Spellbinders Guest Design-Sweet Christmas (Part 1)

Hello friends!
The following is my guest post over Spellbinders Blog on Sept. 4th.
I don't want to miss the chance to share them with you, here it is!

 It is never too early to start creating Christmas projects now that the Fall is in the air.

The latest Christmas Die “Hanging Stockings” will help you get into the creating mood with Christmas projects. 
Christmas (NEW) #1

I am sharing the step-by-step instructions in the following:

1. Create a colorful background: With Distress Oxide Ink, I blended a mix of green, red and yellow onto a piece of white card stock.
2. Droplets of water: apply a few drops of water and quickly wipe off the water. This is the easiest way to create an interesting and organic background.
3. Glitter Paper: Die Cut “Hanging Stockings” with the glitter paper. Add an extra piece of white die cut underneath for a subtle dimension and interest.
4. Add sentiment “Merry Christmas” from “Santa Parade”.
5. Embellish the scene with sequins.

For the background, you certainly can use any color of your choice. A magical night sky or a warm glow (such as this one I create) is perfect for silhouette images like this. You can even mass produce this design for your family Christmas cards!
