7 Months Till Christmas with Clearly Besotted

It's that time again - the 24th of the month :)

As usual we are sharing some Christmas Card inspiration over at Operation Skriv Hjem (Danish Operation Write Home). 

Once in a while I love to work with Kraft cardstock. It's more ruff and nature like, if you know what I mean. 

This is my card...


For this card I have actually used 3 different Clearly Besotted stamp sets.

Two older sets - one called "Christmas Poinsettia" and the other "Little Pudding".
And one newer set called "Say It's Christmas" where the sentiment is from.



Have a splendid day, 
Pia

8 Months Till Christmas with Altenew

It's the 24th of  April and there is now 8 months till Christmas. 

It's spring time and lots of young people are celebrating stepping into the grown-up world. Hubby and I are this Friday joining in the celebration of the son of a couple of dear friends of ours.

As usual we are sharing some Christmas Card inspiration over at Operation Skriv Hjem (Danish Operation Write Home). 

This is my card...


Again I have used the layering stampset from Altenew - this time just the bells stamps. 

The "Golden Glitz" ink from Delicata is one of my favorites. It's so golden and shimmering!


The sentiment is heat embossed with Ranger Gold embossing powder. When using my Powder Tool from EK Success I get a perfect result 99% of the time. Love my Powder Tool!

Have a great day. 
Hugs Pia

Hexagon bonanza with Lawn Fawn Backdrop


This is what you make with all the leftover bits and pieces from a previous project - You make a bunch of hexagon cards :)


I just love....read LURVE....this backdrop die from Lawn Fawn which makes the stitched woodgrain pattern. 


The sentiments on these card are Danish and here above it means Congrats / Congratulations. 


To add a little interest I have used Nuvo Crystal Drops to make enamel dots with. 

I have though learned one thing - let the Nuvo drops dry for at least 48 hours before putting them in acetate bags. And most importantly - don't let then be stacked up without acetate cover or the drops will stick to the back of the other card. 


If you are wondering about all the colours, I can reveal there are leftovers from a rainbow project.

I took a class with Online Card Classes called "Rainbow Maker". You can see my two original projects HERE and HERE


This sentiment means Hugs in English. Everyone needs a hug once in a while, right!


There we go.... a bunch of cards with leftovers from another project. So good to use up the pieces instead of just throwing them in the bin. 

Have a splendid day :)
Pia
