Joy Ornament


Hi everyone.  My friend Nonni (Korttikarkuri) is holding a second Christmas card challenge ... this one starts today and runs until Dec. 24th.  The theme is "Scrap a Happy Christmas" ... use scraps to make the main part of your card.  Such a fun idea!!!  We all have tons of scraps laying around and here's a chance to use some up, join in the fun ... and maybe even win some prizes!!  Yep, Nonni has prizes from Stamplorations for the winner.

Here's the write up from Nonni explaining the challenge:

"Let's make Christmas cards using leftovers!  If you are anything like me, your paper scraps box is overflowing and you might even have some odd, forgotten embellishments.  Let's be creative, getting rid of our stash and make Christmas cards out of old bits and pieces.  All styles are welcome!"


I used small scraps of red and silver glimmer papers to die-cut the letters and ornament.  FYI, the ornament is three pieces all glued together:

Base - silver glimmer
Second:  red glimmer - die-cut with the smallest circle nestie to create a frame of red
Top:  red glimmer snowflake


Here's a close-up:





Stamps:  Big Christmas Wishes (Amy R)
Paper:  White; Modern Medley (music); silver glimmer, red glimmer (SU!)
Ink:  Black (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Lower Case Alphabet dies (My Favorite Things), Christmas Ornament die (My Favorite Things); small snowflake die (Impression Obsession), gold thread, glue, adhesives, and dimensionals




I hope you'll pop over to Nonni's blog and join in the fun!!


Edited to Add:  I'm entering this into Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for November - anything goes.

  12. I think my favorite word when I visit here, Loll, must be WOW! You've done it yet again, and this is just lovely. Hard to realize this is your 'scraps'! You've turned scraps/snippets into such a beautiful card with the lovely glittered letters against that music background. I'll have to find time to check out this challenge. How _DO_ you keep up with all the cardmaking, challenge entering & commenting...I just do not know! TFS & Hugs

  16. Terrific card Loll, so glad you are creating so much, wish I could get the creativieness bug going, I have been making some cards, but no energy to photo them and post, just been making them for what I need them for and mail them out.
    Right now I am working on getting 12 cards done for a Xmas swap and they were due today, but I can turn them in up till Tuesday she said, so they should be done by tomorrow, will take a photo of those. But seeing your works always gives me the push to get my butt in gear, I just love your work, keep on inspiring me!!!
    Thanks
    hugs
