Faux Enamel Embellishments


I have been having a lot of fun making these faux enamel shimmer embellishments to add to my cards. I have a tutorial on making them on the Spectrum Noir Blog today. 


On these 2 cards I used a stamp from the Jardin Paris set by Fun Stampers Journey. I am just in love with this flower stamp. 


I made about 6 cards similar to these with a variety of sentiments on them. My husband took them to work and the ladies in his office bought them all as soon as they saw them. I guess I should make some more of them!

Contemporary Christmas


Today I am sharing a card I made with some of the items from the new Contemporary Christmas collection from Crafter's Companion. I love the nontraditional colora in the collection. 


Here are some links to the products I used to make this card:

With Love Christmas Tag {Scrapper's Delights Freebie Friday}

There's a new Freebie Friday available from Scrapper's Delights. It's Christmas Hugs Aww Baby.

I was inspired by another member of the DT. She made a really cute tag with this image, so I decided to copy her and also make a tag. 

I think this will look super cute on someone's Christmas present this year! 


I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers and added some little white dots on her cheeks with paint. I pulled some papers from my Christmas stash along with some ribbon for the tag. I die cut the snowflakes and the sentiment from Glitter Cardstock.

You can find all the information on how to get this image for free on the Scrapper's Delights facebook page.
