Docerela Creations Blog Hop and Black Friday Sale!!!

Docerela Creations is hosting another challenge!

Today's challenge is to create a 3-D project with a Christmas theme!
Just in time for the Holidays!

Supplies: Stamps: Docerela Creations -Home for Christmas; Patterned Paper: Crate Paper, Jenni Bowlin; Chipboard: Crate Paper; Tags: Elle's Studio, Studio Calico; Stickers: Cosmo Cricket; Ink, Embossing Powder: American Crafts, Jenni Bowlin, Recollections, Tsukineko; SnowTex; Frame: Target

I made this little frame/shadow box for the challenge. The Home for the Holidays stamp set is so perfect for creating a little Christmas scene such as this one! To make this snowy scene I started with a simple little frame that I picked up on clearance at Target dollar isle for about 33cents (and it was a 3 pack)! Love sales! 

Instead of using the front of the frame I used the back to create a little shadow box. To add dimension and layers I cut a piece of patterned paper for the background, spritzed it with Mister Huey. The saying "days till Christmas" is adheared to the patterned paper and then the layer of plastic is placed over to create the dry erase surface for writing the countdown numbers.

Next, I used my favorite seasonal texture maker- SnowTex to create the snow! I fussy cut the brown tree from a piece of patterned paper and placed it in the snow. To add another layer I hot glued the little chipboard snowman to the lip of the frame. And his little banner is made from a q-tip that I cut in half and from an Elle's Studio banner that I cut in half and stamped.

The chipboard tree is attached to the lip of the frame as well. I cut an oval piece of chipboard and hot glued it to the underside of the frame beneath the tree. Then covered it in SnowTex. I had my co-worker help me to make these tiny little boxes (because I'm to impatient to fold those little things -LOL!) and then stamped one of them - can you believe how perfectly the sentiment fits on the little gift box? LoveIt! And I used the other half of the banner q-tip to make a little 'no peeking' sign to place by the presents! Oh, and the top banner was created by stamping and embossing the sentiment directly onto the ribbon. A few little details here and there and little Christmas snow scene is easily created!

I hope you will pop on over and visit the rest of the design team and join in our challenge over at Docerela Creations! And be entered to win a set of her stamps!
