Merry and Bright... 26

Hi there! Today I have a few projects to share featuring pretty Pion Design papers from the newly released Days of Winter collection. First up is a snowflake shaped wooden holiday hanging which features a beautiful image from From Grandma's Attic ~ tinted. I was thrilled to find the snowflake on clearance at a local for store for only $1! I altered it with some white gesso, crackle paint and glitter flakes:
All the die cut circles were made using a variety of Spellbinders dies and the sentiment is from  MFT Starry Christmas:
I finished it off with a few die cut sprigs and several flowers from my stash:
Next up is a card featuring a pretty image from Days of Winter:
I framed the image in a die cut rectangle then topped off with a die cut snowflake:
For the card sketch inspiration, I joined along with the Try Stampin' On Tuesday sketch challenge:
Many thanks for visiting!
Be Sweet ;)

Love both these creations, Mona, especially the wall hanging. Believe it or not, I'm probably one of the few people who absolutely love winter; so when I see anything with a snowflake, I get excited especially when it's done in a shabby chic style. Those Pion papers are gorgeous. Beautiful projects!

Susan Lankford said...

Beautifully shabby and wintery!

Both are so Pretty! That snowflake is a great bg for that FAB image and the second one is so dreamy! LOVE that image too!

I am sighing with delight! Your use of color is so fabulous. These look like they just came out of a time capsule from the 1800's. So happy I found your blog via Craft Hoarders!
