Ballroom Slipper

Ballroom Slippers 2015

Our wonderful sponsor for the month of January is:

The Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge has started for this week and the twisted for this week is anything goes. I have been wanting to try this die cut it is called Ballroom Slipper by sizzix. It was not hard to do once I found the instructions on line. They have printed instructions and a video so it made it easy to put together.

The papers I used are from my scrap ben.

I added some diamond mesh to give it some sparkle. I just love heal. So easy to make.

Some stickles all around the edges.

A prisma flower for the top. It was fun to make and they give you different pieces so you can make the front low cut, can make it as a slipper with no heal all kind of thing you can add to the front. So I’m going to play around with some. You could even make them as Christmas ornaments and tie a string on the back to hang it.

This is what the Ballroom Slipper looks like. Thanks for stopping by. I do hope everyone that lives in the north west is doing fine and was able to stay safe from that winter storm.

Where have all the BUGS gone?

Where have all the bugs gone 2015  f
Sorry have not been around been having problems with my Arthritis (all over) but bad in my hands. So had to go in and have some steroid injections in my hands (ouch), so the medication is finally working and I can type and make some cards again. Why does life do this us? I suffered with (really bad) migraines most of my life when I was younger and then they seam to kind of go away and now I suffer with Arthritis and it is both kinds. I have to remember to tell myself it could be worse, right?
Okay this card was for last weeks Twisted Thursday challenge and the twisted was to make a gatefold card. Now my wonderful quilling you see, I did these a long time ago when my hands worked really good. I thought the bugs would go nice with the boot. Our sponsor for this month is Bugaboo. My images is called “Rain Boot”.

All the pearls bare from All that Bling.

Cold Outside 2015  i

This what I did to the inside. I used a 6x6 stencil from crafters workshop called mini mod circles and used brilliance moonlight white. Add some rick rack, more pearls and brads.

Cold outside 2015  fl

The flowers I used Nellie Swellen punches. I used a foil to punch out the flowers, another long lost something I found. I also put the foil behind  the die cut.  You can see the ribbon a little more in this picture.

Here are my brads, can you tell they are fuzzy?

Cold outside 2015  dies
I hope you can tell… One of my blogging friends did this and I thought this was pretty neat. Cut the Spellbinder die out 2 times and moved one a little to the side. I think that looks pretty cool.

I added things to the sides because this is Emma (granddaughter) Christmas card but if you do not add things to the sides this card will fold down nicely in a large envelop.
