Christmas Cards

‘Hi! Happy Saturday!!! Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

I will start enjoying mine in a few hours, after I’m done with cleaning the house. I so not like cleaning. It might come as a chock, but I do prefer making cards. :)

Riddersholm Design has released new fabulous winter papers A Christmas Story that comes both in full size and as 6x6 paper pad. I’m so happy about the new paper pads, I like the smaller size patterns when making cards. The colors of this new line is AMAZING! Check it out!

I so love the colors and the soft patterns tone in tone. The flower is a white Ink It Cherry Blosson that I colored with a mix of Aged Mahogany and Vintage Photo and water (and some glitter for the shine!). I experimented until the tone was right to go with the paper. Once happy with it I saved the mist for future use on coming projects with these papers and flowers.

The stamps are from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps. The sentiment is called Gift of the Season and the hexagon snowflake (which is a favorite of mine!) is from the Clearly Beautiful Ornament Set.

I used this lovely sketch from Try Stampin’ On Tuesday.

Next card is using the same paper pad as the first one. Couldn’t put it down, once I started… :)

Ljus 1

The stamp is a new red rubber release from Prickley Pear. They will be up shortly in the web shop.

I played some with stickles and glossy accents to make the light and berries pop.

For this card I used Freshly Made Sketches #53. It’s a great one!

I’m also blogging these cards over at The Prickley Pear Blog. I’m stepping down after three years and it feels a little strange. I’ll have my last blog post with PPRS up on Monday.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!
