Peaceful Christmas

This card is so much prettier IRL. As I have mentioned, having big photography issues. The tree is embossed with silver EP, and it looks gorgeous on the panel with the pink and blue distress inks. I die cut "peace" from Winnie & Walter four times and stacked it.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I love to read you comments. Have a wonderful day!

Merry Christmas Wreath

This card is totally inspired by the current Time Out Challenge inspiration photo. As you can see, I took it quite literally.

 I am really struggling with photos lately because the light at this time of year is so difficult for indoor photography (with an iPhone LOL), and it's very hard to get the colors right.  My "door" is really brown, and it is made from a Pretty Pink Posh die that has 4 stitched squares in the middle that really reminded me of the door in the picture. Anyway, I used all sorts of different things from different companies: PTI, Paper Smooches, Pretty Pink Posh, Martha Stewart... It was really fun putting it together.

I am also sending this over to the Simon Says Monday Challenge where the theme this week is : Holly Jolly Stamping. Create a Christmas project.

I am trying to take it easy with the season, and enjoy it and keep the best and most important parts of it front and center. Thanks so much for coming by. As always, I appreciate your comments so much. Have a wonderful day.

Joy To The World

The new game is up at AAA Cards Challenge Blog. The theme this time is "Silent Night, Holy Night Christmas Cards". Paper Smooches "A Blessed Christmas" came to mind immediately when I though about a design. I love the cityscape 1 die, and decided to pair it with an interesting sky in celebration of that holy night. I used Paper Smooches Power Rays die behind the cityscape silhouette and inked each piece with distress inks. I heat embossed the star, but it came out with cracks in it because of the way it sat on the rays, so I had to make another one, cut it out and lay it on top. It was tough to get the points cut properly, so don't look too close.  LOL. I mounted my little scene on a piece of white sparkle paper to give it a little zip.  I like the way it looks though you really can't see it in the picture.  

Please head on over to AAA Cards and see what my fellow DT members have come up with for this challenge, leave them a little love and be inspired to create your own beauty. From here, I am linking my card to the following Challenges:
