Sleigh bells ring.......

Good morning all, 

Today I have another home décor piece that I absolutely loved making, using Anna Marie Designs  
 MDF Sleigh and her positive and negative Poinsettia stamps, & her This Way For Christmas Stamp too.......

I started by giving the sleigh and the base a good coat of white gesso and leaving it to dry. I then added some gold using a Krylon Gold Leafing Pen around the edges of the sleigh. 
Using Rose Red Versacolor Ink and the negative solid Anna Marie Designs Poinsettia Stamp I inked and stamped the image several times over the sleigh back and front. I used a gold brilliance pad from my stash to add some little berries twigs in between the poinsettias and these were from the This Way For Christmas Stamp.....

I inked up the This Way for Christmas Stamp with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and embossed it with Wow sparkle Powder on to Kraft Card. I re-stamped and embossed  it again  and then cut out the whole thing totally and then just three of the words on the second stamped image to 3D forwards.........

 I then inked up the Anna Marie Designs solid Poinsettia Stamp with the Red Rose Versacolor ink and stamped three images on to white card. Once dry and using the Versafine Vintage Sepia again, I used the Open positive A M D Poinsettia stamp and stamped three images on top of the previous stamped images and embossed them with the Wow Sparkle Powder. If you offset them slightly you get the lovely dotty effect on the petals shown in the picture below........ 

I then cut them out and shaped and added a Rhinestone sparkler in to the centre of one of them. I used some punched holly leaves and die cut spruce and mini cones and twigs to bring together the design and finished off with some Gold Stickles.......

I really enjoyed this creation and intend doing a lot more home décor pieces, so keep tuned in to this space.
I hope that you are having a great weekend and I will be back next week with some more inspiration.

Bye for now,
