Joy to the World

Recently I found this paper by Fancy Pants, "Snow Village".
It has lovely paterns and some sweet tags.
The poinsettia is a stamp by "Clearly Besotted". Great to work with!

Stamped the poinsettia once on vellum and once on music paper and glued it onto each other, with the music tag behind it. Love the title is going wonderful with the houses on the paper!

Christmas Cards

Finally I started making my Christmas cards. Two weeks ago I found some wonderful inspiration on Hero Arts blog. During that week they worked together with "Silhouette", a brand of cutting machines. It was all about die cutting some elements and add stamping on one card. Now, I am not an owner of a Silhouette, but I have a "Cricut" cutting machine, and why not give it a try?!
First I admired a card of the talented Lisa Spangler.
I always love her style of cardmaking!
You can find it here:
I made a similar card, using a free image in Cricut Craft Room. Than added some pattern paper behind it. Paper with the name: "Aspen Frost", by Basic Grey. And than added stickles and sequins for some shine.

The second card I liked very much was a card made by Lucy wich can be found here:
I really love the shine she achieved on the trees and the shape of the trees
is adorable. They made me think of the trees on the "Don Juan" cartridge wich went with my Cricut machine when I bought it years ago. So, I started and here is the finished result. I am satisfied with it. Lucy told us how to receive the shiny layer on the trees and I can say: The shine just turned out as Lucy told us!

I feel thankfull for all the inspiration wich comes from Hero Arts blog. Thank you so much Lisa and Lucy!
This "project" was so much fun.
Thank you, everyone who is visiting!
Hope you enjoyed your visit.
