Inspired by the ...

Sparkly Joy

Still using my die cuts from LaVon ...

I also embossed the sentiment with sparkle embossing powder.

Merry Christmas

I was given some lovely sparkly die cuts by LaVon ... and very timely, to go with the current Fusion Card Challenge

And a close-up of the glitter reindeer ...

I was inspired by the glittery reindeer in the green branches.

Tweetest Christmas

The LOTV (Lili of the Valley) stamps are just the cutest ... love their trio sets. I had been wondering how to incorporate the 3 when I spotted the Freshly Made Sketch - perfect fit.

I white embossed half the background with the Hero Arts Raindrop background stamp. I created the sentiment circle with words from the new Hero Arts Happy Merry Messages set and drew the outline and holly to match the other circles.

Love, Joy & Peace Dove

My new Penny Black supplies arrived this week. I ordered both the dove die and the stamp set which has the same lovely artistic dove. So I have made 3 cards following the same basic layout ... one with the stamp, one with the die, and one with the negative of the die.

First with the stamp ... embossed in white ...

then the die with some Frosted Lace Stickles ...

and lastly, the negative of the die. I changed to watercolour, and decided that it was better without the magical background ...

Which one do you prefer?
