Morning, y’all! It’s Jinny here this morning, sharing my first Christmas page of the season. It was inspired by Marie-Pierre Capistran’s newest Home for Christmas collection (Although, you’ll find a number of others were used, too.) and an oldie, but a goodie, Quilt Prints stamp set from Wplus9 Design.
I started this page by stamping the Quilt Prints, in Jet Black ink, on the watercolor paper, base page. I then added puddles of soft, blue and purple watercolors before splattering everything with those same watercolors, as well as bright pink watercolor and Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints. The Quilt Prints flowers were then paper-pieced, using a heap of scrumptious papers from the shop, to set the stage for my family photo, which was matted with white cardstock and backed with a snippet of cheesecloth for texture. It was then topped with a “no place like home” Home 3×4 Pocket Card, which serves as my title, and a cute, little, heart, word bubble Snow & Hot Cocoa Die Cut, popped up with foam tape.
A For You Shipping Tag, laced with white string, tied in a bow, was tucked under the title’s left edge and topped with a couple of Grandma’s House Die Cuts, as well as a darling, Happy Memories Die-Cut deer, popped up with foam tape.
To its right, I added a stunning, large, floral Grandma’s House Die Cut, which trails down the right side of the photo thanks to the Holly Leaves Vintage Die Cut.
A number of additional, smaller Grandma’s House Die Cuts add layers; and a sweet, little Wood Partridge Vintage Sticker, backed with white cardstock, hand-cut out, and popped up with foam tape, crowns them all.
The entire design was then grounded with a “family” Happy Memories Die Cut, popped up with foam tape and embellished with a “Merry Christmas” Kris Kringle Flair Button; Grandma’s House Die-Cut holly leaves, studded with a single, red button, laced with white string; and a combination of Nice List Words and Magical Word phrase stickers.
A Silver Label Die Cut, etched with the Thursday, Dec. 25, 2014, date and popped up with foam tape, as well as a happy scattering of Clear Skies Sequins, completes the look.
Be sure to add December’s gorgeous, vellum, Freebie of the Month die cuts to your orders of $24 or more.
