It was just what I needed.
So many wonderful little pieces here from Kristin, the sky's the limit!
My dear husband took out the tree today and put it up for me, something I usually do, but I didn't want to get any of the dust from the attic in my eyes....what a guy!
A little step-out here....I laid out all my pieces for 2 houses and base coated Snowflake Fresco Paint, then added several different colors from Haystack to Blood Orange from PaperArtsy.
Next I stamped with some terrific little Mini Christmas 1 and 2 Stamps from The Artistic Stamper using Archival Inks.
These Stamps were PERFECT for the little houses!!!
This is all for the inside...I set it up and liked what it looked like, so I started on the outside.
These Pine Tree Cut-Outs and Christmas Word Scroll Cut-Outs from Coffee Break Designs are base coated and them glittered up.
I also did a Blue Glittered Snowflake Cut-Out later that I decided I NEEDED!
The roof is painted Green and then I layered rows of German Dresden Scrap to create the shingled look. The Mini Border Gold is at the top.
Here you can see the Irish Creme on the outside with various shades of brown added to the edges.
Then I stamped the Chickenwire Stamp with Sepia Archival Ink and colored a few spots with red pen. I also outlined the windows with a Sharpie.
The Mini Glittered Jingle Bells (aren't they adorable?) and little Bottle Brush Tree are from RCAG, too. Just laying it out at this point.
I added the White Snowflakes later to brighten up the outsides. These Snowflakes are WONDERFUL! The detail on them is really amazing!!!
This is the back. You can hang it on the tree and let the lights shine through, or put a Battery Votive Candle in it and set it on a tabletop.
More glitter is added to the scroll eves that come in the kit, and around the back edges.
Last is some white pen marks to break up the color....of course.
The hole is already drilled for you to put a piece of gold cording or ribbon through to hang on your tree. Kristin thinks of everything!
So follow the links and order some fun to make your own little treasure, or get busy and make for gifts!!!
