A Christmas gift!

Happy holidays!
Just a few days now, and Christmas is here!
I`ve made a Christmas gift for today`s post at Flourishes, using one of my all time favorite Flourishes sets, the Poinsetta and Boxwood.

I made the box from cardstock, and decorated it with Spellbinders Fleur de Lis die cuts and satin ribbon.

As you see, I`ve made an acetate window for the recipient to have a sneak peek at the contents...

A close-up of the window... The poinsetta was stamped, colored with Le Plume Markers and cut out.

Inside the box...

...The set of cards.

This was my last Limelight sunday, and I have so enjoyed my time at Flourishes! I would like to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a happy, creative new year! Thanks so much for visiting my blog!
I hope to see you all next year:)

Framed Nasturtiums

Happy Sunday!

A while back I recieved a message from Julie at Flourishes, asking if I wanted to be the Limelight Designer of December over at the Flourishes Newsletter. I can`t even tell you how excited I was!! It is such an honor, so thank you so much, Julie!

This is my first card for the Limelight month. I chose to work with the beautiful Nasturtiums set, and colored it with Distress Inks.
I used Spellbinders dies to create the frame, and If you are interested in seeing a little step-by-step instruction on how to make it, simply head over to the Flourishes Newsletter!
The background is cuttlebug embossed, and I pierced around the edges with the Victorian borderabilities set from Spellbinders.

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

Flower Power!

Happy Wednesday!

Half way through this Flower-Power-Retro inspired card I nearly gave up, because it was sooo time consuming! I did finish it though, but if you are looking for a "ten minute card" this is not the one you`d want to make...LOL! The card is based on this SCS sketch.

I used the smaller part from the Fleur De Lis Pendants set for the background, and I also used the Blossom Nestabilities. The flowers are from Flourishes , and they are stamped, colored with Le Plume Markers and cut out. IOW very easy;)

Thanks so much for stopping by and have ha wonderful day!
