Happy New Year 2014!

Have a prosperous and healthy 2014!!!

snow flake stamps – book marks give-aways

For next week I need a number of little inexpensive give-aways. Ok, everybody is reading a book once in a while so I made book marks trying out the new Silhouette stamp material I just got.
I cut little snow flakes and christmas tree stamps.
Then I cut 4 different book mark shapes from black heavy card stock.
With a white pigment ink pad you can make beautiful stamps white on black.
I used some of my snow flakes die cuts and colorful protection rings to decorate the top.
Then I added a ribbon each with a knot in front and one in the back and done!

Here you can download the book mark cut file, just click the link below:

Have a great Sunday!

Part 2 of my shadow box experiment

And this is the other one I made:
An elegant black golden winter fashion shadow box. It is more or less made like the previous one. I used a stencil to add the fantastic golden modeling paste, that makes a cool elegant and precious effect.

How to make a Santa Woman Boutique shadow box

Yesterday I had my crafty Saturday and at last I used the embellishments I cut from my santa and christmas collage sheets. I never before made a shadow box, but find them so beautiful.
The basic box I cut from black card stock from a file I bought through the Silhouette online store. But there are also templates you can find on the web to build those or you just use a part of a black box.

I added some stars and glitter to the inner background of the box. I added Glossy Accent and glitter to parts of the elements to make them glossy, shiny and christmassy. After drying I fixed the embellishments and some crafts supplies I found here in my workshop like the little glitter fur ball and a piece of wire with red stars. You can use everything gold, white or red. And it is better you make two of them. Mine is sticked to the fridge door with a magnet and I don’t want to give it away…lol…
Have fun!!!

christmas tags – snowy winter landscapes and a letter to Santa

its been a while, but I was just too busy creating some collage sheets and basic tags for your christmas crafts, gift wrapping, well and most of all just having fun.
I have of course used my favorite tool, the blending edge tool and distress ink by Ranger to color the edges, some glossy accents (on the lamplights and to make some black parts more dark black) and as hangers I just used classical red, black and green bakers twine.

You can buy it both, basic tags and embellishments as printable collage sheets here:
“A letter to Santa” on Etsy

or as ready printed and cut embellishments and tags
