Hi! I hope your weekend was wonderful!! I had just a little time for stamping and so I was able to finish up my projects for the Club Anya Customer blog hop!! My first project is a Christmas card holder in the shape of Santa's cottage. (I got the idea of using one of these houses I found at Micheals from Joni - A Sticky Situation. She has made some of the most wonderful house creations!!) I like to think of Santa and Mrs Claus living in a very Gingerbread-y house. There is snow on the roof (liquid applique) , icicles hanging off of the roof (Martha Stewart punch), "gumdrop" buttons with Dazzling Diamonds glitter for their sparkle. The entire house was sprayed with Baby's Breath Shimmerz Spritz so it's very sparkly in real life. Mr and Mrs Clause also have several of their elf friends and Rudolf on their way over for a visit! (And please ignore the white plastic container - that is what I usually place my cards in when I take a picture and I just wasn't thinking about this project being much bigger than a card!!)
(You can click on any photo for a closer look.)
I also made a card for the KISS challenge (Keep It Simple Shaped) for Farm Fresh Friday at The Greeting Farm. Please don't yell at me about Hula Anya getting cold - she was very excited about the snow and couldn't resist going out to play in it! I gave her hot cocoa and told her to dress more warmly next time!! But back to the challenge - we were to use only our straight cutters, but were allowed one punch (which I used for the snowflakes. They are the leftover flakes that come off when you use the EK Success Snowflake Border punch.)
Stamp: Hula Anya, Hat from XMas Sweeties - The Greeting Farm
Paper: DP - SU, Real REd, Cameo Coral SU, PTI White
Misc: EK Success Snowflake Border punch, Stardust Stickles, Liquid Applique, Ribbon - JoAnn's?
