Hi there!
Today is my day to provide a little inspiration from

I love creating Christmas cards, but
sometimes I like playing with other types of crafts.
So, for this project I altered a bottle using

I colored the image with SN Markers and fussy cut.
I had some pretty patterned paper, I thought would be
the perfect background for this digi, that has snowflakes 
and some sparkle. I traced a circle onto the back of
the paper and tore around the edges before gluing
to the bottle. Then, I came upon a die cut I had in my stash
and decided it would work great on the lower edge of the bottle.
After adding the image I started adding greenery, berry picks
and some glittery pipe cleaners. The finishing touches were
a bow and shimmering snowflake.
I love the way this turned out!

I hope I've provided some inspiration for you 
and that you'll check out all the fabulous products at

Merry Christmas in Blue

Hey there!
I'm over on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog today
to share a Christmas Card I created combining
dies from Memory Box and Precious Marieke.
If you've not checked out the products available at
you need to!

I gathered my materials to include the 4 die sets I used
plus a 5.5 x 5.5 inch card base, patterned paper, 
a blue matte metallic card stock, green metallic card stock,
 white card stock and some iridescent glitter glue.

Next, I did my die cutting.
I cut the frame and sentiment out of the blue card stock.
I cut the candle die 3 times, using the white, blue and green card stocks.
I cut 1 large flower, 3 medium and small flowers.

I assembled the candles using the white die cut as a base
and adhered the blue next. With the green, I snipped off the
candle portion, just leaving the foliage and
adhered to the blue layer. I ended up coloring the
flames of the candles with gold glitter gel pen.
I then layered the flowers, making 1 large and 2 medium sized,
using brads with gem centers.
I added some glitter glue to the flowers of a little sparkle.

Next, I assembled the card base by matting the patterned paper
with the blue matte metallic card stock and adhering to the card base.

Next I added the frame to the background
and layered the candles on the bottom edge.

I added the flowers to the candle foliage
and lastly, cut and matted a thin strip
of white card stock, adhered the sentiment
and applied to the lower portion of the card.

Each of the dies I've used are linked
to the Dies R Us Store below.
