Tis the Season Day 33, December 10th

This is a 2 month long hop to celebrate Fall/Autumn, Winter, Christmas and Craftmas and the hop ends December 20 at 11:55pm pacific!

I will be sharing today's crafty make on Leigh's info page...


I know it's the 10th of December but today I thought I would show you my December calendar pages.

First I have my mixed media one the base of which I am sure you have seen before...

The flip over section is in the same style as a lot of cards I have made this year.
Firstly a base of white card matted with the black then a paper from Stampin Up.
I added the Dyan Reaveley image, flower  and edge stamps with a little added colour from markers. I then cut out the sentiment words and added them randomly down the side.
I rather like the sentiment!

Next I have my other calendar page which I only got around to finishing today. 

I used a gelli plate pull to make the background and stamp the trees which I then cut out. These and the sentiment are from a Stampin Up Set Tree Angle.
I then added the gnome. This is a Lost Coast Designs stamp which I stamped, coloured with makers and cut out.

Happy Hopping!
