Holiday Card ~Glittered button berry~

I like customizing buttons and make it unique. The buttons I used for this card are originally just plane clear button. I applied liquid glue to the button and sprinkled lots of red glitter.
Yep, that's it, too easy to make glittered button! :)

Leaves are from stamp set CG363 Poinsettia&Berries, colored in those leaves with distress ink Peeled Paint. I also used one of berries image from the same stamp set to make a background.

And I got new shadow ink "soft granite" the other day and have waited to use it until today,
and I LOVE it! It's really nice grey color, definitely it works well for holiday cards.
So glad I bought this ink. :)

Here is the closer look of the card.

I used two background stamps which are "Music background CG222" and "Happy definition CG269" with my new soft granite ink. When I stamped Happy definition using this ink, I stamped on regular copy paper once, then I stamped to my tag shape because I wanted to see happy definition image with lighter color behind music notes. and I guess it worked? :) hehe

Anyway, thanks for looking at my card! and I am off to make another holiday card. :)

World Card Making Day

I started making 2012 holiday card since last month.
But I made only a few... I have to focus on this more! (I know!)

Anyway here is one of my holiday cards, I made this one on WCMD. 

"it's the most WONDERFUL time of the year"
Yes, exactly! my favorite time of the year! 

I made poinsettia embellishment using Hero Arts&BasicGrey stamp set CG363.
Stamped flower image onto water color paper with VersaMark and white embossing powder,
and used two distress inks (fired brick, aged mahogany) and perfect pearls. Then I stamped Hero Arts "Old Letter Writing" S4878 with white pigment ink to add some texture,
and put bunch of pearl stones.

Here is the closer look of poinsettia.

Thank you for looking at my project! 

Happy stamping! :)
