As many of you know I am a HUGE Christmas fan and I like to make some Decorations every year to display in my home .....
Here is the 1st I have made (so far.... lol)
I bought a small box frame from a Charity Shop for 50p and it had a sprig of Lavender in it .... I took it all apart and cleaned it up then decorated the frame using Bobunny Chrismas paper ... I adore this paper range .
I made a small fireplace from some scraps of Chipboard then painted it black and dry brushed some white paint on it for a stone effect .
I also made the little firebox from scraps of chipboard too. I decorated the back of the frame with some Halloween paper from Stampin' Up which is an awesome brick wall effect .... perfect for what i needed . I got the little white Christmas tree from Tesco in the January sales it was a pack of 4 for £1 ..... I trimmed the back and side of the tree so it would fit into the corner then glued into place.
I glued the fireplace to the brick wall. I took 3 of the little Christmas stocking from Xanderous Crafty Stash and heat embossed them using a few different embossing powders .... Then I decided to do the same to the little Christmas trees as I wanted it for on top of the fireplace .... I was careful to not get any powder onto the little star at the top .... I found a cameo thing in my stash (Xanderous Crafty Stash do sell these and you can decorate them in anyway you want ) and glued this to the wall.
I made a tiny Christmas card using a scrap of card and a little punch out which i coloured and Hey presto ...... a cute little Christmas Decoration ...
I would love to know what you think ...... Check out the range of metal embellishments from Xanderous Crafty Stash over on Face book and The Stampin' Up DSP can be found in my Stampin' up shop ....
Many thanks for stopping by
