Hi there blog friends! We are pressing right into Day Three of previews for Waltzingmouse Stamps and I have a couple of super sweet sets to show you. My cards are made using two sets called Santa is Coming to Town and 2011 Holiday Ornaments. They both feature ornaments that match with Spellbinders™ 2011 Heirloom Ornaments. For the first I embossed my ornament with Versafine Vintage and clear embossing powder and colored select portions of the ornament. I mounted it on a card base made from Spellbinders™ Grand Labels Twenty Three (one of my favorites). Lastly I added a row of lace and seam binding but before sewing I tucked the border from Spellbinders™ Lace Doily Accents underneath my lace.
I just love the Bazzill buttons, they’re so spar-ka-lee!! I took a Prima Poinsettia and threaded through it when I added my Bazzill button, just for something a little bit different in the center of my ribbon. This ornament with Santa is already a favorite with me.
The ornaments in the 2011 Holiday Ornaments set are varied and are a good size, so I decided to make a tall card (fits in a size 10 business envelope). I gold embossed each of three ornaments that I cut with Spellbinders™ 2011 Heirloom Ornaments. For the each of the ornaments I attached a Tim Holtz memo pin and threaded seam binding through each loop. The ornaments all hang from the top of the card and I topped it off with a topper made using Spellbinders™ Labels Twenty Three. At the bottom of the card I added a sentiment using Spellbinders™ Ribbon Banners.
