dimensional festive make for creative expressions DT

hey there blog friends,
 new and old..
thanks so much to my new followers and to my faithful followers
 who have left such lovely comments ....they are treasured...
well it is Thursday and time for another
so here she is:
and the other side :
the sheets of stamps i have used are
i have loved playing with these stamps and
that you can create simple and elegant cards and tags
..and then get carried away on things like this ..
i started by covering a block with the fab new melange tissue wrap..
and  in snow cap, pearl and silver paint dabbers
and a wash of watered down gesso..
and a dot of liquid pearls added to the centre.
i also added some die cut snowflakes from the new frosted film..
the tress were stamped in pumice stone,
covered in sticky embossing powder..this is fab..
and yes you have guessed...sprinkled with rock candy loose glitter
did i say i love this?
a little wire and some wooden stars finish this side
the top is an idea-ology knob
and the feet are bingo numbers..layered
painted and glittered..
 the other side
has the beautiful reindeer stamped and
embossed in cosmic shimmer silver...
some flowers,
covered in glue and seal and then..
sprinkled with loose rock candy glitter..
a few leaves cut from
ranger foil sheets...and glittered as the flowers
oh and the sentiment is from the let it snow sheet
thanks if you have made it to the end of this post!!
so much to show..
have a fun and inky day!
Creative expressions have a fab new project book
details here..
