I chose to create a trio of shadow boxes for a display ready for Christmas.

I can hang this on my wall or pop it on a shelf, wherever the fancy takes 😉

Here is my Shadow Box
decor item for Christmas.

I have used a selection of gorgeous stamp sets and DSP for this gorgeous decor item.
For a full list of items please refer to the carousel at the end of my blog.

Here is a quick template using 12 x 12 DSP shadow box each score line is 2cm apart. So score at 2,4,6,and 8 cm then turn and score again until all four edges have been scored. Turn and score two lines 4 cm long 1 at 10cm. and another 2cm before the other four score lines. Refer to picture below. Turn and score opposite ends identically.
Trim away corners following xxxx cut lines.

 Follow instructions as above to complete the shadow boxes..

The stamp sets used are Carols of Christmas stamp set and the Christmas Pines stamp set.

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Special Guest Jenny Hall

Image may contain: text

Welcome Back everyone 😊
Today I am hopping with the Crazy Crafters Team and special guest Jenny Hall

We The Crazy Crafters have each chosen a project of Jenny's to CASE (Copy And Selective Edit)
You are currently here me me (Kim Oliver) and I have a full list of all participants closer to the end of my blog.

Here is the project I have chosen of Jenny's to CASE.

vintage style

Jenny created her card using the Cracked Glass technique using layers of heated embossing powder.
This was something I haven't tried before, I thought...
Why Not!

Here is my card.
I used the same layout for this technique as it has an old world feel with it that this technique deserves.

Dragonfly Daze

I am over the moon with my first attempt!

Before my next attempt I MUST order some more embossing powder though 😲 lol. I just need to do this some more! It's so much fun hahaha.

I followed Jenny's instructions and layered the embossing powder 11 times, but my crack wasn't sharp. I ended up with more of a crazed effect. 
Which I quite like BTW 😍

HERE is Jenny's video showing how she made her card.

Angled View

#KOCreationscards #Crackedglasstechnique #Dragonflydreams #Butterflybasics #Inspiredbynature #Cardmaking #Stampinup

To create the scene I used two stamp sets. Dragonfly Dreams and Butterfly Basics.
I used the Shimmery white card stock to stamp my scene onto.
I masked over the dragonfly after the original stamping. I then stamped the fern leaf over the top. Being masked this gives the effect of having the fern fronds behind the dragonfly.
I coloured the dragonfly using the NEW STAMPIN BLENDS!!!
