My daughter just spent the last year living in Washington and going to school in Portland Oregon. She did manage to get a few great pics of the first snow of the season on her way to school in the wee hours of the morning. I thought the photo in this layout was beautiful. She purposefully left the footstep trail, then walked back around to take the picture. That's my daughter, like momma always trying to get that creative shot...
The new Magnificent Spruce Trees PreCut Set mimics the trees in the photo. They were perfect to stamp on the background.

The Book Frame 2 PreCut Set has 2 sizes and goes perfectly with Spellbinders Nestasbilities Labels 7 set..Oh, the little books you can create. I used 2 layers here for a dimensional effect.

LinkThe flowers were created with Petite Poinsettia PreCut Set from the last collection shown The Christmas Cheer Collection. These 2 different collection put together will give you endless possibilities for your stamping pleasure!! Amazing how well they go together! Of course the Poinsettis stamps coordinate with Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia Shapeabilities...How awesome is that!! No more tedious cutting!! A perfect match every time.
Just a closeup of the flower cluster...
I heat embossed a lilac color (ZING powder) onto the diecut flowers, then used Ranger Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass and Dusty Concord to color the flowers. The embossing acts like a resist and the foam applicator gave it such a soft and blended look. I love the way they turned out and the colors are beautiful together. I just touched the spots here and there with the lightest touch of tea Dye, just to tone down and antique the flowers a bit.
