I am teaching a private class on Thursday with an ornament theme so am playing around with my Spellbinder 2011 ornament dies. This card uses the Basic Grey pattern paper Sweet Threads a summery type line of paper however I thought the flowers looked rather like poinsettias. The card is pretty straightforward I used an In the Making Merry Christmas stamp for the sentiment and covered it with Be Creative tape and Warm Highlight Glitter Ritz Glitter. I used a Sakura Quickie Glue pen to add some bling to the ornaments however it is not visable in the photo. Thanks everyone for stopping by and a special thanks for those who take the time to leave comments. :)

I used Stardream cardstock for most of the card to create a monocromatic look. I embossed my Couture Creations "funky poinsettia" embossing folder then cut out some of the petals so they would hang down inside the oval cutout. The sentiment is by Penny Black and embossed with Gold powder. I used my Spellbinder poinsettia and rubbed some Versamagic Rocket Red ink on it to make it stand out a bit from the background. Pearls are by Kaisercraft. The card shape was created by Spellbinder's Label 8.

The snowflake cutout is being sold at Crafty Capers and is made locally by Back Acre Wood. The snowflake started out as bare wood and I used a Ranger Paint Dauber in the color Pearl. I applied 2 coats of paint then I used my finger and spread a thin layer of Glossy Accents over the entire snowflake then I applied Glitter Ritz Ultra fine Warm Highlight Glitter to make it nice and sparkly. I stamped a Penny Black greeting on a circular piece of cardstock with Black Versafine Ink then glued the sentiment to the middle of the snowflake. I added a layer of Glossy Accents to add some extra dimension. I sewed the snowflake onto the card front with a piece of crotchet cotton so it can be removed and hung on a tree. I put a bow on the snowflake to try to hide the sewing. The background of the card is a Craft Concepts embossing folder that I applied Art Institute Dries White glue to then added more Glitter Ritz Warm Highlight glitter to.
Thanks for stopping by!

This card is done with a In the Making tree stamp. I used Art Institute's Clear drying glue with a metal tip on the top of the bottle. It make it much easier to get skinny lines of glue out. I used Glitter Ritz Ultra Fine Glitter in Emerald Green and Champaign on Basic Grey designer paper. The sentiment is by Hero Arts. I used Spellbinder long rectangles and long scalloped rectangles as well as the Standard Circles. Embossing folder is by Cuttlebug and gems are by Hero Arts. Thanks for stopping by!

This card design actually is a CASE from one Carly's Mom had done. The medallion is done with a Spellbinder die Anomone Flower Topper, Be Creative tape and Gun Metal Microfine Glitter Ritz. The embossing folder is by Cuttlebug and I jazzed it up with my Quickie Glue pen and more Gun Metal glitter. Cardstock is by Bazzill and Stardream.
Hope this card inspires you!
