Oh Joy it's Crafting time with Heidi Van Laar!

Hello! Want to see and amazing be of inspiration?

The colors in this are so amazing, and although not typical, I think they are perfect for Christmas! I have a couple of cards to share to show you what I mean.

I broke out my Chip Art tool and some Soul Food papers to create this bright Noel card.

12-11 NOEL

I hand cut the pink poinsettia from some solid colored b sides and added a jeweled brad from the Homespun Chic collection.

More solid colored B side papers from the Material Girl and Ava collections created the bow and wreath that are the focal pint of this card. And lets not forget that big beautiful Homespun Chic bling!

12-11 JOY

Material Girl and Scandia Jul proved the the paper that make up the multi- toned green background and I covered some Chip Art letters in Material Girl paper and added some glitter for holiday sparkle to finish my "JOY"
