Bente's December farewell

Hi there friends.
Today is my last post here on the Blue Fern Studios blog, but it's definitely not the last 
time you'll see me creating with these gorgeous products. 
So we won't say Goodbye but instead Au Revoir. :-)

Today I have a  couple of pages and some cards to share .

For my first page I picked one of the pretty new papers from the  Vintage Christmas collection.

I also have some close ups of the details:

I used the Petal embossing enamel to treat my chipboards. That gorgeous round piece is called Twilight Garden Frame. I gave the Shabby snowflake (part of a set) the same treatment. 
I love the look of those tiny half pearls that I added to it!

On my background I used the Winter Mint and Cotton Candy Imagine Ink mists. I also used gesso and microbeads as well as a few paints.

For a title I used one of the designs on the Christmas cards sheet together with the word Christmas from one of the bottom strips.

I love the look of the strict stripes with the soft colourful blooms.

On my next page you'll see a familiar face :-)  
(Yup that's me  in one of the rare photos of me that I like. :-D, I know I've scrapped it a couple
 of times already LOL)

I used the Juliannas Dream paper from the magical Ombre Dreams collection
Such a beautiful and feminine collection, and so versatile too! I always love the combination of yellow with purple. I can't say why I love it so, except I find it sooo,sooo pretty!

And even here I have close ups to share:

I painted most of my chipboard pieces purple and gave them a lick of gesso on top to make them a bit more shabby.The Chained Bits look great here down the side of my photo. They are a good background for layering any kind of embellishment.

The Timeless Floral corner adds so much to a page. It's so great because you can turn it
any way you want so it will work in any corner 

I wanted a title thet was not too overpowering so I went with a single chipboard word that I painted and clear embossed. 

I added a some punched and die cut greenery as well.

And to round things off I have a couple of simple Christmas cards that I'd like to share with you.

The first one I made with one of the cards from the Christmas card sheet and added the bottom strip from a sheet down the sides. I used the Petal embossingpowder again.
The Framed Winter words are perfect for a card front.

On my second card you can see that even other non-christmassy collections can be used for seasonal cards. My background here is from the Montage collection, but the top sentiment is from the
Vintage Christmas collection of course. I added some bits from the Chain link 
chipboard panel that I painted a dark red. I used a little of the Cotton Candy Imagine Ink
on the background and  a stencil on top.

That was all from me! I want to a big THANK YOU to Leslie and Valerie for having me.
It's been a pleasure!!

I hope you all have a wonderful peaceful Christmas time wether you celebrate or not.
Merry Christmas and Peace on Earth!
