Edwin with the Christmas Lantern


I can't believe how fast the weekend went. I got some cleaning and lots of cooking done. And of course I made some time for crafting. My husband bought me 7 new magnolia stamps for Christmas plus Santa Claus got me the Vagabond! So I had to use one of my new stamps.

I know Christmas is over but I couldn't resist using Edwin with the Christmas Lantern. I used a chipboard house to make a tree ornament. Edwin was colored with Copic Markers and I used paper for his sweater and hat to add some dimension. I used Memory Box Yuletide Paper and the Snowflake border & Window die. The inside of the window is paper from a Christmas Martha Stewart pack. I painted the window with Creme de Cocoa Glimmer Mist. The edges of the house and window were inked with Iced Spruce Distress Ink. I added snowflakes using a Martha Stewart snowflake punch. To finish off the look I added light iced blue pearls and the Tim Holtz Holiday Muse Token. Aqua velvet ribbon was added to hang the ornament.

I added Merry Christmas to the back using felt letters that I colored with Copic and I added a snowflake too.




Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
