This time I tried embossing on the glass but it didn't work. So I used the Northern Frost die, my Big Shot, and some glossy cardstock. Picking out those tiny little pieces took some time but after that all I did was use some SNAIL to adhere them, added some rhinestones on and around the flakes, added some mica flakes inside, and tied a marina mist striped ribbon around it. I tried lights inside but you couldn't see the snowflakes when the lights were on. The mica chips are perfect!This really is beautiful. Very peaceful, too.
I must say that Christmas snuck up on me yet once again. I am going to make up for not posting much in December. This is my first creation with the new hearts embossing folder in the mini available starting Jan. 4th called Fashionable Hearts. It is just like my favorite butterfly folder called Beautiful Wings. The folder cuts and embosses all at the same time. The hearts have dots, stripes, houndstooth, and other raised patterns on them. So cute and only $11.95! You will also need your Big Shot, some rhinestones, cardstock scraps (I used subtles and brights), and some striped ribbon (I used melon mambo). I found the picture frame in my closet while I was decluttering. It is 12x15. It came with a mat, I used some white striped designer paper from the neutrals pack to back it. It took me about 4 hours from beginning to end. Cutting out the hearts takes minutes. Laying them on takes hours. I tried to stick with the color order of the rainbow, ROYGBIV. I used SNAIL to adhere them. The rhinestones are added randomly. I love my Big Shot. The new accessories that will be available Jan. 4th for it are wonderful. I hope you saved some Christmas money!

This is so beautiful!! I used a glass ornament with a flat front and attached a snowflake I cut out from the Northern frost die and my Big Shot. The silver glimmer paper is gorgeous! I punched little 1/4 inch circles out of the leftover glimmer paper from the snowflake and attached them all around. Inside are some micha chips from the current mini. I tied ribbons around the top, one satin and one organdy. The trick to this was NOT to use glue. It slid all around. I actually used SNAIL to attach the glimmer pieces. I added a small rhinestone to the middle of the snowflake. It does take a bit of time to pop out the pieces of the snowflake but it is worth it.
Come on over this weekend and make one. Class times are Saturday at 1:00 and Sunday at 2:00. RSVP so I can have a kit ready for you.
