Happy New Year!

Some exciting news! 

For the New Year, I will be joining the Creative Expressions Design Team and will be posting a new design every Wednesday to hopefully inspire you! 

My first post will be on Wednesday 6th January, so, whilst I give my blog a spring-clean, here is one of the Christmas decorations I made before Christmas. 


The MDF bauble shape was painted using some Silver Shimmer Paint.  

Once the paint was fully dry, the Christmas Tree design was stamped onto the centre of the mdf, using Flake & Glitter Glue, and Ice Blue Polished Silk Glitter was added.   

The stamp comes as a 2-piece set, so the second stamp was then used in a similar way to give the stars and sparkle using Lilac Polished Silk Glitter as a contrast.   

The bauble was then finished with some co-ordinating satin ribbon.

*** TOP TIP *** remember to wipe the flake and glitter glue off of your stamp as soon as you have stamped your image

The full Shopping List is below but should you have any questions please ask. It would be lovely if you want to leave a comment.
