Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko Ornament Exchange Received!

So told you about the Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko ornament that I created (see it here) whose recipient is different than the person you receive from.  Well this is the very cool one I received. 

The only thing that was inside with it was John Creighton Peterson's business card, so I guess he had a hand in making it!  Thanks so much John.  See you at CHA!It arrived flat and then fanned out.
So pretty!

Basket of Snowflakes Gift Tag

Here is a little gift tag.  I was working on some mind-numbing computer thing and this came out when my hands were free!  Of course I had to be at the computer to cut the digital files! (I think they were cutting as I was doing something else...)

The tag is the new Basket of Snowflakes available at the Silhouette Online Store.

The basket of snowflakes was enlarged a bit, but it probably didn't have to be.  Stick with a solid light colour when cutting the basket if you don't want to fuss with an additional "insert" that can be written on.

Here are the thumbnail links to the products. The bow is ribbon from my personal stash.
Thanks for having a look today!

Season's Greetings

I've been wanting to squeeze in some time to play with the Spellbinders Gold Elements on a Christmas card.  Here is what evolved.

Sorry, I didn't do so well getting the embossing to show up, but you can see it a bit better in the detail photos below.

This was really very simple and you can embellish it with anything you like.

You just have to use stamp your sentiment, lay your rings around the sentiment and use Removable tape to hold the rings in place. Run it through your Grand Calibur, trim the cardstock and back it with a contrasting colour and that's about it.  Embellish with what you have!
The thumbnail links to the products I used are below.

Happy creating!
Thanks for dropping by.

All Hearts Come Home for Christmas

I just adore these little dresses!  I made this card many months ago and I'm so glad I didn't forget it! One of the cards that I made for the current issue of Paper Creations Magazine used hand-dyed wool felt for a poinsettia and the felt was still out.... so.....

All of the dresses were cut from hand-dyed felt (no, I did not do the felting or dyeing!).  It seems like a little bit of everything went on this card.  How you change these little dresses - well, the possibilities are endless!  I think they'll be little spring dresses next.

Here are some close-ups. I used the little Spellbinders Holly Accents ornament (S5-056 - Quietfire is sold out of this die, so please go directly to Spellbinders) as sort of a hanger for each dress.  The "trim" on the middle dress is Snow-Tex.  The brass charms are embellished with 4-Ply Waxed Linen Thread in Olive, White and Country Red.

Hmmm, I think this card is a keeper!

Thanks for having a look! I hope all your hearts are home for a warm and loving Christmas.
