Come to Bethlehem

So I looked on-line for samples of this stamp set because I really didn't know what to do with it. After taking ideas from samples I liked I came up with this one. I ended up making 50 of these for my sweet mother-in-law. I hope she likes them.

I also made an ornament for my tree. I would like to make a tree with all decoration I made with Stampin' Up! that would be cool. If only I had the time. Next year I will try.

For my technique I used not quite navy craft ink and iridescent ice embossing powder. I also got to use the jewel basic rhinestones which is totally cool.

Now maybe somebody will be inspired by my sample.

christmas banner

As I was hanging and restyling my garland I realized it needed something else. I thought I need a banner. So I created this believe banner. It's so perfect I love it.
I probably need to adjust the spacing but it's fine for now.
I used stampin up paper and my favorite sugar coded gittler paper from doodlebug for the letters. I also used Memories Mists Bright Gold to give it the extra bling. I think I'll make some of these for craft shows next year.

Peace - Tracy
