Frosted Snowman...... with hand made brads!

I have finally got around to experimenting  with the cosmic shimmer white glue.... it is awesome for making faux brads and pearl accents! Here are just a few I prepared on a sheet of wax paper. If you use U-mount, it's the paper protecting the padding and you get a front and back, that if like me, you usually discard (but I won't be doing that from now on!)

They are so easy to make. (If you look closely, I made a few "special shapes" but it was my first attempt!) I left the sheet to dry overnight and made them in assorted sizes. Sue Wilson showed us how to do these and I just love them!

Here is my first Christmas card I have made this year, and I put a few tiny white "glue brads" on it. I think they help to balance the empty space, what do you think?

I stamped this with the Creative Expressions "Snowmen" set 
(I just love this set)
Inked with Tim Holtz distress inks "Faded Jeans"
Stickles glitter glue "Frosted Lace" and "Icicle"
Sentiment from Stampin' Up! set called "Contempo Christmas"

Thanks for stopping by, and let me know what you think...

  1. what a great idea - i don't have any of the glue - but might just have to invest lol
    Your card is fabulous - love the blue. Your card would be perfect for the Sarah Hurley challenge this week Xmas but nO red or green
    Lisa ;)

  2. Lisa, once you try this glue you'll be hooked.. trust me!
    I am pleased with the blue and white, and would love to put it in the challenge... can you let me know the blog link?

    Great to hear from you again, and I always appreciate your comments.

  3. I have done a similar thing, but with glossy accents. Did a christmas tree then sprinled with glitter and left to dry, looked very effective. Lovely to see you yesterday.
