I love the soft pastels in this pretty floral arrangement! I started with a pastel pink rose as the main focal point, and added a few more pastel blooms for a tropical feel. Take a look at what our design team has created for you this month!

House of Cards January Challenge

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the House of Cards January Challenge! We have a brand new inspiration for you this month that you are going to love!  Create a card using a Mixed Media technique, use the color palette, or combine the two for your own gorgeous Mixed Media creation! You can get all the details, link up your creation, and see more great inspiration and ideas over at the House of Cards Blog right here: http://houseofcardschallenge.blogspot.com/

Create a card using Mixed Media and/or Colors

 

I used a number of techniques in my mixed media card, starting with a die cut card base with a cute stitched edge border. I then created a pretty watercolor background on watercolor paper, then cut the paper into nine tiny stitched squares. Then I added die cuts and a few sequins. I think I was feeling in a little bit of a cheery love mood!

House of Cards Holiday Blog Hop

Hello Everybody!

Thank you so much for joining us for the House of Cards Holiday Blog Hop! We have a beautiful challenge for you this month, with prizes, sponsors, and great inspiration and ideas! You can get all the details, and start at the beginning of the hop over at House of Cards right here: http://houseofcardschallenge.blogspot.com/

Our inspiration photo is all about the holiday! How will you be inspired? Create a holiday themed project and link it up at House of Cards for your chance to win some beautiful prizes from our amazing sponsors!

Take a look at what I have created for you this month!

I fell in love with the beautiful, natural Christmas tree in the inspiration photo. I loved it’s simplicity, and the minimalist decorations on the tree. This year, Mr. Crimson Owl and I are celebrating a very minimalist Christmas, focusing on our blessings from the past, the present and the future. So I selected a beautiful, elegant, vintage image from mhkdesigns, Christmas Frames. I love its Victorian vibe!

My second card was created with an image from Beccy’s Place, available from beccysplace@bigpond.com.  I looked at many beautiful Christmas images from Beccy’s Place, festive and cheerful. Then I came across Seasonal Window and felt it would be the perfect compliment to my Deck the Halls card. The simple candle burning in the window, a Christmas Eve welcome to the passersby on a cold night, really is what the idea of Christmas is all about. I even added a little snowy texture to the windows!
