Twisted Thursday cards

A Little Tree 2014
The Twisted Thursday challenge over at the Outlawz has started and I want to show you what I have created, I have to say I’m sorry (again) for not getting them out right away but we have had some not so good things happen and I really do not want to get into to it and I really do not think you want to be upset and I know that is what it will do. So we will talk about creating cards but this is a tag… I seen this image and I just fell in love with it, I think it is adorable it is one by Aurora Wings and it is called  Christmas Tree Spirit with a Gingerbread man. It was so much fun to color and add some decorations to it and to make it 3D. That is our Twist for this challenge WINTER SPARKLES AT CHRISTMAS.

Not sure if you can see but I added Martha Steward train edger across the tag.  The paper I used is from DCWV winter solstice stack. I loved the blue so I added blue and diamond gems.

These tags are so much fun. Have you seen the tags over at the Ellen Huston Blog they are having the 12 days of Christmas tags going on. I just love most of the tags, I really love Day 7 Paula Cheney, Day 9 Teri Anderson, Day 10 Sharon Harnist, Day 4 Kittie Caracciolo, oh my I could go on and on I guess I love all of them. Why do you check for yourself.
This is what is called a Tent card. The sentiment is called MERRY CHRISTMAS HOLLY #2 and the ornaments CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT #1  are from Stitchy Bear.

     Whispering trees 2014  r
I printed out the image and the inks I used for the background are Marvy Matchable colors salvia blue, pale orange, sunshine, azure seas, green green. I punched out a 1 inch circle and put it where I wanted the sun to be. I used Eclipse paper for that. Love the paper it always works so good.
Whispering trees 2014  l
I used some thick paper and made a a line across the paper where I wanted to have the darkness horizon and from their I added the sunshine and a little of the peach. Once the sky was done I removed the circle and added more sunshine color.  
Whispering trees 2014  i
This card is really easy to make and I would of loved to have added something more to the inside and I think I will, but I have not been feeling very good so I have been taking it easy so the inside really has nothing special. I will chance that.

These darling tiny flower are from cherry lyn designs called tiny flower kit B376. They are so much fun to use.
