I`m in such a moode to create for christmas already, so I
will show you a few more cards .

The first one on recycled cardboard is kept in the nature tones,
of cardboard, sepia and white, with a touch of silver !!

I used a snowflake stencil and plaster on the background,
and a little music tissue paper,-- crumpled papers behind the image, to
give the 3-d effect, a little lace and the cross !!

This is stamped with the beautiful stamps from  Artistic Outpost,
which are so lovely I think, I coloured the stamps after with watercolours!

Also here I added the magic of glitter, a little snow and the sweet image, which
I don`t remember where I got!!! Maybe some of you knows ? The big star is a 
die-cut and the smaller ones punshed out !!

How about you, have you started creating something for christmas ? 
I is so enjoyable this year ,for me, as I don`t have to create for my shop !!

Have a wonderful week, and see you soon !!

Hugs and love

Søde jule kort, ja, jeg går lidt rundt om julekortene (som katten om den varme grød) gider ikke rigtig, men så ser man em masse flotte på nettet, og så trækker det lidt i de kreative gener, som du sikkert forstår. knus morkaren. p.s. har du lukket den netbutik?

Hi Dorthe, I could never tire of seeing your gorgeous cards. I love the details you add to make each one so special. I love natural tones too and anyone would love to receive such a gorgeous card to keep forever.
I have started many projects for my etsy shoppe and the holiday too and this year I plan to paint my Christmas cards to send.

Wishing you wonderful last days of October and Happy Creating.
Hugs and Blessings xo

How glorious to see your Christmas cards you are creating. Each one is divine Dorthe Dear. Creative Christmas Bliss...

The cards are beautiful, dearest Dorthe. I especially love the second one. You make me want to create some Christmas cards too but I still don't have time to create anything and I have withdrawel symptoms. Hopefully I can sit down and make something soon.
Have a lovely day, sweetie :)!
Sending love and big hugs to you,

You ask if we can tolerate another Christmas card? How modest of you, my sweet Dorthe... I want more and more and more of them! You give me the feeling of Christmas in October, which may be a bit early... But who can fight against one of the best moods of the whole year? Your images are so stimulating, that only looking at your cards made my daughter and me wish to listen to Christmas music already (which we did the whole day yesterday, hihi). Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful spirit, dear friend! But you have already enlightened my soul today when I saw your beautiful sea angel on Suzy's blog? Your generosity is soul touching and this spirit of support and friendship for others is the most inspiring feature leading above all creativity and artistic ability. It is the heart which is the source for all that beauty and it can be seen in all your creations! I am proud to count you as a kindred soul, sweet Dorthe! Happy to have you!
Warm hugs from Manu

So gorgeous dear Dorthe! The first one is stunning. Beautiful colour combination and that precious image, the white snowflakes and the beautiful cross... And the second card is so gorgeous too, very cozy Christmas scene. Won't you just love to be in a place like that for real?
Happy to hear you're having so much fun creating Christmas cards. I haven't done anything for Christmas yet...
Wishing you a beautiful day and sending you hugs

I wish I could be right there with you and a big pile of glitter. After we move I will slow down and make some art, need to feel the muse again. Beautiful and heartfelt work. xox

These are very pretty Christmas Cards Dorthe. We have very hot weather in Australia at Christmas, but the snow is so pretty.
I have only made 30 cards so far. I am waiting for long hot days and then create for next year.

They are so beautiful, brimming over with nostalgia.
Gorgeous use of the stencil and Dorthe, WOW, the Artistic Outpost stamps look so beautiful on your card.
Please, keep them coming my friend.
It is a dark and wet day in my little corner of the world. I am trying to organise my new printer - maybe I told you that my printer decided to retire. It had served me well, the only printer I had every owned. Anyway, I must finishing organising this.
Enjoy your day

Hello my sweet Dorthe,
I'm thrilled to see you continue with the creation of your beautiful Christmas cards. Such a wonderful idea using recycled cardboard, music paper and scrunched paper as well as the snowflake template on the first one to enhance your beautiful Christmas image. The second one is gorgeous too using watercolors on the stamping. Oh that dear reindeer!
I would love one day to experience a Christmas with snow - the total opposite here in Australia but it all feels to beautiful!
Sweet dreams sweet friend,
Loving hugs,

these are such beautiful Christmas cards you have created.
You are preparing early for Christmas, which is how we all want to be.
I seem to be last minute with everything these days.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend and lots of creating dear Dorthe.

Your cards are unique and beautiful, Dorthe. Do you make all the cards you give, or just make ones for the special people in your life? Such wintry wonders.....

Jillayne said...

What lovely cards Dorthe - they're so delightful! I love the one with the deer - it's like a wonderful winter wonderland - such joy, on your beautiful cards... you will enjoy sending these out I think, but your friends and family will be so happy to receive them.
Wonderful creations Dorthe.

Warm, winter hugs from jillayne

I can always tolerate Christmas cards when they're as pretty as this! Such lovely vintage neutrals, and your watercolouring on the AO images is just wonderful!
