I made my watercolour background with Distress Oxides & smooching, then a bit more water and dabbing off the excess. I die cut my ornament twice... in white card which I kept as the outline and the second with double sided tape which I added gold glitter to the cutouts and then repostioned them in the white outline. I used a die cut tree landscape from my stash to create a snowy scene and then added a die cut holly branch from which to hang my ornament. I used a deep maroon pink card and to finish stamped and gold heat embossed my sentiment and watercoloured the flower.
I am joining in the challenges at CAS Mix Up December - Anything Goes (stamping, heat embossing, die cuts, watercolouring, glitter), also to CAS Watercolour - Anything Goes, and to Muse; Christmas Visions 90 - Any Holiday Card. Thanks for taking a peek

Power Poppy's 12 Days of Christmas - on Day 5 Julie has made a Holiday Treat Box ... so I was prompted to join in and have made a Treat Bag. Using one sheet of double sided Designer Paper this easy fold bag will be handy for some special treats for a friend. Once folded and glued I added a red folded strip to the top of each side and threaded ribbon to form handles. I painted a wooden holly tag and added my sentiment - stamped and die cut with a stitched tag die, to hand from my handle. To finish I adhered some velcro to close the top. I am also posting to Simon Says Wednesday challenge - Stitch It. Thanks for taking a peek

Today I have a card for four challenges... Penny Black Saturday challenge - Christmas theme, Muse: Christmas Visions #90 - a holiday card, Happy Little Stampers Watercolour challenge for December - optional twist - Christmas, and Simon Says Monday challenge - Christmas/Winter Holidays.I love this PB stamp - Pine and Star, and don't think I've used it this year - so time for something different. I had this watercolour background using Brushos in my stash and thought it looked like a night sky so I stamped the tree three times - twice in two greens of DOX and final stamp in dark green DI as it wasn't showing on the dark background. Then I used white pigment ink to create the snow bank and embossed it in clear, it didn't show too well either so I used the edge of the ink pad again and used white embossing powder - I like this and added some to the tree. I stamped on my sentiment in white and embossed it in white, and the same for the star which I moved from the left on the stamp to the center....I added some silvery gel pen to it too. And finally I spritzed it very lightly with Perfect Pearls for some falling snow and some tiny dots of white gel pen. Thanks for taking a peek

My third card as guest designer for House Mouse and Friends challenge has a Christmas Winter theme .... as I write this it is stinking hot and humid here in Queensland, Australia and the thought of snowy fun at Christmas would be wonderful.
Lastly I stamped my sentiments and used a stitched die to cut them out and arranged some green pine foliage from my leftover stash and added some sparkly snowflakes. It needed a frame so I mounted the panel on red card. I am also posting my card to Muse: Christmas Visions #90 - Festive Holiday card. Thanks for taking a peek
