Well we're nearly at the end of my demo samples for last weekend, just a few more to go.
Firstly I have used Spellbinder Nestabilities Star to create this Christmas decoration and AC textured card, ribbon, bell and jump ring from my craft stash and a wee bit of gold glitter.  I have used five stars in three sizes to create the 3d star but it would work equally as well with four.


This card could be used for any occasion if you changed the background papers.  I have used black card stock and Best creations Inc Christmas time CT Snowman, reverse.  The flower has been made using Spellbinder Peony cut and inked with Ranger distress ink black soot attached together with a black brad.  The swirls behind the flower have been made cutting up Spellbinder Shapeabilities fancy tags (oval).  Finally the strip has been created with Martha Stewart Edger arched lattice punch and the greeting is from PI Christmas stamps MM Christmas wishes, finished as normally with black ink pen around the edge.


Finally today another Gorjuss girl "Sitting" coloured with my copic's.  This velum in pink burst and pink holly is from the Papeterie, again I was asked to incorporate with my designs together with pink and white AC textured card stock.  I have used the new Spellbinder Nestabilities beaded ovals and have embossed then stencilled it with Ranger distress ink spun sugar.  The flowers have been made using my Spellbinder Nestabilities scalloped circles...I have used 5 for each flower 1 large 2 small and scrunched them finally adding a brad.
The greeting is again from PI stamps MM Christmas wishes layered on Martha Stewart edger punch new scallop and I have added some pink brads around the edges with, guess what?  More black pen!!  Can you see the trend!  LOL.

That's it for another day here, final card for you tomorrow folk and I have to say it was the favourite of most of the folk.
Happy crafting....I'm off now to get out the glitter!
