Hearfelt Creations about making your own backgrounds and then made my own. I really enjoyed the process and was happy to use my stamps in a new way. First I stamped an overall random background using an hombre green ink. Then I used a dauber to add pink Distress inks, Worn Lipstick and Victorian Velvet Pink. Once dry, I added small Distress Rock Candy glitter to the leaf areas and larger glass glitter to the flowers area, giving an overall beautiful sparkle. I also used Glossy Accents for the flowers for extra shine. (the bottom picture is my attempt to show you the glitter- it just does not show up well in photos!)
When all was dry, I embellished with die cuts and flowers. The top card also has some pretty pink organza ribbon. I ended with some crystal sequins. I wish you could see the glittery effect, so pretty!
The flowers are Prima flowers from the Wild and Free collection.

This year I may not get to make too many Christmas cards. Between travel and a cold, I just don't have the energy this year. Last night I did a few small watercolor paintings that may turn into a card or two. The large tree has glitter on it that you cannot see in this picture. Happy Creating!

This mini cloche # 3 is another deer scene. I used a tiny tree and a brown deer. To me these are magical. I think it is my inner little girl that delights in these. It stands 3" tall. This is best seen if you look at it up close, to see all the details.

Here is another tiny cloche I made. It is 3.5" tall. I will be selling these at a local craft fair (yes Dianne!). This one is a snowman and winter baubles. I added a glittered paper background behind the snowman. If you pull this up close you can see all the little details. I love the magic and whimsy of Christmas!
