Christmas Eve extravaganza

Well it's Christmas Eve and all the preparations are done for this wonderful holiday. I want to wish all of you a  very Happy Christmas Eve. I thought I'd share numerous Christmas  projects including cards and ornaments using Retro Cafe Art supplies. I am also sharing a few photos from Christmas celebrations here in the low country. One is the Bluffton, SC Christmas local parade with trucks, trailers, floats, pirates, tractors and all kinds of fun. The second is the Beaufort SC Christmas  night boat parade. It was so beautiful  to be on the harbor at night with all the boats covered in bright colorful lights with music playing and sipping hot chocolate.

Hope you are having a delightful holiday season . 
Take care,

Steampunk Santa

So here's something a bit different, it's a Steampunk ornament for Retro Cafe Art. It's hanging in my studio. I had fun this year making all different kind of ornaments  but  I call this girlie steam punk. I love the theme but, do have to Sparkle it up abit!

So I started with a glass ornament  that you were supposed to put a photo in. I chose to put in a retro Santa face  from the Oh Santa Collage Sheet with the Ho Ho Ho  collage words paper cuts words. Of course it was glittered up with Stickles. I should buy stock in Ranger Industries! Ha Ha.... Under the Santa are all store of metal gears and tags. It also has mini glitter red jingle bells and a RCA propeller. The Believe tag was the final pies. Some burgundy ribbon and he was also set to fly!

Hope you will fly around this week and get all you need done!
Artfully yours,

Joyful Green Snow

Here's an ornament I made for Retro Cafe Art, it hangs proudly on our tree. We have a nice medium sized tree this year. It is decorated in  only gold, silver and white. Its very sparkly!  I've sent out all my cards and now I can take a rest. This year there were over 50 individually decorated unique cards were sent.

So, to make this ornament I started with the Snowflake  ornament and painted it cream and then green. I added the Christmas Word Joyful cutout covered with gold Stickles. The collage image is from Retro Cafe art called Let it Snow. The Mini glitter jingle gold bells were hung green thread. The whole piece was outlined in green Stickles.

Here's wishing you a joyful week.
Take care,

Black and White and Christmas all over

For the Gecko Galz 's  Design team this month, here are two  different projects both from the Black and White beauties collage sheet. I just couldn't leave them black and white so, I painted and glittered them up for Christmas. Today I am sharing a greeting card and also a little shrine necklace.

The card started with the lovely image that I embellished. It was layered on pattern paper and edged with German scrap. I added the glittered holly, "25" and the word beautiful.

 The shrine necklace uses several Retro Cafe Art supplies including the shrine, doves, snowflake and pretty metal rose. All were painted and layered. The Black and White beauty is inside the shrine.

Hope you have a glittery week.
Take care, Gerri

I am being featured at Gecko Galz  this month in the designer spotlight. I really love the collage images that Leanne does for this site and you should check them out. The ones I used are on the freebie page.   She is also setting up the yahoo group with contests and prizes. Do check it out.

These are the two Christmas cards that I created using a Gecko Galz collage sheet for the spotlight. They are different in style, but still me with touches of glitter! Hope you like them.

Hope you enjoy the freebies this week.

Cute Santa Dollies

Now that Thanksgiving is over, my big push is Christmas. I make Christmas cards, Christmas ATCs and even Christmas ornaments to send to family and friends. I've been doing it for so many years that now I can not send a purchased card to anyone! LOL

So here's a Retro Cafe Art ATC that I've created. I just adore their  paper cuts especially these Santa dollie heads. I added their white pom pom and glitter on the fur hats There's also Red stars covered with glitter and all sorts of sparkle trim.

Here's wishing you a sparklie day!
take care, gerri
