Merry Christmas cards

As you know, I hand make all my Christmas cards. This year there will be over 100 different ones. I only show a few on my blog! Today here are two for Retro Cafe Art Design Team. Two very different looks. A sweet angel with quilled wings all in Green  and a pastel blue village scene in a tree silhouette.
Hope you  too are having a creative season.

Tiny woodland scene

Been working on a number of projects for Retro Cafe Art. I adore the variety of items that Kristin supplies in her gorgeous shop. You should check it out. She also has great giveaways and swaps on facebook too! Here's a tiny 1.5 inch little scene in a teenie tiny box,  that we will hang on our tree. Isn't the tiny deer adorable! I added the spots to make it a fawn.
Hope you are having a wonderful holiday season.

Giving grace

Ornaments are on my creative list this season. Some of my dear friends receive them instead of cards, that way they can put them on their trees and look at them as time goes by. So I am giving memories or little reminders of remembrance.
Today's pretty pink and green piece is called "giving grace" and uses retro cafe art supplies,
Hope you are creating memories this week.
Take care, Gerri

Cutie Reindeer Gecko Galz Days of Christmas Tags

Its a wonderful days of Christmas tags at Gecko Galz! Heres mine for today for Day 7 with a cute little reindeer. Now who should I send this too this year? Maybe you!

To make this tag begin with red card stock and layer a striped/ dotted paper. The Gecko Galz reindeer image was fussy cut and glued on with pop dots for dimension. The red and green foam ornaments were tied with  matching red and green string and came next. The edges  of the tag were trimmed with red German Scrap from Retro Cafe Art and the same red and green string. The hand stamped sentiment says Merry Christmas and was layered on blue and green paper. The final accents include tiny green buttons, red and green Stickles and a red ribbon to hang the tag.

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!

Glorious Russian Winter Tags

I am of Russian heritage and when I saw these beautiful Russian cameos, I just feel in love with them.  You all know how much I enjoy reading, so they also reminded me of reading War and Peace long ago. I know I am crazy reading books of such long length, but it's the story that I love and the ability to explore new worlds. So for  my December Gecko Galz design team project  I created these Russian tags, I hope you enjoy them.

"Winter Russian Tags"

"Peace and Joy"

"Winter Greetings"

To make these tags the backgrounds were created  by using doilies as stencils and spraying silver and gold paint. I applied the Russian cameos from the Gecko Galz sheets and added folded foil papers trim. The snowflakes, rhinestones, blue ribbon ties, Sentiment and Stickles were the final added  sparkly touches.
