Greetings! Season’s Greetings, that is! All of this week, the Stampendous and Dreamweaver teams are playing with a mix of their products, along with some wonderful, SAND-ABLE papers from Core’dinations. Join us as we sand our way to the “core” of all things Christmas and the Holiday season. ***If you are looking for my 31 Days of Halloween post, please scroll down.*** Of course, there will be prizes, and we give away the best…this time with a mix of fun Core’dinationsproducts as well. To be one of three prize package winners, follow the posted link lists each day, leave a comment, and winners will be selected from these comments at the beginning of next week. Here is what you might win:
Here’s what I’m showing off today:
I started off by stamping the pine branches from the Forest Friends stamp set. I added some flocking, but it really doesn’t show. Next, I cut out the Nested Ornaments with some lovely glitter paper. I also embossed my sentiment (Happy Holidays) with my Big Shot machine, and since I used Core’dinations, I sanded it down to get that cool distressed effect. I also added some highlights using a white pen.
Next I used a border punch…really just as an experiment, and I like the framed look that it gave the card. I added some scraps of one of my glittery papers, and some dots of Silver Stickles on the branches. A little ink around the edges, and that’s it.
Leave a comment for me, and head to the next on the list:
