I love that Claudine stuff!!!!

It has been so fun, for the last couple of days, playing with the Studio Line that Claudine created!!!

This little gift set was the product of trying a few things, and just letting the layers take shape.

First I stamped the sleigh and "Dashing through the snow" sentiment onto Bazzill crosshatch cardstock with the gloss multi-medium and heat set it. Then I washed the green paint over the top of the cardstock and then with a baby wipe, cleaned the paint off of the stamped areas so they could show up better. Then I used the baby wipe to apply light layers of Peeled paint Distress ink and Adirondack Stream ink, then heat set it. I stamped the snowflakes from the "Warm Winter Wishes" set by Kim Hughes with Versamark and embossed them with Glacier White embossing powder. The December stamp of the month (Spruce branch) was then stamped with the Versamark and had the white embossing powder heat set over that. Another layer of Versamark, and then Evergreen embossing powder over the top of that and heat set as well, and I was done!

Tomorrow, a tutorial on how to make the "gift box" !!! I loved doing the engineering on figuring out how to make this! Can't wait to share it too! But it will be easier to share with pics, and I will need some sunlight to make that happen!

And those cookies are from the Paper Crafts Gourmet cookbook! We added one cup of chocolate chips to the cookie dough, and one tablespoon of peppermint oil and two crushed peppermint candy canes to the frosting! DELISH!!! We love this book, so I am not giving out the rest of the recipe, you will have to go get the book, or tell a loved one that you need it for a holiday gift, it is so FAB!!!
