:: My first card at the new year ::

I´m finally back with a new post here after a long Christmas break!
I decided to give my self a challenge to get mu mojo starting again. The challenge was to only use what I could find on my desk! I had some scrap, bits and pieces from my last Christmas cards. Not my proudest moment ;) but hey I managed to get together a card and finished my challenge!

 I used a die from Marianne Design called Christmas Tree. I´m not sure were the chipboard is from. It was already painted red and not in it´s package.

 The Poinsettia is handmade by me and I used Foamiran from Woc. The snowflakes are from Snipart.

 All flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. I sprinkled a lot of fake snow on the card to get a sparkly and snowy feeling. My papers are from Melissa Frances and Maja Design. 
It feels good to have already started my Christmas cards for 2018 :)

:: One Last Holiday Card for Wild Orchid Crafts ::

I totally forgot that I still had one more Holiday Card to show you! This card is created as my last project for  Wild Orchid Crafts. Three month has passed fast and I have enjoyed creating with all beautiful flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts!

My card today is created with bits and pieces all layered up to a very cute and festive Holiday card!

The cute image is a sticker from Melissa Frances Home for the holidays. The striped paper is from Echo Park. The stars are from Pink Paislee and called Luxe Stars. The tags called Parcel Tags are from Pink Paislee City Sidewalks. To get some snow effect I used Chunky white embossing enamel from Stampendous.

I used two of my handmade Poinsettias made with white Foamiran and colored with red dry chalk. On some of the flowers I added glitter for extra sparkle.

Thank you Wild Orchid Crafts for letting me inspire with all beautiful supplies!

In two days it´s Julafton here in Sweden and we´re celebrate on the 24th of December. I hope all my Christmas cards has arrived to there receivers. This is 2017 last two Christmas cards!
My first one is alift from a Amy Yang card. I really fell in love with her cute card and wanted to make a similar card. 

I used the Deer Love die from Die-namics in white and silver. I also gave him/her some rosy cheeks.

The frame is made with Lanw fawn Stiched Rectangle Large and I also used the Stiched Hillside die from Lawn Fawn. For my background I used Lawn Fawn Snow Cool Stamp Set with white Embossing powder. To get a nice wintery look I added faux snow.

For my snowflakes I used snowflake dies from Penny Black, Darice, Memory Box and Martha Stewart. The large Rhinestones I found at Wish.

 A really clean and simple card with a funny Santa!

:: Christmas Cards For All The Teachers 2017 ::

Today I have some cards to show you created for my sons teachers. I have been inspired by several cards from the team at My Favorite Things.

I made some of the cards with blue sky and some with brown sky.

Some of the reindeerhorn are in gold metallic paper and some are brown. 

To get some shades on the Reindeers I used a blender and Distress mini pads in Walnut Stain.
I also added some white dots and some of The reindeers got a red nose.

Here are my supplies list:
My Favorite Things Die-Namics Deer Love
Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders
Lawn Fawn Snowy Backdrop
Mama Elephant Merry Christmas Wishes
Mama Elephant Season´s Greetings
Distress Ink Mini Pad Walnut Stain
Red Beads Papirdesign
White Sharpie

It´s really boaring to make all the same so I changed colors, sentiments a bit on my cards. And to get good prints I used my Misti before I glued the snowy hills to my base.

:: 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.
