Graphic 45 Christmas card

Hello folks !

Let's start this new week with a card create with the Winterwonderland papers by Graphic 45 :

What I love about Graphic 45 papers is there is always something to cut out ! Here it's the gorgeous poinsettias... I added few stickers from the same collection too, and used the Walnut Stain distress ink to enhance the vintage look.

You can a look at the first card I made with this collection here.

Embossed Merry Christmas card

Hi there !

It's day #15 of my 30 cards before Christmas event ! We are halfway from the end of the giveaway, so you really need to start commenting if you didn't, because commenting  on my cards (and being a follower) is how you can enter the giveaway !
Take a good look at today's card before saying something about it...

I embossed the central frame with the Merry Christmas and Vintage Holidays folder by Sizzix, then gently applied Firebrick distress ink over the embossed title.
I also applied the red ink on the poinsettias, and some Walnut Stain on the edges of the DCWV papers.

It's not a fancy card, but I do like the embossing effect on this one.
I will came back with a card made with Graphic45 papers tomorrow, so I'm excepting to see you tomorrow too !

Thank you for your time, have a great Sunday !

Plaid deer Christmas card

Another day, another card...

Back to CAS for a white card as a base, and some DCWV papers with Little B dies...

The sentiment was hand cut from one of the sheet of the Christmas Plaid stack by DCWV, and the dies were cut with the Christmas Holidays set by Little B. Two small snowflakes came from a small punch.

Having a white background is not my usual, I'm still thinking something is missing ! Well, I will get back to myself tomorrow ! But if you like this card, please let me know !

Tim Holtz style Christmas card

Hello there !

I found some Alterations Christmas embossing folder not long ago at Tuesday Morning, with Tim's Found relatives cards, and it was about time to use it ! Here is what I created :

I cut scrap of papers to match the pattern of the folder, and used the Letterpress technique to create the background. If you don't know this technique, it's super simple. You ink your embossing folder on the front side (just the raised design) before running it with the paper in your machine (I used my Big Shot for that). The ink I used there was of course the Walnut Stain distress ink...

Yuo know my love for fussy cutting, and that's what I did with one of the relatives card... A wooden sentiment distressed with ink and the card was done... I wish my sewing machine was out of its box, I would have added some stitches between the different papers.

Thank you for stopping by today. Please let me know what you are thinking of my cards so far. Each card's comment will earn you an entry in my giveaway...

Have a great day !

Rita Barakat's fairy for a Christmas card

Well... I'm up with some creativity today, inspired by my friend Rita Barakat and her stickers. Can you spot the one I used ?

This sticker is a journaling tape decorated with one of her fairies. I draw around the sticker to create a wider decor on my card, and paint all with watercolors.

Papers used on this card are from the October Afternoon kit I used before, and sentiment is written with black epoxy alphas by Sticko.

I hope you like this one of a kind Christmas card ! I'm so glad you stopped by today ! May I have the pleasure to see you tomorrow too ?

Don't forget about the giveaway (comment and follow to enter) and have a great day...

Prima doll Christmas card

Long time I didn't play with my (Prima) dolls ! It was about time to used this Christmas one !

 A lot of layers and Prima products... Fairy Belle papers, moulds, paper clay, flowers, die, chalks, doll stamp,...
Soft colors are nice for Christmas too if you add a little gold and glitter...

I added some watered white gesso over the Art stones and microbeads and when dried some gold ink. I used the gold to stamp the sentiment and color parts of the dress.

I does have a shabby chic, doesn't it ? I think it's pretty as a jewel !

This is my 12th Christmas card. Can you believe we are almost half way of the 30 ? Did you like all, none or just some of my cards so far ? Don't hesitate to tell, your comment will earn you an entry to my giveaway if you are a follower...

Rendez-vous tomorrow for another Christmas card. Have a wonderful day waiting for our date...

Christmas penguins ?

Because my first card was so super easy and quick to make, I made another one, so you have two Christmas cards today instead of one !

I received the November issue of Making Cards a little late (coming from UK via France...) after being published in this magazine find me on page 64-65 if you have it !). But I found cute papers AND stamps with my magazine I had to use for my cards... If I had the December issue, I would have use the free gift too to create more !

I stamped directly the sentiment on the penguins images with red ink. Love the font of these stamps !

What will be tomorrow's card. Well, you'll have to stop by tomorrow to know... Sorry no peeking. Don't forget to comment and follow before leaving to enter my giveaway !

Thanks for your time and have a great day !
