Neat & Tangled A Merry Christmas

Hi crafty friends! It’s time for one last, merry crafty session with Neat & Tangled. I love pulling together all my sets to find new combinations to use them, and today I decided to bring out all the little cute guys!

My all-time favorite has always been this little dog with reindeer antlers from the Get Yeti stamp set. From this set, also is the little snowman and the left penguin. The right penguin came from the Stay Cool stamp set. I stamped the images in a dark brown hybrid ink and colored them up with copic markers. I die cut the images out with the Get Yeti coordinating dies, and Stay Cool coordinating dies.

For my layout, I framed it with the foliage from the Magical Day stamp set, also stamped four of them in dark brown hybrid ink and colored with copic markers. I die cut these out with their coordinating dies.

I created a snowy ink blended background with Stormy Sky distress oxide and also die cut a curved snowy hill out of white card stock, which was gently blended with Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink.

For the front layer, I used Neenah Desert Storm card stock. I trimmed a small piece for the top, and a larger piece for the bottom. The bottom piece was also die cut with a scallop edge using the Scalloped dies. On the lower panel, I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Pageant stamp set. I love the large font.

With all the pieces ready, I can now finally assemble it altogether, with the mini scene built and the branches and front panel framing it, and the sentiment right below. Whew! That was a lot!
