Day 4 of Inspired by Kristina Werner with Joy Taylor

Hello again dear friends.

Today is the final day we'll be bringing our Inspired by Kristina Werner week to you. I'm so sad it's over already. 

We thought we'd mix things up a little today, and bring you two cards!

For this first one, Joy and I chose the same card to be inspired by (as always) and the second card, we drew a number out of a hat, so we'll be showing you two totally different cards (as they're inspired by different cards that Kristina made--hope that makes sense!)

Here is the card Kristina made on Day 18

Ummm, hello gorgeous?!

Here is my take:

Every year I like to mix up my Christmas colour-theme, so apparently this year I'm going with pink! lol. 
I used the diecut that Kristina offered for sale on her blog and printed it out on my Silhouette machine. Then I temporarily adhered it to the card and spritzed over the top with Mr Huey's Calico White. I LOVE the effect.
 It's amazingly crisp.
I added a little glittery star to dot the i.
 A tiny bit of Ali Edwards awesomeness to finish the card off with a sentiment!

I love this great pink bow!!

Here are the products I used:


And here is card #2!

I drew out 'day 12' from the hat, which is this card by Kristina

 I really like what Kristina did with this card. So elegant and understated.

Here is mine:
 I wanted a combination of elegance and fun with this card.
I wanted to use glitter on the Hero Arts flourish but didn't have any of the special 'glue' that Kristina used, so I improvised. As you can see in the photo below, I mixed some Doodlebug glitter in with some AC Aqua Zing Embossing powder. I really like the effect!

The steps for this card are pretty self explanatory, but if you have any questions, PLEASE feel free to ask in the comments below!

Here are the products I used:


as well as white cardstock, ribbon from my stash and a paper doily!

And that's it for me! Thank you so much for coming by my little piece of bloggy-paradise and seeing what I've made!  

Now come on over to Joy's blog with me. I can't wait to see what she's come up with (genius I'm sure!)

Take care and may your days be filled with glittery magic!
