Paper Sweeties 25 Days of Christmas!-Day 24


Welcome to Day 24 of the Paper Sweeties 25 Days of Christmas!  It's Christmas Eve and I've got a project for you today inspired by any Eve during the month of December!


I've used the December release Merry Christmas Y'all.  I created my winter nighttime background using some distress inks and then splattered on some white acrylic paint and dotted on some stickles here and there.


I stamped and cut out (I decided I didn't want the images to have borders so I fussy cut them out) the houses from the Home Is Where Your Story Begins set and the Somewhere Over The Rainbow set and the truck and trees from Merry Christmas Ya'll.  I also stamped the wreath from the Happy Holidays Planner stamp set and cut it out.  After I cut the images out, I added some translucent embossing paste, some nuvo drops and then sprinkled glitter over it to create my snow covered trees and roofs.


Using various thicknesses of foam tape, I layered some gray cardstock and then cut some white snow mounds using a die from the Tree of Life Sweet Cuts.  I tucked the houses and trees in between layers of snow and then added the truck carrying one of the trees over the top.  I wanted the houses and trees to be part of the background so I colored the houses in various cool grays and the trees in a grayish blue/green.  I did make sure the houses had their lights on inside though!


The Joy sentiment from the Merry sentiment set was just right for the bottom corner!

I'm playing along over at the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge.  There is a fun color challenge going on right now and you should check it out!  I'm also linking up over at Double Trouble Challenges which has a 3-2-1 challenge (I'm told that Nuvo Drops, embossing paste and Stickles count as three embellishments) and they're playing along with Color My Heart Color Dare's Bold & Bright challenge... I'd say that truck is pretty bold!



That's it for me today!  I'm wishing you all the Merriest of Christmases!  I will be back next week with some more fun!  Thanks for stopping!
