Happy Holidays card

Hello !

Yesterday, I showed you a card made with my new Craft smith paper pad. Today I give you a card made with the Ice Crystal pad (the same I used for my wood box) :


The trees and the stamp came from the same set Christmas tree by Hampton Art. This set comes with 3 different stamps for the tree, but as my papers had already a design, I didn't used them.
The trees are on foam adhesives to create dimension to the card.

If you came for the first time on my blog, please be aware that a giveaway is now running here. You just to comment on my Christmas and follow my blog to enter this giveaway. Check my first post about it for rules and picture of the prize !

Thank you for your time, I wish you a very good day, and see you tomorrow...

Merry Little Winter card

I've been a bad girl... Once again I couldn't resist a good deal and I bought another Christmas paper pad... Shame on me for being this weak ! But hey ! I used it right away on a card !

It's a paper only card, from the pad by Craft Smith. The deal was unbeatable (and irresistible): $4.60 instead of $19.99. Love my coupons ! Really like the design of this paper pad too. You will see at least another card from it.



What do you think of this one ? Let me know in the comment section, and if you're a follower, you will enter my giveaway to win a fantastic prize !

Have a great day and see you tomorrow for another Christmas card...

Embossed Merry Christmas card

Hi there !

It's day #15 of my 30 cards before Christmas event ! We are halfway from the end of the giveaway, so you really need to start commenting if you didn't, because commenting  on my cards (and being a follower) is how you can enter the giveaway !
Take a good look at today's card before saying something about it...



I embossed the central frame with the Merry Christmas and Vintage Holidays folder by Sizzix, then gently applied Firebrick distress ink over the embossed title.
I also applied the red ink on the poinsettias, and some Walnut Stain on the edges of the DCWV papers.

It's not a fancy card, but I do like the embossing effect on this one.
I will came back with a card made with Graphic45 papers tomorrow, so I'm excepting to see you tomorrow too !

Thank you for your time, have a great Sunday !

Plaid deer Christmas card

Another day, another card...

Back to CAS for a white card as a base, and some DCWV papers with Little B dies...


The sentiment was hand cut from one of the sheet of the Christmas Plaid stack by DCWV, and the dies were cut with the Christmas Holidays set by Little B. Two small snowflakes came from a small punch.

Having a white background is not my usual, I'm still thinking something is missing ! Well, I will get back to myself tomorrow ! But if you like this card, please let me know !

You can review all the cards I have made so far on this page, and learn more about my giveaway on this one. Did you know I've been doing this 30 something since 2013 now ? How can I come with more Christmas ideas ? You can check each year's projects by clicking on the top tab.

Tim Holtz style Christmas card

Hello there !

I found some Alterations Christmas embossing folder not long ago at Tuesday Morning, with Tim's Found relatives cards, and it was about time to use it ! Here is what I created :


I cut scrap of papers to match the pattern of the folder, and used the Letterpress technique to create the background. If you don't know this technique, it's super simple. You ink your embossing folder on the front side (just the raised design) before running it with the paper in your machine (I used my Big Shot for that). The ink I used there was of course the Walnut Stain distress ink...

Yuo know my love for fussy cutting, and that's what I did with one of the relatives card... A wooden sentiment distressed with ink and the card was done... I wish my sewing machine was out of its box, I would have added some stitches between the different papers.

Thank you for stopping by today. Please let me know what you are thinking of my cards so far. Each card's comment will earn you an entry in my giveaway...

Have a great day !

Rita Barakat's fairy for a Christmas card

Well... I'm up with some creativity today, inspired by my friend Rita Barakat and her stickers. Can you spot the one I used ?


This sticker is a journaling tape decorated with one of her fairies. I draw around the sticker to create a wider decor on my card, and paint all with watercolors.

Papers used on this card are from the October Afternoon kit I used before, and sentiment is written with black epoxy alphas by Sticko.

I hope you like this one of a kind Christmas card ! I'm so glad you stopped by today ! May I have the pleasure to see you tomorrow too ?

Don't forget about the giveaway (comment and follow to enter) and have a great day...
