SANDY Claus is Coming to Town!


Yes...SANDY Claus! All of this week, the Stampendous and Dreamweaver teams are playing with a mix of their products, along with some wonderful, SAND-ABLE papers from Core'dinations. Join us as we sand our way to the "core" of all things Christmas and the Holiday season. Of course, there will be prizes, and we give away the best...this time with a mix of fun Core'dinations products as well. To be one of three prize package winners, follow the posted link lists each day, leave a comment, and winners will be selected from these comments at the beginning of next week. Here is what you might win:


Here's our post for today:

Fireside Mouse by Pam Hornschu
Pam has used a great mix of stencils and stamps on this creation. The darling little House Mouse of "Gifts to Tie" from Stampendous is busy wrapping gifts by the light of our Stockings by the Fire stencil design, paste-embossed in Matte Black, and colored with Splendor ink and Metallic F/X powders. A bit of paper-piecing completed the stockings. The background of this glowing panel was machine embossed on Core'dinations' Glitter Silk cardstock with the Stone Wall pattern, and sanded to reveal the design. All of these elements were adhered over a layering of red, white, and green Core'dinations cardstock...the green cardstock having been machine-embossed with the Dreamweaver Plaid/Stripes stencil, and sanded to show off the pattern. Pam added this fun and amusing sentiment from Stampendous to finish it off.

I loved the fire and fireplace. Great to have a stencil to make a stand-out piece.
It looks so nice, rather than having to stamp it.
