I am soooooooo excited about these cute Christmas Frame projects!! I created Christmas Home Decor framed pieces that I will display on my mantle this Christmas season! I used lots of different Stampin' Up! framelits, punches, papers, and accessories.. I hope you enjoy this blog post and VIDEO TUTORIAL as I teach you how to create your own!
You can see that I made 2 of them.. an 8x10 framed piece and a 5x7 framed piece. I had so much fun I could not stop at one!
Watch the video below for some details and to see the Stampin' UP! supplies I used.
If you are watching this in an email feed, click HERE to see the video on YouTube.
In the 5x7 frame below, I used a smaller scale design, with a smaller fireplace, and the smaller Christmas stockings from the Santa's Sleigh thinlit set.
For all the details on how to create the fireplace, see the video above. I used the Hearth & Home thinlits with an inset of Brick Wall embossed cardstock.
The gray brick background on both pieces is from the Halloween Night designer paper pack, and the "floor" is crumb cake cardstock stamped with the Hardwood background stamp.
I have detailed instructions in the video above for the fireplace logs as well. I stamped them with the Hardwood background stamp and did some shading and coloring to make them look like logs.
For the larger 8x10 frame below, I added the window and made the fireplace larger.
You could take any portion of either of these framed pieces and create a card or tag with those design elements... you could do something with the fireplace, or the tree and window.. think about ways to use these ideas separately as well.
Below: These Christmas stockings are in from the Christmas Stockings thinlit die set, die cut in Cherry Cobbler, Emerald Envy and Whisper White. As you can see, I used a Project Life marker to write Mom, Dad and JB on them (for the 3 of us) :). NOEL is also found in the same thinlit die set and I placed it on the mantel. The fireplace is created with the Hearth and Home thinlits and some embossed Cherry Cobbler Bricks.
Use some heavy duty wire cutters and snip off the ring on the top of the Gingerbread man trinket so that you can add him to the Gingerbread houses! :)
Below: Gingerbread men added to the cut out Gingerbread houses.. they are cut by hand with paper snips from the Candy Cane Lane Designer paper (part of the Buy 3 Get 1 Free offer good through 10/31/16).
Below: the window is also created with the Hearth & Home thinlits, and I put a piece of Fancy Frost embossed paper behind it as well as the reindeer die cut. I made simple curtains by cutting some of a doily.
Above: the Tree is die cut from the Santa's Sleigh framelit set and the presents are all just small squares and rectangles cut from scraps from the Candy Cane Lane Designer paper. The red bows are punched using Real Red cardstock and the Holly Berry Builder punch. The tree topper start is a die cut in the Santa's Sleigh framelit set, I cut it out of Daffodil Delight cardstock and colored it with a Gold Wink of Stella pen.

Above: As noted above and in the video above, this 5x7 frame is just basically a smaller version of the big one.. everything is scaled down a bit. Smaller fireplace with smaller stockings, smaller presents, no gingerbread houses.
The tree is die cut using the Santa's Sleigh framelits out of a piece of the Presents & Pinecone paper, and sponged with Cucumber Crush ink and "winked" with the clear Wink of Stella... here is how I did that:
The smaller Christmas stockings on this piece were die cut from the Santa's Sleigh framelits using the Warmth & Cheer designer paper stack. The logs were stamped with the Woodgrain background stamp, and I share complete instructions for those with you in the video above in this blog post.
I hope you enjoyed this project and the video tutorial!! The frames are from the "M store" and yes, the cherry cobbler one was already distressed... great find! :)
