Christmas creations


Hi there,

It's very warm for the time of year here and I hope it will be soon more real Autumn weather! I've made some Christmas cards with the clear stamps from Chocolate Baroque and with the gorgeous sheet Pears and Baubles in combination with the Gothic fragments. Also one of my favorites(got lots of CB fav's LOL)
The 2nd one........made with the clear stampsheet 'Joyful Christmas' and on the background a fragment of the Pears and Baubles sheet. All coloured with Derwents soft colour pencils on Basic Grey scrap paper. The poinsettia is decoupaged.


The 3rd one, I've used here the Poinsettia script and again on the background the fragment of the Pears and Baubles. Embossed with pearl EP and sponged with Brilliance inks. The poinsettia is coloured on Basic Grey with Derwent pencils and decoupaged.



And the last one for now, created with the Morris Baubles, again on Basic Grey paper but now embossed with WOW silver emboss.powder and coloured with Tombo markers. On the background you can see a stylished flower from the Dusky Damask sheet.


Well maybe you are a bit inspired with the spirit of Christmas, I am always looking forward to this time of year....not only the Christmas time but also wintertime! Warm and cozy inside the house, candle lights  ......

Creative greet,

  2. The way your backgrounds blend in to the principal images & echo them is remarkable & the last one in particular has me just sitting gazing - the silver trim to the delicate chiffon ribbon picks up the silver embossed outline of those baubles beautifully. It's cold here too - signs of frost now. Have a lovely weekend.
