Beautiful Bling!

I've been working away at a few projects this week and can share a couple of things on here today.
Leo's about ready to release the new set of Crafty Templates and it's been a joy to use them - a fab change from the Christmas stuff, but still quite cheery and full of seasonal, party bling.

In fact the new set is called "Bling and the City" and has some wonderful fashion templates, plus a New Year one thrown in for good measure. The matching goodies kit is obviously full of the right sort of stuff you need to get the most from the templates. There's shine, glitz, fuzzy stuff and lots and lots of glimmer and glow.

My favourite of the templates this time was this fancy boot and I loved making this card. I'm sharing a couple of photos so that you can see it standing up as well as a full-on image. The spots on the background paper are flocked and the main part of the boot is cut from the most fabulous glitter card stock. There are some other fantastic Footwear templates in this set, but this was my fave.

This gorgeous clutch bag template is another from the new set. I've used card, ribbon, gems, fabric flower and giant brad from the kit and added a swirl; painted silver and glitter-glued up, which I think I had leftover from a past goodie kit.
I punched a 1cm black circle and stuck it to the centre of the giant silver brad, then added black and silver glitter glue to keep with the glitzy theme. More info on the templates and the goodies kits HERE

This is another of the felt tree cards I made following Friday's DCM challenge - I planned to do some in other colours but this is as far as I've got. I do love this pale blue though.
The patterened paper is, I think the last remnant of that particular paper from the BF "Wonderland" kit.
Trees are white felt and the glittery dots are my newest Stickles - such a pretty plae blue colour, mm new fave Stickles!

That's all for the moment.....

The boot looks fab (but better on a card than my foot - I don't do heels!). Love the pretty pale blue for the Christmas card, too!

I love the boot Kathy. I agree though better on the card than for wearing.

I love that boot and the clutch bag, it is nice to see cards that are not for Christmas - although your Crimbo card is lovely too!

Incredible cards Kathy.

I do like what you've done with your BF paper left over ...making it into a scalloped edge. Clever. x
