Christmas Blessings

This was my second swap for Hilton Head.  I was in 3 groups and brought home 60 swaps! I did this one in Real Red, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla along with the Candlelight Christmas DSP and Real Red 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon.  I ran the Very Vanilla through the Lacey Brocade embossing folder and spritzed it with Champagne Shimmer Spray. And stamped the poinsettias on Crumb Cake in Real Red ink, and cut out using the Apothecary Labels Framelits and addes some pearls. I then stamped the sentiment in Basic Black.

Spooky Bingo Bits

This was one of my swaps for the Hilton Head swap.  I love Spooky Bingo Bits stamp set, and wanted to use it again this year during the fall season.  I also, after having it for over a year, pulled out my Spritzer Tool and let me tell you, if you don't have one of these, you SHOULD! It was so much fun!  Anyway, I stamped the images in Basic Black onto Whisper White, and punched out the words with the 1 1/4" circle punch, and the spider with the 3/4" circle punch and I layered him onto circles of Lucky Limeade and Calypso Coral cardstock and then used a Dimensional behind it to pop it up.  I wrapped one layer of Lucky Limeade cardstock with Calypso Coral Bakers twine. Using the Spider Web Folder, I ran a piece of Whisper White through the Big Shot and then used a Basic Black marker and Color Spritzer tool to make the fun look of splatter.
