Stocking stuffers 2 - Handmade flower pins

OK here is a second post. I decided to make cards to hold some pins and earrings I made using fish scales.

I liked the way my first cards came out so I decided to make a couple more using the same Stampendous stamps. I used a stamp from the Halloween charms set to decorate the corners of the cards for the earrings and the white rose pin. For the pink flower I used the border stamp from the Jumbo Hollyhocks . I only used the center portion of the stamp to add the detail on the card.
I think this makes for a cute all they need is a small box.

Christmas stocking stuffers

I've been quite busy crafting this week. I decided to bring out my ribbon stash and put it to use and here is what I came up with.

These flowers are hair clips. The cards are simply made by cutting a square out of cardstock and punching some small holes for the clip. I decided to embellish the holders by using stamps. For the orange flower I cut an oval shape and used the border stamp from my Stampendous Jumbo Hollyhock. I only inked the two scrolls at the end of the border stamp so it fit perfectly on the curve of the card. The card for the white flower is a 3.5" square and I used a stamp from the Stampendous
Halloween charms to embellish  each corner. I just love the scroll on the small stamp and you can't tell it is from a Halloween set.

Holiday Ornament

Here is a Christmas ornament I made this week.

I used the Stampendous Precious Nativity stamp and I used pencils to add color.
The papers are from DCWV Coral Couture stack and they cover a chipboard base. They match perfectly with the recipients color scheme.
I used micro glitter all around the edges and added punched flowers made to look like small poinsettias.

I am entering this ornament in:

Flower Pins

Today I have something different. These are some pins I made to give as stocking stuffers this Christmas.
They are made with the scales of a fish called " sabalo" which I believe is Tarpon in English... and in case you are wondering, they do not smell fishy.
The scales were cleaned and left to dry then I used fabric dye to color them.
I used hot glue to hold the petals in place and I added some glimmer mist to add a little sparkle.

Birthday Card

I made this card for my hubby's birthday. I used DCWV Heirloom papers and Tim Holtz Stamp set.
Umbrella man was embossed and matted then adhered with 3D foam squares. I added some K & company studs to finish off the card.
