Hey crafty friends, Marine here, I’m so happy to be back on the blog with this lovely scene at the Christmas market featuring a sweet little girl and her dog deciding on which items they should buy to decorate the house for the holiday season. As always I picked a lot of images from different sets to build and furnish my little scene:
Frosty littles – wooden trees
Christmas is coming – a present
Little holiday extras – a small present and a stocking
Cocoa party – the merry xmas banner
Frosty mornings – the dog
My snowman – the little girl
Deck the halls – the bow, wreath and ornaments
Halloween party – the string of lights
Snow play – the hat and birds
North pole littles – the ornaments, stocking, present and north pole sign
I stamped all those images using an alcohol marker friendly black ink, cut them all using the coordination dies and colored everything using my alcohol markers in very bright and colorful tones.
Once the coloring was done, I cut the elements out of a light brown woodgrain cardstock to build the stand using the Gallery frame #2 and to make those Christmas stand pieces less flat I colored the edges using brown alcohol markers.
Next I cut another frame out of some thick cardboard and glued my woodgrain frame on top of it to bring dimension to the stand. And then I attached my frame on a piece of brown plaid pattern paper to create the back of the stand. And I also glued a few more pieces to finish building the stand: the bottom part to create the counter, the scalloped strip at the top of that counter to make it more pretty, and then the remaining strip to create a shelf to put the presents and accessories on.
I attached the Christmas stand on a 5,5 x 4,25″ snowflake pattern paper panel, and cut a snow border using the Summer woods scene die that I attached at the bottom of the panel using foam squares. For the roof, I cut two scalloped strips using a die from the Basic borders die set: a white one and a dark brown one. I attached the white one on top of the dark brown one, and stuck that roof element above de frame to totally finish the Christmas stand.
Next I assembled and attached all my cute images to fill the stand and give life to my little scene. And once everything was glued in place, I white heat embossed the Merry Christmas banner on red cardstock and attached it at the top of the roof. And as always I added a bunch of details and highlights using a white gel pen to make the images pop and bring more holiday spirit to the scene.
And that’s it! I hope that you like this super adorable little scene at the Christmas market. Feel welcome to click on the thumbnail below to watch the process video. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!
