hello friends
 have been playing in my craft room with the MEG'S
gorgeous Christmas papers 
'Twinkling Christmas' 
to go with the theme I made a reverse canvas 
& added miniature fairy lights
It was fun creating something a little different...

I made the frame with texture paste through a stencil 
then painted with gesso & 
added some jacaranda blue mixed paint to highlight the texture 
fussy cut many elements from the ephemera sheets & papers & adhered them to chipboard to give them strength .. 
the Christmas trees are from my stash. 
Adhered the background paper & all trims then added the lights.

Flowers, flourishes, silver leaves & sparkles completed the scene

So Very Beautiful ~ In the Water Colour Garden

I was so thrilled when I received the "In the Water Colour Garden " Range of papers from Megs Garden, I knew it would be perfect for my daughter's up coming wedding ~ and it is

So Very Beautiful 

I love this photo of my daughter. I kept the layout quite simple as the papers are so pretty and I wanted the photo to shine.

I have added the delicate fligree in the corner of the photo and popped a pearl flower in the middle.

Thanks so much for calling by, I recommed you pop over to the shop and be inspired by the beautiful In the Water Colour Garden Range and many more beautiful products in the store.

It's starting to look a lot like Christmas ~ Twinkling Christmas

Hello Mary here today to share with you the rest of my cards I created with the Twinkling Christmas Card Pack ~ seriously made my  life so much easier to create my Christmas Cards with this gorgeous Card Pack.

How cute are the Christmas Fairies that I have fussy cut from the Twinkling Christmas Cut and Create Ephemera sheet.
For the card on the left I added the gold stars ( they come on a strip with a sticky backing you peel off to adhere to your project )
I then added the gold doily which I cut in half, the gold & cream holly leaves .
The card on the right I once again fussy cut the Christmas fairy added her amongst the baubles and ribbon pattern on the Paper . I added a extra bauble fussy cut from the Ephemera sheet raised it with a foam adhesive attached it with the gold star and gold pearl trim to the branches. To finish I added the large butterfly also fussy cut from the Ephemera Sheet ( so many gorgeous images to choose from )

Next fairy is in the more traditional Christmas colours of Red and Green. I made a tag to attach her to and fussy cut the Christmas Balls and little Christmas cluster of butterflies and ribbons attached to the tag behind the fairy.  A little gold stick on gem on the tag and Christmas Balls to finish off the card.

Another in the traditional colours of Christmas, with the fabulous image of the lady shopping in her magnificent clothes , what style ! I again created a tag with the red brick background and simply added some snowflaces and I created a sentiment with a clear pebble.

I simply added St Nicholas from the Ephemera Sheet and then added the gold and white holly leaves tucked in the branches fussy cut from the Ephemera Sheet... Card done

and finally I have layered the fussy cut images from the Ephemera Sheet, the bauble, Saint Nicholas and the gold leaf , I then added thin silver ribbon to the bauble tied in a bow at the top.
I hope I have inspired you to start creating your Christmas cards , with this beautiful pack and images to create with you will have them done in no time at all !
Happy Creating
