Ornamental Greetings from CTMH

Woo Hoo this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches we get to work with Close to My Heart stamps!! I've not ever used their stamps...and they are excellent to stamp with!

This week at Tuesday Morning Sketches it is not ONLY a SKETCH but a TWIST too!...what does that mean???  You need to use the sketch AND the twist in order to be put in the drawing for the prize!

So here is what i did...oh and the TWIST is NON-Traditional Christmas theme:
What i did?  I stamped both of the images using embossing ink and then i used embossing powder (Zing-grapefruit and Silver Tinsel-Ranger) to get the sparkle and the retro look.  I hand cut the stamped images out and matted them with black paper and again i hand cut them out.  Super easy because i could just follow the outline of the words.   However, if you'd like to cut out your ornaments easier there is a Cricut cartridge that CTMH has exclusively for this stamp.  I also used a Memory box corner die for the flourish and a punch for the silver fern.

The Tuesday Morning Sketch this week and i rotated on it's side:
