Merry Christmas!

Hi friends!

I'm here to share my last two Christmas cards for 2016. I run out of time and energy in the end and not everyone that I would have wanted to send cards to received one from me... But that's life I guess. :) However, I got some extra boost for these last cards: at Inkspirational we DT members have done a Secret Santa for a couple of years -we all get a person to send a small present to and everyone receives something from their Secret Santa too. This year I received a wonderful craft package from my Secret Santa: it contained die cuts, stamped images, sparkly enamel dot-type embellsihments, pre-made brush water color sheets and even some Christmas sentiment dies. Amazing package! 

Here's the two first cards I made with the supplies. I used the brusho sheets (my Secret Santa tipped that they would be great for die cutting but I just couldn't bare cutting through them! They were so pretty!), the dies (for the word "merry"), the die cut bauble and those lovely sparkly embellishments. In the first card I also used a Uniko stamp for the "string" of the bauble and a Sugar Pea designs bow die + Christmas sentiment by STAMPlorations. My second card is super simple, I've only added a heat embossed Finnish Christmas sentiment and a snowflake I had. I so love these sparkly enamel dots, they look amazing! Thank you Secret Santa!

With this post I want to wish everyone the most wonderful Christmas. I hope you'll enjoy the holidays by celebrating, resting, hanging out with loved ones... And by crafting of course! :)

I'd like to join Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday (use dies) with my first card. 


  1. Two amazing cards Nonni. What a lovely idea to have a Secret Santa exchange with the DT at Time Out! :) So fun!! Love what you've made with some of the goodies you received. xx

  2. Two great cards (and thank you for my fantastic rl card!) and your Secret Santa sounds great. (It wasn't me!)

  3. I for goose pimples seeing these (not sure if that translates?) but I am astounded by your creations from the package, that bow with the bauble looks stunning and on that background just perfect and what a way to use the die sentiment, I love does left in white. And I adore you left the brusho sheet for the second card. These have made me so happy x

  4. Two beautiful cards, Nonni. Happy Christmas! xx

  5. Great use of your craft goodies, Nonni. Both cards are awesome... but I adore the second so much with that blue/gray colour combination:)

  6. Both beautiful in there own way! Love that they are in non-traditional colours! Merry Christmas to you!
