Christmas ornaments

IMG_9551

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 ;)

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
