Roses on a Snowflake Ornament

I wanted a spectacular tag for this gift, for a special person in my life. I tied up the package with Jute Twine that I had left over from last years Holiday Catalog. Its long retired, but it was perfect for my gift.

The Snow is Glistening and Snowfall Thinlits are only available until November 30th (or while supplies last), so I knew I wanted to use that big snowflake. I die cut it 4 times, once with Gold Foil (it matched my wrapping paper) and 3 times from Garden Green Cardstock, (it also matches my paper). I carefully glued each layer together ending up with the Gold Foil Snowflake on top. I used Tombow Adhesive, a little goes a long way.

Next I die cut the Stitched Labels, one of the large labels, and two of the circles (all in the Stitched Labels set) in Cherry Cobbler. Directions for these flowers are on this post. 

Before I spritzed Champagne Shimmer paint and Rubbing Alcohol on the flowers I sponged the flowers with Cherry Cobbler Ink. Use hot glue to attach the flowers. The leaves are also from the Snowfall Thinlits. I just tucked them under the flowers along with the sentiment. I added a Linen Thread bow, and used Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine from the Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine. Sadly this is no longer available, but you could also use Linen Thread or Nature’s Twine.

Brusho Meets Beauty Abounds Bundle

I’m very late in posting today. We had a very lovely Thanksgiving Holiday. My grandkids came over and helped me decorate our house, we went and made cookies with our dear friends. My heart is happy!

Today I had to tweak a few decorations and finish up decorating. Feels good to have that part of the holiday done.

Now I’m going to show you a “sneak” peak from the Occasions Catalog. The first one is a birthday card for my friend. The second one I gave to my other friend. She made me a beautiful Pineapple Quilted Pillow. I started off using Moss Green & Prussian Blue onto wet Water Color Paper. I love these two colors when they blend. They are almost a perfect match to Tranquil Tide.

After the Watercolor Paper dried, (I helped it along with my Heat Tool) I die cut this beautiful spray of Butterflies. Aren’t they beautiful from the Brusho Water Color Paper?

You really don’t need to do much. I used Tombow Liquid Adhesive to adhere the spray of butterflies (its all one piece). Added the Tranquil Tide Mini ruffled ribbon and a few Clear & Frosted Droplets. The sentiment I punched with the Classic Label Punch.

Now these butterflies are from the same Thinlits, more of an outline, but stunning just the same. I love the sentiment. Our FRIENDSHIP isn’t one big thing, (On the inside it says), It’s a MILLION little things. I’ve known Lynne and Cindy for over 30 years. I treasure our friendship so this sentiment was perfect for my card.

So do you decorate the inside of your cards? I do if I’m using a dark color for my card base. I usually just add Whisper White or Very Vanilla and stamp something from the same stamp set. I also try and remember to stamp on my envelope.

I used 2″ & 2 1/4″ Circle Punches for the sentiment.

This bundle will be available on January 3rd and features Stampin’ Up! Cling Stamps. OMG, they stick to your blocks or Stamparatus like NEVER before. They are amazing.

Cutting Guide:

4″ x 5 1/4″ Tranquil Tide cardstock
