While I just loved the shabby cottage feel of the Bella Cottage site, I was wondering how I could manage to give you a sneak peek of one of many gorgeous sets coming your way at ODBD on Oct 1... and then I stumbled on this chalkboard print and I knew what I wanted to try. I thought... I wonder if I could stamp this image, called Glory to God, on gold. I tried it with Stazon and it was very light. Then I tried Versafine and tried to dry it with my heat gun, but that didn't show up either. Then I put black embossing powder on it and voila... I had the look I wanted. Since most of the things on the beautiful Bella site have soft tones of pink and ivory, I looked for more inspiration and found it HERE. These one of a kind poinsettia vintage plates were perfect! I went through my Christmas paper and found these vintage papers from Paper Studio. The flourish and leaves are cut from brushed gold with the ODBD Custom Fancy Foliage Dies and the vanilla flowers are Prima.
Thanks so much for looking! You are going to love this new release! It's so varied with both fall and Christmas themes... and I can't wait to show you more!
Have a blessed weekend!!!
