Christmas Configuration Box by Deanna M
I picked up a small Tim Holtz configuration box and decided to do it up for Christmas. I started with the Idea-Ology Woodlands Miniatures. I sprayed these with some Meadow Adirondack Color Wash spray. This is a special order item but just ask. Once they were dry I used some Glossy Accents to adhere some of the Ranger Tinsel to my trees. I then added some "ornaments" to my trees and red "berries" to my wreath. My ornaments are beads and are adhere also with Glossy Accents.
While that dried I covered my box. I used the Tim Holtz Pap(er Stash Holiday Past paper pack. (Looks like Cutters Creek is out of this but please ask if you want it.) I used Inksenntials Glue and Seal to adhere my paper. I then used some Tissue Tape to cover all the seams. I inked the tape with some Festive Berries and Evergreen Bough Distress ink.
Once everything was dry I used some Glossy Accents to adhere my trees and wreath in my box. I also cut the word JOY out at 3/4" and inked it with some distress stains in barn door and brushed pewter (another special order item but don't hesitate to ask). I adhered them to my box as well with Glossy Accents. I also added the mini lantern to my box. Doesn't it look cute all lit up?
WOW! Silver Ultra embossing powder to create several layers and then etch them with a damask stamp from my stash. (Here is a link to the video I did showing this technique.)
I also applied some foil to some white card stock and die cut some snowflakes using my eBosser. I adhered the snowflakes and the corners with some Glossy Accents. Finally for my feet, I took some wooden beads and stained them with some Brushed Pewter Metallic Distress Stain (another special order item but please ask) and applied them with some Glossy Accents. I cut the Christmas Blessing from the Tis the Season Cartridge and applied it with Glossy Accents. I covered the word Blessing alos with the Pewter Metallic Distress Stain.
