Big Embossed Poinsettia

Hello Bloggers,

Another Christmas card today. I've had this Crafters Companion Poinsettia set of dies for years. I used it back in the day, but not too much, because the flower that it makes is HUGE! This year, I just made the whole card bigger :)
 I gilded the embossed petals with some gilding wax to let the embossing stand out more.

Very Shiny Christmas Trees

Hello Bloggers,

A  Christmas card today, with a whole bunch of very shiny Christmas trees of  different sorts. The ones on the right are just mirri board, and the ones on the left are colored and glittered, and then colored and glittered again, which adds some depth to their icy looks, I hope. :)
The blue paper in the middle is stamped with Christmas cheer texts and glittered. Of course :)
The Angel is one of the Nellie's Choice 3 Angels. I love these dies!

Turquoise Gilded Christmas Card

Hello Bloggers,

a very golden Christmas card today. In weird colors :)

I started with coloring the Merry Xmas fishtail banners, loved the result, and simply had to follow the color scheme. :)
 The background is cardstock embossed with an embossing folder and gilded with some wax.
The flowers are sprayed with some water diluted golden paint. Once dry it happened to end up very shiny :)
... still wondering if Christmas Poinsettia can be this color... at least on a card :)

Hello Autumn

Hello Bloggers,

An Autumn card today.

I used watercolors to create the background layer, and added some golden splatters. Love the shine :)
The mushrooms and the word Hello are colored with glitter gel pens. The die-cut word Autumn actually has 4 layers:orange-gold-orange-white! And some glitter on top of it all :)
 I also added some sequins and clear liquid pearls (sort of rain drops for the season?)
