Swirly Christmas

Here is a Christmas card I put together using Unity stamps. The ornament is actually a portion of a larger stamp. I put tape over the portions I didn't want to ink and then inked it up. I removed the tape and then stamped the image.

After coloring the image with Koh-i-noor pencils, I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I sponged the background with Real Red ink.

The swirl is from a set called Growing in Unity and the sentiment & angel are from Bitty Christmas Tags. The Sateen Flowers in the corner are from Gina K and the Martha Stewart leaf punch is from Michaels.


Here is a Christmas tag I made yesterday. Do you ever have a love/hate relationship with a project? When I first completed this tag, I thought it was ok, but as I was typing up my blog post yesterday, I decided it wasn't blog worthy. Today, I decided it was good enough to show you, but not worthy of it's own post. LOL.

I sponged the background and embossed the sentiment. The candy cane was colored with Koh-i-noor pencils and cut out.

Thanks for visiting.

Have a great day!

Theresa, that tag is wonderful! I can relate to the love/hate relationship with a project... although I tend to end of disliking most of my stuff. BTW, I really like what you did with the leaf punch on both projects! Beautiful accents!

Theresa: I really like your unworthy tag. You are a very funny girl. I don't think you can make anything that is unworthy to show us.

Toni K said...

Most definitely blogworthy! I understand though. I sometimes feel the same way. You'll look back and probably change your mind again. They are both gorgeous!

In addition, the ornament, angel, and the flowers on your square card are really beautiful too!

These are both gorgeous!! and I hope Gina doesn't get mad, but I found a whole tin of these at Michael's for $5.99 and when used with a 40 or 50% off coupon, quite the steal!!
