so Beautiful Star!

Hello everyone! How are you all today? It is so cold here recently in Japan.
Isn't it lovely to be able to say hello all at once to everyone around the world! :)

Today I have two projects to share with you. The first one is a card I've made with one of the new stamps from Magnolia. I've coloured with Distress Ink Re-inkers.
This gorgeous image is called "Beautiful Star" from the Little Circus Moscow Collection 2013.

So, is it horse? Or pegasus?? I actually think its pegasus with pretty wings. I actually should say my obsession with horses, unicorns and pegasuses. I've always loved them .. ever since I was a child. And basically ANYTHING with them on gets me excited, lol .. but I absolutely LOVE this one!!! It is soooo cute and awesome, isn't it?

I've also used 3 of the newest release DooHickeys. The beautiful keys are made with one of them "Key Kit". Other DooHickeys I used are Snowflake kit, Wrapped Merry Christmas and Feathers. They are all so gorgeous!

Papers: Magnolia

I've used 32mm 'Isabelle' White Vintage Style Cluny, 15mm Mermaid Ivory Ribbon, Ivory 10mm Open Rose, Ivory 30mm Wild Roses, 3 Stems Irridescent Hearts, Light Brown Hemp Twine, 6mm Sticky Tape, Stickles Stardust all from the fabulous Ribbon Girl store.


I'd like to enter this card into following challenges:

And here's the second project. I wanted to make a quick card, so I tried making the CAS - Clean and Simple - card. As you know, my style is NOT CAS .. lol! .. so I hesitated slightly before making it. hahah .. Ok, here's my CAS card.

I've masked 3 Manolia stamps - Magnolia's Apple Basket, A Joyful Piglet and too too cute Mini A Joyful Piglet all from the Winter Wonderland Collection 2013 and coloured them with Distress Re-inkers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and for reading this long post.

I can’t believe there is only 3 days left until Christmas. And also hard to believe it is almost the end of 2013!
Wishing you love, laughter and cheer all during the Christmas season and through the New Year!

  11. ひゃっほぉぉ〜ぅ、Yuriさ〜ん、ごきげんようぅぅ〜♪(^o^)/"
    今日、オオカミさんの実家から我が家へ(何度か休憩しながら)11時間半ドライブで帰ってきました♪(^o^;)" 行き来すると時差が一時間発生するのですが、1日で帰って来られる距離なので、ま〜、何とか慣れてきました (^.^;)"
    Magnoliaチックでとてもラブリ〜ですね♪ これを数少ない配色でこんなにドラマチックにカラーリング出来るなんて美しすぎます♪
    もしも、Yuriさんがフラット、シンプルカードを作られたとしたら、どのようなカードを作られるのかとてもとても興味があったのです!!!ひゃ〜〜〜っ、も〜普段のお仕事、ご家庭で目一杯お忙しいでしょうに、(違うかもしれないけど)作って見せてくださり本当に感激!!! とっても嬉しいです!!!本当にどうもありがとうございます!!! (^o^)/"""
    そうそう!!! ついついリボンを使いたかったのですが、細いTwainやヒモ系を結べば十分に可愛いし、リボンの代わりになりますものね!!! (^o^)" それから、そうでした!ソーイングもいいですね!ワタシ、ソーイングはするのですが、カードにソーイングしたことはないのです…。

  12. Восхитительная лошадка!!!
