This technique looks fancy  but it is actually very simple to do.  You can Google the northern lights stamping technique and there are several YouTube videos on how to do it so I am not going to go into detail regarding this technique.  There is a photo showing the colors I used.

Chocolate is good for you

Here is a yummy card anyone would enjoy.  I used the CTMH Chocolate Affair stamp set. On the strawberry, I used white  liquid applique to mimic white chocolate and sprinkle some glitter while it was wet. The top of the chocolate piece where given added interest with bronze stickles. Perfect card to give someone along with the real thing, chocolate!

Junk Bow

I came across this unique bow which could be used on many of our projects. What a great way to use up those ribbon & paper pieces left over from previous projects. What do you think?

Season's Greetings

Wow, a year goes by so fast! Today's post is an easy Christmas card. Would you Iike to create this card? Great - First cut a piece of double sided pattern paper 3 x 5 1/2. Fold the patter paper in half the long way. Take the "braided card" template and cut the lines. Create the folded look, the video link will be listed below.  Then cut a piece of solid cardstock 3 1/2 x 5 1/2. Use a border punch on the long side. Layer the pattern and solid cardstock together. I added a piece of ribbon and adhered it to the front of the A2 size card base. Then I stamped the sentiment.

Thursday challenges I participated in: 4 Kraft Girlz - #5 Anything goes, An Inky Situation - #15 Anything goes, Au Sentiments - #92 Christmas Sentiment, Papercraft Journey - Anything goes.
