Absolutely NO STAMPING!!!!!

Hello dear friends: It's not often that I make a card where I don't stamp at all, as a matter of fact, I don't think I've ever made one so, when I saw the challenge over at Time Out Challenges with a theme of HOLIDAYS with the optional twist of NO STAMPING I jumped in plus, my dear friend Aileen Ryan from  Color and Sparkle is the Guest Designer this week, here is my card.


I tried to take a picture in that little corner by my window where I always do it but the light was shining way to much on the foil paper I used to die cut this baubles so I grabbed some pattern paper and put it flat on my desk and put the card on top, with only the light of the lamp, this worked so much better and now you can see how this ornaments shine. 
They are from Memory box and you can cut them in different colors and interchange the little pieces like I did here, it's a bit difficult because each piece has it's proper place, if you try to put it where it doesn't belong, it wont fit, just like a puzzle. 
The "branches" were cut with this pretty die that has a flower in the center and the two flourishes on either side, so I die cut only the flourishes with green foil paper. The sentiment is from Penny Black and the set is called "Love and Joy".
Here is a picture of the finished inside, also with NO STAMPING.


I die cut this word with silver foil paper and decided not to add any layers of card stock, I think it looks really nice just like it is.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
Dies I used on my card.

  3. Those baubles almost look real cut in the foil paper - what a great way to use the flourish die!

  4. Thank you Claire, I love this little bauble die, I've used it several times but I want to get others, they are so delicate and so beautiful. I was going to just put the baubles "hanging" from a line done with a gold gel pen but then I remember this flourish die, I think it looks so much better.

  7. Thank you Gerrina, it was fun to create a card with only dies. On the inside of my card, I wanted to stamp a sentiment but decided to just die cut the word JOY.
