A whole bunch of christmas cards

I definitely was inspired yesterday, created 10 cards in a day.....
For most of them I used pagemap sketches. All images are colored with copics and some are paperpieced...

Magnolia stamps (girl and silent night), wassail paper & sultry paper (basic grey), bazzill cardstock, prima flower and a brad.

My minds eye be merry paper and diecut (tree and blue border), hanglar girl, cardstock and a brown pen...

Wassail paper, magnolia stamps (again :)), background and Edwin. Maya Road chipboard stars and brown things.

Magnolia stamps, wassail paper and a paper tree tutorial from here.

And again wassail paper, magnolia stamp, a bow stamp from an unknown brand and some ribbon. I used a woven heart, found the template somewhere on the internet.

Wassail christmas trees...found inspiration for this one on twopeas, in the 36 days of Christmas.

Rachelle Ann Miller stamp, punch, be merry paper, mistletoe and pear paper basic grey, prima flower, ribbon and a brad.

Wassail paper, Maya Road Chipboard

Basic Grey paper: wassail and mistletoe and pear.

And number 10, magnlia stamps, brads and the same paper as the two cards above :).

Three Christmascards

I made three cards last week....right now I am working on a whole bunch more, those will be posted in the next days somewhere.

Two posts in one day! Last saturday I went to a christmas workshop and made three things...the other things will follow later, because I still have to finish them (read: add photo's etc.).
This one I finished today and I am really happy with how it turned out! It's a decorated wooden star.

The little figures are from Dille & Kamille, a store here in Holland. I also used thickers, stickles, maya road chipboard and a christmas tree branch garland (don't know how to call it ;)) and some holly, buttons and of course paper. I don't know the brand though....

Christmas Decoration

My christmas decoration is already done for a week...but haven't been able to take pictures up until yesterday. I leave early morning to go to university or work and return late afternoon...both times of the day its already dark. This year I didn't feel like putting up a tree...but did some other things.
A few pictures of part of the decoration:

My fireplace:
Close-up garland (made from the idea and description on the Royal Lemon forum!)

Hanging on the garland:

A tutorial for this birdhouse you can find here at Nichole Heady's blog!

And this centerpiece is made with this description (and part of part two).

Look-through Christmas card

I made a Christmas card with magnolia stamps and wassail paper:

As soon as I saw the window and the scenery stamp from Magnolia, I knew it would become a card like this one!

Some creations

As promised earlier here are some of the things I made....other things are still a work in a progress....and other things are still waiting for their picture to be taken...

A card with a Tancart set, this was my first try, so it isn't perfect, but I really like the technique! Now I have to find some way to make it without the spots...

The paper is urban prairie, the butterflies are punched out...and the leaves is a Magnolia stamp.

This is a spread out of a album about my grandparents, with childhood pictures from me and my brother with them. The first one is taken with a flash, so the pictures aren't really good.

And a close-up of the right side:

Paper is SEI Jolie Chocolat...and it's brown and pink, alpha rubons, prima flowers, doodlebug velvet brads and DMC for the swirls and text.

I'ts been quiet here....I have been creating, but forgot to take pictures.....remembered in the evenings, but couldn't get decent pictures at that time. I hope to remind it this week!

For the meantime, I've found a great blogcandy from a great cardmaker! Debbie! It involves paper, stamps and copics! She loves copics just as I do! Check it out!

Today I went to the Kreadoe and bought a lot of stuff:

Borduurpakketje van Pluk van de Petteflet, zes lapjes stof, twee pakjes stempels van Inkadinkado (die vierkantjes, leek me leuk voor borders), vlinderstempel, kerstboomstempel, twee vellen Ez-mount, twee magnolia's (viel trouwens wel wat tegen die stand, hadden veel niet bij zich vond ik...had er een paar op m'n lijstje die ik graag wilde, maar die hadden ze niet) en een TanCart mal.

Strikstempel, stempel boompje, vlinderstempel (gratis gekregen), Vivid inkt lavender (ook gratis gekregen), twee lintjes (paars en bruin) twee zakjes blaadjes van Prima, vlinders van Flora Doodles, pakketje just the edge van Bazzill wit
Wat kantjes, vijf Derwentpotloden, Brilliance inkt en pop fashion borders van Pink Paislee (zitten er ook in van chipboard, leek me handig als malletje).
