It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Hello everyone!
New Saturday and new challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. This week we want to see

Fairy Lights

My Christmas lights look like Christmas balls, but they just look like that! ;) :)
I stamped the fir trees (Katzelkraft) and sponged the background with blue Distress Oxide ink. I stamped the houses, the little fairy or angel (Stampin'Up), the dog, the bird, the star and the fairy lights on cardstock, colored them with alcohol markers, fussy cut them and then adhered them. To make them look snowy, I applied white acrylic paint and Wink of Stella to the trees. The sentiment is from Lora ByLora. I hope you like this little winter scene.

My second card has a much simpler look. 
I cut out a light bulb and its base from rubber scraps from Stampin'Up stamp sets and used these homemade stamps to make the Christmas lights. I stamped on patterned paper embossed with snowflakes and immediately cleaned off the snowflakes with a paper towel to make them pop again. I traced the outer lines of the lights with a fineliner, stamped the sentiment and added a few sequins. As a finishing touch, I used a tracing wheel to make faux stitches around the edges of the card.

Have fun with the challenge!

  1. Mich begeistern ganz besonders die verschneiten Bäume, das sieht so echt aus!!! Mega Klasse Karte!! Bises

  2. Wow Rosmarie! I love both your cards, and for different reasons. Your first is so colourful, fun and Christmassy and it certainly fits the brief. But I absolutely adore your second card, and am blown away by all the work you have put into it, with your handmade stamps, and the attention to detail - I think it's my favourite. Thank you for all your hard work, and for really throwing yourself into this challenge. Hugs, Gill x
