A Waltzingmouse Christmas Day One

Good morning and welcome to Day One of our Waltzingmouse Christmas event. Over the next four days the design team will be sharing a world of Christmas inspired projects featuring a range of stamps, old and new.  

Today we are showcasing Alpine Christmas and the amazing new dies from Waltzingmouse Stamps Cutting Edge dies



To make the lantern I first used Bright Season and stamped out the candle, etc. onto white card Then taking another piece of white card I cut out the lantern using the Bright Season Lantern die. I placed the lantern on top of the stamped image and trimmed off the excess so that it fit under the lantern. Then I adhered it with wet glue. Once it had dried I distressed all the edges with Brushed Corduroy distress ink. I stamped the leaves and berries with distress ink, trimmed them out, distressed the edges and adhered them with some wet glue, front and back. 

The sentiment is from Alpine Christmas and I just stamped that out onto patterned paper and tucked it under the lantern, which is popped on on 3D foam dots. To embellish the bag I added a bow, some Cream Pearl Pen & a flossed button.


I hope it inspires! Here is the list of ladies also showcasing today..
