Five cards in one post, I know what you are thinking... Me getting the Cuttlebug has turned me into a card-making maniac! Truth being told I needed last-minute cards for friends who we are visiting during the holidays and playing with my new toy motivated me to make these. Let's get started!
This is made for CAS-Colours and Sketches Challenge. The challenge was to choose a previous double challenge (containing both inspiration colours and a sketch) and I went for Challenge #40. Very inspirational DT makes in the blog. I used a large snowflake die from PTI I've got as a gift from Sandie along with small snowflakes I've cut with a die I got to borrow from Marika. Thanks friends!! The blue card has shimmer on it and the white snowflakeS are covered with Versamark and heat embossed with WOW clear sparkle embossing powder. Gems and sentiment from SSS finish this card.
This one started with the half snowflake I had as leftovers from the first card. The colors are a bit wild with blue, red AND green but I do like the layout! I love these big snowflakes -I can use them as doilies and everyone knows I love doilies. :) The poinsettia and leaf are gifts I got last year from Loll. I used all the poinsettias I had left in the next 3 cards. They are truly beautiful, thank you Loll for giving these to me!
Another one with Loll's poinsettia and leaf swirl. This time I was able to throW in a doily. ;) I quite like how easy it is to combine die-cuts with patterned paper. I have loads of paper waiting to be used!
Poinsettia, leaf and patterned paper again... This time combined with another large die cut snowflake from PTI. White and red always look very fresh together I think.
My last card has two ornaments cut with a die I bought second hand for 4,50 euros... I think it was a good price for two different ornaments (only one used here). Surprisingly there's a doily and some gems in this card... Not repeating myself am I... But there's a fun heat embossed panel, stamped with an Impression Obsession background stamp. This is a bit too busy for my taste... But it's growing on me.
Well done if you made it all the way here! Thanks for reading this very long and photo-heavy post. I hope you are all enjoying Christmas preparations.
