'Tis the Season...CR84FN68 Week 2 56

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, December 1, 2012 @ 11:55 PM | , , , , , ,

Hi there! I hope you are all having a great weekend! I'm here to share a project I made for week 2 of the CR84FN68 Color Challenge using the pretty colors shown below. Thanks to all those who have played so far, many beautiful projects. You still have time to join along in the fun in fact, we have extended the CR84FN68 Color Challenge by one week ending on Wednesday, December 12th and there is a prize to be had by one lucky participante!
I altered a paper mache star shaped box using MFT stamps, Die-namics dies and patterned paper from the Pink Paislee City Sidewalks Collection.
I inked up and colored the gorgeous Vintage Santa image from Inspired By Christmas, cut using a die from Die-namics Circle STAX 1 then layered a Paver Red doily die cut that was made using Die-namics Decorative Doily. This project features quite a few homemade flower embellishments using the following Die-namics: PoinsettiaLayered Rose, Mini Royal Roses, Royal Rose, and MINI Rolled Roses. I think I may have gotten a little excited and went wild with the glitter! :) LOL
I stamped the sentiment on a die cut that was made using Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon Die
I can't get enough of the beautiful Poinseettas
In case you were wondering how I created this project, please feel free to look at the tutorial I created:

Thanks so much for visiting! For more fab inspiration, please visit the CR84FN blog to see what all the other DT members have created! I hope you have a great weekend!

***Don't forget Pink Paislee is in the midst of their annual Countdown to Christmas celebration and their are lots of prizes to be had!
Be Sweet ;)
