The Twelve Days of Christmas 2011

Happy December first everyone!!!  I'm so excited to get started with the 12 Days of Christmas posts!! 
Sigh....I just love this time of the year and I hope you will join me for the next twelve days of fun Christmas projects and gift ideas!!   I made a fun little banner for the occasion using Rhonna Farrer's Christmas Junque Digital Images

Day 1- Card and Ornament Set

My first project features Glitz Design Beautiful Dreamer papers and a new vintage stamp by Lisa M. Pace.  If you haven't seen Lisa's new stamps made by Pink Persimmon, you will definitely have to check them out!! They are full of vintage goodness and I love each and every one of them!!  I also used a vintage hymnal page featuring "Away in a Manger", one of my favorite Christmas Carols.   I embellished the card with some hand dyed seam binding, lace, a stamped tag and a gorgeous Maya Road Vintage Findings Pearl Center.  I added some punched snowflakes with pearl centers to the hymnal paper to add some texture and color.

I selectively punched out the angel from the Dr. Warner's Corset stamp using a 1 3/4" circle punch:
and I used Copic Markers to lightly color in the image.  Then I inked the edge of the circle with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink.

For the ornament, I die cut two Papertrey Ink Damask Snowflakes.  The snowflakes were inked and then covered in glitter and layered one on top of the other.  I added the punched circle in the middle of them and added Rusty Jingle Bells, a golden snowflake and tea dyed twill ribbon to embellish.
Supplies used:
Papertrey Ink Rustic Cream Cardstock and Button Twine
Vintage Hymnal Paper
Martha Stewart Glitter
Metal embellishments from Red Lead
Recollections Pearls
Prima Lace
EK Success Snowflake Punch
Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink by Ranger
Rusty Bells from Frost It Pink
Hand Dyed Seam Binding by MemrieMare

Thank you for joining me on the first day of our twelve day adventure!!!
Wishing you a blessed Holiday Season,
