On one of my favorite challenges, Creative Carte Blanche, the challenge this month is Song Lyrics. I had just found some Christmas paper that would be perfect for this challenge. In addition, I bought a tripod that came in a very interesting box with a little door on it. I had to use that as well.
I searched through all my Christmas dies and stamps and picked out some that I thought would work and this is what I came up with.
I used a ton of dies and stamps from many different companies. I will try to list them below:
Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Scribble Woodland Stamp Set
Tim Holtz Idea-ologu Mini Plaquettes
Hero Arts Lia Griffith Gingerbread House Die
Hero Arts Vintages Wishes Stamp and Die Set
Papertrey Ink In the Meadow Stamp and Die Set
Papertrey Ink Tiny Town Scallop Shingles Die
I used a generic tree die to make the 3-D die on the upper right hand corner of the shadowbox. The gold yarn tree I made like I made the sisal trees. I glued it in a green wooden cup I found at one of the craft stores.
All of the snowflakes are glittered with a fine glitter from Martha Stewart. I also glittered the Holiday greens as well. The prancing deer is painted with a gold mother of pearl paint from Martha Stewart. It’s a lovely color.
The snow around the one horse sleigh and the house is a combination of Ranger texture paste and Snowtex. Washi tape lines the inside of the shadowbox.
I’m pretty happy with this shadowbox, but I find that always learn with each project.
