I started by heat embossing the tree, the present and the star in white embossing powder on some watercolour cardstock. If you look closely, I stamped a couple of stockings as well but messed up and overlapped them. It’s ok, i ended up cutting that side off :).
Thank you so much for stopping by today!!
I used distress inks to color different fun backgrounds. Dressed up my flamingos to enjoy a cold winter.
More closer images.
Thank you all for stopping by and have a great weekend.
Here’s a small tour of my creative space! I’m really happy with the results. It’s missing a few personal touches, I haven’t decided what exactly I want to put on the walls.
This is the view as you enter! #iloveikea
That used to be a walk-in closet! I decided to remove the doors for easy entry. Now, not only I want a door but also a huge lock!!! Lev goes in there constantly, with his mini bucket! 🙂
Better View! It’s like a mirror image! With the “mess” 🙂
This is I think my favorite part of the studio. My station! It was a challenge to find something that would fit perfectly and had drawers. Cube shelves are a HUGE bonus. I keep my stamps in white bins and dies in square clear containers (if you live in Canada you can get them cheaper at Winners and/or Home Sense). I also use the same containers to store large stamp sets (like Tim Holtz, My Favourrite Things, Altenew, stencils and background rubber stamps.)
I love this tray, it’s actually for make up but I like the handle. I can just pick it up and move it to the table when I need it. The wall container is from IKEA. You can look it up here. I store my ‘essentials’ like scoring boards, paper trimmer, foam tape, cutting boards, it fits all that. I don’t really like using baby wipes, I like to use car detailing towels or Lawn Fawn shammy. This container is perfect to keep your stamp cleaner towel moist and smell – free. Thanks for the tip Jennifer McGuire.
Lastly is the desk area. Yes it’s a heater, and believe it or not, I use it in the summer too. Since the studio is in the basement, it can get cold. I usually wear a long sleeve shirt when I’m down here working. Lev’s got his own little desk.
Thanks for stopping by!
