Hello my friends!!!
One ornament on two cards,same conception but different color's .
This card is really perfect for mass production.Easy to make in a couple minutes with minimum effort.
On my first card I stamped few different snowflakes with 4 different ink color's.With Nellie's Choice ornament die i cut gold card stock and blue paper.To make look  like it's hanging I add some gold thread  and put on top gold stripe(perfect place to hide a double sided tape :) )

Second card is all the same,accept I use one ink color (Frayed burlap distress ink).

With my first card I participate -CUPCAKE INSPIRATION--challenge 338

Gold,vellum,white card

Heloo my friends!!!
I think I am addicted to gold embossing on vellum.If you are looking through my blog ,you will see lots of my cards are made with vellum,or with gold embossing...I just can't help myself.
I embossed jingle bells,sentiment and the snowflakes(Viva decor stamp set "Christmas decoration and embellishments"),and cut out the bells .The tag was embossed with dot's embossing folder and distressed with Frayed burlap distress ink.To give dimension I add a gold thread,and on the top off ribbon.
All that I lay on a card 12cmx12cm.

Well,last post for today and it's birthday card.Quick and simply card without stamping.
Few mounts ago I get theses balloon dies from Clearly Besotted and didn't get a chance to use yet.So I decide to use them today.The birthday die is also from Clearly Besotted and I cut it in two color's and so the pink color(under the purple)look like a shadow..I cut balloons from different pattern paper and arrange it.

Blue snowflakes

Hello my friends!!!!
I love turquoise-blue color,also my oldest daughter,and when I so FUSION {Blue Christmas} and the color that is provide I had to participate.My card is clean,simple and easy to make.
I cut the main panel with Paper Smooches snowflakes dies the snowflakes.Under I lay turquoise paper so it peaks through,and add just a little silver glitter for the sparkling effect.I stamped the sentiment  in blue,and for the last touch I add some sequins.


Hello my friends!!!
This weekend is my finally my crafty weekend and I started with this adorable  digital images from Di's digi stamps Teds Christmas and Boozy Christmas B&W...LOVE THEM..
I really love the images,so I keep  the cards simply.At the both cards I did everything the same.

I color them with watercolor pencils,and create some scene.On the top one,I add a few gift's  and lay the image on beautiful designer paper from Crelando.Add  a gold polka dot ribbon with bow,and snowflakes(Paper Smooches dies) and embossed the sentiment on vellum with gold embossind powder.

This card is the almost the same as the top one,only here I add a tree and a couple gift's.Lay the main panel on a green paper a little bit off ,just for the interesting.Put all together on a light green card stock and add a few red sequins.The sentiment is Croatian and I embossed it on a vellum.And finally touch are two snowflakes.

Hello my friends!!!
It's getting colder and colder every day,here in Croatia. In the morning temperature is going under the 0 degrees.It's a matter of time when the first snowflakes are going to fall,and my youngest one(she is 3 and half years) just can't wait.Last year we build our first snowman together,she was so exited and thrill, and that gives me inspiration for this card and to use these cute digital stamp from Di's digital stamps.
I colored the image with watercolor Faber Castel pencils and cut with circle die to make round panel .Blue card stock is from Crelando  and I stamp some snowflakes with blue ink to make ton on ton background.From the vellum I cut snowflakes with Paper Smooches snowflakes die( I LOVE IT) and put randomly around the main panel.On the center of the snowflakes I add some rhinestones so that they can sparkle a little bit.Under the circle panel I cut from vellum a banner and wrote with silver stickers Happy 18. and cut word birthday with Clearly Besotted die.I cut it three times to get some dimension,and the first time is from vellum and it's a little bit off,so it looks like a shadow.

Hello my friends!!!
Gold embossing on vellum is one of my favorite technique,and  this challenge is perfect for this technique.I stamped and gold embossed floweres,stamp set from my local hobby store,and color them on the back side with Stabilo pens.Cut out the flowers and arrange them in oval shape.In the midle of the shape I put gold letter stickers for the word Happy,and die word birthday (Clearly Besotted) out of gold card stock.For final touch I add some sequins.

Hello my friends!!!
What a cute Digi stamp...LOVE IT..This Digi stamp is from GSD CHALLENGE---November's Challenge
Just couldn't resist to participate this challenge with such an adorable image.And it's my  first time.I color the image with Faber Castell color pencils and blend it with baby oil.For the background I did a lots of embossing.First I inked the forest with green ink and stencil.With embossing pen I trace the edge's of the trees and embossed with transparent glitter embossing powder.And than happens a little mistake...the powder doesn't cover the trace from the pen,and it's visible,but I can always said it's the shadow :))),it's suppose to be like that.
Than I embossed the hill's also,but with white powder,and the sentiment with gold on a vellum.
I embossed the falling snowflakes too,but under the vellum I make the bigger for some fun.
Last touch on my card is the white snowflakes from Paper Smooches die snowflake set.


Hello my friends!!!
Early morning here in Croatia(6,54) and I couldn't wait to write and publish this post.I am so happy :) ,I think  I finally  manage to make a clean and simple card...jeeeeee...

I completely forgot about these beautiful  embossing folder from Sizzix.Going through my stash I just bumped  on it and concluded this is perfect for card I want to make.
To make it complete I add some red half pearls on the brunch,embossed with transparent glitter embossing powder a few snowflakes and embossed the red sentiment(Viva decor).And the last detail is red card stock under the main panel to make a red frame.
