For You

Hi everyone!
It's hard to believe how fast the weeks running away ... soon it's the first Sunday of Advent already!! I'm trying to work on with my Christmas cards and here is one more I want to show you.

I started with one Wild Rose Studio stamp that I colored with my Copics, and papers from Maja Design the "A Gift For You" collection.

I made the background with watercolors, added some Glossy Accent and glitter. Then I heated in Stampendous Shabby White embossing pouder around the image edges.

The cones are made with a Memory Box Pinecone Frame die cut that I used as stencil together with embossing paste, Old Silver embossing pouder and Red Crushed Glass Glitter from Stampendous.

I stamped the sentiments from K-designs under the image and on a piece of vellum that I gold heat embossed. And that´s it I think.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hugs, Birgit

Enchanted Christmas

Hello and welcome back!
The other day I tried to make some order among my old Christmas papers and then I found a pack of beautiful glittery images from Papermania "Enchanted Christmas", I can´t understand why I havn´t used them before.

And just because they are so beautiful I didn´t want to destroy them with a lot of embellishments, at least not to the largest images. Here I just added a little Merry Christmas stamp.

And at the back, I used another of the images, one where Santa goes out.

Very easily done...have a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

Santa Christmas Tree

Hi there!
I hope you smile a little bit about this card, because I do :) I got inspired when I saw this picture in my mailbox the other day.

My spruce seems to be a little kinder, not quite so crazy, I do not want to scare the kids at Christmas:) I used watercolors for the background and the Memory Box Frosted Christmas Tree die.

The Merry Christmas sentiment was made with a die from Mandys and the hood is made of cheesecloth which I colored in with Distress ink.
That´s it for today. Hope you had a nice weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

Small Christmas Cards

Hey there everyone!
I showing you a pair of small Christmas card or gift addresses today. There is space to write a greeting inside.

I've kept them pretty simple, but that's because the images from Reprint fits so well with these cards. The inside stamp is from Inkido.

Here with me it's really gray and gloomy weather right now, I long for Advent and some beautiful lights.
Anyway...thank you so much for coming by my blog!
Hugs, Birgit
