Holiday Shop Update

Happy Wednesday! I’ve got some new additions for my Holiday Shop today, and thought I would share them here with you.

I am such a sucker for snowmen. Love them throughout the holidays, and all winter long, too. So today I have lots of silly snowmen to share, starting with this lot here…. a big ol’ batch of prim “flatie” snowmen ornaments.

I’m laughing a bit over these guys because they were quite the experiment. I wanted them to be very rustic and very….. well, stiff. Stiff as a board, to be precise. So I stitched them up and then I doused them with starch. And coffee. And cinnamon. And then I baked the heck out of them. Yes, I literally baked them. And trust me… they are quite stiff! hahaHA

And my oven smells really good now, too!

Then there’s this guy. A bigger, one-of-a-kind snowman that’s quite near and dear to my heart. He’s all dressed up in his winter flannels with hat and scarf and he’s ready to make the cold, long trek to your house.

I had fun with this guy. Used some of my favorite vintage buttons on him, and hand-stitched and hand-painted the face. I made a shabby sweet bundle of candy canes for him to hold, too, tied up with pretty glittered leaves and berries.

These are available now in my shop, along with more details and information. I hope you enjoy! And thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello Friend with BasicGrey

Happy Wednesday, Friends! Today I have a card to share that I made with BasicGrey’s adorable B-Side collection.

AudreyPettit BG BSide HelloFriendCardB-Side is so bright and cheerful, and I really love how versatile this collection is, too. I’ve used it for fall cards and Halloween cards, even for a lovey dovey card. And now today for this friendship card. Perfect when you want to send a little hello.

AudreyPettit BG BSide HelloFriendCard2It really doesn’t get any easier when you have embellishments that do all the work for you, like this sweet floral banner sticker I used for both the sentiment and the main focal point here. I pulled colors from the sticker to build up the rest of the card, creating a pretty framework for the image using die cuts and several layers of papers to help set it off.
