Magnolia Edwin and Tilda Christmas Card

Good morning and Merry Christmas to you all!! This is my last post in 2012 and after today's post, I will resume my blog post again in 2013.  Last year I didn't put a tree up due to some family issues, but I am managed to put our tree up earlier this month. So I thought I'll show you our tree.  
Since December is the Christmas' month, I've been so busy making many Winter/Christmas projects.  Here is another Christmas card I made with three stamp images from the Special Sweden Stamps from Magnolia-licious.  As you can the Christmas tree picture above, I like soft coloring for Christmas rather than the traditional green & red.  So I decided to do a non traditional Christmas with some soft coloring.  For the front of this card, I picked Santa Lucia and Starboy Edwin, then I used Tilda with Ribbon Heart Scarp inside this card.  I am also using this card for some challenges.  For challenges info, please scroll down to the bottom of this post.
Here is my finished card

Some Odd Girl Balloon Kaylee Birthday card

I couldn't believe I am posting another card today, lol.  Yep, I did this card up last night, because I couldn't help it to not playing with a new Hexagon die & matching stamp set I bought from Papertrey Ink.  In addition, I inked up this cute Copic colored Some Odd Girl Balloon Kaylee from Oozak, but haven't get a chance to create a card for her, so I got a great excuse to do a card :o)
Here is a Balloon Kaylee birthday card with the background created wih the Hexagon die.

Saturated Canary Let It Snow All white background card

Good morning everyone.  I haven't make an all white background card for a while and when I thought of the month of December, all white is first thing that came to my mind, so I decided to do.  I got some stamps from Oozak and used a Saturated Canary image that I got from them.  Isn't this Wallflower sweet?  I distressed the edges of the under layers with the distressing tool.  Punched out all the dies from Memory Box Dies and Poppy Stamps Dies.  Besides the dies, this card was also used with Martha Stewart punches as well as the Sizzix embossing folders.  Other embellishments I used are Pearls, Stickles & Ribbon

Here is my finished card
I am also using this card for the following challenges:
Made Especially For You - Christmas card with a die cut
Creative Craft Challenges 2 - White on white Christmas
Tuesday Throwdown #126 - White Christmas
Twisted Tuesday Challenge 2TC35 - Winter white snowflakes
Shopping Our Stash Challenge #80 - Winter Holiday or snow/winter theme

Following are some closer view to show you the die cuts:

Here is the window and I added an embossed paper under it to make it like it's snowing outside.
