All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth.....I've got you humming that tune don't I?! This is a pic I took of my DD a few years ago while we were ice skating at the park. I used the Winter Joy collection from Bo Bunny. I won it in a contest over at Swirlydoos. This paper is prettier in person, trust me!
I have used three different papers from the collection to make this page. I fussy cut the bottom page to fit the squiggly vertical lines in behind the flowers. Then I used the backside from another paper to use for the circle and slid that behind as well. I used mini pom-pom lace to trim out the circle. It made me think of little snowballs.
These little dots were a lot of fun to make. One of the girls over at Swirlydoos, Bonnie, reminded me about this cute little technique. She used glue, and I used Glossy Accents. Here is how you do it:
- Get out your handy non-stick craft mat
- Take your Glossy Accents and make random sized dots and let them dry and harden, thoroughly
- When you are sure that they are dry and hard, use your Alcohol Inks to give them color. Put a few drops onto the mat and then using tweezers place the dots in the little puddles. You can use a Q-Tip and add some ink to the top if you think you need it.
- Let it dry and that is IT!!! Aren't they cute?!
I made the Poinsettias using an SVG file. I cut them out using my Cricut and then ran them through my Cuttlebug and embossed them. I then used some Dusty Concord and Faded Jeans Distress Ink to highlight the embossed areas on the flowers. I used Liquid Pearls to place a dot on the ends of the mini flowers in the middle and added Diamond Dust to the edges. I think Diamond Dust can sometimes look like ice and that was the look I was going for. I threw a pearl in the middle to finish them off.
The butterfly I made using a stamp from Layers of Color. I used black Archival Ink and stamped it on a piece of scrap from the Bo Bunny collection. I cut it out and then went over it in purple Stickles.
I had a lot of fun making this page and I hope that you have found something that inspires you!!! TFL!!
