:: Christmas Cards for Wild Orchid Crafts ::

Today I have two cards created for Wild Orchid Crafts. I really like to play with different colors and create in not so traditional colors for Christmas cards.

For this card I used a vintage style image from Tim Holtz. I played with different shades of blue on my flowers and a little bit of green and white.

To get even more wintery feeling I added some Gesso and also some fake snow.

I really love the Trellis Roses! Gorgeous!

For my next card I also used a image from Tim Holtz but this time I went a little bit bolder with my colors! I think gold makes a card really cool and looking a bit fancy!

You find my supplies list with all different flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts at the end of this post. 

Besides all pretty flowers I used a die from Rox stamps, gold branches from 13arts, gold lace from Tresors de luxe.

My Wild Orchid Crafts supplies list:
Mixed Blue Tone Mulberry paper Trellis Roses - MKX-096

:: Over The Top Card ::

I really admire when artists make cards in this style so I wanted to try it myself. It was really fun to add lots of different elements besides flowers. 
I used the same base for both cards with papers from Maja Design. 

For this card I used Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, chipboard from Snipart, stickers from October Afternoon and Papirdesign. The die that I made my die-cut with is from Wish.

The cute badge is from Lemoncraft. I also used finds from my boxes as pine cones, twine and ribbon.

For this card I used a heart die from Marianne Design. I also used a very cute ribbon made from white tissue paper from Melissa Frances. 
I used Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and almost the same embellishments as the first card.

:: Three very different Christmas Cards ::

First a tall card with layers of paper and die-cuts.
I used paper from Maja Design, Pion Design and dies from Spellbinders and Tim Holtz.

Here I created a fun shaker card with snow behin the window. Paper from Bo Bunny and Lawn Fawn. Stickers from October Afternoon and my images are colored with my Copics.

On my last card for today, yes it will be more Christmas Cards soon :) I used different stickers from October Afteroon. I used 3d foam behind them to get more 3d effect.

:: Clearly Besotted Reindeers ::

Today I have two Christmas cards with my new Reindeers from Clearly Besotted and I love them! 
For my first card I made a scene inspired by Keren Baker card. Super cute!

 I used paper from Bo Bunny and a stitched Square die from Lawn Fawn for my background.

The Clearly Besotted images is called Let´s Prance and I used both stamps and dies. The Christmas TRees are from Mama Elepahand Reindeer Games and the star from Lawn Fawn Cheery Christmas.
Some of the parts are mounted with foamtape to get more 3d effect.

My next card is one of my favorites this year! I´m only sad that I have already after using the bird die only one time lost it! It´s so tiny and it´s no we´re to find! 
I used paper from October Afternoon called Very Merry Wrappe the Presents. The scalloped frame is from Die-Namics and called Stitched Rectangle Scalloped Frames. From Lawn Fawn I used Birch Trees, Stitched Hillside Borders, Snowy Backdrop, A Birdie Told Me set. The sentiment is from The Greeting Farm Dashing stamp set. And of course I used the super cute Clearly Besotted Let´s Prance stamp and die set. I hope you like my dear Deers :)

:: White Poinsettia Christmas Card ::

Can you belive it´s already first of December?! I really need to step it up with my Christmas Card making! I have a lots of ideas that I still want to try out and try to create!

Time for a Christmas Card with a little bit more embellishments on! I really love the kind of Foamiran they have at Wild Orchid Crafts! I have tried three different brands and this is by far the best! For my Poinsettia I used a die from Kaisercraft called Layered Poinsettia. The die is a bit narrow in the center so you need to be very careful when you twist the foam.
I used some dies from Wish for my framing and also one Punch around the page from Martha Stewart. The sentiment stamp is from Penny Black called Yultide Wishes.

This is my list of WOC supplies:

:: More Christmas Cards ::

Today I have two more Christmas cards with Reindeers to show you.
My first card is created with almost all supplies from Lawn Fawn. Only the scalloped frame is from another brand. The frame is a Die-namics die. 

I started off with a backdrop die called Snowy backdrop. Then I used the Forest border and the Stitched Hillside border. All images and sentiments are from the stamp and die set called Cheery Christmas.
All of them colored with my Copics.

For my next card I used the very cute Reindeers from Mama Elephant. I used my Misti and arrenged them in a shape of a tree. I used my ruler to make the tree behind them and colored it all with my Copics. The papers on this card is from Lawn Fawn.

:: Three Reindeer Cards ::

Today I have three cards yo show you inspired by a K Werner card. This year I´m all about Reindeers! I can´t stop buying more stamps and dies with Reindeers! I have become completely bonkers! The Reindeer stamps is from The Greeting Farm. I have colored with my Copics.

I created the backgrounds with Distress Ink pads and a blending tool. On some of the cards I made some ghost stamping and I also sprinkled water over the background to get the snow effect. To get the snow slope I masked with a paper. All Reindeers was also masked before I started with the background. So first stamped with black and then masked.

My sentiment stamps are from Mama Elephant and called Season´s Greetings. I used black Embossing powder for the words. The size of my cards is 10,5x21,5 cm.

:: Altered Glass Bottle ::

 I found a fun challenge over at Scraphuset and this is my project made for the all black challenge.
It´s a bif difficult to take photos of this kind of project so I hope you can see all textures and different shapes. I started with a flee market find - a glass bottle for some kind of liquor.

I painted the whole bottle with white gesso and on some areas I used crackle paste and a brick stencil.

I made several different shapes with paperclay. When it all was dry I glued them to the bottle. I also added both regular size and mini artstones from Prima.

 When it was dry I added a layer of black acrylic paint.

Last I added Prima Wax with my fingertips.
