Sweet Inspiration - Warning inspiration overload (AKA looooong post)

Hi

I am so glad my computer is back online.

While it was down I got to do some creating, especially for Lauren's My Timeless Templates challenge and the challenge over on the Winter Wonderland blog. I have a ton of pictures so I'm going to dive right in.

First up, I used the My stocking stuffer template a FREE download , I reduced the template to a quarter of the size and printed it out onto my card stock. I wanted it this small as I want to be able to hang them on a small centerpiece tree. I will then place a Lindt Truffle inside to give to each guest on their departure. I got my inspiration from these Lindt truffles:




Here's my mini stocking

I used a snowflake stamp to make the snowflake accent paper.


Next up I used the Pretty Petals Template and took my inspiration from the good old candy cane. I came up with this:




Pretty straight forward, kept it plain and simple, but feel it came out well.

Third and lastly I used the Milk made template in both the large and petite versions and was inspired by this lollipop



 First the larger version. I used Dustin Pike digi stamps and although you can't see from the pics I stamped a snowflake pattern on the blue card stock.

 





Secondly the petite version.This is also a digi stamp, I forget now who it is from. I used my scalloped scissors to cut the roof tiles and the snow is textured paint I painted on.




The two together to get a size comparisson.




And finally the whole lot together.













Thanks for looking
Paola

Oh my gosh Paola - these are fantastic creations - you have been busy - I love all of them from the petite stocking favor - what a great idea to hang on a tree and the petal candy cane inspired box is beautiful and then the snowman "house" is just adorable. Thank you so much for playing. Come visit my blog on Saturday for a new sketch challenge! :-)
