Christmassy Friday - BNW DT

Hi Everyone And A Happy Friday - even if it is Friday the 13th...LOL! Are you superstitious? Well in some cases I am but not with Friday the 13th! :-)

The card I am showing you today is a Christmas card...yes Christmas in August! I try to get started on my Christmas cards early this year. What about you? Did you already get a head start on your cards as well?  So I thought I make it a Christmassy Friday here :-) I actually have this card done quite a few days but due to a lot of  mishaps and me having a terrible headache for 3 days I was not able to show it earlier....phew sometimes everything happens together.

I used the lovely stamp 'Two Turtle Doves' from last years Belles 'n Whistles Christmas collectin for my card and colored her using my Coipcs.

The DP I've used is from last years Basic Grey's Christmas collection.

Here is a close up on the image. I also did some airbrushing it. I really love the color combinations on the design paper and had so much fun coloring my image accordingly! Something different than the usual Christmas colors!

The swirls are cut out using the new Magnolia Doo Hickey swirl dies.

It was the first time I used my Spellbinders star die, I bought it last year in an after Christmas sale. The Snowflakes are MS punches. The sentiment is from  MS as well, it's a clear stamp set .Stickles I've used are Star Dust, Platinum and Patina.

Copics I've used:

So, I hope you liked my little trip into an early Christmas time and I wish you all a great start into a fabulous weekend! 



  1. Hallo Iris,
    Was für eine wundervolle Weihnachtskarte. Gefällt mir wircklich super und erst diese Farben. Super wie du das Bild bemalt hast, das Motiv habe ich noch nie gesehen.
    Dank noch für deinen lieben Kommentar für meine letzte Karte.

    Übrigens, Freitag der 13. ist wohl mein Glückstag, ich habe zum ersten mal ein Candy gewonnen :)

    Lieber Gruss

  2. Wowww Iris this is really gorgeous! Love the details you put on your card!
    Hugs Kristel

  3. WHAT a stunner Iris!! I love your card. It has the most gorgeous detail and your colouring is brilliant.

  4. Iris, die Karte ist sooooooo zauberhaft. Ich bin ganz von den Socken.

    Ich habe dieses Basic Grey-Papier auch und konnte es bisher kaum verwenden, weil ich keine passende Kombi fand. Du hast es sooo traumhaft verarbeitet und dieses Motiv ist einfach nur zum Niederknien.
    Ich bin schlichtweg nur begeistert.

    Liebe Grüße

  5. Gorgeous Card. I love the colors and the swirls. Such a sweet image and perfectly colored.


  6. Awwwww, this is fantastic!!! Love last years collections of BG and bnw, gorgeous colours and embellies. I have a couple cards made, I'd like to keep up the momentum so that when Christmas comes around I wont buckle under the stress, lol!!
    hugs, stephanne

  7. Iris, what a lovely card and your coloring is absolutely stunning.
    Eine ueberaus gelungene Kreation.


Thanks so much for taking the time and leaving me some love! It's greatly appreciated and just made my day! :-)
