In his wonderful reindeer sleigh,

Flying merrily,

3- cut snowflakes from fancy paper

7- assemble and add Dazzle sentiment sticker to the outside of the mason jar ornament. Also add a bow and some hollies using my glue gun.

for this blog hop, I decided to celebrate the joy of the season using the vintage-christmas-nesting-components-kit and the born-that-night-cling-stamp-set:

I decided to go a little bit wintery with this Christmas image because of the lack of cold here in Texas...

my steps:

1- Coloring of the wood veneer shapes:

2- silver embossing powder and pearlescence water-coloring of the stamped image:

3- Make the stamped image stand-up:

4- punch snowflakes and use the negatives as a border and glue the paper pieces to the cooper shadow box sides:

5- Glue the standing image and add snowflakes to the bottom and and cooper background:

6- add some glittery snow to the roof:

and Snow-tex to the lower border:

I also used, for the borders:

finally add some red stickles to the wood veneer shapes.

some closer looks:

I'm the last one of this Celebration Blog Hop. I hope you enjoyed and follow each of us and leave us some love.
