Deux de plus / Two more

Bonsoir! On dirait que la saison de Noël bat son plein en ce moment chez moi... En tout cas, si il ne pleut pas dehors, il pleut des cartes à la maison! En voici deux nouvelles, les deux pour le défi mensuel de Hero Arts.

Hello! One could say that we're in the middle of Christmas season here... At least, if it's not raining outside, it's raining Christmas cards at my home! Here are two newly made, both for the Hero Arts monthly challenge.

Pour la première j'ai utilisé une photo des branches de sapin sous le givre prise en Janvier. Je l'ai imaginée comme le fond pour ce ornement embossé en blanc et coloré avec encre bleue. J'ai ajouté ce cordon argenté ainsi que quelques flocons et le sentiment, tous tamponnés avec une encre Dew Drop Brilliance. Les voeux sont en polonais, comme c'est pratique les tampons lettres!

For the first I used a picture of frosted pine branch I took in January. I imagined it as a background for this ornament white embossed and distressed with some blue ink. I added this silver twine as well as some snowflakes and a sentiment, all stamped with a Dew Drop Brilliance ink. The sentiment is in Polish - it's so convenient the single letters stamps!

Matériel: cdc Migros; tampons HA; encres Ranger et Tsukineko; perfo de bord Fiskars; cordon argent

Pour la deuxième je me suis inspirée d'une carte de Celeste Smith que j'ai vu ICI. J'ai voulu me l'adopter en utilisant les tampons. Et voilà le résultat.

For the second one I was inspired by a card by Celeste Smith that I saw HERE. I wanted to make this idea mine by using stamps. Here's the result.

Matériel: papiers Bazzil; tampons HA; encre et Stickles Ranger; alphas AC; perles amuse; perfo de bord Fiskars; machine à coudre

Voilà pour ce soir. A tout bientôt!

Here's for tonight. See you soon!

Oh Agata, these are both simply delicious! LOOVE your idea to use a photo of a tree and then hang your stamped ornament from it! Ingenius! And the ornament used as an "o" in joy is also a wonderul idea, one I may borrow myself!

Encore deux beautés qui nous mettent vraiment dans l'ambiance!
Mais, tu ne serais pas une "toquée de Noel" toi par hasard?!

Love these, Agata!! Love the idea of combining the personal photo with stamps. I toyed with that idea last year at Christmas but couldn't quite nail down an idea. Really LOVE the "JOY" card!! Everything about it is so very pretty! Hope you are having a great day!

I love how you used the ornament punt as the O - I'll have to remember to try that more often with vowels! Nice card

Really gorgeous and festive are both cards! You have me melting over your first card, it looks mesmerizing with the photo behind the ornament!
