Christmas is coming

Hi everyone!

Can you believe we're already in to mid august? What happend to summer? Where did the days go?
Anyway, time to look forward, instead of missing those days of sun. For me, next on the agenda is Christmas!!! I know, that there is a lot going on for the rest of you. But in Sweden, neither Halloween or Thanksgiving is big. Well, that depends... Halloween is upcoming, what kids don't jump on an opportunity to celebrate a weekend of dressing up and getting free candy - sugar rush!
I'm sure I will embrace that weekend soon enough, but as my son is not known to sugar yet, I think I'll wait. So Christmas... my favorite time of the year!! Hoping for lots of snow this year!!!

So here is my DT-project for The Rubber Buggy, Kellie has already started to fill the store with this years new releases. But I turned to last years goodies, that I yet haven't finished playing with.

I free based the shape of a Christmas wreath. Is that the word? I hope you get what I mean by the pictures. I used first and second stamping to create some depht and texture. I hope you understand which technique I mean by this picture. Where I have stamped the first impression and then stamped a second impression, without reinking my stamp.

First and second stamping
After I stamped all my items, branches, pinecones and holly berries. I added some ice stickles to really make some of the decorations pop. The red ribbon with the bell is from my stash, something I've probably saved from some old packaging. The background with snowflakes is made with a stamp from the same stamp set by Lawn Fawn and I've used embossing ink to achieve a tone on tone look.

I hope you like Christmas, you'll be seeing a lot more Christmas project from me - wink, wink:)
