Welcome to the Taylored Expressions Blast From the Past October Blog Hop! Our focus this month is for the upcoming holiday and Christmas season. We were to either use a TE holiday stamp set, or give a holiday spin to any other TE stamp set. We were also given this wonderful sketch:
I chose to use the stamp set Holiday Wonder, and wanted to create my own magical home. I first stamped the house in white, then fine linen, then cherry cobbler, and then paper pieced the layers. I also cut out the two windows and clear embossed then to make them shiny (it's a little hard to see in the photo). I also paper pieced the curtains, and stamped the Christmas tree in the window. I added lots of glitter, some sparkly fluff for the snow, and then put together the background.
"Enjoy the Magic of Christmas"
I also made the door to open, and added a little sentiment. My son had great fun holding the door open!
