A Word of 'Encouragement'

crafty friend Maria in Germany.
Thank You soooo much!

Stampin' Royalty
For my Tic Tac Toe
I chose the top column - red/glitter/snowflakes.
This is my first Christmas card this year.
 I can't believe I have left it soooooo late - again.
I got my Christmas container out yesterday to make this card
and I am always surprised at what is in there.
My card base is sculptured pearlescent paper
and red card stock is also pearlescent paper.
I attached score tape to the 3 strips of  paper
and added glitter - of course you know how it is with
that it sticks everywhere.
My snowflake is from Spellbinders and glittered also.
Frame is embossed with SU framelits -  hand cut.
 Sentiment from Gina K Designs.
Both are popped.
Finished with some gems.

An 'Explosion of Colour'

Josephine is Hosting our
As you can see I did exactly as she asked.
I used so many mediums here -
paints inks stencils texture paste glitter
stamps embossing
for my explosion of colour.
You can see the shimmer here.
I used new dies that are a little different from
the normal stitched ones. You cut with one
and the other is  stitches so you can choose
the distance between cut and stitch.
My big sentiment is also a new one I thought
would make a good feature.
They are both from Nina's Things
Hope you will be able to join us for this challenge.
Pop over and see what colourful creations the Team created.
It doesn't have to be a card but make sure it doesn't
exceed the Total 15 challenges (including ours).
Thanks for dropping in
