Vera Rose

My cousin just had his first baby. They named her Vera Rose. I thought it was such a pretty name. I wanted to send them something for her room. I ended up making a name wall hanging. I got the idea from Felicia at Felicia's Scrapbooks.

The lace was white and I dyed it with Vintage Olive Glimmer Mist. The roses were made using the Tim Holtz tattered florals die. The leaves were some leaves I had from a package but the colors were off. I used the Vintage Olive Glimmer Mist again to make the leaves match my project.

Pumpking Carving

More Halloween...

I have a pop-up ball from Sizzix. It's a neat die but I have a hard time finding things to use for it. I decided it would make a good pumpkin. I have had this sheet of Halloween paper for several years. I love it but wasn't sure how to use it. This is what I came up with:

halloween 035

I made the black paper shimmer with orange by spritzing it with vanilla breeze glimmer mist and then rubbing it smooth with a paper towel.

Do you have any other ideas for my pop up ball? I was thinking Christmas ornaments but what else?
