Something new!

I was very happy to receive some new Scrapbooking material for Christmas. Of course, I had to try it out already.
First of all I got a "Birthday" embossing folder. As there are a couple of birthdays coming up in January I made a birthday card using the new staff.

New arrival in Oz!

My grandcousin in Australia welcomed a son a few days before Christmas. Of course, I had to make a baby card for him too.

Meanwhile, I use stamps from the Stampin'up set "Zoo Babies" for nearly every baby card.

Merry Christmas from me to you!

With this christmas card symbolising my little family I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and some peaceful days with your loved ones.

Once again, I used the "all in the family" stamp set from Stampin'up.

Christmas symbols!

A clean and simple card where I used 3 different washi tapes and christmas symbols.

Christmas in white and blue!

Another of my creations inspired by surfing Pinterest. I think it is one of my best Christmas cards this year. The dark blue and white contrast is beautiful!

Three ornaments!

I didn't make many cards using my ornament die cuts, but this is one of it. And i like it. It is clean and simple.

Under the mistletoe!

I saw a similar card on Pinterest and I liked the idea of using buttons and brads for the mistletoes.

Die cut snowflakes

It doesn't look like it on the picture but I punched out the snowflakes from the white paper and put grey paper in the background and put a rhinestone in the middle of each snowflake. The sentiment is also stamped in grey.

Christmas Landscape

First, I bought a very nice christmas paper and then I didn't know how to use it.
So I created a Christmas landscape:

Fish also celebrate Christmas!

I totally love the "fishin' around" stamp from Stampin'up. Therefore, I thought about a way to use it for a christmas card, and voilá 2 little stamps from Depot suit perfectly for the fish bowl.

The white ribbon I used under the image shimmers very bright in order to recognise it is actually a white ribbon.

Christmas: white and one other color!

This is another creation where I used my Elizabeth Crafts Design snowflake die cut and their Silk Microfine Glitter.

Anything but a Christmas Card!

On Pinterest I got inspired using my Stampin'up set "make a cake" more often.

I used a very nice paper with glossy shamrocks for this birthday card and found the perfect ribbon to match.

Washi Tape Christmas Tree

For this card I got inspired by "Two Peas in a bucket" which I saw on Pinterest.
I liked the idea that the chain of lights was indicated by stitches. For the ornaments I used red brads. The candles, angel and presents are other stamps from the bunch I bought at Depot.

In the end this card is a little bit overloaded.

Snowflakes, snowflakes, snowflakes!

I bought a bunch of mini stamps from Depot. It includes a nice stamp of a snowflake which I used to create the following card. I added a few rhinestones to it. Unfortunately, you can hardly see them on the picture. The blue ribbon I used matches perfectly with the blue ink!

December Birthday boys, Part 2!

My best friend is turning a year older tomorrow. As I don't see him in person, I made him this birthday card and sent it by postal mail, hoping it arrives tomorrow.
I used "Fishin' around" from Stampin'up as my friend and his family got a fish bowl a couple of weeks ago. So I thought that suits. The party hats and the cake was an idea from Heather Klump I saw on Pinterest.

Christkind ornament!

I have such a cute stamp with a Christkind/angel which I haven't used very much so far.
So I got thinking of a way to use it best. 
I like the outcome! It is one of my favorite Christmas cards I made this year!

White on white!

Again, I used my die cut snowflakes and the Microfine Glitter from Elizabeth Craft Designs to design this card.  I was inspired by a card from Sherry Eckblad.

I love the glitter effect! More and more, I like the creating of CAS cards.

There are also some other occasions to celebrate in December except of Christmas. Two friends of mine are celebrating their birthdays on the same day and so I to find some time to make them a birthday card. This is the first card:

Oh, Tannenbaum!

In Austria, one of the most famous christmas songs is "Oh, Tannenbaum",
This title suits perfectly to this christmas card:

I used the embossing diffuser to receive a plane oval to place the ribbon christmas tree. I love the brown and green composition!

Fabric Birthday Wishes!

It was time again to use my sewing machine to create some cards.
I didn't use any glue this time and sewed everything on the card stock.
I like how the different shades of pink match so perfectly!

Snow Globe Christkind!

Here in Austria kids don't believe in Santa Claus but in the Christkind which lays the presents under the christmas tree on the evening of December 24.
With my Christkind stamp I created some kind of snow globe but instead of snow I used silver stars in the water.

Here comes ... the Penguin!

In my late pregnancy me and my mother crochetted some animals. She said they would be the first stuffed toys she can play with.
Among all animals in the book I chose the penguin as I loved his big nose and the big eyes.

Which hat belongs to Santa?

On Pinterest I saw a similar card by Wendy Frederick and I tried to copy it with my suppliers.

I used my santa hat stamp and used white Microfine Glitter for the brim.
The Santa with the Reindeer motive on the bottom is a roll stamp from Eduscho.

Shining Ornament!

The third card we made in our Christmas Card Workshop early November was this card:

Again, we used the heat embossing technique to create the shiny layer on the ornament. The sentiment is also the result of the heat embossing technique.

I will write the supplies for heat embossing on my Christmas wish list. I want to use it at home too!

I already checked out the first card.
