Christmas Banner Swap

We had a banner swap on the Wisconsin Stampers Yahoo group. Too bad only 4 of us signed up, because the work has been fabulous! I'm looking forward to putting my banner together & showing it off. Here are the 4 pieces I made.
This one has a Tissue Tape garland at the top. The focal point is 5 pieces die cut using the Carved Ornament Die from Tim Holtz.

This one was done also using the Carved Ornaments die, and 2 different Texture Fades. One for the words, another for the ornament.
I used the Gold Paint dabber as a resist on the raised areas.

This one is kind of sweet. The image is from Lisa's Altered Art. The star was punched and covered with glitter & mylar. NOEL is cut out from the same texture fade used in the previous banner.
Again, Tissue Tape across the top.
The boingy stuff is from SilverCrow Creations. A vintage tinsel. Love that stuff!

This one again used words cut from the same embossing folder. You can't tell, but there's rock candy stickles on the words. SHIMMER-li-cious!
The ornament, die cut from the Carved Ornaments die and embosssed with the snowflake Texture Fade. I went over it with Silver Precious Metal by Viva, and a little glass glitter sprinkled on top. More vintage tinsel and wa-la!
I hope the ladies enjoy.
