Echo Park paper from my stash called Very Merry Christmas: Music Notes and Holly Berry replaced the original paper for this project. I really wanted a red color theme. I did keep the colors used for Hot Cocoa Marci for this project (although I really wanted to color her dress in reds - too much!) A Music background stamp from Impression Obsession used for the oval on the outside and inside - it was stamped using brown ink on Vanilla card stock. Edges are sponged using the Ranger Distress Vintage Photo ink. Lots of adhesive pearls used. The snowflakes have Sakura Crystal gel pen outlined for some additional subtle shine.
Are you noticing the Stickles Stardust along the edge of the Trinket Box? So subtle and just enough shine. It is also added to the Brackets, too.
Love the Ivory color ribbon: I spritzed it with some water, crumpled it up, and let it dry to get this look.Trinket Box inside: isn't it just "yummy"?
Thank you Sandie for your inspiration on this project - I LOVE it so much!!!!
Here's another holiday project: Snowflake Garland Marci Banner by Design Team Leader Debbie (her blog here). I was thrilled beyond my shoes when I saw this project. For this banner, the following dies were used:Scallop Boarder Die, Ornate Snowflakes Die, Rolled Rose Small and Medium Die, Holly Flourish Die, Pretty Poinsettia Die, Heart Fence Die, Christmas Tree die and can be all found here. Another LOVE LOVE LOVE project!
Banner section is 5" x 6". Letters are embossed. Stardust Stickles is added to the shadow of each letters..........LOVE the sparkle! On top of each section are quill rolled roses on top of the snowflakes. Red adhesive rhinestones used for the center of the small snowflake.
Viva Gold Pearl pen used for the centers of the poinsettias. White Out/Correction Fluid is added to the edges of the poinsettias.
Snowflake Marci is holding a sting of snowflakes. Photo doesn't show the Sakura Crystal Gel pen used on the snowflake. Adhesive rhinestone added to the center of the snowflake.
Last section features a 3D Christmas tree with red adhesive rhinestones and also White Out/Correction Fluid for the "snowy" effect. Two Christmas trees were folded in half for this 3D effect. LOVE the fence in the background, too
Here's a better look at the Christmas tree:
The third project today is a journal by Design Team member Sue (her blog here). It is using the Daisy Faerie Marci image. This project is using the Trinket Box Kit omitting the box sections, adding a binder ring on the spine. Clever, eh? Dies used on this project: Heart Doily Boarder Die, Stitched Tabs Die, Pretty Poinsettias Die, Heart Tree Die, Stitched Scallop Boarder Die, Water Lily Die, Decorative Corner Die which all can be found here. I flipped when I saw this great project............great, eh?
Glossy Accents added to the flower headband for some shine. Stardust Stickles added to the wings....after all Faeries need some glitter on their wings.
A closer look at the flower (Water Lily Die) with the bling-bling center:
Back, spine and front view: I added the decorative corners to the back
