Swirling Snowflakes Sneak Peek, and Blog Candy Alert


Here's a little Christmas card I made using a new Backgrounder stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms called Swirling Snowflakes, which is coming to the Farm on October 16.  I stamped the snowflake background in white StazOn on acetate, then attached a panel from a wintery scene in the Winter Wonderland paper pack by Thomas Kinkade.  I added some Stickles and a sentiment from the Night Before Christmas stamp set.  This is a fairly quick and easy Christmas card with some "whizbang" that could be good for mass-producing (you just have to wait a little for the StazOn and the Stickles to dry, but the actual production time is pretty short).

These gorgeous Thomas Kinkade papers (HERE and HERE) are a great time-saver during the holidays.  If you're like me and need some pretty packaging ideas, then you might want to head on over to the CHF Creative Blog for a wonderful tutorial by Tracy Harp.  She shows you how to use these beautiful papers to make a pretty box and gift tag set for the holidays.  And while you're there, be sure to give Tracy a little love by leaving a comment to be entered to win a pack of TK papers AND the Vintage Christmas Expressions stamp set!  It's never too early.... :)
