Christmas tree

Happy thursday!

Today I have a Christmas card to share, with a beautiful image from Heartfelt Creations. It`s called Blue Spruce. I stamped it with Archival Ink, Olive, colored it with Distress Inks, and added some rhinestones for the sparkle. The first background is CB embossed and sponged with white pigment ink. The frame and the side elements are all spellbinders dies, papers from Graphic 45.

I hope you have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by!!

Autumn Owl!

This is a card made with one of Serendipity`s newest images. It is called Autumn Owl. I think it`s gorgeous!
I`ve colored it with Distress Inks. The background is cuttlebug embossed craft CS, slightly sponged with white ink. The frame is made with circle and square Spellbinders dies and the corners were cut with my Cricut. The decorative elements are Spellbinders dies too.

....And for those of you who had questions about the Ornament in my last post...

These were my supplies:

The little flourish die is called Floral Accents...
Simply attatch them around the circle with dimensionals.

Use dimensionals between all layers, and some hardware for the ribbon...

Was that simple or what!?
Hope this was helpful, and that you would like to try it out!

Thanks so much for visiting, and have a wonderful day!

Serendipity October challenge!

Happy thursday everyone!
It`s time for the monthly Serendipity DT challenge, and this time Mary has challenged us to do a christmas ornament or gift!
I have never done an ornament before, but had a blast doing this one, and it was super easy too!!

Once again I chose to work with the beautiful Snowflake flourish images. They come in two sizes, and I`ve used both for this ornament. The images are stamped with Color Box pigment brush pad, Cerulean, and colored with a lighter shade of blue. For the ornament shape, I`ve used spellbinders dies. I also added silk ribbon and a bow, and of course some pearls to finish it off.

So now you need to check out some more amazing works by the rest of the team:


And don`t forget the customer challenge at the Serendipity stamps gallery!
If you take part in the challenge, you will have the chance to win a prize!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Want to see something FUNNY?

Whenever I`ve finished a card I often show it to one of my kids, just to hear their opinion. You know, you always get the truth from kids...
So when I showed this card to my son today, all he did was to LAUGH!!
I said "what is it?" And he said "aah...the image is so funny..."
Yeah, right!! I could see all over his face that he was lying!
(I think he was laughing at the card in general...LOL!)

And after seeing his reaction, I had to laugh too!! So at least this card gave us a joyful moment of laughter this afternoon:))

Well, the image used on this FUNNY card is from Heartfelt Creations and is called Bubble Bath. It is colored with Distress Inks. Papers from Crate Paper, and borderpunch from Martha Stewart.

Thanks for stopping by today (and If you are laughing right now, that`s OK too)!!

OCC~Monochromatic mania!

This is a slightly different card made for the monochromatic challenge at Our Creative Corner. I guess you could say that I spent some quality time with my cuttlebug last night...LOL!

The sweet little Snowflake image is from Serendipity. I stamped it with Color Box Fluid Chalk, Pink Pastel, and sponged with Distress Ink, Antique Linen. All the layers are Spellbinders Dies, except the ones holding the ribbon. Those are Cuttlebug Dies.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!!
