Hello our blog friends. This time I would like to show you my first Christmas Card. I received the Christmas paper collections a long time ago. Couldn’t wait to use them! Finally I can say – the season for the Christmas cards has started ! 🙂 Here is my first proposal :

Christmas Card

I cut out the Santa Claus from the “I wish – Ephemera” paper sheet, then created the background by adding layers one by one. Chipboard, paper flowers, some soft pom-poms and little bells.

Do you feel this magical atmosphere of Christmas here  ? I do 🙂 Hope I will inspire some of you to  creating the Christmas cards, decorations etc. a little bit earlier. Hope this card is a good sign and I will find time to create more projects like this. Hugs, Paulina

I-wish-P

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

May your Christmas be filled with lots of happiness, peace and love!

Mary here with you today and I have a layout to share with you. I used papers from the ”I Wish” collection which matched perfectly the beautiful photo I found on Pinterest. Is there anyone who doesn’t believe on Santa? I still believe… and this photo was just perfect for a Christmasy post. But, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

Close up 1

For my background, I used the ”I wish you a Happy Holiday” paper and I made the layers behide my photo with torn papers from the ”I wish we will deck the halls”, the ”I wish for a holly jolly Christmas”. I also placed some pieces from an old book and two photos from the ”I wish – Ephemera”.

I applied on the center of my paper white gesso and then I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Before it gets dried I heat embossed it with ”Purely White” embossing powder. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists, ”Rudolph’s Nose Red” and ”Bayou Boogie Gold” with some water to make a watercolor effect. I also added some splatters with 13arts white splash ink.

Close up 3

I heat embossed the frame and the floral chipboards with ”Desert Moon Copper Pine”, the words and the dotted baubble chippies with ”King Midas Gold” Lindy’s embossing powders. All the chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing. The metal embellishments are ”Scrap Unlimited”.

As a final touch, I made some splatters with white splash ink and when dried I added some bronze microbeads.

Layout

Hello my friends and happy Sunday to all!!!

Mary here with you today to share my latest layout featuring the beautiful Christmasy ”I Wish” collection.

When I found that beautiful photo on Pinterest, I though it is time to design a Christmas layout. After all it’s that time of year, right?

But, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

Photo 1

For my background, I used the ”I wish you a Merry Christmas” paper and behind my photo I placed a die cut doily made from the ”I wish for a holly jolly Christmas” paper.

Photo 2

First, I gave my paper a coat of clear gesso and then I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists, ”Rudolph’s Nose Red” and ”Silent Night Silver” with some water to make a watercolor effect. I also added some splatters with ”Lucky Shamrock Green” and ”Midnight Randezvous Raven”.

Photo 3

I heat embossed the floral chipboards with ”Midnight Gold”, the square frame and the title with ”Terra Cotta Rust” Lindy’s embossing powders. The little pieces of the circle lace panel were also heat embossed with ”Scotch Broom Yellow”. All the chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing.

Photo 4

As a final touch, I made some splatters with white splash ink and when dried I added some bronze microbeads.
