Spellbinders 2012 Heirloom Ornaments Card

Evening all! 

Hope you've all got the hatches battened down, as they say, because it's a bit bit breezy to say the least! I'm sure our bins are chasing my daughter's playhouse around our garden right at this very moment. 

Anyway, I'm back tonight with another card I made spreading my Elliott's Angels Wings for Hope and Chances Creativity. This is the second card I have made using the very versatile Spellbinders 2012 Heirloom Ornaments, which is still on sale at a fabulous price. This time I wanted to make a card and here is the result-

I made the card using the waste from cutting out three baubles and then I used different scraps of paper behind the cut outs to create the baubles. 

I added some ribbon to the top of the baubles and then some sporadically placed sequins to give it a bit of bling. 

This is a really quick and simple card, which is great if you've got lots to make at this busy time of year. 

The list of ingredients I used:

First Edition Paper - Stocking Fillers
Centura Pearl - Hint of Silver
White Card
Collall - Tacky Glue & All Purpose

Check out Hope and Chances Creativity's blog here where you will find lots of inspiration from my very talented fellow Angels. 

As always thank you for taking the time to stop by. 

Toodle pips!

Spellbinders 2012 Heirloom Ornaments

Hey everyone,

Hope you are all enjoying a dry and safe bonfire night! I'm back tonight with my second project as an Elliott's Angel for Hope and Chances Creativity

My die this month was the gorgeous and very apt 2012 Heirloom Ornaments, which if you're quick to click on the link you maybe able to grab a bargain, as these are currently on sale!

My first thought when I opened the envelope and saw the die set was 3D baubles! I had a few ideas of what I could do and this is what I came up with....

The first bauble I made by cutting the shapes from an old book and then gluing them together, adding a ribbon, bow and a charm, which my mom had given me some time ago from an old necklace.

The second bauble was made by cutting out pieces using two of the dies and then gluing them together as above to form a open work bauble.

My third and final bauble was made by simply alternating two different coloured pieces of card and gluing them together. As I was making this bauble I thought of how you could turn it upside down and perhaps make it into a hot air balloon! A project to add to my ever increasing list! If anyone beats me to it I would leave to see any projects made.

I have to add that I had to battle with rain and spiders in the conifer tree to get these photographs! All in the name of crafting lol! 

The ingredients I used

Stickles - Diamond
Hot Glue
Core-dinations Card Red
Old Book Pages
White Card Stock
Collall - Tacky Glue
