For the first day of the reveals we are starting with the Destination Christmas and coordinating dies with the Christmas Campers and coordinating dies. We also have two new stencils called the Tiny Trees & Reindeer stencils.
To make my first project, I started by die-cutting the snow globe tags using the Snow Globe Shaker die set with some white card stock and acetate sheets. I added foam adhesive to create my shaker well, then added the stars confetti as my shaker element. I also adhered the words “merry” on each tag.
Next, I stamped my images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored my images in with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images. I wanted to make the cards git in each shaker so I decided to use my precision snips to fussy-cut the images. I adhered them onto the tags with my ATG gun.
I finished my design my adding some glossy accents to the cars to make them look like glass. Here’s another look:
My next project is just super simple. I colored the images with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and fussy-cut them using my precision snips.
The background is just one of my favorite patterned paper adhered on an A-2 size card base. I thought the patterned paper would be perfect to use for my scene. I stamped the flying sleigh with the reindeer from the Snow Globe Scenes stamp set. I also added the small reindeer from the same set.
I adhered the colored images with liquid glue. I wanted to add more trees to the background, so I stamped the pine trees behind the images using the Winter Memories stamp set. I know you can’t really tell that it wasn’t part of the patterned paper because I used the same color of ink. Here’s another look:
