Don't like housework (who does) but there's something very satisfying about putting everything back where it belongs once you've taken down your Christmas Tree! That's how I spent my morning after my hour walk on the treadmill....
So after the flurry of morning activity I escaped to the craftie space and satisfied my 'sit down and do something' craving!
Played with the MISTI again too - have had these flower stamps from Clearly Besotted for a while but have struggled to get them lined up with the dies - the MISTI does do what it says on the tin and am eternally grateful to my lovely husband for the bestest Christmas present!!
Had a bit of fun with the window ledge - it's actually the bottom of a window die - was going to use the whole window but put inky fingermarks on it so had to cut the actual window frame off and just use the bottom bit!
Stuck onto the brick embossed background with some 3d foam - stands up really well and am pleased with the dimensional effect.
The red vase was mounted using some thin foam whereas the blue one had some really thick foam so it overlaps the red one. Same for the flowers and the leaves.
Popped little pearls in the same colours into the flower middles.
Left a sentiment off this - it's just one for the stash box so when I come to use it will decide what I'm going to put on it!
All snippets used for the vases/flowers so I am paying my first visit this year to the Playground!
Am also popping over to Less Is More where their challenge is 'Dimension' and to Dies R Us where Anything Goes with Dies.
Thanks for looking - coffee now in hand am into blogland to see what you've all been up to! x
