Rejoice! It's Christmas morning ... and we celebrate that our Saviour is born!

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas! 

The gift of joy
The gift of love
The gift of peace
May all these be yours this Christmas

Then I used one of the other little angels ...

Here is the pair of them ...

Festive Branch

It's the last challenge at CASology for 2019. How this year has flown by! The cue word is BRANCH.

I started with the Alexandra Renke Branch with Leaves die.  I used some of my patterned paper stash and added white enamel to highlight the berries. Added a button - more stash reduction!

Come and be inspired by a visit to check on the creations of the design team. Looking forward to seeing your take on the cue word.

Happy Birthday

I have a few friends who have Birthdays in December so here's one of my cards.

Love this colour combination. 

The embossing powder I used for the butterfly is Gold Pearl - which I did on vellum.

Joy to the World

I'm always amazed at what makes me buy a new stamp set ... sometimes it's just one image among many, sometimes it is a special sentiment in just the right size and font!

I love the small sentiments in the Merry & Bright stamp set and paired them with the layered tree from Favorite Season.

This was my first card ...

I thought that the string would perhaps be better at the bottom  - and I added more trees on this one ...

The Merry Christmas sentiment in the tree was embossed in silver to match the silver string, and silver liquid pearl dot.

Floral Squares Card Set

Here's a quick way to make a set of cards AND use up some of the stash of inked paper I have.

Go through your stash of inked cards. I have a lot of these because when I have finished a project and there is still some distress ink on my craft mat, I spritz it and smooch a piece of card to use up the ink.

I die cut the set of Floral Squares from Pinkfresh studio, and played around with the papers to see which ones I wanted to use.

Here's the full set done.

Unfortunately, this white linen card stock had warped.  I must flatten it out with the weight of some heavy books.

On this one, I kept a strip of the inked card to add to the edge.

I love the flow of this one.

Grounded in the earth ... floating towards the sky.

Christmas Poinsettia

Time for some traditional Christmas cards ... let's start with a beautiful poinsettia! This is the Modern Poinsettia from Altenew - with the matching die.

I created the background with the Gradient Stripes, and added foliage with the Ellen Hutson Pine leaves from the Poinsettia & Pine dies.

A close up of the gold embossing on the flower and word die ... I inked the word die with Versamark and then embossed it. Love the effect.
