Stars in My Eyes and Christmas Project

Hey there. Here are a couple of project to share with you today. First was a card for a couple of challenges.
I started with a white panel that I added to strips of gold washi tape to and then heat embossed the thank you from The Stamp Market in gold glitter powder. I die cut the stars from Papertrey Ink and added the gold dots. After it was dry I mounted it to a white card base with foam tape. I followed the sketch from My Favorite Things for the layout and created a clean card with dimension for the Less is More challenge. Finally it is a thanks card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.

Next I created one more layered ornament for a gift using the Birch Press Viva die. I made two others this morning and they are posted on my Instagram account. This one I used the Color Throwndown palette and added Nuvo glaze to the holes. All of them are double sided. These tags were all a part of Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags. So much inspiration going on over there. I was inspired by Tracey for this day 7 entry. Peace die is from Papertrey Ink.

That's all for now.  Thanks for stopping by, Sue.
