Whew!  Now onto the projects!  I’m sharing a project that I designed especially for today.  It features some of the Optional Add-Ons:
I was super intrigued the the Paper Layering Wooden Door and couldn’t wait to give it a try!  My base is a Blush Mix Layering Paper panel that has been stamped with the Designer Woodgrain in Red Royal Mid-Tone Shadow Ink.  

I placed the door frame cut where I wanted it positioned on the Blush panel.  Check out the door hardware that comes with the set…love all the detail work.

The chalkboard sign is from the Santa’s Door Accessories stamp set.  

I love the contrast of the deep red and black, how about you?  

Before you go, I did want to share a project that I made especially for a Countdown to Creativity post.  All stamps + dies are from the Main kit:

Isn’t the Frost Sequin Mix perfect for the shaker card?!  I thought that little scenery had to be part of a shaker!

That’s it for me today…I can’t wait to hop around and check out how everyone was inspired.  Next up is the awesome Ilina Crouse!

  4. Oh the door die is so cute – I saw it and was trying to think of how to use it but your red wood door is adorable!

  5. Love what you did with your first card, just adorable! It looks like Santa Claus is about to appear behind the door :). FAB kit, so many elements in the stamp set… this is when your second card shows a lovely Christmas village!
    Fortunately there are also great add-ons!

  12. Nice cards! That door car is really nice especially with the wood grain stamped on it. The scene looks great with the shaker in the background.

  29. I just love that door though! The way the colors compliment each other, beautiful, and let me just say, that red though!!! Amazing! This door looks so real, like I could walk right up and knock on it! I can picture a little Elf peeking around the door, only opened far enough to see who would dare interrupt their important work!!! Too cute! Please enter my name in the giveaway. I would have ordered the set right off, but money's an issue, so I've got my fingers crossed for this! I want so badly to be able to make my ideas for this set! Oh… Oh… I can just picture it now!!!

  30. Beautiful card!! Yes, I do love the black on the deep red too. I also really like the the wood grain look that stamp gave. Just beautiful!!
