Joy

It’s definitely all things Christmas in my craft room, it’s like a glitter explosion in there.  I made the foamiran hellebores using my newest Hellebore Flower Die from Whimsy Stamps along with some new leaf additions to my die cutting stash. 

The stamens started life off white, but I gave them a coat of gold paint so they would tie in with the rest of the card.

I dug out one of the few Magnolia die kits I treated myself to last year.  I stopped buying them after 3, I just could not justify the cost of the kit, given that you’ve no clue what you’re paying for or getting AND you have to prepay months in advance. Totally ridiculous!  The bauble on today’s card is the first die I’ve used from that kit!  I know right?  Eek - total overspend there methinks, they sure saw me coming. 🙄

I die cut the JOY from a Spellbinders alphabet set.  I forgot just how much I love mirror card for Christmas cards.

  3. Bev, that is absolutely beautiful! I love your style woman! You always out-do yourself! Because nobody else can out-do you! I do love the hellebore flowers! What kind of paint are using to paint over the stamens?

  4. I love the way you customise things Bev, your gold painted elements really do tie the theme together. Love your alphabet die you used for the 'joy' word and I so know what you mean about the Magnolia kit. I have loved the dies I bought, but I do use only a few from the kit, which does make it a big overspend. I think I've enough now! LOL. Another stunning card hun. Hugs, Wends xoxo
