Good morning all!
I hope you had a good weekend. I spent most of Saturday with my best friend which gave me an entire day of Twyla-time which was exactly what I needed after a long and busy week. We toured the Bachmann Idea House to see what delights they had in store for the holiday season and, of course, came away with more ideas than financial means to make them happen, but I did find a funky “tree” to put in my bathroom for Christmas. I’m trying not to feel guilty about jumping past Thanksgiving in my holiday plans. : )
So, today I have just two samples to share with you using the Bright and Beautiful set. I had an ornament that I was putting together too, but sadly it got into a fight with a cup of coffee and lost. : ( Yes…I know,,,Ii shouldn’t have open beverages on my work table…
I hope you’ll agree however, that the cards I have to share are a nice representation of this pretty set.
My first is a crisp white card layered on Smoky Slate and again on Soft Sky. I stamped the largest of the three stars in Night of Navy directly on the face of the white card. The medium and small stars were stamped in Soft Sky and Smoky Slate and either die-cut or hand trimmed. I stacked the three together using foam dimensionals and added a sparklu blue gem to the center of the smallest. The organdy and silver cord bow is attached with a glue dot and “JOY” is stamped in Night of Navy to finish things off.
My second card is done in ivory, Wisteria Wonder and Smoky Slate. The larger stars are stamped in Wisteria Wonder and the smaller in Smoky Slate directly on the ivory card,
The center focal point is also stamped in Smoky Slate but I added “JOY” to the center in a small ivory circle using Wisteria Wonder and layered it on a scallop circle of Wisteria Wonder.
A few randomly placed silver nailheads and rhinestones give this one lots of extra sparkle.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your week!
