Christmas window with tree

Card number 2. Slight variations to my previous one. Different red designer paper for the window and some framing on the sentiment. And of course I used a, premade and glittered,  foam tree this time rather than the candle.
Because of the tree being foam, I also used some dots to raise up the window to accomodate it.

Christmas Window

Morning! One of my new favourite dies - the window from Memory Box. I also used it's flower box, but I probably should have bought the large one as I'm not so happy with how small this one is. Ahhh, but it's all covered up anyways. :)
Two embossing folders used on this one, the brick wall and the snowfall. Both from Sizzix. Sizzix doesn't label the folder so I'm not really sure what they're called. Actually I looked them up and the snowfall is called dots????? Like many others are, but not the same so I've supplied a link. You get two different folders with one purchase. The snowfall one as I call it, looks to me, like snow is falling and gathering near the bottom.
edSome punched leafs, some foam berries, a gold inked candle, and heat emboss gold sentiment complete the card.

Cup of coco?

Another cute digi stamp from Sliekje. Colored with Prisma pencils and embellished with some stickles for sparkle. Framed with Spellbinders Floral die. And accented with a svg cut poinsetta.

A joyful Christmas in Purple

Thought I would stray from the traditional red and greens for this one. Seedless Purple caught my eye, and so I went with it.

I hand cut out, the twice stamped angel. And in between the wings I also cut out and glued in some white velum. Giving her some more dimension and extra flightfull wings!
The background is a Christmas embossing folder which uses a special tool in order for it to run thru the cuttlebug. If you're interested in it, you can find it in a earlier post labeled "what the heck is it?"
Both stamps come from Joyful Song by Stampers Anonymous and Tim Holtz...
Not sure why I have such a hard time getting a good photo of my cards....the settings from flash or no flash tend to alter the colors on the cards.  But, just so you know, the frame is a nice deep purple and not black. As shown a bit better in the first photo.

Blue Reindeer and Skating Mouse

 Snowflakes embossing folder. Tim Holtz reindeer die with some added enamel accents, and a Michaels sentiment stamped with Tumbled Glass inks, both glue dot onto card.
Love this digi stamp -drawn by Sliekje's  I just love her work. Some of my most favourite digis are done by her, and you'll find quite a few of them on my cards.

Colored with Prisma pencils, snowflake punches embellished with clear beads, and the sentiment was heat embossed. Some stickles for the ice he's skating on.

Christmas tag purple and blue

Background is sprayed with dylusions in blue and purple. Stamped in archival inks and sentiment in white heat embossing poweder. There's a real pinecone to accent, and a few reindeer clothes pegs wired ribbon.

Thinking of you!

Little hard to tell, but the tathered flower is embillished with lots of martha stewart crystal glass. Embossing folder, SSS bird and flourish dies and a little Michaels leaf stamp.

Lots of dimension and lots of embossing on this one.  Congrulated cardboard for the gold background, and all tags stuck on with glue dots.

Noel... edited

Got my new TH die: Just playing around with it and this is my first!
It was a little to obvious when I asked the question on the ATT forum - what box did I use to cut this out - and I didn't want the recipient of the card to think pepperoni pizza when I want them to think Noel! So I covered it up even tho I loved the colors of the pizza box.

Perfect Pearls

Shimmer shimmer shimmer. Nothing like taking matt paper into a shimmery glow.
The greenish background was created using green and yellow dylusions sprays. Then ran thru the cuttlebug with a Christmas embossing folder. Using a water brush filled with TH Festive Berries inks, I colored in JOY. Then I covered it up and sprayed the whole page with a perfect pearls mist (white). The border was done with a bunch, and the poinsetta is a svg cut....also shimmered up with the same perfect pearls mist.
