Loving your silver, gold and winter white ornaments! I have a December wedding coming up and they would be perfect on a card for the bridal couple!!


Of course I always love your work, but your silver, white and gold combination is over the top beautiful.


Omg Melis! You know I new this was your card before I even saw your name on the papertrey ink blog, I swear. All so beautiful but I have to tell you the first card is my fav. That's all the colors on my Christmas tree, I just love that color combo. Every ornament I own is one of those three colors, I love that old vintage feel. When the lights are on they bounce off the silver and gold making the tree even more glimmery. Thanks for sharing and always inspiring.

Ok, Melissa, you're officially an enabler! Your heart ornament made me add the Woven Heart die to my list! I'm sure to not be on my DH's nice list after this order! LOL! The silver/gold/white ornament card is Stunning and I love how you backed the ornaments with glitter paper!


The cards are reminiscent of vintage ornaments that my parents had when I was growing up. Your cards are so elegant and you always put such a special touch on all your projects. Beautiful inspiration!

Hi Melissa,

HOLY MAJARETE-Puerto Rican YUMMY Christmas dessert!!!
Your cards and ornament are so BREATHTAKING and AWESOME, I have to thank you for the oodles of inspiration that you have given me throughout these years, the attention to detail, the unusual color combos, the composition, the experimenting with products and things that I did not thought of before you came into the picture, the paper piecing, the gelatos,the stamp combos, but on top of the list you, whispering in my ear...don't be afraid...try it and see if you like it, what is there to loose?
So, in honor of you and your inspiration, I thereby declare today the 14th of September, that these three magnificent creations deserve the second word that I have invented........
without further delay............GORGEOURRIFIC!!!---The fusion of Gorgeous and Terrific,,,,,,,,,and you are welcome,my inspirational friend!

Holy Moly Melissa!! The gold and silver ornaments are INCREDIBLE! I can't take my eyes of that card! So many of your cards just draw you in. You look at it one time and see something and look another time and see something else. So much eye candy! Love. Love. Love them. :)

Seriously, as though I didn't already LOVE the ornament and cedar stamps THIS card put me over the top. NOW I am really bummin' that the dies were gone less than an hour after they went on sale! Hoping to get them in my basket soon.
THANKS so much for the amazing inspiration, Melis!
