Denise Ann's Christmas Collection

Hi Ladies
Denise Ann's collection of projects is really fantastic - I was very surprised when I saw her request for papers - she used the images from the Vintage Christmas ATC papers.

Her first project is a beautiful card with a dark blue border punched cardstock & embellished with reds & gold & with green to accent the little girl's coat

Then the following 2 tags:  The first one is in the traditional Christmas colours of red & green with a jingle bell

The second tag is in the cooler colours of a cold blue Christmas with icy snowflakes & glitter

 She then turned her attention to an Explosion card - again using a dark blue border punched cardstock but with her own paper - Santa's Garden - stunning & exciting. She used the Santa section in the base of the card & the sky sections of the paper in the inside of the explosion pieces

Closed Explosion Card
The explosion card opened to show the inside

Inside base of the explosion card

And then to finish her Christmas Collection, another beautiful card:  - this time using 1 of her own papers & a round lacy doily as backgrounds to the distressed & glittered image; glittered icy snowflakes, lace, muslin, icy flourishes & white flowers & leaves are used as embellishments 

Denise Ann used:

Products from Meg's Garden:
Vintage Christmas 1 & 2 ATC papers
Gold German scrap
jingle bell
Holly leaves
Merry Christmas ribbon & checkered ribbon
gold leaf flitter

Other Products used:
snowflake punches are Martha Stewart
gold snowflakes are Spellbinders 
retro punch
Martha Stewart border punch
fired brick ink
Martha Stewart fern leaf punch

Well done, Denise Ann

Gayle is up next & tells me she has been having great fun - she has done a Christmas box & 2 cards so far & says she needs a couple more days - could not say no.

Bye for now
