Quietfire Blog Hop for Christmas

Thank you so much for stopping over and joining all of us on the 
new stamps just released for Christmas.  If you just started today be sure
and check back on the blog for Mon and Tuesday for a chance to win lots of prizes
 and meanwhile I get to share something fun today with all of you that i did.


I actually had a different idea in mind but somehow like most things
i do it evolved to become this huge wooden snowflake that i could put
up in my house to decorate.  I bought the snowflake from my local hobby
store and decided not to paint it this time.  I did cut papers from Spellbinders
dies to fit the center and on that i stamped my image and embossed it with
a really pretty red glitter embossing powder.  Then i used Fired Brick distress
ink to create a border inside.  To finish it i cut out lots of snowflakes from
the 2013 Spellbinders Snowflake die and i glittered it all up with rhinestones
and glitter from Stampendous.  It was one of those fun messy kind of
crafty projects i did while listening to my favorite Christmas carols so
it was really, really fun to do!


Here is a close up so that you can see the stamp better.  It is called
Good Friends are like Snowflakes and you can buy it here.




I have another quick project that i did with the new Merry Christmas
stamp set.  In this one you get 6 gorgeous styles of the word and each
is different and will make your projects unique and beautiful. I layered
lots of dies in ivory cardstock and added little touches of gold on the
flowers and with the photo corners to match the sentiment.  I hope that
you like what i did and it inspired you to create something fun too.

So how do you win the prizes.. just read a little further...your almost there.
