Muse #47 and two surprise cards

One more post today - I saw the Muse challenge a few days ago and the card by Therese Clavird is just soooo fun and CAS-tastic I had to play! 

It just makes me smile :)

Of course I can't just copy it, although I really would like to do just that..... so I took some free interpretation here and turned it into a Christmas card:

I basically just went with the underlaid die-cut with different papers, got the horizontal line with the silver thread and the stars. To leave the card just on a white background looked kind of bland, so I cut some strips of the tree paper and glued it to the sides of the card turning the ombre patttern around, to give it more life.

Well, I like it, it looks quite elegant and I really like the sparkle from the glitter paper. 

Materials: Papertrey Christmas tree die, sentiment by Impression Obsession, small stars -  Simon Says dies


And here I want to share a card with you that I got from my blog friend Eva - one of the winners of my blog candy as a thank you card - it is a dream in blue - such a gorgeous wintry scene!

Thank you Eva!

And this beauty I got from my blogging friend Kim - such an unexpected surprise! The abstract trees sparkle and the background is so pretty!

Thank you Kim!

Thanks you so much for visiting and lovely comments - you make my day, I so much appreciate you taking your time to do that!

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
