I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed it with Ranger's Rose Quartz. I was afraid the color was going to be too pale, but it is readable, so I'm OK with it. The frame for the sentiment is a die-cut oval from Spellbinders' Oval Floral...there wasn't enough room on the card for a fancier frame!
The flowers from my stash are brushed with Ranger's Tea Dye distress ink and I distressed the outside edges of the card itself.
I scrunched the green seam binding and let it dry after I spritzed it with water.
The Leafy Branch die by Impression Obsession was also brushed with Tea Dye distress ink. I think my aunt will like all these touches...she had a huge Victorian home in Northern CA for many years.
In The Garden is the name of the beautiful paper made by Create With Sherri Baldy. Have you ever heard of that company? Hmmm....me neither!
Enjoy your families this weekend and hopefully craft to your heart's content. God bless your time, no matter how you spend it!

Of course, she wore her favorite winter plaid coat to the tree lot!
Most of the Christmas decor is from my Christmas stash...the green ribbon is 1/4" May Arts silk ribbon that I swiped with some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter. The branches are from a candle die set by Elizabeth Craft.
The white fur on the girl's cap and boots is fluffed a little with Snow Marker by Marvy Uchida. You just use it like a marker and then puff it up with a heat tool!
Thanks for looking....see you again soon...God Bless you!

The sentiment stamp is from ODBD's Luke 2:11 and the small poinsettia is a combination of Peaceful Poinsettias and the new Merry Mosaics that fit over the older dies perfectly. Merry Mosaics and the Candle dies were die-cut from silver glitter paper (Christmas Glitter by American Crafts)....love this little 6x6 paper pad that has several glitter-y color choices for Christmas or anytime!
I sponged a bit of distressing with Tea Dye Distress Ink (Ranger).
The green and matching striped paper are from Holy Night (Kaisercraft).
The tiny branches next to the flowers are from the Christmas Candles die (ODBD)...of course they aren't flower leaves, but I thought they gave the flowers a Christmas-y look!
"Joy to the World" is sitting on a Vintage Tag die (Spellbinders).
The candles are framed by one of the Layered Lacy Squares dies (ODBD).
White Tulle, Flowers, White Metallic Thread, Burgundy Pearls--->Stash
May the Lord bless your day and I'll see you again this coming week! Keep crafting!

I used a well-worn stamp set and matching dies for the small poinsettia...Festive Poinsettias (JustRite). I think this set is the "mother" of all poinsettia stamps! I was prompted to make the poinsettia flower after seeing the papers from Painted Poinsettias (6x6 pad by Wild Rose Studio). I love the soft colors of this paper pad...
I was afraid the Razzleberry ink (MFT) I used for the poinsettia would contrast too brightly with the paper, but it doesn't seem too overwhelming...
The wreath stamp by Penny Black is called A Wish for Peace...it was stamped onto the circle with my MISTI (My Sweet Petunia) and colored with Copics.
Branches---> Martha Stewart Branch Punch
Highlights--->Wink of Stella Glitter Pen, White Kirarina Pen
Thread--->Coats and Clark Red Metallic
Metal snowflake and bell--->Christmas stash
Lace--->Venetian Crochet Trim (SU)
Dies--->Double Stitched Circles (MFT), Charming Lace Trim (Creative Expressions)
I distressed the sides of the paper to give it a bit of a shabby look...
Enjoy your weekend! God bless your family time!

The flower was stamped from Botanical Rose and die-cut with Botanical Wings (Heartfelt Creations). The leaves were sponged with Baked Brown Sugar (SU) and the rose was colored with Copics.
Those sweet little baubles in the middle of the flower are called Pearl Prills (US Art Quest). You just squirt in some liquid glue and drop them in!
Dies--->Romantic Rose (Spellbinders), Finishing Touches-Petite Vinery (Creative Expressions)
And last, but not least, the spritzing on the decorative panel is Heidi Swapp's Teal Color Shine Spray. I do NOT spray the color onto the panel! I spray it onto a stamping block, add a little water if it needs to be thinned and use a small paint brush to pick up the color....then I tap on the brush end of the paint brush...lightly.
Thanks for visiting my blog!

I love swirls and flourishes...they just make me feel good! And combine them with Fall colors...Perfect! I separated the pinecones from their original die, attached orange-yellow paper to the back of each one and then sponged with some Gathered Twigs distress ink. The flowers are Sugar Red Minis by Petaloo. They actually do look as though they are sprinkled with some crystal sugar!
The background paper is from a 6x6 pad called Twelve Days of Christmas (Graphic 45) but I thought the color looked more like Fall than Christmas.
Twine--->Harvest Hemp Cord (Hemptique)
Sequins--->Autumn Harvest (PPP)
Dies--->Mini Tags (ODBD), Oval Floral (Spellbinders), Pinecone and Greenery (Memory Box), Pumpkin Patch (Impression Obsession)
The leaf flourish is Verona Flourish by Poppystamps. The original die is actually smaller and has only three leaves...so I die-cut it x2 and added on the other leaves.
