White Winter meets Holiday Home

I think I mentioned before that I like combining stamp sets.  This card combines Holiday Home and White Winter. The snow looks a bit pinkish, but that's not unusual at dawn in the winter.

I started by sponging the sky using Marina Mist and Pacific Point inks. The snowflake stamp wasn't working on this sky, so I took some white acrylic paint, and with the end of a paint brush I dabbed white paint all over the sky to simulate snow flalling.
Then the trees were stamped with Memento ink.
On a separate piece of Whisper White one of the houses of Holiday Home was stamped with Memento ink and coloured with blendabilities.  It was then die cut using the Holiday Home framelit after which it was attached to the card front between the trees.
Some dazzling diamonds was added to the ground.

Stamps: White Christmas, More Merry Messages
Inks: Memento, Blendabilities, Marina Mist, Pacific Point,
Papers: Pacific Point, Whisper White, Silver glimmer
Accessories: White acrylic paint (non SU), Scallop border punch, Decorative dots Folder, 3/4" Marina Mist chevron ribbon, Dazzling diamonds, Bitty banner framelit, dimensionals

Octagonal Box with Removable lid

I had so much fun making this 8 sided box and lid - as well as the flower decorating the lid.  This is thanks to an excellent video here which provided me with all the information I needed.  I cased the box, but used different designer paper.

Inks: Baked Brown sugar, Early Espresso
Papers: Basic Black, Typeset DSP, Baked Brown suger
Accessories: Mini Milk Carton die, Baked Brown ruffled stretch ribbon, circle framelit, large rhinestone
Punches for flower:  Scallop circle die, 2 1/2" scallop circle punch, 1 1/2" scallop circle punch, 7/8" scallop circle punch

I intend to make more of these boxes.
