And There is More

Once I got started on those wonderful ornaments, I wanted to continue creating and that, I did.
One of my wonderful friends, who happened to come over to the house, saw the garland and was so complimentary towards the work, she was quite interested to make the ornaments into gift tags. 
What a wonderful idea! I had to make at least one to share, so I began with by cutting out the templates. They can be downloaded from the Creations from Adela site
So I cut out a handful of ornaments!
To give them a little depth and dimension, 
I added a little ink around the edges with two colors of ink applied with brush. 
A light and a dark shade of blue was selected.
With the shading complete, a few embellishments were created to apply to the ornament.
 One more finished ornament to add to a pretty gift wrapped package or onto the garland!
There are so many wonderful templates to chose from Adela, that I had a hard time picking just one, so I selected a digital stamp to use to make a card, called Ho Ho Ho.

This cute guy was colored with pencils and blended with mineral spirits, cut out and glued onto a paper punched and sewn embellished card. The little snowflakes shine and sparkle with a little Stickles applied to them. A sharp sewing machine needle threaded with a complimentary color of thread was used to attach the background papers to the card. What fun this was to make!
I hope that you, may be inspired to create some fun holiday projects, too. Please leave me a comment to share any  holiday projects that you have created with me! I would love to see them!
