I colored a piece of manilla cardstock with yellow, orange and red distress inks, making sure they blended well. Then I started to cut out the flames by hand, but it did not look good. Time to be creative. I went through my dies in search for something that looked like flames and when I saw my poinsettia die I knew the petals would be perfect. I cut out a bunch of flowers and then cut off all the petals. To create the wall behind the fire I used orange, red and black distress inks to make the wall look really warm and grimy, like real fire places do. To highlight the flames I painted on some Glamour Dust Glitter Paint. Thanks for looking and have a great day!

A Christmas Card I made using Pion Design papers, differents stamps, dies and silver stickles. I diecut a circle in the paper, diecut a circle of the image of the 2 girls and put it behind the negative space. Between the layers I put of piece of acetate and then I popped up the top layer of paper with dimensional adhesive.

I used different distress inks and mists to create this card. I also used an embossing folder for the top layer of my card. I don't know if it shows up on the picture, but I die cut the butterfly in the blue paper so only the negative space was left. Then I die cut the butterfly again from a piece of orange paper that was left, and put it in the negative space as a piece of puzzel. It looks really nice in real life. The sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder.

If you are like me you have a lot of random pearls in different colors and sizes in your stash. I was thinking of creative ways to use them and came up with this idea. I draw a heart on a piece of paper (you can use a die if you have one) and cut it out. Then I lined up the paper on the card and used the negative space to place the pearls along the edge of the heart space to get a perfect placement. You can draw a heart directly on the card or use the actual heart when you place the pearls. I just thought this was the easiest way.

I made this mini using chipboard and Graphic 45 papers. I had a lot of scraps and random sheets from different collections and since many of the collections coordinate so well, I decided to combine them and use up some scraps at the same time. The only papers that aren't from G45 in this mini are the images of the girl and dresses on the cover. They are from Pion. The person who is receiving this mini doesn't scrapbook so I tried to keep it simple without too many hidden pockets and tags.
This Christmas card is my favorite amongst those I've made so far. Silver and blue give that classic, yet vintage/shabby chic look that I love. And Pion's papers are just heavenly to create with!
This is the tag that goes with the card. I did a lot of stamping, misting and inking with distress inks to
achieve the look that I was going for. Love the combination of Vintage Photo and Iced Spruce.

This is a tag collage I made a while back, using chipboard, gesso, stamps, embossing powders, metal embellishments, mists, old bookpages, distress inks, corrugated cardboard and Inka Gold.

I love making cards with landscapes and scenes. I make up little stories about the cards and feel like I've created my own little world. I imagine that the sweet little girl in this card lives alone in the house together with all her animals and she is very happy :)
I folded this card in different sections to create a 3D effect. The first 2 sections are a little landscape with trees, a reindeer, Santa and children playing in the snow. In the last section I put a tag where there's place for a message.
