Christmas Ornament

Happy Monday!
We are getting closer to christmas every day, and today I have a couple of Christmas Ornaments to share! No stamps used, just Spellbinders dies and some bling:)

I used the 2010 Snowflake Pendants template along with a Lacey Circle die. I used the snowflake die as a stencil and sponged them with pink/teal ink to make them match the background a bit:)

And just a little note about my last card, Autumn Chair: I`ve had questions about the name of the Cuttlebug embossing folder I used, and have finally figured out what It`s called: Heritage! It comes in a set of four folders:)

As always, thanks so much for taking the time to stop by!

Autumn Chair

It`s really starting to feel like fall...and what a beautiful season! I love all the amazing colors in the leaves and the fresh, crisp air! So I have an autumn card to share today, using one of the new stamps from Serendipity. It`s called Autumn Chair.

I colored the image with Rangers Distress Inks, as usual, and aged it a bit with some sponging. The Cuttlebug embossing folder frame I`ve used for this card is so beautiful, and so I wanted to keep the embellishments and layout very simple...

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!

Supplies: Stamps: Autumn chair by Serendipity, Archival Ink Jet Black, Rangers Distress Inks, Cuttlebug embossingfolder, pearls, ribbon, On the vine borderabilities by Spellbinders.

Rustic Beauty!

Welcome to the Bring Back Beautiful challenge for September!
As the leaves start to change colors to usher in fall, we want to see your rustic beauty. Interpret this challenge however you like – want to use a little distressing? Want to use shades of rust? Want to use things that look aged or antiqued? You choose! Just make sure the end result has a rustic feel to it!

I chose to create a set of tiny cards for this challenge. I just love to make tiny cards! I used the Cherry Blossoms stamp set, and did the coloring with Rangers Distress Ink.
To give them a rustic feel, I used Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles. I also did a lot of sponging and some hand-stitching to finish them off.
