Merry Christmas

 
 


I wanted to wish all my followers a very peaceful and blessed Christmas and a happy New Year! 

The two cards above were my main Christmas design this year made in various colors.  I used a new nativity die by Taylored Expressions, a snow die by Taylored Expressions, a Peace die from my stash which is currently hiding from me.  I made many other cards along the way, many which have been posted already.

The card below was made for a friend who like teddy bears as much as me with the digital Little Mug Bear by Gerda Steiner Designs.


The card below I made three of for the bosses at work and is very similar to a card I saw on Pintrest from Splitcoast Stampers so I can not take credit for the design but I fell in love with it.


Again Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year and thanks for all the inspiration this past year and your friendships and comments have meant so much to me!

Beautiful cards, Donna! I ended to make 15 cards in a rush and chose different designs and colors using a die as main focal point. They sure are handy these dies.
Wishing you a lovely Christmas. Tomorrow is the big day, in Norway Santa arrives after Christmas dinner so all presents will be opened tomorrow, you'll probably have to wait one more night if I'm not mistaken...

Love all of your cards, Donna, but especially those first ones...that die is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing, and if I don't talk to you again, I wish you all of the blessings of this joyous season! Congratulations on that new grandbaby, too! Hugs...

Hello, Donna! I love all of these cards! You nativity scenes are so peaceful - I really love the word die! Your little bear card is super cute - right up my alley with the mug of cocoa! And your ornament card is gorgeous - might have to CASE this one myself!

Wishing you the happiest of holidays, my friend!

Donna, 3 beautiful cards with all the gleam on each one. I will confess that #1 is my fav, as I love nativity scenes. This is an especially pretty die. So happy you got the brushos, What fun you're in for. Check out the Eileen Godwin videos on Youtube. I think 4 of these are the very best. Make small holes in the top...you can always enlarge if not enough product comes out (but you can't make the holes smaller!) I used a piercing tool to make the holes, then added more as I felt needed. Can't wait to see your first tries. Such fun..and it never turns out the same twice. Happy New Year & TFS. Hugs

Glad to hear you found Eileen's videos. I learned a lot from watching her. The Ranger Spritzer is a fun thing to do also (in one of her videos). I got some new stuff called "nuance"...that I saw Shona Erlenborn use. think it's the same kind of thing...I like the Brusho better than the Color Burst, as I find the crystals easier to control rather than the powder stuff. But both are fun, and get startling results. If I inspired you at all, I'm flattered & delighted!!! Hugs
