New Giveaway
Hello Friends, Please accept my apologies for my delay in announcing the winners. In case you are NOT the winner of my big blog candy I wanted to give you anther shot at something that I use all the time. This Copic Shadows & Shading book....It really is wonderful and comes with some light guides that are so handy. The Opaque White is something to have as well in your arsenal of white products that I surround myself with.
All you need to do to win the above three things is leave a comment on this post & I will select a random winner by the end of next week.
Winners Announced
When I colored this Penny Black flower a months ago I was mindful of the lighting principles of the Copic instruction book. I lost the little piece of paper with the list of colors that I used....sorry :(

I love creating shadow box frames with Spellbinder dies. They really are so quick and so dramatic. To create the sentiment "tag" I cut off part of this Spellbinder Trio, distressed it and added a sentiment from from SRM stickers
A super big congrats goes to  Debbie Morgan. Debbie was selected randomly by InLinkz and she won a huge prize package. All the details are in this post.

Removeable Ornament Card & Tutorial

Removable Ornament Card
Hello Friends, How are you today?? Have you started on your Christmas cards yet? I really need to pace myself so I don't get in panic mode. I have a removable ornament card to share with you that I created for the Penny Black blog today. 
Removable Ornament Card
The ornament is attached to the back of the card with tape so it can be easily removed. I rubbed Glossy Accents on my gold embroidery thread so it's nice and stiff and feels like wire. There is a photo in my tutorial below that shows the glimmer and shine on the ornament. 
Removable Ornament Card
I love the shape of this NEW Spellbinder ornament and I used this festive stamp called "Sparkle" by Penny Black. If you want to see a ornament I created earlier this fall you can click here.
Tape down your Spellbinder dies with drafting dots before die cutting & you can reuse them over and over. Mine were purchased at an art store that carries architectural supplies.  
Stamp your ornament with this paisley background stamp with gold embossing powder. Distress it starting with your lightest color first. 
Add more color with some daubers.  you have more control with fragile areas) Note the light areas?? Try to keep the darker colors on the outer edges so you have a highlight on your image. 
Stamp, die cut and distress your center circle. Add chipped Sapphire to the outer edges. 
This shimmer spray will transform your ornament...promise! Add some gathered twigs or any brown to the outer edges. 
I love how the shimmer spay leaves a nice and crisp, clear sparkle unlike perfect pearls. 
Paint the insides of the stamped ornaments with distress ink. Mist a little water  on your craft mat so the ink will pick up easily and paint with ease. 
Paint the inside of the ornament and add your gems. 
Don't forget to add gems to the outside of the ornament too. 
Since this is a gift I like to use Scrap Dots on the back because they disappear and give you more lift and dimension then any foam dots. 
Stamp the ornaments at an angle and distress with Shabby Shutters first. 
Add Crushed Olive on the edges and stamp the sentiment with Rich Coco ink. (Sounds yummy)
Let me know if you have any questions. I can't thank you all enough for you taking the time to leave  comments and stopping by. If there is something you would like for me to share, color or perhaps a tutorial on something specific please let me know. Have a happy day and here is the link to the PB blog just in case you might want it. Many thanks, Kathy
