Right about now I should be introducing you to Compliments of the Season Two and the Vintage Christmas Background... I'll be back in a little while with my projects for those sets, but just so's my post looks purty I have a little more Yonder star for you...
I made a little rustic ornament using some of the cut files that will go with the Yonder star set, it's an oldie but goodie idea, simply because it's so fast! if you have an electronic cutter that is...I love the texture that the saw tooth edging gives, but if you were cutting this by hand, I'd go for straight lines to keep it fast.
I just stamped the star in SU Cherry Cobbler onto the cut out shapes and literally threw some distress ink (Brushed Corduroy, I believe) on with a stencil brush, I found this much faster than sponging each individual piece. Some twine and a little bead to give it weight....easy peasy lemon squeezy...This would also make an awesome gift adornment.
I threw together another card, to give you a better look at that big background stamp - Yonder Star Background. I stamped it in green on white and loved how fresh it was. Teamed it up with a sentiment from Yonder Star, and was tickled to discover that I could pick out details on the stamp in other colours when I used two of those fancy Distress Markers that everyone is raving about...expect to see more of this, I love how the little decorative detail is picked out in red between the green words. This was very easy with the markers.
DT ladies who are previewing the Compliments of the Season Two and Vintage Christmas Background sets are here, so pop on over and visit the gals while I wait for the sun to shine enough for me to photograph my projects for today!
hope it tickles!
