I've got one more joyful project to show you.
It's packed full of Inspiration Emporium goodies!
I got out several Alterations dies and started cranking!
I used the Artful Dwellings for the houses,Chip block alpha for the word JOY and Vintage Lace for the white scallop along the bottom and the chimney top. I got out my Idea-ology Vintage Shabby paper stack and cut that along with the chipboard, actually, it's the back of a tablet. I used the Mini Blue Prints stamp set from the Tim Holtz Collection by Stampers Anonymous. I stamped an image for each house with poly sparkle embossing powder by Ranger, and VersaMark ink onto Distress Core-dinations cardstock. I painted on the roofs with Clear Rock Candy Distress Crackle paint and sprinkled on diamond dust glitter. I wish you could see this in real life, it's all crackly and sparkly, so pretty.
I added buttons from my stash with Glue Dots, colored a scallop and colored in the snowflake with my white Gelly Roll pen. I twisted a silver pipe cleaner and attached it to the back of the chimney for the smoke.
I attached white seam binding across the back of each house so it would fold up and tie for gift giving.
I'm all ready for Christmas, I just have to shop for the food and wrap a couple of presents and I'm ready to go. We're supposed to have some stormy weather tonight, and maybe a snowflake or 2 by morning. We don't get much snow, not like we have in the past, whats up with that? I'd like to have 1 deep snow in the winter, just 1 ;)
I hope y'all have a very Merry Christmas, thanks for stopping by!
