Sneaky peep day 5

Have you ever seen an Elephant in a sheep skincoat and Ugg
i have no idea why i thought of this when i was colouring in this darling Humphrey image
she looks so cosy and warm just waiting to use that Mistletoe bless her.......

the design grew from those colours
i printed off this beautifull patterned paper from the cd distressed around the edges then glittered around the edge you can hardly see it but in picture but just added that bit of sparkle
use an embossing folder on white pearl card then punched the boarder with M/S Punch
matted and layered onto dark brown card stock with a satin ribbon and a die cut snow flake made from shrink plastic

i will try and share another sneaky peep later
thank you for popping by

Christmas Lantern and Humphrey snow is softly falling stamp

been itching to share this project with you all
it has a battery operated tea light inside
this lantern was made from A4 boxmaker card stock from crafters companion
i had to wait to finish it till i got my hands on the new Humphrey stamps  i just knew there would be the perfect image to decorate the he is coloured in with spectrum noir pens
 on this plate there are sentiments Snow Fun and Snow is softly falling he is just perfect......i love him!

once the lantern was made i sprayed it all over with the holografic glitter spray and added the  flowers sprays on the top  the handle and on the sides  on the inside i used dies and some silver mirri card so it refects the flickering candle light
the snow flakes i cut out with a die from acetate and covered with cut glass glitter im so chuffed with them they looked lovely so festive...
