Hello Astrid
I have to say these are just the most delightful little hand-made ornaments I have seen this Christmas.
Your Vintage effect relates an aged feel so perfectly. They are just gorgeous.

Oh my goodness!! I just love these ornaments!! They are gorgeous!! I just posted an ornament of my grandson on my blog also.

These are amazing Astrid. I really love your ideas for mounting the images inside die cuts, and the way you have coloured/altered each piece is superb. Will definitely put Treasure Gold on the Christmas list this year. Hugs, Buttons x

WAUW another stunning creation Astrid, and they just looks exactly like they are very vintage. So perfect work again here. I love it.

Truly beautiful. Would love to see them ‘in the hand’ – The metallic hues are surely wonderful. The ‘crackle’ work is stunning. Nicola x

Sarah said...

The vintage patina makes these ornaments spectacular! Beautiful work, Astrid!

Wow! These are fantastic Astrid!

I probably always use the word gorgeous when I visit your blog. When I look in Roget's, it's still my word of choice! These are so delightful.

These are beautiful!! A real treasure for the tree.

I love the little ATC's you sent. You are such an amazing artist!

Happy Crafting,

These are just wonderful... the images look amazing in their ornate frames, perfect vintage ornaments - they look centuries old, and the snowflake on that central hanging is so lovely. Another amazing set of projects, Astrid - breathtaking!

Hi Astrid, just wanted to pop by and say 'Thank You' for my card (so beautifully put together and I've even saved the envelope lol). And as for the Christmas hanger - it is truly stunning! I think I may have to buy that snowflake medallion die, it is so gorgeous. It is always such a plesure to receive something you have made, you are truly the Queen of Vintage to me!! Keep creating, much love, Cindy x

I totally admire that you can create items that look like they are from 'yester-year', these are magical, beautiful and so vintage looking.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
