I know it has been a while since I last posted, but with the holiday and my back problems, I haven't been doing much. I want to post a picture of some tickets that I made for a swap. I really like how they turned out but am thinking of making another set for myself for scrapbooking my Christmas pictures.

 I love the silver and blue along with the bling.  I created them by cutting out a strip 1" by 2" by 10" of the silver shiny cardstock. I then cut out a white cardstock strip in the same dimensions. I glued the silver strip and the white cardstock strip together. I scored them at at 2" all the way down. I then took my hole punch and cut the half circles at the score lines to make them appear to be tickets.

I then punched out snowflakes from some blue shiny paper. I layered the blue snowflakes alternating the arms of the flakes. I used a small pop dot between them to give them dimension. I then put a bling on the top of each of them after I glued them to the tickets.  I then used silver stickles to create the 3 dots. After I was done I wound the blue and white twine on the second ticket to give it some more color and a further punch of dimension.

I hope you enjoy seeing these as much as I enjoyed making them.

Well that's all for now. Happy Crafting!

  1. Silver and blue are such pretty colors together! Thank you for stopping by my blog! You had asked about the liquid applique that I used to create the faux popcorn. It was really an experiment that happened to work! ;) I knew I wanted to create popcorn and had originally started balling up tissue paper, but that looked sloppy and wasn't happy with how it looked. So I decided to try the liquid applique. It took two tries, but I got it to work and was happy with the results. :) Not all of my experiments work though! But sometimes I get lucky! Have a great night!
