Bauble ornament tutorial

The lovely Denise at Whimsy Stamps asked me if I would do a tutorial on how I make the ornaments I have been churning out lately.  She sent me some of the divine clear Christmas Greetings stamp set to play with, and this is what I came up with.  Just to say ….. I flipping love this stamp set! 


And the back with place to write a greeting


The tutorial is featured on Craft Ideas complete with step by step photos.

Another quick Christmas card

Here’a another quick Christmas card I whipped up yesterday afternoon using those delectable Christmas Chalkboards 1 stamps.  This time I kept away from the black chalkboard look and instead embossed the text onto matching paper from the pad that I used.


Unfortunately I covered up most of the delish vintage patterned paper but a girl has to have her Wild Orchid Crafts flowers lol.  I used 25mm wild rose, open roses (15mm), cosmos daisies and stamens. I finished off with some pearls, pins  and vintage seam binding that I distressed with ink.


Back later on in the week with another bauble and a link to a tutorial that I did for Whimsy Stamps.
