Hand made gift

Hello my crafty friends:

I have been busy, yes, still doing Christmas cards for my friends and families.  The international ones are all done and mailed!!  Whew!!  Every year my friend from Norway and I do a little gift exchange, and I have been sending her small hand made items, like my cards, desk calendar, wall hanging and the like.  This year I decided to make her a few ornaments.   And I thought I share them with you here.

Left:  made with six layers of die cut CS, both frame and letters.  The "joy" is suspended with fishing line.
Supplies:  Hero Arts Fancy Die (Alphabet Uppercase), Spellbinders (Classic Scalloped Rectangles), Range Stickles (Platinum), Bo Bunny gem

Midde:  Chip board frame covered with Pearl acryllic Paint.  The die cut leaves are covered with glitter powder.
Supplies: Elizabeth Craft Die (Triple leaves), Petaloo Premier art flowers, Craft & Glitz Glamour Glitter (Limetreuse)

Right: Shaker ornament, sequins and beads sandwiched in between stamped acetate and card stock, secured with form adhesive.   The beads on the outside edge of the ornament are first thread together then glued to edge using glossy accent.
Supplies: Hero Arts Stamp (Magic of Christmas), StazOn Ink (Cotton White), sequins, beads

Thanks for stopping by.  I wish you a lovely day!   And for my US crafty friends, a great Thanksgiving up ahead!!
