Ornament ATC Trade

Today I want to share my completed trade for an ATC group I have been trading with. My friend Kristy who lives in Florida had invited me to join in on an ATC trade she holds once a month. I have participated for the last 3 months and have had so much fun. this month we were to use an Ornament image to make our trades. I used our stamp set ornament party from the mini catalog.
I just love the little ornament stamp and thought it was a good size for an ATC card. ATC's are 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches and I store them in baseball card sleeves. I stamped them in Denim Days, Huckleberry Fusion, and Catalina Splash. I added our sparkle dust, some twine and Journey Sequins Holiday Elements. I hope you enjoy.

Christmas Gift tags

I can't believe Christmas is just around the corner. My class next Tuesday at This N That Scrapbooking is for gift tags for all those special gifts you will be shopping for soon.  Using our Fun Stampers Journey products you will create the 6 tags.  I used the Journey Blooms Holiday dies and the Snapshot Dies along with the Festive Patterns paper pack.  You can earn a free Festive Patterns Paper Pack with a $50.00 order. Let me know if you want to find out more about earning this paper pack for free.
The Following tag shows how you can use our Journey Glaze and Sparkle Dust to make your own Icicles.  I also added some our our Journey Sequins Holiday Elements to dress this tag up a little.
For the O in Joy I added one of our Round Silver Buttons to Jazz it up a little.  Who doesn't like a little Bling here and there?
For the center of the flowers I added a Rhinestone to the centers with the Journey Glaze and Sparkle Dust.  I also used the piercing elements from the circle dies to create some texture for the background.
For the Trees I did second and third generation stamping to have the different shades of the trees. I also added some color to the nose on the Reindeer to make him Rudolph. I hope you can come to the class to make these tags with us.  Happy Stamping,  Nikki
