Welcome to the Creative Expressions August 2014 Blog Hop! Hopefully, you got here from Kerry Hickton's Blog but, if you didn't, here's the start at the Creative Expressions News Blog! http://blog.creative-expressions.uk.com/2014/08/its-blog-hop-time-let-fun-commence.html
These new Christmas designs from the Singles Range at Creative Expressions include seven different stamps. as you will see from the samples made from the Blog Hop, they do not have to be used as they are but can be altered and interchanged to give lots of different options.
One randomly selected person commenting on this blog post before the closing date will win the following fabulous prize, which includes some of the new stamp designs.
For my project, I used the Believe stamp and here's my project with step by step instructions.......
Apply Cosmic Shimmer Flake and Glitter Glue to the stamp and stamp it onto Foundations Black Cardstock.
Using Cosmic Shimmer Polished Silk Glitters, apply the following colours one at a time: Silver Chrome, Golden Sand and Sahara Gold.
Sprinkle them randomly (I find that a very small spoon works best).
Trim to the size required. Add double sided tape around the 4 edges and sprinkle the 3 colours of glitter as before.
Matt and layer onto Vintage Gold and Black Foundations Cardstock.
For the background...........
Apply Flake and Glitter Glue to the small Christmas Tree from the Christmas Tree set of 4 trees. Stamp it 5 times across the bottom of a piece of Black Card.
Sprinkle the same glitters as before over the trees.
Glue the "Believe" panel into position.
And there's the finished card....a great one for a man who we know are so difficult to make for! I hope you like it!
