If You Give a Crafter a Cookie Nov. 28 #131

What a fun cookie photo for inspiration!

I chose a couple Unity itty bitty's for my creation and a Stamping Up! sentiment. For the sketch, I used SCS SC777. I struggled with this and in the end, made the card 61/2 x 5. I used an embossing folder for the green strips and the snowmen and sentiment were stamped on watercolor paper and the images were watercolored. I had to add a button and twine to finish it off.

Have a great weekend and head on over to If You Give a Crafter a Cookie to play!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Christmas Ornaments with Anthony's Paper Craft

Happy Thursday! I hope this day finds everyone warm and happy...and looking forward to the weekend!
It is my turn to share some Christmas goodness from Anthony's Paper Craft!
My first card I used Ornament Set 3 and Christmas Sentiments 1.
I stamped the ornament using my Misti in always artichoke and then added real red highlights to it.
The sentiment was stamped in always artichoke, too. I distressed the edges of the image and sentiment and sponged with early espresso. 

My second card I used the Oval Ornament. I used the misti to stamp in black and colored in with a purple and a purpley-pink.  I distressed the edges a bit and sponged some Palette purple sachet. Next, I put 3 layer of clear embossing powder on the image. I ran the purple layer through the cuttlebug with a Darice snowflake embossing folder and added some hologram highlights embossing powder to the raised snowflakes.....I was going for a vintage, distressed look. 
Head on over to Anthony's Paper Craft and get yourself some fabulous Christmas stamps!
