Christmas Ornament Card In Blue

 Hello,

I would like to share one of my Christmas Cards that I made for this past Holiday Season:



I used Cricut to cut the Ornament shape card.  I used image from  Christmas Cheer set. I attached two cutouts only on the top part and punched a hole to add ribbon for hanging it.  



Then I added a crinkled blue seam binding ribbon and some blue liquid pearls around the edge of the ornament.



I used Cricut Quilted Christmas set image to cut out the sleigh. The Poinsettia are Spellbinders dies and the foliage is Impression Obsession Pine Branches.



I used some mini silver Prills to decorate the centers of the flowers.

Bright Colors Witch Wreath Card

 Hello all,

Welcome to my blog. I would like to share with you my latest make:



I used bright green paper for my base, added bright orange paper, embossed with Darice Harlequin embossing folder and I inked edges with TH Twisted Citron Distress Ink.



 

I created the Jack-o-Lantern wreath with the Cricut cupcake cutouts that I placed to shape a wreath and welded them together before cutting, than added the Witch cutout in the middle of it. Boo is also a Cricut cutout.


I then added some dried moss and little orange flowers that are actually a ribbon that I just cut at each flower connection to get individual flowers out of it.



To finish my card, I added a bunch of tiny bats, also Cricut cutouts that I mounted on thin acetate strips, so that they can look like they are flying around.

Jack-o-lantern in a Window Card

 Hello,

Just wanted to show my latest make:



I created a shadow box to give a dimensional look into the window and Jack-o-lantern peaking through it.



I used crackle paint on the shutters to give it old and creepy look...



I recycled plastic cover for Cricut mat to create illusion of the glass window and egg carton for bricks around the window.



I made a flower container and added some moss and little blue flowers. Behind the window, you can see old looking drapes, made with cheese cloth that I pained with black Dilysions spray and Jack-o-lantern distressed with some black and brown ink.
