And now we hop!!!


SANDY Claus is Coming to Town!

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


Here's my project for our final day:
I made a fun box perfect for gift giving.
It's the perfect size to put a small present in and put under the tree for a special recipient!


For today's project I started with a cardboard box from Hobby Lobby.
I painted it with Deco Art Acrylic Paint and let it dry.



When dry, I stenciled Rain onto the top of the box with Pearlescent Embossing Paste.




I stenciled one Southwest Snowflake on each side of the box.



Then I die cut Leafless Tree out of Core'dinations Cardstock.  I sanded the tree to make it snowy.
Then I stamped, colored and cut out Jumbo Cling Rubber Snowman Woodland and adhered it to the box.



I created the "snow" with "snow"....Spoonful of Snow embossing powder and elements!



The final touch was to add the little critters that come with Jumbo Cling Rubber Snowman Woodland



One final view!



Thanks for hopping with us today!
