 Hello everyone,

I have some bauble cards to share today with stenciling on them and glitter...

I was going to split the post into two but forgot and just kept going, so sorry this post is so long..yes, I could have deleted half of the post and started a new one, but that seemed like an effort, and I wanted my lunch..

Die cut a few..on water colour paper..

Then water painted light blue..

Deeper blue..

And red..

Then stenciled with pastes..

Different stencils and pastes, white and gold..

This is using the Stamperia gold glitter paste..

Just white paste, which leaked.

and a snowflakes stencil in the gold..

When totally dry [ 2 days] I started building the cards..

I added gold thread onto the baubles and stuck them down at the back..

Added the little bows separately..

I had to use slim grey ribbon on this one as I ran out of gold thread, had it for years [the gold thread] and never used it, then in one day, I used nearly every scrap I had..

So, I didn't like the ribbon much, so die cut and added a pine needle branch.

On all of them..

Plus, a teeny grey bow held in place with these tweezers,
 that I used to hate, but now would not be without..

On all of them and then some Nuvo Crystal drops " Simply White' 

Then onto the red and using TH kraft stock card for 
the background panels as they marched so well...THEN!!!!

Crazy cat came in and just plonked right in the middle..

But without a care in the world just lay down and said Hi!..

Golden baubles going down, with gold sentiment and thread..

Gold leaves and drops...

So three down..

Lovely shine and sparkle..

and individually...Red

Light Blue..

Deeper Blue..

Thank you so much for stopping by..

I'll see you tomorrow..

I'm running out of Christmas stuff..
some I cannot share until just after Christmas

Beautiful ! Those baubles are stunning, look gorgeous in the blue...and in the red! I've had a little helper today too- trying to wrap Christmas gifts with a very interested (and covetous) dog is not easy- he really just wants to unwrap them all again- ripping off the paper is such fun!xx
