Punches...

As you probably know, I love to make tags. For this reason, some years ago I bought a tag punch to make things easier.
I actually love to make tags in different sizes so I often find myself cutting them with scissors but the new challenge at Christmas Card Challenges was the perfect starting point to make my old punch into good use.

Last week I bought a new paper for my Copic markers and I wanted to try it.
Even if it's quite thick, it worked perfectly in my printer and I managed to create these lovely tags:
I may seem a little boring, since I used this image from DigiStamp Boutique only a few weeks ago for a card, but I love it so much that I wnated to make something else with it.
They are Cute Nativity Kids and I loved the fact that I could print, punch and color my tags without effort!

Don't miss my fellow DT members' creations, have a look at their blogs:

What a Fun!

This time I've had a great fun creating my card for Christmas Card Challenges!

The theme is Non-Traditional Christmas images and here's my creation:
Aren't they cute?
I've used a stamp from There She Goes and I must admit that the idea to hang the two moneys together came from a card I saw a while ago somewhere (I'm sorry but I didn't remember where or who!). I decided to hang them to a holly branch, a part of a set of an old set of stamps.
The papers is from an old pad from Papermania. I simply added some red details and, of course, a little bow on one of the monkey's tails!

I think I'll make a few more...

This challenge sounds really funny! Have a look at all the other creations from the DT and be inspired to think of something less traditional!

Christmas Trees.

Although I love my Christmas Tree and trees in general, I find it difficult to use them as images for my cards. They are never my first choice when I think of a Christmas card, even if I adore the fact that, besides the green, I can add touches of colors and glitter in the balls or lights.

But this week I had to make something with a Christmas tree for my DT work at Christmas Card Challenges. The theme is EVERGREEN and this is my creation:

I love to make tags and this Christmas Tree from Broken Box Stock (it is available in a set of 4 Christmas themed images, here in black and white and here colored) was just perfect for what I had in mind.
It seems that I've had these tags forever: I think I bought them at Ikea many years ago and I've never managed to make something with them but they were perfect for the country look I had in mind.
I added stripes of paper from Rayher and some bling with a couple of rhinestones and glitter on the trees.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what my fellow DT members have created with evergreen!

It's Sketch Time at Christmas Card Challenges!

This week challenge at Christmas Card Challenges is to be inspired by this sketch:

Isn't it lovely with its clean and simple lines?

I made this card:


Since for my card I wanted a color matching perfectly the background paper, I had to use a square card. The paper is from First Edition while the digi stamp is from DigiStamp Boutique. I colored it with Copics and mounted it on a red cardstock. I was inspired by the red dots on the paper for my red accents.

I cannot wait to see the creations of my fellow DT members, there are always such elegant cards!
