Snowflake Ornament

As promised, here is the ornament that will go inside the card from the previous post :) I really have used that die cut hundreds of times....guess it's one of my favorites! I used up a lot of scraps on this year's cards....another one of my *stamping goals* for the year ~ ><>

It feels good to be almost finished with my Christmas cards....just need to stamp the sentiment on the inside ( which will be a Heart & Soul stamp ~ one of the new Christmas ones :) Just think about it....each card front went through the Cuttlebug twice...once for die cutting and once for embossing.....X 150 ! :) I'm going to assemble the *cut outs* into an ornament that will go inside each card....picture to follow...eventually :) The stamp is an older Penny Black one ~ it's a little hard to see but there's a tiny rhinestone in the *o*. I had a little bit of failure on some of the cards, as I 'stacked' them in a box after gluing the snowflakes on...and of course the glue stuck to the next card as well. I'm probably going to stamp & punch a tiny snowflake for the middle so the mistake doesn't show. Yes, I know that's kinda crazy....but it will bother ME if I don't :) Happy Fall y'all <3

a creative mess :)

Well this was fun! I got the idea from Pinterest (yeehaw!) and tried it for myself :) Melted the crayons with my heat gun ( actually a paint stripper....got a little too close to the top of the pumpkin....oops!) But I like it :)
