All the images are cut out with the coordinating December & January Outline Dies.  The tag and oval are from La-La Land Crafts, the snowflake is from Memory Box.  I popped up some of the layers with double sided foam tape and added red flat backed rhinestones to the snowflakes for a little added interest.

I die cut a rounded stitched rectangle of white paper with a die from My Favorite Things and adhered it to the back of the tag so there was a place to write on.

*This month’s entire new release*

From Our House to Yours

Good morning!

How peaceful is this?  When I look at this Wintry Cabin Stamp from this month’s new release at Whimsy Stamps, the first thing that comes to mind is a place to relax and totally unwind.  Maybe a place to gather with crafty friends and play with all our goodies…lol!!

Pam-Schumacher_Wintry-Cabin_Rounded-Rectangles-Die_Kinetic-Straight-Basics-Die-Set

I stamped this gorgeous image on X-Press It Blending Card and then colored it with the following Copic markers.

~Copics~
Browns:  E49/47/44/43/42/41
Greens:  G85/94/YG03
Windows:  Y26/11
Reds:  R89/46/24
Sky:  B0000/Y0000/RV0000/CB

From-Our-House-to-Yours

Once the image was colored, I added Nuvo Glitter Drops (White Blizzard) to the trees and several areas of the snow.  I die cut a border strip using the Kinetic Straight Basics Die Set, taping the bottom of the die on the edge of the paper.  I used the tiny strip that would normally be waste and used it as my border to add some more visual image.  I then used double sided 1/4″ Scor-Tape directly above the border strip and attached the red ribbon.  I popped up the center panel with double sided tape.  The sentiment is from the Gingerbread Greetings Clear Stamp Set, and was also popped up with foam tape.  Two white self adhesive backed pearls finish off the card.

All Dressed Up for Christmas

Good morning!

I am back today to share a project for All Dressed Up Stamps.  This sweet image is called ‘All Dressed Up for Christmas‘.  Looks like she is putting the final touches on her Christmas tree…AND she even has her presents wrapped!

All Dressed Up for Christmas1

I had the idea to turn this into a shaker card so I separated my image in Photoshop leaving the tree as one image and the girl and her star as the second image.  The tree is on the inside of the shaker with all the pretty little bits.  She is attached on top of the shaker with double sided foam tape.
