This Home for the Holidays add on set from Papertrey Ink sure is a lot of work, but soooooo worth it! I really didn't think I'd use it much, but when the end result looks so good...I just have to! Lots of cutting out tiny fences, windows, and the snowman, but I just wouldn't be able to get this effect from a one dimensional house image.
The cutting was the hardest part though, coloring it all is the fun part. After it was all colored in I simply used vanilla scented embossing powder to put the icicles along the eaves of the roof. Perfect finishing touch! This set is a lot of fun, I highly recommend it.
Stamps: Papertrey Ink, SU

Pretty fancy card, huh! This is the new color from Papertrey Ink, called Spring Rain. Well, I can't even begin to 'think spring' yet, it's too darn cold! All the flourishes, snowflakes are embossed with vanilla embossing powder so it smells yummy! Not sure if it's still going to smell that way when the recipient gets it, but, oh well--I enjoyed embossing it!
Hope it inspires!

I used shrink plastic to make two little charms to dangle from the ribbon. One is a Sizzix snowflake die, and the other is simply a large Nestabilities scalloped oval stamped with my Justrite stamper. Pretty right?

I needed to ink up some unused stamps I had, and decided on this reindeer stamp from Impression Obsession. I embossed them with black EP, to make it easier to watercolor them with Twinkling H2O's. Pretty straight forward and easy.
Hope it inspires!

I love this stamp! Magnolia just keeps getting better and better! I wish I could have them all, LOL. This time in my DT pack were a bunch of manila tags, small, medium sized and large ones. My first thought was a small photo album, and Christmas tags. Well, I didn't quite have enough tags for really complete scrapbook, so I decided to make a tag photo card. With the second tag, I simply made a pocket out of DP (love the colors--no idea who makes them) then decorated a medium sized tag to slip into the pocket. I made a simple Nesties mat for a photo, & cut little slits in the corners to slip a pic into. Tied three of the tags together with ribbons and embroidery thread to finish it.
I also made a simple Christmas gift tag. I may have to get more manila tags for myself to make for my Christmas gifts this year. I really like the simplicity of adding some DP, a stamped image, some embellishments, ribbon and you have a really great tag. So easy! How great would they look attached to a really special gift?!
Thanks for stopping by!

Anyway, I love this DP from Stampin Up. I first saw the blue patterned paper on a card uploaded to SCS and LOVED it! I don't really buy too much from SU because I think it's torture waiting for the packages to arrive, LOL. They're all the way across the country and only ship UPS so it takes FOREVER! But sometimes, when I really like something, I'll give in and order. So, I used the mittens stamps from Papertrey Ink's Snowfall set to stamp on the back of the paper, then cut them out. Then I felt they needed a little somthing extra, so I cut out tiny rectangles of wool felt for the cuffs.
That's one card down, keep checking back, I've got a Magnolia DT project to show you all!
