Christmas ~ Sweet Sunday

This cute challenge gave me the opportunity to use my mini punches and stamp set.  I used dimensionals to pop the squares and the punched out figures.  Added some glitter to the back ground to give it some bling-bling.  Enjoy!

Nativity - Epson Salt Technique

I have been playing with the Epson salt technique and created several sheets in different colors, but the one in white is just beautiful.  The sparkle on the paper and the star burst effect is amazing.  I wish it would show better in the picture so you can appreciate how pretty it looks.  I rotated the sketch from The Paper Players and used the colors from Dynamic Duos.  Enjoy!

Thank you! Happy Thanksgiving

What a perfect combo... Paper Players - gold or silver, Friday Mashup - leaves and thank you, ColourQ - Bermuda Bay, Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Concord Grape, and The Sweet Stop - sketch.  I'm surprised as to how easy the idea came together.  I dry embossed, dabbed colors with a blender, gold heat embossed and punched some leaves.  Finito!  Enjoy!
XOXO Gisela

Happy Thanksgiving !!!

Christmas Blessings

The colors from Dynamic Duos gave me the inspiration to use a new Christmas stamp I had bought.  The sketch is from Freshly Made but I didn't have time to enter my card there.  I heat embossed the Nativity theme thinking it would make it look a bit more finished.  The border is from MS and is one I really like.  Enjoy!
