there's bling, lots of goodies, holiday wrap and paper and oh, the assorted scraps and such!
But oh I really do like the results!
This sweet treat box is from SVGCuts Christmas Open House Kit. This box is one piece and is quick and easy to make. The frame on the outside and the frame on the inside are easy peasy to glue or easier to apply if you use the 5 in Xyron machine and I used a piece of transparency for the window and cut it all with my Sizzix Eclips. Tamara's Flairs from PaperPlay Studio are the perfect final touch. Inks from Stampin' Up! and papers were from EchoPark Very Christmas and printed on my Epson WF-7510 wide format printer and all wrapped up with a little raffia from my stash.
This project was so much fun and was created for a Christmas challenge using selected kits from SVGCuts. I chose Santa's Visit and 3-D Letters. EchoPark's papers were perfect for this too and decided I wanted to try a shadowbox effect... not too hard, but a bit of a challenge, so off we went.
Another project I decided to work on was so much fun!!!!
Double embossed beard, moustouche, hat and pom using cuttlebug folders adds texture and detail. A little inking, some white gel pen give Santa a little personality.
Resizing the letter faces and cutting multiples and stacking creates depths. These almost look like iced gingerbread or molasses cookies at a distance. The H's and O's along the side are cut out and inked. There is a postage stamp cut backing behind the EP snowflake paper. Love the look! The shadow box is made from 2 sheets of 12 x 12 white paper using basic shapes welded together and adding some score lines. And adding a box. I really like that feature in eCal!
and one last project for this past week...
This is a fun project for a perpetual or countdown calendar that is really easy to put together and requires only a few large pieces of paper and you can use up lots of scraps if you're interested in a scrappy look -- and that could be fun! I found the kit on JessicaSprague.com and it was created by Samantha Walker.
I used papers from my stash and a EP print from Very Christmas collection. The Snowflake stamp is from PaperTreyInk.com and I used Whisper White ink from Stampin' Up! set with a heat tool. Everything was cut with my Sizzix Eclips. Additional inks, blender pens and markers were also from Stampin' Up!
