Hi Everyone! Welcome to the Paper Crafters Sampler blop hop. This month's issue is entitled Adorned Holidays, and there are several templates available in this issue. Yay, templates! If you are following the hop, you have arrived from Vicki's blog. Weren't her samples fabulous? Here is my creative take on them.
Remember in Citizen Kane, Kane's boyhood sled was named Rosebud? Here's my version of the winter sleigh template, a Winter Rose sleigh... just reminded me of the movie reference.
I got the theme and color scheme from my backdrop items, created back in December 2010. I wanted a slightly smaller sleigh to coordinate, so I printed the template at 75%. They match up pretty well... maybe I'll have a whole village someday.
Of special note, especially to my mother, is the little cushion I sewed for the sleigh with Beau Chateau designer fabric, adorned with pink designer buttons. Can I say it is cute?!
Stamps: Elements of Style; Paper: Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla, Brushed Silver; Ink: Blushing Bride, Versamark; Accessories: Clear embossing powder, Subtle Collection buttons, Pearl jewels, Silver Glimmer paper, Beau Chateau designer fabric, Doily Triple Layer punch, Little Leaves die, Big Shot, Sewing machine, Needle, Thread, Batting.
Speaking of sleds, here is a sample with the cute sled template. I used traditional wood and red runner colors to created an antique sled that you would hang up for wall or door decor.
This template comes with a hidden box compartment, perfect for small gift giving, but I plan to use this for a tree ornament. How easy is it to put the perfect touch to a 3-D project with Winter Wishes stitched felt pieces? I submitted this project to Hand Stamped Sentiments Ornament Challenge #95.
Stamps: Woodgrain BG; Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Sahara Sand; Ink: Crumb Cake; Accessories: Sponge, Mini brads, Cherry Cobbler baker's twine, Winter Wishes stitched felt.
The final project is a elegant limoge or small trinket box.
I was trying to duplicate a hand painted porcelain box. The paper from last year's Occasions mini, as well as some Pear Pizzazz seam binding, are perfect for a delicate, feminine look.
I added a nice dimensional paper rose on the top. A beautiful box needs a fancy lid, don't you think?
