Jingle Bells

Hello everyone,

Today the lovely and talented Nellie is hosting the Challenge and as a theme she chose: 'Quick & easy Christmas Card. Well I have to tell you I don't really do quick and easy.... but I gave it my best shot and here it is:

Here is a close up of the snow flake...

I started with stamping the snowflake and colouring it with pencils in very light turquoises. I then glued on the seed beads. Next I cut a white panel and a blue glitter panel to go on a white card base. After I glued on the panels I glued on the snowflake. Lastly I stamped the sentiment which says : Jingle your own damn bells!,  but I used only the words Jingle and bells, cut them out, inked the edges with Broken China distress ink and glued them on as well.

I used two stamps for this:

Why not play along with us this week; you could win one of two $30 vouchers. Just remember, only one entry per person per challenge and no digi's. 

Thank you for stopping by today ! 


  1. Since turquoise is one of my favorite colors AND my birthstone, I love your card, Corrie. Those seed beads totally make the snowflake!

  2. Nee inderdaad, quick en easy zijn we van jou niet gewoon ! Wel erg geslaagd hoor Corrie !

  3. That looks like a boat load of fussy cutting, Corrie, but it is totally worth every second it took! I also applaud you for cleaning up your sentiment and making such a lovely card! Ha! Nicely done. Merry Christmas to you, my friend!

  4. Leuk, eenvoudig en strak Corrie,
    Ik vind 'm mooi!

  5. I love this, what a beautiful snowflake and the seed beads are a very lovely touch.

  6. Super strak en ziet er idd supersnel uit! Groetjes, Gerrina

  7. Delightfully simplistic and just gorgeous! xx

  8. Prachtig Corrie, leuk die kraaltjes als extra accent!

  9. I sometimes wish I could manage quick and easy (have spent a lot of today getting cross with a very complicated creation!). I love your sparkly snowflake, and I think you've done a good job with the theme!

  10. A really lovely card Corrie, I find quick and easy difficult too, but this is fab! Have a fab weekend xx

  11. Corrie, I can relate because I struggle with quick cards, that is why I challenge myself to submit to Take Ten! When it comes to Christmas card designs I have never found a way to create quickly.
    This card is striking and so fresh, I love this idea of a single snowflake. I should use your card as inspiration for Christmas 2016.
