Did I ever mention how much I love creating for Christmas?! I do, it is one of my most favorite times to create things for. My problem is I never start early enough to get all the things I want to make done before the rush of the Holidays set in. Life it seems is always busy, so this year I am trying (again) to get an early start! This is another A Muse Open House sample for this weekend!! (see previous post for more info on Open House!) I am so very excited about this Large Mitten Die, I have been cutting these out by hand for years, now I don't have too!! I have so many ideas for things to make with this die I know I won't possible get to them all, but I am going to try! This is actually a card, I used our wonderful felt for the cuff and snowflake, have I ever mentioned how much I love felt?! :) I used French Roast and Ocean inks on Bermuda paper to create the plaid with Mad About Plaid. I think that will become one of my favorite stamp sets, so fun!
Another set of dies that I am really enjoying is the classic tags, they make up so quickly and beautifully! For these I used Sky ink and card stock, Twas card stock, Nordic Noel and Mini Holiday Messages stamp sets. You can not see it so well in the picture but I covered my stamped images with glue and sprinkled them with Diamond Glitter, so sparkly!! Sentiments were stamped in French Roast ink. A Little brown and white Bakers Twine finishes it off. These would be easy to mass produce for all your Christmas packages and gifts.
So what do you think? I will be back tomorrow with more to share, I hope that you will join me then!
Have a beautiful day!!
