Fabric Ornament, Broach or Something!

The Candlelight Christmas Fabric is gorgeous!  I made some ornaments or broaches out of it.  This would work for any of our fabrics however.  Just so beautiful.

This invovles a bunch of hotglueing!   The tulle was handstitched and then pulled together.  I think it could use some crochet trim.  We do sell that.  Erin (daughter) makes crochet lace.  She whipped these up over the weekend.  Aren't they just gorgeous! 
I think I need some of that.  
I have posted several blog posts today, so keep scrolling down.

Continue having a great day!


Ex Libris

Love, love, love this background stamp.  It is Ex Libris and I have paired it with From My Heart.  I inked Ex Libris with Crumb Cake, sponged over that with some Primrose Petals and then stamped it.  I LOVE that look.  Then I sponged and spritzed with the Color Spritzer Tool.  The stamp used from From My Heart is inked in Soft Suede and then a blender pen using Crumb Cake to color.

Core'dinations Watercolor Winter

This is one of my favorite sets out of the Holiday Mini.  I love 2-step stampin' and rock n roll is my favorite technique.  I know!  That is an old technique, but I just love it.  The Core'dinations cardstock is another favorite with the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder as well as the Delicate Designs Folders with the Large Scallop Edgelits.  Those line up together!  How cool is that.  A perfectly cut edge.

Snowflake Illuminate Free for All Catalog Focus

I stamped with some new stuff today and used some challenges to keep me focused.  The Free for All Challenge was Ombre.  It means shaded.  One color that changes into another.  I did that on the main snowflake.  The center is Early Espresso then Crumb Cake and the edges are Marina Mist.  Isn't it pretty?  I love it!  The Creative Crew challenge I used was the August Catalog Focus.  That was to use brads.  I also wanted to use the new Illuminate Glimmer Watermark Stamp Pad.  That is on the side panel and on the main snowflake piece.  You will have to click on the picture for a closeup to see it.  Really pretty!

Stamp Set:  Snowflake Soiree
Ink:  Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, Illuminate Glimmer Watermark
Cardstock:  Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, Early Espresso Core'dinations, Shimmery White
