The Holidays Are Approaching

It's time to start holiday crafting!  So, get out your favorite supplies and get cracking!  If you are looking for a fun-fresh way to incorporate some new supplies. . .I have an option for you.  Check out the digital stamp sets available at the Crafty Nomad.  I was recently given the opportunity to preview and create with these lovely Holiday images!  What a treat!  They are so easy to use. . and to have them stored on my computer desktop vs. my physical crafting desktop is a plus! :)  Please swing by Jo's blog and shop to see her amazing work. 
Here is one of the projects I created with her set:

Isn't that angel darling!!!  I simply cut out 4 pieces of paper (peach cardstock for her skin, plus the gold, green, and red stripe) to about 4.25 X 5.5 each.  I then adhered them to a plain piece of printer paper using a temporary adhesive (the 4 pieces of paper cover the 8 1/2 X 11 paper perfectly).  With my paper ready to go, I set up a project in PSE so that this sweet little angel would print out four times. . .once on each DP.  Easy-Peasy! :) 
Once the digital image was printed on each of my papers, I started to fussy-cut them.  I cut the wings and shoes out of the gold paper.  The dress out of the green paper.  The hymn book from the striped red paper.  And finally the hair, face and hands from the peach paper.  Once, that was done I simply pieced her back together and colored her hair and mouth with a few Copic markers.  I also cut out the halo and added some Pink Paislee glitter to it.
The final step to this project was to adhere her with dimensional foam square to a  green glittery music sheet paper, add buttons, and a black frame.
I love how this turned out. . . and can't wait to display her once the Christmas Holiday rolls around.
Thanks for stopping in!  More Crafty Nomad projects are in the works. . .so come back soon! :)

love, lisa
