10 Christmas Cards
(Lemoncraft DT Reveal)

I am back today, exactly a month before Christmas Eve,
 with a brand new LEMONCRAFT DT reveal!
I decided to get myself in the Christmas mood by using
the 'Christmas Greetings' collection to create lots of Christmas cards!
10 to be exact!!

First is a set of 3 very festive cards using some of the images
from the Vintage Time Labels 4 papers.  I also used the pretty cotton green ribbon
from the ribbon pack as well as badges.

The next set of cards are all decked in white, ivory and gold,
radiating peace and warmth.

I added some gold sheer ribbon, beautiful flowers and sparkly chipboard snowflakes.

The next 2 cards were created using a border snowflake punch from Martha Stewart
and I've tied a plastic tree ornamental snowflake on each.

These last 2 cards are simpler but certainly as sweet.
I fussy cut 2 of the Christmas baubles as well as some of the wreath leaves
from the 'Christmas Greetings' papers and popped them up against
a background stenciled with a little red glitter.

I hope I have put you in the Holiday mood with my creations!
I sure put myself in the mood!!

Warm hugs to you all!!

Let Your Light Shine Canvas
(SOD & SOE November Inspiration)

I'm back today to share with you yet another mixed media canvas,
this time inspired by the beautiful November Inspiration Board

I was inspired to create so many things by this board,
but I finally went down the path of the mauve and golden beige 
from the mushrooms image and the doily shape cupcake plates,
as well as the quote and the overall shabby feel of the pictures.

As you can see, I used die-cut doilies
and lots of flowers in mauve, browns, black and white.

The canvas used is made of fabric on which I added more texture
by stenciling some modeling paste design.  I then sprayed some purple mists
along with white and a touch of gold.

I love using sequins on my projects to add drops of colour
and I dabbed some white paint over all embellishments and papers
to give them my signature white wash style.

I hope you like my canvas!
Please let me know by leaving me a comment - I always love to read you!!

Most Wonderful Time Canvas
(SATW November DT Reveal)

It's the 16th of the month so time for the mid-month reveal
at SCRAP AROUND THE WORLD, so you will see below my project
inspired by the November mood board challenge that went live on the 1st!

This warm and cozy Mood Board was created by 
Tiphanie Barbreau from France

Click HERE to see the project reveal of the first part of the SATW DT

and HERE to see the mid-month reveal that premiered today, including mine!

As soon as I saw this mood board, I had an inspiration to use this pretty house 
border chipboard on a 8x16 canvas and make a beautiful Christmas scene
with a sparkly blue sky, everything covered with a snow white glittery effect.

I glued gold paper on the back of the chipboard to make the windows light up.
I used a Snow Maker pen as well as Stickles to create the snow covered rooftops.

Some microbeads on the background give the illusion of falling snow.

Hope you like my take on the SATW November mood board!
