Elizabeth Craft Designs-Fanciful Bell Ornament

 Hello my crafting friends!

I have another Joyous Christmas card for you today.

I started this one out with a piece of pretty green holly paper from the Holly Jolly Christmas Collection.

2154 Florals 30, 2153 Holly Greenery, 2157 Joyous Ornament-Star, 2156 Joyous Ornament-Bell
C018 Holly Jolly Christmas
The spine has red cord and beads of red, gold and green.

For the star, I just cut out 3 set then cut off the "construction" part as I decided to make it a 
bit of a background decorative die cut.
It was fun making the berry branches and filling the berries with Micro Beads as described by
my team-mate, Rajni.  I only had a wine type color but it still looks great.

For the bell, I cut a mirror gold solid bell and 2 white decorative bell parts to make it look 3D.

I used some mirror gold cardstock dots to decorate.

Thanks for visiting today!

Impression Obsession Color Challenge

 Welcome to the I.O. Color Challenge!

My cute littles were colored with Olo Markers, Stickles added to the water for shine and then Snow Pen with loose glitter added to the shore line, (Snow Pen puffs a little when heat is applied).
I added some pretty rhinestones to the corners.

I hope you enjoyed this "Cute and Simple" card and it inspires you to join in for the color challenge.

Thank you for coming to visit today.
Hope you leave inspired to create!

Joy To The World Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello Crafting friends!
Today is my last day at the craft and hobby show in Las Vegas.  It is very hot!
Luckily everything was in one place and all air conditioned.

So, here is my next Christmas card using the wonderful stamps, dies and papers at Elizabeth Craft Design, designed by Angelica Turner.



Sponged each layer of the pinecones with Oxide ink before gluing the sections on.
I off-set the gold color cardstock with the white for the decorative frame.

Thanks for visiting today!

Impression Obsession Fun

Hello Crafting Friends!
Isn't this just so cute, this little stuffed animal squirrel.  He is sitting against a beautiful toadstool.

My second card today features the Sketchy Inside Out Star (DIE1356),

I used a background piece I made with spray inks, water and Kosher salt (large salt crystals).

My star and letters have a black shadow made with the die cuts as well.
Ten there are the beautiful rhinestones in the corners, I love those things!

Thanks for visiting today!

July Christmas Release at Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello crafting friends!
I absolutely adore this new release from Angelica found at the Elizabeth Craft Design web site today! Look how these beautiful poinsettias go so well in Angelica's barrel from an older collection as well!

I used the Golf Groove Tool to form the flowers and Distress Oxide Ink to sponge color on.  I used some Glossy Accents on the berries and some Prills in the centers of the small flowers with a few Prills in the centers of the center "berries" in the large poinsettias.
