can’t get anymore.

Well check my YouTube for more emails and everything you need to make your own Light-Up card plus how to make it

Until next time

Christmas Bauble Card x


Happy Friday lovelies

Hope everyone is well? Having a good week so far? It's been crazy weather up here in Scotland and busy super bust with work. Feels like all my brain cells have disappeared after designing something special coming in a few weeks, so keep your eyes peeled for a............. Tree lol

Today I'm sharing my latest tutorial over on Youtube

I love a Bauble Card and had this on my list to make for a while and with it so busy this week decided this would be the perfect time. I designed a basic babble shape for anyone that wants to make there own but in the tutorial I show how you can use your dies to make your own

I made one before the tutorial to show what to expect in lush old First Edition papers but everything els eon the cards were the same

The flowers were made with a Chloe's Creative Cards die, Christmas Magnolia that I used the pattern papers along with vellum to make. I stamped and embossed in Gold for the main card and a Slate Silver for the paler one. Both I inked up with my Distress Oxides and shaped added lots of gems and glitter

The rich blue papers on the main card are from Craft Consortium and are the Ink Drops Ocean colour way. They are the most prettiest papers EVER and you know how much I love pattern papers. I also added some older snowflakes dies to the main card

I used some Chloe's glitter on both card, above I used Blue Diamond and the gold is Dulce de Leche. Below I used Sky's the limit and soft turquoise colour with silver sparkle

I added the glitter to the middle of the flowers with my gems along with the paler blue having embossed stamens and the main card I added gold glitter to the stamens 

But which one is your favourite? I can't decide? The pale is so pretty and the bold just pops

You can find the tutorial here plus in the description there is a link to a free Template so you can make your own. I can't wait to see what your version will look like

Until next time
