Muse Christmas Vision #50

Hi Everyone,

I am playing along with this weeks Muse Christmas Vision, where Elizabeth Stewart made a very pretty, glittery Christmas card - too pretty to not play along!
She did some inlaid die cutting with glitter paper and the result is amazing!

I kept it simpler - cut the snowflake (Papertrey) and a blue vellum circle (Simon Says die). Stamped the sentiment and little snowflaky adornments and added blue pearls in the center. They don't show up too well on the photo, but they shimmer nicely in real life - used Brilliance platinum ink for them. This ink also works well on vellum.

Here is Elizabeths card:

That star under the sentiment is the center of the snowflake - I am sure you saw this.

Tempted to play? I am sure you are! 
See you at MCV!

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

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
