I was very busy crafting. Below are some of the results of some new Tim Holtz dies and the famous Stampin' Up! Christmas ornament shown on the cover of the holiday catalog...with my own twist.
The first picture is the ornament. I added half rosettes in between the petals and finished with a pre purchased gold star and a large smokey gem in the middle. You still use 20 each of the two ornaments. I just arranged them differently. It needs some tweaking but not bad for a first effort.
The next picture shows the new Tim Holtz Snowflake Rosettes. These were a little fiddly but worth the effort. I did two in Whisper White and two in Ivory. Stickles along the edge and a button and pearls in the middle. At CHA, they showed these snowflakes made into a whole wreath of just the snowflakes accented with silver and it was gorgeous! Can you imagine a small tree full of these!
Lastly is the Tim Holtz poinsettia. I made it up three ways. One was just on very thin newsprint type paper with distress inks for color. Next was one with DP. and finally one with glittered and metallic paper and I really like this. So many ways you could go with these. I used stickles and perfect pearls in the center and dimensionals between the layers. I'll use these on cards and packages.
If you are north of Maryland and you survived the storm let us know with a comment. NJ and NY and points north really got hit bad. God's grace will get you through this.
