Gina's Designs DT Project: Happy Holiday Shadowbox

Today I have a happy holidays shadowbox for you today. I apologize for posting this after Christmas, but it was a gift!

  This element piece was made with one of Gina's doilies and a punchelement 1 inch scalloped.
 This was a Christmas pick that I took apart. I added one of Gina's snowflakes to the front of the house.

The number was custom made for me by Gina. I added metal brads on the side. It is attached to the shadowbox with pop dots.
You can see the three different techniques I used on the ornaments. After they were painted I used bling on the first, a rubber stamp on the second, and one of Gina's snowflakes that I glittered on the third.
The "Happy Holidays" was cut from one of the DCWV paper stacks I used.

I hope you have a great end to 2014! Thanks again for stopping by my blog.

Gina's Designs DT Project: "The Stockings Were Hung" Tag

Happy Monday! I have a fun Christmas tag for you today. The tag is one of the three tags form the Chipboard Decorative Tags X Large set. To give the wall a bricked look, I stenciled the tag with the Texture Sheet - Brick Wall  using several of distressed inks. I cut a small section from the bottom of tag and made a made a box which I attached to the back of the tag. The next time I come across a small branch, I will have to gather it for logs!
For the stockings, I painted them red, used ink on the edges and a cotton ball for the "fur" look. The middle stocking is stamped with a snowflake stamp.
