The last FWF of 2012

Hi everyone! I hope Santa treated you well. He brought me a bunch of Unity and I finally got time to ink one up. 
I made this CAS card to send to my sister. She's been in town all week but headed back today. I want to mail it tomorrow so she'll get it on Monday.
I'm sure you know that there's a great sale at Unity this weekend. 

Have a great week

Merry Christmas FWF

I needed a couple tags for gifts. These two came together pretty quick.
I think they turned out well. The one on the left is covered in washi tape. On the right was done by making an embossing folder into a stamp using a gelato.

It's going to be a busy day today. Out for last minute shopping then home for more baking. I still have a few more cookies to make and fudge too.

Since this is my last post before Christmas I wanted to wish everyone a 
Very Merry Christmas

Little gift card bags

I have been wanting to make something using a Tim Holtz technique. The one where he uses ink and water on the craft mat. I finally made something today....mainly because i needed a couple little bags. The color in the photo are a little washed out. I tried getting a better photo.
All products used are by Ranger. I used peeled paint distress ink and heirloom gold perfect pearls mixed together to make the paper. The rosette is edged in gold using an acrylic paint dabber.
The technique was a lot of fun to do. I'm sure I'll be doing more of this technique.
Thanks for looking.

Stamped wrapping paper

I usually don't make my own wrapping paper but I decided to give it a try. Especially since Ranger is having a challenge.

I don't have many Ranger products besides Stickles but I like how this turned out. My daughter liked it too. I'm glad because it's for her ;) 
All I did was takes a sheet of copy paper and misted it with Perfect Pearls Mist in Perfect Pearl. Once it dried I stamped the Unity snowflake stamps using Broken China distressed ink and a silver Dabber. The ribbon, beads, and snowflakes are from my Christmas stash. I even added some silver Stickles to the snowflakes. 
I might have to try another gift wrap project with the peeled paint ink and gold Stickles, Dabber, and Mist.  I sometimes make mini trees so I have lots of gold ornaments to add too.

Merry Christmas mini

I decided to make a couple mini canvases today. I'm not sure how I'm going to use them though. Maybe as ornaments? Hang one on the wall? Gift tag? 
Here's a closer look. There's tiny gold dots all over the paper just to give it a little texture and shine.

Paper: Basic Grey Aspen frost
Stamps: Unity Bitty Backgrounds & Christmas Eve Chowder
Paint: Faber Castell Cherry Red Gelato, Ranger Gold Paint Dauber
Greenery, ornaments, bow: from my stash.
