I have been Soo wanting to try my hand at a Mini muffin tin Advent Calendar for Ages, so when I first saw the New Christmas Countdown set, I knew Exactly what I wanted to do with it! lol 8-) And then when I saw the Super Adorable Reindeer Food and Very Merry sets, I was thrilled, cause I just knew they would all work together Perfectly! And I must say I'm really pretty Happy with how my Advent Calendar came out! Here's a couple of detail pics top and bottom...
All my mats and BG layers were created with The New Handmade Holiday Project Pantry Kit. My Advents Christmas Countdown numbers were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and cut out with the help of a 1" circle punch and then shaded with a touch of Vintage Photo Distress ink. My fun little ornanaments, mittens, candy canes and holly leaves were stamped with Cherry Cobler and Old Olive inks & cut out & matted up with their coordinating Very Merry Outlines and Very Merry Scallop Dies. My Sweet little Reindeer were stamped with Crumb cake and fussy cut out after I added their eyes and Cute little Red pearl noses.. All my Pretty snowflakes were created with the New Make a Snowflake Die set, kraft & snowcap paint dauber and all topped off with Sweet Adhesive pearls. All my images were popped up with foam tape and I added buttons and gold ribbon here and there for a touch of sparkle...
Here you can see that all my Advent calendar's pieces attach to the Mini muffin Tin with little adhesive magnet strips I cut from our Magnetic Sheets. And to finish it all up, I filled all the muffin cups with little treats and topped it of with a Big Pretty bow! And there you have it, my Very first Advent Calendar Ever! Yay! 8-)
Here are the New Taylored dies I used on my project...
Next up, I have another Fun little project that features The new Holly Jolly Shadowbox Card Kit, The Rejoice Sentiment set,
This is Really a Super Neat little kit! 8-) It pretty much comes with everything you need, to create a Fabulous Shadowbox card.. All you really need to add is your imagination... 8-) I shaded up my panels with a combination of Antique Linen and Aged Mahogany Distress inks, Adhered my Nativity Border Die cut in sections, added two little strips of sheet music dp from Authentique's Festive 6x6 collection below them for a bit of interest and stamped my Rejoice Sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black..
Another really Neat feature of the Shadowbox card is that it folds up into little package.. Soo Sweet! 8-) I created a slide Label with the New Labels Stakclets 1 and stamped another sentiment from the Rejoice set, added a few Taylored Felt holly leaves cut out with the Very Merry Outline Dies, added a couple adhesive pearls and tied it all up with some natural twill ribbon...How Fun is that! 8-)
