TODAY is day 11 and the challenge is BANNERS.... If you hop over to 
Marks Finest Papers a Heinrich Co 12 Days of Christmas there is a tutorial on
 making a banner and you can join 
in the fun. There will be a daily winner picked AND the Grand Prize is 20 stamp sets of
 your Choice!! Be sure to take this opportunity to join in~

The Spellbinder pennants turned upside down made for a
perfect for a tree shape. After cutting the pennants the green was  cut,
embossed and edges distressed then added to the pennant.
 The striped tree is cut from a PTI die and a star topper added. 
The snowflakes were cut from a die and punches and layered around. I know
Butterflies and snowflakes may seem like a odd combo but
it needed a topper and in my crazy world it works. Some of the 
snowflakes were glittered up to give them some shimmer in person.
 A few buttons tied on and attached each pennant to a thin
 sisal rope, there you are a quick little banner.


Pat has given us a great tutorial on two tone resist
It is a great technique with a nice variety of results. I started with pastels 
on white then stamped the Pocket Watches Set with versamark and added 
clear embossing powder. After heating it I went over it with some
 brown ink. The areas that weren't embossed are the brown areas.
 I then added it to a piece gold then onto the embossed creme cardstock. 
 The little corner designs are from a die that has no name on it
. The pocket watch is from the Take the Time Set, cut out and
foam dotted on. A bold black sentiment for a  simple card.
