DAZZLING DIAMONDS WOW CARDS !

Hello Stampers !
Today , I wanted to share the cards I created in my Facebook live video last Friday evening . You can view the video here . As previously mentioned I first saw this idea shared by Jan Brown .
I have simply stamped the backgound using stamps from the Snow Is Glistening stamp set , only available for another 2 days ! If you don't have this one yet you NEED it! Then apply self adhesive sheet and add your dazzling Diamonds ! So simple yet so effective ! Here are my cards . This one uses Coastal Cabana .




I used Gorgeous Grape for this one


I hope you enjoyed seeing my creations , thank you so much for visiting my blog .

NOVEMBER STAMP A STACK


Yesterday I held my  stamp a stack and each lady created 12 Christmas cards using  6 different designs . It was such a fun day with lots of laughs !A Devonshire tea greeted the girls as they arrived and set the relaxed mood for the day. I decorated a bag and created a small bag to pop some chockies in as a little thank you gift for my lovely ladies who support me each and every month  I cannot recall who I  cased the bag decoration from so if it looks familiar to you please give let me know and I will give you a shout out .


  Then it was down to me to demonstrate the first set of cards . I told my girls I made all the mistakes in order for their cards to be perfect ! That will teach me to read my notes ! I had cased the card from Jan Brown and had forgotten to make sure the ink was dry before adhering the adhesive sheet ! It didn't turn out too bad and when I remembered what not to do it was all good !
Here are the cards created using this technique and I will be doing a Facebook Live showing how to achieve this look very soon .



The next set of cards were simply created by casing the Holiday Catalogue , don't forget this as it is a valuable resource I look to all the time ! I changed it up a bit by dry embossing the die cut circle and then applying some gold shimmer paint using a dauber . I also used some Dashing Along DSP for the second card .



Next another catalogue case by simply changing the colours around , this was the result ! I love  poinsettias so this set was one of the first I added to my list ! It is so easy to use and creates a simply stunning card every time  .


We just had to use the Snowfall thinlits and matching stamp set ! This gorgeous set is only available until the end of the month while supplies

last . The ladies created one card in red glimmer paper and one card using the pink glimmer .


Using Farmhouse Christmas this card was easily created and was cased from Pinterest but I was unable to locate the designer , please let me know if it is your design . I love it !




Lastly these two gorgeous cards were very simply but oh so stylishly created with some heat embossing stepping them up  ! I used the silver and gold lined note cards and envelopes for these cards which made them even simpler ! Easy peasy !


Most ladies had 2 sets of cards to go when we broke for lunch which consisted of cauliflower soup with fresh crusty bread and sausage rolls followed by lemon meringue pie and lemon tart - all home made ! Mary very kindly baked the lemon tart . Afternoon tea was a chocolate caramel slice to die for also baked by Mary .I had made vanilla slice - no one was very hungry though ! I wonder why  ! Each person was given a half pack of red and clear rhinestones to decorate their finished cards .
My last classes for this year are 6 th and 8 th December and I'd love for you to join me !
