Yes, my friends, you are in for a SERIOUS treat today! We are hopping along with the entire Samantha Walker Designs Creative Team and it is going to be pretty much awesome! Just say'n!

I have created some really fun projects to share with you today! And...the other girls are A.MAZ.ING. so you TOTALLY need to check out what they all created, as well! PLUS...there are goodies being given away!




Yarn Tree 2


This is my yarn tree! I covered the cone in yarn and then added REALLY fabulous Christmas in the Kitchen paper circles. I will be posting a complete tutorial on this project tomorrow!




Christmas Banner


I also created this super pretty banner for my mantel! For this one I used Be. bare elements chipboard trees from Creative Imaginations and covered them with Samantha Walker papers. I added some of the wonderful stickers from Samantha Walker (Creative Imaginations), some crepe paper, and glass glitter to make it complete! I LOVE the dimensional chipboard sticker that I used for the center!!! LOVE!!!!




Deer on Tree Banner Piece





Deer Banner Piece (red)





Green Stocking Banner Piece





Red Stocking Banner Piece





Center Banner Piece


I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this! It was so fun to create and it looks SO cute hanging on our new fireplace!!!!

I also created a super fun holiday card!




Wishing You a Merry Christmas


To create this I first stamped the image from the Encompassed Grace set on the cardstock. I then stamped it again on a scrap piece and cut it out. I placed the scrap one over the original image and spritzed the entire card front with Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist from Luminarte (CI).




Wishing You a Merry Christmas center


After it dried I added the sentiment rub-on over the stamped, masked image area.




Wishing You a Merry Christmas flat


I then layered ribbon, baker's twine, and two Samantha Walker stickers over the image to complete the card!

I wish you could see how shimmery and fabulous it is!!!

So...come on back tomorrow for the tree tutorial and today, continue on to see what everyone else has created! You should have reached my blog from Eva's Blog and you will be heading on over to Julie's blog! (If you just happened upon my blog today you can start the fun over at Samantha's blog!)

Wow! Love the throw-back look of your covered yarn tree...with a modern spin. I'm also digging your glitter touches...glitter is such a fun way to make things shine! Your card is gorgeous...I didn't know I had made that sentiment in a stamp...but then realized you used one of my rub-ons...with my stamps...clever girl, you are!

Is it weird that the thing that jumped out at me and just put me right over the top was the candy cane striped baker's twine? The smallest things can jump start some big inspiration! I love the card and I can't wait to come back tomorrow and see the tutorial for the yarn tree. I've tried to make one before and it SO didn't work. Maybe the wrong kind of glue? We shall see!!
