Leaping in the air...

Happy Thursday,
a change of colour and style from yesterday another sample for my stamp show launch of the Christmas range I have designed.  This is slightly more modern and in gold and glitter!

I stared by stamping the stars borders from my Magical Christmas clear stamp set in perfect medium across and down a piece of steel pearl card to make the background design.  I then added sticky embossing powder and heat set it before adding sahara gold polished silk glitter to the design.

I matted this with Antique gold pearl card and cut 2 of the largest pierced tags one in gold one in the silver.



Next I cut a large pierced tag in vintage gold card and stamped the sentiment, from the elegant stars and reindeer set, in silver shine detail embossing powder.  I then stamped the leaping reindeer ( the largest one in the set as there are of them) in the silver and heat set it before painting the reveres with Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue.  I added gunmetal polished silk glitter so the the shine shows when the glue dries ( thats the great thing about the CS gkllue it dries totally clear!)

I stamped the reindeer border along the bottom of the page and added the cut out reindeer leaping from the tag.

A large strip and bow of the champagne silky crush ribbon and a pearl embellishment ties the tags to the card.

For the remainder I added strips of double sided adhesive to the edges of a piece of card and glittered them with the gunmetal polished silk glitter and added a layer of gold to finish.

Enjoy...
