Katrin  made ​​some Christmas cards which I've used gorgeous sheets of Christmas series Paper Design and cozy scenes from Nice Crane Designs .<< Christmas greetings >> named range from the Paper Design, and it is really worth to see. Many of the sheets are printed well suited to projects outside Christmas too, so this is very versatile sheets.

On the first card I have used sheets Winter Children  and  Gingerbread long with red and force colored cardstock.


Decorated simply with cake napkin, a few flowers, snowflakes and charm attached to hemp thread.


Along the edge of the card I used a Tim Holtz die.


Have also used a design on the inside of the card, along with a text from Creative Hobby.



The second card is a big bag of cards. I have used both sides << Words of Christmas 



Have decked including snowflake from Dusty Attic.


Simple tag with large marking area inside the bag. The edge is punched with a Martha Stewart punch.


The last card is also a variant of a bag short. I have used both sides of the beautiful sheet << Poinsettias >>, one of my favorites.


The text is stamped onto a piece of patterned and then secured behind a Melissa Frances frame. I have applied to a thick layer of Glossy Accent.


The back of the card. Here I have folded down paper bag and made a closure using two 1 "circles, brads and hemp thread.


Inside the bag there is a writing space. The trees are from Dusty Attic.


Here you can see all designs from Nice Crane Designs , << Happy Santa DSL >>

Altered Frame for Nicecrane Designs

You can`t miss this stunning Altered Frame by Astrid Maclean Today I am sharing an altered frame I created with one of the adorable Christmas Images fromNicecrane Designs.

Right, so then I started to add several layers as a backdrop to the image and forgot to take further step by step photos, - usual story with me, I get so into the process that I totally forget about the old camera.


As you can see, I added the image (a black and white one from one of Nicecranes many wonderful Christmas Images) on top of several other layers. Here is a close up of the image


You can find all of his wonderful Christmas images HERE.

Christmas Children Greetings
Vicky  followed the same sketch as in her my last card but with a great digi from Nicecrane designs.  "I used one of the great digis from Christmas Children Greetings. And Julie Anne if you are reading this please STOP right now ;o)"

So I made this card for my SIL and brother who will be celebrating St-Nicholas day this week.


The paper is from MME - Holly Jolly. I added some little pearls from my stash and that's pretty much it!!! Lots of layering lol

Here's a closer look at the precolored digi.

Wenche did this vintage and all over adorable Christmas Card with design from NiceCrane Designs . The design I have printed on a coffee stained tag. It was a bit dark result, but I would try to use the tag anyway, and so the result; Wenche was working with my "Beautiful Birds Save Pack"

I made some highlights with white texture paint / snow effects.



The tag inside the card I've decorated with holly stamp from the set "Morehead, Christmas lights." Colored pencil and with berries of red pearls;

Robins, Snow and......

 Directly From Toni`s Blog ".my new Spellbinder nestie - "A2 Filigree Delight"."
I have wanted a fancy frame die for ages but most of the ones that I had seen needed an A4 cutting machine - something that I do not have. With it being 30% off weekend last week at Pinnacle crafts, I asked Andy for his advice about some dies that I had seen - unfortunately, they didn't have them in stock but he suggested this one and I love it. The "A2 Filigree Delight" is beautiful - the set contains 5 dies including fancy corners and a sentiment banner but I know it is the frame that I will be using the most. The frame has an oval centre which can be left solid for mounting on to, or cut out (the oval die is provided) so that the frame can sit over an image or something that you want to highlight.

I used the frame with the centre cut out to make this...

.

..a tent-fold A5 card. The card blank is smooth white CS and the blue background PP is from the Papermania Christmas range "Noel" - it has little glittery snowflakes all over the surface (which don't show up too well in the photo). I used one of the Christmas Birds images that Ignacio had sent me and laid the frame over the image...

.
..I used some crushed silk ribbon across the card behind the image and to create a nice big bow.
The card was finished off with some glittery snowflake stickers...


...just to keep with the Wintery look & feel. The blue in the image goes so well with the shade of the background PP.

Now usually I'm not a great fan of birds on cards but this collection of Christmas Birds from Nicecrane Designs is absolutely beautiful...

Tracy was working with one of my Christmas Sheet and she did this absolutely adorable Custom Candle,,,,,so sweet, so cute,,, so unique, .You can´t miss this cute sheet to create your own artwork on Christmas


Vintage Candle by Tracy

At Stamping Sensations this month the theme is 'Free & Easy' So you can do whatever you like just as I did. I did a candle in a vintage style using " A Joyful Christmas"

I did have to mess about getting the image to print on tracing paper, but the finished result was worth it. I made poinsettia's for round the base, and I will be making a gift box for this, that will follow soon.

Here is the sentiment I stamped for the back of the candle:-


And now a close up of the poinsettia's:-

Sooo cute Shadow Box Card by Lori
Have you ever made a shadowbox card? Nicecrane Designs has a lot of images that would work perfectly! This image is from Kittens and Puppies Christmas Pack. The frame for this card came from Silhouette, but you could use dies as well.


Hint: Use sturdy cardstock - I used 110 lb. Pour glitter on top of the image after you glue the open frames on top - it doesn't take a lot. When you add the top, make sure you have glue all the way around the image - you don't want the glitter falling out. To finish, simply attach a card base. So very fun and glittery!
