Non-Traditional Christmas Colors

This fortnight over at Incy Wincy Designs Challenge Blog the theme is Non-traditional Christmas Colors.  We are being sponsored by one of my personal favorites, The Paper Shelter!  The image I used for my card is Fairy Christmas Eve.

I went a wee bit crazy on this card, but was happy with the end result!  I used Pink, burgundy, cream and olive as my non-traditional colors.  I added several dies, flowers, a doily, ribbon, lace, twine, trim, pearls, buttons...just about every imaginable thing.  LOL I made this card, but still I look close and see new things I forgot I added!  haha

Hot Cocoa

One of my co-workers took a class and had her pretty yet simple card at her desk. I saw it and decided I needed to try something similar.  Hers was all done with trees.  I decided to go with a Hot Cocoa die set.  First I folded the 8-1/2" x 4 inch card in thirds, then cut the cup and steam out.  Added the saran wrap behind it, Yes the same stuff you use in the kitchen., then I added the sentiment over it.  Before decorating, I did the inside of the card - just added the candy cane die and the sentiment on the bottom.  Then I added the flowers, twine, ribbon and gems.  I used the candle on the inside to show how it lights up.  I wish I knew how to make it look better in the pictures so you could see how cool it is!


and this is the inside:

Paper Shelter Birthday

The Paper Shelter is having a birthday challenge and blog hop.  For my birthday card I used a precolored image that came in a set I purchased called the Chic Bundle, six images in the set that are  simply stunning!  If you want to purchase JUST this image it's called So Chic!

I added some Glossy Accents around the frame, on the hats, the eye glass, eyes, and lips.  I added some glitter Stickles to the flowers and center of the banner, her necklace and on the 'gem' on her ribbon in her hair.  I used a butterfly punch, flowers, Happy Birthday die, lace, ribbon, and flourish pearls.

Cowgirl Fun

Okay, as much as I love Christmas, I was in the mood for something different...so, I made a Western card.  I used a fun image from Cute As A Button called Cheyenne.  I added a boot that was once a button cover (took the button cover off of the back).  I used some fun digital paper, some burlap, some star shaped brads and some hemp twine.
