Yes, I have set free my christmas stamps. Its good to get ahead with Yuletide crafting I think. it keeps it fun and eliminates stress. this snowy winter wonderland house shaped configuration will be a pre Yuletide gift for a friend.(and fits nicely in to this months challenge theme!)
I used one of the wooden houses in the "altered art" section of the shop. I painted it inside and out with a combination of duck egg blue and cream. then i stamped some christmas images (list at the foot of the page) on to tissue paper i had pre-stained (and dried) with antique linen distress stains. i cut them out and glued them to the back of some of the compartments of the wee house. I then painted the "floors" of the compartments with white paint and added some snow-tex (fake snow texture). after that it was a case of filling in the wee compartments. making snowballs out of beads and using a lot of Tim Holz and other sizzix dies.
