Friendship and Christmas

I wanted to enter Winnie & Walter Rerun No. 32, but I don't have Mini Scenery: Madison.  Fortunately you can also make a card inspired by one from the DT.  I love Kelly's rainbow of scallops colored with Zigs.  Decided to use Cover Model: Do You See What I See as a stencil.  
I scribbled Zigs onto a palette, picked up the color with a small damp brush & painted over the stencil.  Since I just wanted a watercolor look, I didn't try to be exact.  The panel was covered with a frame made from SSS Frames & a Spellbinders rectangle.  Had to improvise by cutting & attaching the scalloped edge to the inside of the rectangle to make it the right size.  I used foam tape to attach the panel to the card front.  Like Kelly's card, everything is white except for the Zig coloring. 
Love my new Mama Elephant sentiment die cut which I stacked 3 high & covered with Stickles.  I'm also entering AAA Cards, SSS Wednesday & SSS Work It Wednesday.

Next is a Christmas card I've had in mind since I entered Betsy's PTI MIM Ombre Watercolor Backgrounds with this Thanksgiving card.
Previous Card
Decided to use it for PTI Transformation Tuesday & MIM Repeating the Greeting
New Card
The stamps are Spruce & Sprigs and the inks are Ocean Tides, Hawaiian Shores & Aqua Mist.  Love that I ended up with a one layer card.  The sentiment is from PTI Peaceful Poinsettia.  The lighter ones stamped twice in Aqua Mist are quite visible in person, even though it doesn't look like it in the photo. 

I wanted some sparkle, so spritzed heavily with Tsukineko Sparkle mist--just gorgeous!  I'm also entering ModSquad, SSS Wednesday & Rudolph Days.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  14. You have so many skills in your repertoire Greta and this trio of cards shows them to perfection. I especially like the water colour style of the first card. The ombre style of the second and third cards is so versatile and what a bonus that they are flat for posting. It's always inspiring to see what you've been creating. TFS
