Christmas ornaments


I made a card for the Winnie & Walter Playdate #4. I really wanted to make a christmas card because of the color theme and inspirational pictures but I don't have any W&W christmas themed stamps. So I used some ornament die cuts and added the great starburst shapes from W&W for the background. I think it turned out great. I love the stamps from the sequins stamp set, they are such a good accent to add on any background. I embossed them with white pearl embossing powder and used distress ink for the background. I cut the ornaments from vellum, glitter paper and the red ones I colored with distress ink and added glossy accent on top.


I've made a couple of more cards for the challenge that I'll blog when i have time to take pictures. 

Am I the only one who is looking forward to putting up some christmas decorations? I think I'll start decorating next weekend. It's been a few years since we were spending christmas at home and I haven't really felt like putting much effort in the decorations when we weren't going to be at home to enjoy it. This year I'll go all in. At least that is the plan ;)
