Hot Of The Press Christmas cards

A very Merry Christmas to all.
It is not a white one, rather a wet one. We are just having a dry spell after a night and morning of downpours and gusty winds.
The following cards are made with Hot Of The Press crafting inspirations items from their magazine bought at WHSmith.
Paper and card: red American Crafts card, HOTP paper.
Colour: gold embossing powder, aloe-vera dew drop ink, clear embossing powder.
Embellishments: ribbon and dazzles from HOTP.
HOTP recess card made from Papermania kraft card.
Red Glimmer Mist used to add sparkle to the background square. The sentiment is from HOTP and the bow from my stash, some dazzles add sparkle to the poinsettias.
 A tiny card made with some of the HOTP embellishments.

Christmas decor 2012 (3)

A little post box, made with the Cricut, Tags, Bags, Boxes and more 2, has been decorated with a Magnolia stamp; Tilda is holding her little lamb.
 Paper: My Minds Eye Christmas stack
 Not a very clear picture, but you get the idea.

Puffy snow on the edges, 2 chains of holly leaves made with a Spellbinders die and coloured with Twinkling H2O and Cosmic Shimmer paint.

I have stuffed the inside of the letter box with handmade and stamped little letters, tied together with twine.

Christmas decor 2012 (1)

I have developed a habit of making Christmas decorations every year. This year I have made six items and this is the first one. Most of my decorations can be hung. I hang them from the ceiling lights or on the banister of the staircase.
 Colour: Caran d'Ache pencils, Stickles Diamond and Gold, Distress ink.

I made this hanger from red card and cut a Marianne Design die 8 times and glued them together. All 6 sides have been decorated with Stampers Anonymous stamps from Tim Holz.
