Hi everyone! I have a vintage looking ornament or use it as a tag to share first today.
I started by covering a piece of natural cardstock with the NEW Memory Box Twas the Night Wide Washi Tape and then die cutting the piece with the largest star die from the NEW Memory Box Shining Star die set. I die cut another star the same color and glued them together with a gold cord sandwiched between for hanging.
Then I inked it all over with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and the mini ink blending tool. The tape kinda resisted it but it did color it enough to suit me.
I took my Krylon 18K Gold paint pen and went around the edges of the star with it.
I die cut the poppystamps Home For The Holidays wreath die in green cardstock and edged it with the same ink, Added Nuvo Red Berry drops to the berries and when they were dry went back with a little Ranger Christmas Stickles over the top.
I die cut the Memory Box Merry Christmas Noted Script dies from Gold metallic cardstock twice and glued them together.
Glue everything together and then spatter with gold ink. I used the Heidi Swapp Gold Spray this time. Add a bow!
Next up, a Whittle card…
A few words of encouragement for the season… we need it! lol
I hope this Monday finds you ‘hanging in there’! eek! It’s a busy time of year!
Here I did some die cutting, inking (same gathered twigs Distress ink, it’s always on my desk), a little Copic coloring on the bricks, Nuvo drops on the berries and gluing! Oh, I masked off the area inside the fireplace and ink blended Black Soot Oxide on the cardbase and spattered it… oops. it got everywhere and you can’t even tell I spattered the area I wanted spattered! lol
Santa’s cute…maybe he’s praying! lol He’s in a situation!
A smile to start your Monday. A cute card for Christmas!

Love your card, but girl…that ornament rocks my world! I have a ton of your ‘older’ tags saved, and this makes me think of them. Beautifully done!!! Happy Thanksgiving!

Wow-love the star!!! I have been looking for that wide washi tape-guess I will have to order it!!
The fireplace card is adorable too.
Wait… I was all totally awe struck by the gorgeous ornament and then I scrolled down and got a good look at your fireplace card — OMG! Santa is adorable, but that mouse, too… and you made a mirror! The log in the fireplace… geez, some of these details I didn’t notice on IG. That’s why I love to come here. So much fun!
Two more awesome cards! Love the wide washi and gold accents; but your santa in the fireplace card is too cute, especially the “mirror” above the mantle!
That ornament is so pretty! Love it! I’ve never thought of using my different shape dies to create ornaments! Awesome idea! That card is so cute with Santa peeking out of the fireplace! Love it!
