Winter Frost DSP Curly Wreath

If you haven't made one of these curly wreaths yet you are missing out! It took about 2 hours from start to finish including a few breaks. It was worth every minute!!
 I started with a 14 inch green Styrofoam base available at most craft stores. There are smaller bases available but like they say, Go big or go home! The curls are made from the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper cut into 1/2 inch strips. I used both of the foil accented papers and 5 out of the 10 other sheets in the pack. There are two each of 5 double sided designs and 2 foil accented pieces in each pack. To make the curls, hold each 1/2 inch strip in the center and use a bone folder to curl the ends like you would a piece of ribbon. Then use a straight pin to attach each curl onto the base.
Don't try to follow a pattern while adding the curly pieces. I gave that up after about the fifth piece. I jumbled the curled pieces up and just started grabbing them.

Santa's List

Yes, it is that time of the year! If you don't have an idea for your Christmas cards yet this one takes a while but it is gorgeous! I colored Santa's face, hand, and hat with markers. I added Dazzling Details to his beard and hair. The silver glimmer paper dots (office hole punch) make the snowflakes pop. The snowflakes are also popped up with Dimensionals under each layer. Don't forget to stamp the words on the whisper white background before you run it through your Big Shot.

Don't think that Halloween Happiness is just for Halloween. To make this Thanksgiving card I used  markers and colored in only the pumpkins that I wanted. After I stamped the pumpkins I punched them out (1-1/4 inch punch) so I could move them around under the punched designer paper (1 inch punch) to get them exactly where I wanted them.
I used Tags 4 You for the words. It is available in a bundle which includes both the set and the punch at a 15% discount. I stamped the words in Early Espresso and punched it out with the  Label Bracket Punch. Then I stamped them again in Tangerine Tango and punched out just the center with a 1-1/4 inch circle punch. I used a Dimensional to adhere it to the Espresso punch lining up the Vanilla swirls.
This would make a cute fall scrapbook page, too!
