A gift....




Hello, I know it has been a long time since I last blogged, but it feels good to be crafting again.
I am entering this for the Make It Monday challenge #184 Gold Dipped Die Cuts by Danielle for Papertrey Ink and The Merry Monday Challenge #13 Silent Night.

I started by dipping the tips of the tree in glitter.  The tree die is from the set called In The Meadow.  Then I started with the Basic Bookmark 2 Die and stamped the stars from Happy Spooky Halloween with versamark and embossed with white zing.  Using spring rain, blueberry sky and enchanted evening inks I blended the colors going up on the bookmark die to have a calm look of the peaceful sky.  I also included Rustic Wreath Die and Bells and Boughs Stamp set and Die.




Next, I used the Wine Bottle Tag Die doing the same technique.  I think using the blues and white color with the stars is very calming and that was the challenge for Merry Monday, Silent Night.




Here is a close up of the technique, dipping the edges in glitter.




Well it has been a joy stamping again.  See you soon.

Nancy
