    Sweet Tidings Ornament + Giveaway + FREE Gift!

    Filed under Art Projects, Bella's Corner, Christmas, Design Team, Giveaways, Newsletters

     December 14th Update:
     The Sweet Ornaments Giveaway Winner is…

    Don’t you just love it when the same art supply can be used for more than just one thing? For instance  — there are the Mini Chipboard Fireplace Mantle Die-Cuts that the Design Team used for Fireplace & Stocking Scenes (and inside a Christmas Wishes Shadow Box Book), but Shannon Tuttle has taken them a step further!

    Shannon used the New and On Sale! Pediments Die – Set of 3 and by simply attaching 2 pediments to the top and bottom of the On Sale! Mini Chipboard Fireplace Mantle Die-Cuts this created the lovely Sweet Tidings Ornament! If you’re really inspired these would make lovely holiday cards as well that the receiver could then use as a yearly ornament.

    The color palette of iced country blue and pale yellow is so serene; don’t you think? The image from the Bouguereau #4 (Angels) Collage Sheet (Psst! On Sale! Along with the ENTIRE Angels/Saints Collage Sheet section!) along with the color palette works for just about any time of the year. Or how about adding an image from one of the Valentine or Easter Collage Sheets instead of a Christmas image?

    Here is a helpful hint from Shannon about using the die:

    Since this die cuts and embosses you really need to place the paper face down on the die so it embosses the correct side. I learned this one the hard way!

    - Mini Chipboard Fireplace Mantle Die-Cuts
    - Bouguereau #4 (Angels) Collage Sheet
    - Pediments Die – Set of 3 New and On Sale!
    - Tiny Paper Roses
    - Acrylic Bead Sprays
    - White Pearl Stamen
    - Antique Silver Lacy Snowflakes
    - Silver Snowflake Charms
    - Waterfall Stickles
    - Distress Paints – Winter Color Set

    Most everything from Shannon’s artwork is included in today’s Giveaway! (Ok… I did not include the die!) More new goodies are below, including info on that FREE gift!

    Hey, before I tell you about today’s Giveaway, let me tell you about the FREE Gift Kit! The Christmas Tag Trims Gift Kit is an exclusive Alpha Stamps' mini kit of fibers, ribbons, and 2 manila tags, inspired by Teri Calia’s New and On Sale! Christmas Tags Collage Sheet! Lots of choices from fuzzy yarns to shiny silk or rayon ribbons — perfect to tie a gift tag on your Christmas presents!

    (Psst! ALL of the Christmas Collage Sheets are On Sale! See the Sale Section for more info.)

    This mini kit of fibers and manila tags is FREE for all orders over $20! More info here!

    Ok.. back to the Giveway: A Sweet Ornaments Giveaway! It’s a study in contrasts, as the Giveaway includes lots of the cool blues, whites, and the angel collage sheet from Shannon’s ornament AND the new Christmas Tags Collage Sheet (plus the Christmas Tag Trims Gift Kit).
