Wallpaper Christmas scene

Hi everyone. I am here to share with you a card I created using the Tim Holtz Wallpaper. Hopefully it will bring back some memories of you and siblings in front of your Christmas tree. 

If you would like to see my process video, you can check it out below.


I wanted to create a room that had some perspective, so I created a template from an image I found on line. 


From there, I cut out the wall paper, and used some washi tape to create the wood floor.  The ceiling was created using texture paste.


The Christmas wallpaper this year has some great scenes of winter in the outdoors. It was perfect to use for my window. 

Thanks for stopping by!





25 Days of Christmas Tags

Image
Hi everyone! Today I am participating in the 25 Days of Christmas tags and featuring some great dies from STAMPlorations. You can find all the details over on Tracey's Blog


The two sets that I am using form my tag are Two Reindeer and Luggage tags. These are nesting dies which means that there are several sized that can be layered one on top of the other. This made it very easy for me to cut through one of the smaller tags so that my darker brown card stock would show through. I then used the cut out deer for my second tag. 



Here is a closer look at the tags. 



It was a quick and easy way to get to fun holiday tags. Be sure to check out all the tags through the 25th. I am sure you will get some great inspiration. 





STAMPlorations 4th annual Giving Thanks Blog hop

Hi everyone and welcome to our 4th annual Giving Thanks blog Hop.  We are celebrating today by sharing some of our creations using stamps and dies from STAMPlorations.  You can find all the links and info over on the STAMPlorations blog.


For my card today I am using the Doodle Autumn Pumpkindie along with the Thankful every day phrase  This doodle die is so delicate and intricate, but cuts so nicely. I was able to get a nice clean cut on the first try and didn't tear any part of the die. That is rare for me on these detailed dies, but I was so happy with the results!

Now as I said, this is a hop and there are over $200 in prizes to be giving out. You can also win prizes by visiting our FB and Instagram pages and tagging your friends. Don't forget to link up to the linky party as well which closes on November 30th. 

Winners will be announced on December 10th over on the STAMPlorations blog.  

Also don't forget from November 12 to 30th, stamps, stencils, and dies are 40% off,…
