Vintage Santa

I made this little wall hanging tonight as a gift for my Father-in-Law. For the main Santa image, I used a photostamp from the Christmas Cards Sheet 1 by The Stampsmith. In keeping with the vintage look, I used some vintage patterned paper and some added flourishes.

Here's a close up of Santa.
I hope this finds everyone having a wonderful Christmas holiday and all the best to you all for a happy, healthy and prosperous new year!

Happy Holidays,

Paper Pieced Audrey Card

Hello Smithies!
Hope you all have your Christmas cards finished. I am officially finished and ended up making about 70 cards. As you can image, I am ready to make something other than Christmas cards. And with that in mind, I have a Lavender Audrey card for you today.

The stamp is from the Audrey Hepburn Full Sheet. I paper pieced the coat and added lost of metallic papers and accents. Here is a close up.

For more info and supply list click over to my blog. Hope you are having a great day. It is snowy and very cold here in Michigan today.

Snow Queen

In the lead up to Christmas I have made several glass Christmas Tree ornaments, making them as gifts. I knew I wanted to use The Stampsmith's stamps to make such ornaments but wanted to look beyond my usual choices such as "Holly", "Little Angel", etc. As I looked through my stamps it dawned on me that Ophelia could become a Snow Queen.
Details on how I made it and detail photographs can be seen at my Blog, Adorn.

Ophelia Charm

I have a card to show you today showcasing the beautiful, Ophelia. I saw this key chain yesterday at the Dollar store and I knew straight away that I wanted to pull it apart and add an Ophelia image from The Stampsmith to the inside and use it as a charm on a card. It fit perfectly! Ya gotta love the Dollar store, eh? :)

Here's a close up of the charm.
