For my card today I decided to think "outside the box" and do a few black ornaments.  Who does that?? LOL  Well... I really like it!!!  Beth's set really gives you a ton of options and I just couldn't resist showing as many of those ornaments as I could fit onto one card!!

I started with some Pure Luxury Turquoise Sea and added a layer of Black Onyx.  I stamped my images on white and for the teal one, heat embossed it for some added dimension.  The long filigree ornament has to be one of my favs in the set!!!  



With Tami's sets it's always fun and easy to do a CAS card.  I wanted to showcase this awesome snowflake sentiment with some of the awesome paper in the newest Patterned Paper Pack, "Merry Little Christmas".  

My card base is Pure Luxury Ivory.  I added the Patterned Paper then another strip of Ivory which I stamped the snowflake on.  I used the lid of a nearby glue bottle to make my cut around the top and bottom of the snowflake.  I added Stardust Stickles to the ends of the snowflake for added pop and dimension.  




I REALLY like this card.  I'm  sometimes surprised at how a card finishes up and sometimes wonder how I got there! This is one of those cards! LOL  

My card base is Pure Luxury Fresh Asparagus.  I added some Cranberry Tart and more of that fabulous paper from the "Merry Little Christmas" pack.  I stamped the background words onto Sand card stock and then my mistletoe.  Once I got to stamping these berries and leaves, I was hooked on the set and wanted to make more.  Ha  So fun doing little "connect" sets! I distressed the edges and added some Tim Holtz Distress ink, "Pine Needles" around the edges.  

Check out more  amazing designs and inspiration from the rest of the Design Team:

Pretty cards! I like the black ornament card. It's quite striking!

Mardi Weber said...

The black and turquoise ornaments are so elegant. You wouldn't think that black could work so well for a holiday card. I love the Mistletoe Memories card. The printed paper coordinates so well with the stamped image.

Marianne said...

i love your colors! Thanks for sharing

Lagene said...

Wonderful cards, clever teal amongst the black ornaments!

Susan said...

Deck the Halls wins again in my world! Love the idea of black ornaments then leaving the focal image in a beautiful color to make it pop! Very Clever!

gorgeous projects! (a little late in my hopping, but still wanted to comment). great vintage effect on the last card with the distressed edges and that awesome bow and button (or brad) in the centre! And I just LOVE the black and turqoise/teal colour combo on your first card with the ornaments!

Beautiful color combo on the first and the textured panel on the last one is just perfection!!!

Like everyone else loving the dynomite colour combo on the first card but your second card is also awesome, kind of nordic feeling and I love the layout you chose for the mistletoe card. I cannnnn't wait to get my stamps
