Winter Card

Good afternoon and a very happy Saturday to everyone. I know this is a very hectic weekend for all of us, but I decided to take some time and escape into MY domain (my craft room). I wanted to make a winter card featuring my new stamps from the Little Moscow collection. The beautiful K&Company papers were a gift from a sweet friend. The images are colored with copics and the little clouds are by Memory Box. The background trees are Stampscapes to which I added glue and glitter.

Thank you for taking the time to visit and wishing you all A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!! Hugs, Christina

Another Christmas Chocolate Card

Good Morning to all my lovely blogging friends! Hope you are enjoying a fabulous weekend....the snow is falling outside and it's lookin' a lot like Christmas! Showing you another Christmas Treat Card featuring a lovely Tilda from the Nativity Collection. I love the glittery trees which I achieved by stamping the image on card stock with a Archival Brilliance Moonlight White inkpad, waiting for it to dry and then applying glue all over (I used Tombo Acqua liquid glue) and adding glitter. The cute Tilda is colored with copics. The lace trim is a Magnolia die. Here is the inside and back of the card:

Altered Cigar Box

Good morning to all my lovely blogging friends! Here is my first attempt at altering a cigar box.....totally botched it, tore off the papers and started over! This is the end result....not the best, but it's a learning experience. Thank you to my friend Dena for giving me some tips!!!! The papers are from from K&Company, but the gorgeous Santa is from the Kaisercraft St. Nicholas collection. The poinsettia and tree line dies are Magnolia and the star is from Memory Box. I was not able to cover the edges....tried gesso and gold paint, but due to the glossy surface, it would not stick! Would love to hear from you if you have any ideas you'd like to share with me.

I lined the inside of the box with K&Company papers, as well as the sides. Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Hugs!

Gift Bag featuring Noel Tilda

Good evening to all my friends and visitors! I adore gift bags and this is the first Christmas bag I made..........plan on making a few more! This bag features the darling Noel Tilda. As you can see, I added a couple of Tim Holtz dies. The back of the bag features a tree and Santa with his reindeer, a die by Impression Obsession.
