Favorite five of 2011

Debbi has invited us again to show our favorite five of 2011. It was hard also for Debbi to pick up only 5 so, I'll show you also 10... this one was a very productive year, I made more than 150 cards in total!!!


I'll show you 10 cards but maybe they aren´t in a specific order, they are my 10 favorite ones.



 I like this one because is different to my CAS style and it was made for my daughter 5th birthday with this gorgeous image from Silvia Zet.


 I like the mix and match in this one, the colouring and in general how the card looks.


I like this monochromatic one and love Mo Manning's image... I had a lot of fun doing this doll.


I like the layout of this one and the image as well... it was for my niece's 16th birthday and this Tickle Pink Lolita looks just like Paula.


I like this color combo and the embellishments I used...

 This one is so delicate... I love the image too!


I love cards with flowers' images and this one is lovely... I like to play monochrome and blue is one of my favorite colors :)


I don´t use very often black and white combo, but this card with the splash of color from the flowers I think is a great one...

 I love the color combo and love the image...

 I like how it looks to print the image in kraft paper and color it with pencils...

My Favourite Five Christmas Cards of 2011

Debby, at A Scrapjourney, posted her 5 favorite Christmas cards and is inviting all her friends to join her on posting the 5 favorite ones. Debby is also offering a yummy prize for a lucky winner.


So here I have my favorite 5 Christmas card of 2011, I'm not sure if I don´t change my mind later... but at this moment these ones are:

#1  I like the LO of this one and how the wreath looks and like the jingles as embellishments.


This card is also participating at the Catered crop challenge: favorite holiday card

#2 I like Nativity images (this is a Bugaboo one) and I like how this non traditional Christmas colors card looked.



#3 Another with a nativity image (Precious Moments coloring page) and I like the CAS style with the blue bling.


#4 One more nativity image and another CAS one... (this one from Stretch 'n Bubbles). Specially I like how the golden ribbon, twine and jingles look all together.


#5 And I like this snow bear (from Designed 2 Delight) in a monochromatic theme, I like the embossing and how the card looks in general.


Thank you for watching :)

Nativity card

If there is an image I like those are nativity scenes because they remind us the true meaning of Christmas.


 This one is from Stretch 'n Bubbles. I colored it with acuarelable pencils and added a little bit of glitter on the star. I cut out the image. The sentiment was a freebie at Meljen's blog and I colored it and used some glitter too.


I only used a blue dp with stars. This is the perfect background for the star and the scene itself. I used a golden ribbon and made a knot to tide up a couple of jingles and also I used a gloden thread (it looks like twine) to make a bow for the jingles.

Snowman with birds

As I promised yesterday, today I'm uploading two more cards...
One more card, one more snowman... they are so cool!!!!! I like to make cards with snowmen :)


This one is "Feed the birds" from Stretch 'n Bubbles (the store is closing on the 31st, so be fast if you want to buy digis... they have a great promo right now). I colored it with acuarelable pencils and added glitter in the snow part and some bling on the buttons.



I used only white cardstock and used two different embossing folders. Then I used a white ribbon (Home Sweet Home), a silver snowflake and more bling for the snow. I like how all the colors look on the white background.

Joy

This is another Christmas card (one of the last ones for this year...). I wanted to make an elegant card, don´t know if I achieved it (I don´t feel very happy about this card).



The image I've got it as freebie from Gina K designs blog a few weeks ago. I colored it with acuarelable pencils. I used blue and pink as I wanted to use non traditional colors. I also added some extrafine glitter to the ornament to make it a little bit sparkle.



I didn´t use any dp, only white cardstock and my embossing machine (I am loving it!!!) with a Sizzix folder - Tim Holtz Alterations (Royal Florished or somthing like this) ...very pretty!!!!!! I also used an organza ribbon and three gems.



I made two more cards but I need to sleep, then I'll post them tomorrow, Lord willing...

Winter boy

As I told you in my previous post, I am inspired for today's weather (-20°C!!!! brrrrrrrrrr..................) And I need a break from Christmas card, so today I am doing winter cards :)


The image is "Winter blues" from Digi my World and I colored it with acuarelable pencils.As a mat I used a white circle that I distressed the border with a turquoise-blue ink pad. And this boy reminds me to my daughter's best friend, Elias. He is only one year older than Vicky but he is one head taller than her... he is blonde and very white and loves to play with snow!


I used kraft paper as backgroud and embossed it with "stars, circles and dots" folder (I love this one... you can see how many projects I did using this folder just browsing a little bit on December's posts) I also used two different skyblue dps and a skyblue ric-rac ribbon.


Challenges:
Digi my world: winter wonderland
Do you stack up: winter
Stamp with fun: sketch
Gingerloft: winter or Christmas
All sorts: blue and brown
Sparkles forum: anything but a Christmas card
The corrosive challenge: anything but Christmas
The crafty pad: anything but Christmas
Catch the bug: baby it´s cold outside (Yes, endeed)
The crafty calendar: cold and frosty
Hiding in my craftroom: embossing
My sheri crafts: let it snow
Send a smile 4 kids: winter fun
