HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS – FARMHOUSE CHRISTMAS
I’m in the middle of getting ready for my HUGE craft show coming up on December 1st. The past few years I’ve almost sold out of everything on my table, so trying to make up even more things to sell this year! When I saw the theme for this month, I already had this HOME Frame idea in my head to make up for the craft fair, so decided to get double use out of it and use it for the Control Freaks Blog Hop!
Here’s the frame (sorry for the glare):
- The frame has a 5 x 7 opening, so Cherry Cobbler cardstock was cut to 5 x 7 and embossed with the Tin Type Embossing Folder.
- On top is a 4-1/4 x 6-1/4 Layer of Early Espresso cardstock.
- A 4 x 6 piece of Wood Textures Designer Paper was added on top.
- The Alphabet letters H, M and E were cut from Galvanized Metal Paper with the Large Letters Framelits and added to the wood DSP with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The Boxwood Wreath Embellishment was opened up a little and tied with a bow of Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine in the Cherry Cobbler color, then added for the “O” with Mini Glue Dots.
- It was placed in the frame.
I love the rustic wood look with the “metal” letters and rich Cherry Cobbler color!
Next up is a card made with Farmhouse Christmas stamp set. I used basically the same elements.
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Crumb Cake cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- On top is 4 x 5-1/4 Cherry Cobbler cardstock, embossed with the Tin Type Embossing Folder.
- A 2-3/4 x 4-1/4 piece of the Wood Textures DSP was cut with a flag end and added on top.
- The house from Farmhouse Christmas was stamped with Memento Black Ink on Whisper White, then colored with Cherry Cobbler, Bronze, and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends. It was cut with the Farmhouse Framelit Dies.
- The roof was colored with Wink of Stella to shimmer like snow. The house was popped up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The fence was cut from Whisper White cardstock with the Farmhouse Framelit Die and then added across the front.
- The bows were cut from Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper (the red) and adhered to the fence.
- The greeting from Farmhouse Christmas was stamped with Cherry Cobbler on Whisper White, then cut with the Stitched Shapes Oval and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I love how these turned out! And they were super simple to make, but would make a great gift for the holidays! OK…next up on the Control Freaks Blog Hop is Kelly Acheson! I know you’ll enjoy her projects, too!
