Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Good morning, Deann here with a winter wonderland wall hanging that I created.

At the top I used Walking in a Winter Wonderland title from Gina's store.

I painted the phrase with white gesso . When dry I rubbed blue Distress Ink onto it. I layered lots of snowflakes that I painted blue and white and then painted the stars silver.

Next, I decorated two Snowflake Cutout Tags. I painted them in a pretty blue color and dry brushed on some white. I layered on some more chipboard snowflakes and stars and a sticker and flowers from my stash.

And finished it off with a pair of mittens from the Winter Shape Set and hung them from bakers twine.

I had so much fun combining all of the awesome chipboard!

Hot Cocoa!

Good morning, Deann here with a cute Christmas ornament for the holidays!

I used the Cocoa Mug Micro Mini Album.  I painted (well my Mum painted) them, then I embossed with a snowflake embossing folder in my Cuttlebug. Its so great that you can emboss the blank chipboard in any of the Cuttlebug or Big Shot machines!  I then inked the edges with Distress ink and some of the snowflakes with the same ink. I added snowflakes to the mugs from the Snowflake Shape Set.

 I used a rubber stamp to make the center piece, colored it with markers and then punched it out with a scallop circle punch.

 I popped up the snowman and a snowflake for dimension using pop dots.

To finish it off, I added glitter and some seam binding and bakers twine.  I am happy with the results and they are now ready to use on my tree!

Thanks for stopping by today and have a Great Day!

Coffee Sleeve Tutorial

Step 1- Get a coffee sleeve from your favorite Coffee Shop!

 Step 2- Open sleeve up, paint or stain the edges and where the folds are.

Step 3A- I cut a second sleeve apart to make a template,
3B- Cut a small amount off of the pieces on all sides, this will give an bordered edge on your sleeve.

Step4- Glue the paper to the sleeve and seal closed. All done!
Time for the decorating.

I used one of the Gingerbread men and inked it up and then edged it with gesso to look like frosting.

I added some buttons to the finished product, and volia! 
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial, thanks for stopping by.

Yard Work

Good morning, Deann here with a Fall yard seen,
I used the Standing Dome as the base for my Project. I used a paper that has Sunflowers for the Dome. The paper was the starting point for my project.
 I used a lot of dried corn husk to fill all of the open spaces.
Next I added pieces from the Fall Shape Set. 
I used a tree from the Winter Shape Set, I cut the bottom half or the tree off and glued it behind the fence. It looks a bush now.
I really like how the rake and tub look behind the fence.
Thanks for checking out my project, it was soooooo fun to make!
