Peace, Love, Joy and Mistletoe

I like trying to find different uses for my crafty supplies and when my good friend Linda sent me some lovely die cuts of Spring Branch by Hero Arts, I thought they would be perfect for making a little bunch of mistletoe. Unfortunately it's another dull and cloudy day here today so the photo isn't great.

Embossing Folder (Darice) - Snowflake Trim

Yet again I fell back on my old reliable Snowflake Trim embossing folder for the background panel. Once the panel was dry embossed, I embossed the sentiment in silver and adhered the panel to the cardbase with foam pads. Then I added some pearls to the branches and again used foam pads to adhere the mistletoe to the card. To finish I die cut a bow from silver glitter paper.

I'm submitting this card into Simon Says Stamps Create Something Beginning With The Letter ‘N’ Challenge. The letter "n" on this card is for the new Hero Arts Ribbon Cutting set by Lia and also nearby kisses with the sprigs of mistletoe:)

Winter Cheer

Only 42 more days till Christmas so I'm going to have to speed up my Christmas card making! Today I used Hero Arts' pretty Winter Cheer tag set by Lia to make three cards like the one below.

I die cut the ornament from silver card and added gold sequins and stars as my shaker elements. The gold thread I used for the bauble has been in my wool stash well over twenty years, so long in fact I can't even remember what I originally used it for!

The sentiment panel was embossed in gold and added to the bauble with foam pads. One of my favourite Christmas embossing folders was used for the background.

Recently I also used the tag set to make a set of Christmas gift tags for a Scramble I hosted over in the Hero Arts Flickr group. The theme was to use recycled bits and pieces on Christmas tags. In this instance the ribbon on the gift tags came from a box of chocolates. The chocolates are all long gone at this stage and I'm glad to have finally used up all the ribbon too:)
