Friday Happiness

Good evening! I have a quick post today, just wanted to share a couple more cards I had gotten done during the week.
Some more vintage look cards, this one the poinsettia paper is Making Memories, and the gold stripe is Graphic 45, as is the rounded top image. I added the reverse cranberry color in a block and matted it with scallop punched gold stripe. I hand drew my stitching lines, then I popped up the tree piece with my Glue Arts UcutIt foam. I placed champagne pearls on the bottoms of the candles on the tree, and also glittered the tree with some cheapie stickles like glitter.


I took a couple berry stems and curled them and tucked them in the card, along with some pretty cranberry seam binding that I topped with a button and twine. I also put on a Petaloo flower I sprayed wtih some light pink and cream misters, and put some fake stickles in the center of the flower. Lastly I added an American Crafts sticker for the greeting popped on more UcutIt foam.
 

I couldn't resist one more card with this pretty santa scene cut from the Graphic 45 paper, I layered it on more Graphic 45 paper, and added this stunning large Petaloo flower I misted with plum and sage. I tucked a sage and green seam binding ribbon bow, topped with a couple jingle bells and a twine button combo.


Again, I used some fake stickles ( got this tube for $1 at the craft store) and outlined the scene and topped santa's beard and hair with it, as well as the middle of the flower. I popped up my American Crafts sticker with some UCutIt foam too.


and finally this pretty fun card, which is totally different!! I also received some Mitten Weather from Cosmo Cricket as a sponsorship with Cricut Circle blog, and because they were so generous, have plenty to make cards with as well. So I created this card with christmas colors and purple!
First I mounted the greeting block on kraft then punched the scallops. I also added gems to the centers of some of the flowers on the tree.



 I added this border strip along the side, and glittered some snowflakes I just drew on the pattern, then I topped them with clear and glitter ( American Crafts) buttons. I put a couple of the chipboard hearts on there and then added seam binding ribbon and bow topped with button misted in browns and light purple.



Lastly today, since I am prescheduling this post as we have two parties to attend tomorrow, I will announce the winners of last weeks blog candy.
