Guest designing: Sparkling Christmas collection from Spellbinders

Hi Everyone!

I am super thrilled to be here today to share some projects that I’ve made with the  absolutely wonderful Sparkling Christmas collection from Spellbinders. These dies are absolutely amazing – In just a few easy steps you will be able to create some Amazing looking cards  - sometimes I like spending hours on my designs - other times I want  my card to look really worked at without having to put too much effort into making them - The cards I'm sharing today are cards just like that (-:

My first card is very simple to make! 
1. Create a cardbase from Craft cardstock
Diecut and emboss a panel from kraft cardstock.
Ink the panel using distress ink; Brushed coudory and Walnut stains
Diecut the wonderful s4-1062 Festive Noel from Heavy watercolor paper and color the different twigs and branches - Use a glitter pen for the snowflakes - make sure to leave out space for the NOEL letters.
Diecut the noel letters from gold cardstock and adhere to the center. 
Adhere the Beautiful center piece to your card with foam adhesive to give the card some extra dimension.

The second card is made almost the same way as the first - the difference being the tree in the center and the sentiment. The tree is created by layering the diects from a fabulous set called S4-1064 Kaleidoscope Christmas Tree consisting of Three different versions of the sam tree - it is not till you layer them up that you discover how amazingly Beautiful they become. 
The sentiment is from the super useful S4-1065 Christmas Mix and Match

I couldn't help myself but created Another take on the same tree - the colors, the numbers of dies you use  the possibilities with these dies are simply endless:

For my last card I used only one of the dies - the top layer die- to make yet Another version of this tree. Here I simply inked (distress ink) a piece of vellum that I let dry before I adhered my White diecut tree to it and trimmed away the excess. I added the star and used the dots from s4-1062 Festive Noel to create some shiny ornaments. 
The bg panel is embossed using this Lovely CLASSIC CHRISTMAS Cut and Emboss Folder
