Winter Church Lantern

It may only be the beginning of November, but I am certainly feeling the urge to create Christmas themed projects! I'm hoping that by getting started earlier this year, I might actually get all the ideas in my head created by January 1st (futility perhaps? lol). I am especially excited by the possibilities of Tim Holtz's new Village Dwelling dies. I made a Halloween themed scene (see it HERE) and I have great plans for making little houses everywhere! For a Christmasy feel, I made a glittery little church and placed it in a serene snow scene:

I wish the camera captured all the sparkle in this. I used lots of glitter, glimmer mist and pearlized paint. It's a magical setting!

I topped it off with a stamped tag, charms and matching ribbon:

I'm entering this into Anything But Cute's November challenge, It's Ornamental. The challenge is to create a Christmas ornament or decor piece.

  2. Lisa, Your winter church scene is absolutely beautiful! I can almost feel the crisp cold of winter and taste the snowflakes. I love how you created your background with Mini Weathered Winter stamps.

  3. Lisa, you already know how much I love this gorgeous creation and I love how you placed your little scent in the lantern - so beautiful. Thanks so much for joining in with our 'It's Ornamental' challenge at Anything But Cute. Hugs, Anne xx

  4. What a fabulous wintery scene and placing it inside the lantern makes it so perfect for use as a Christmas decor item. Love all the details you added with the tree line stamped in the background, the bottle brush trees in the foreground and the topper you made. Thanks for joining us at Anything But Cute.

  5. Wow Lisa, another fabulous 3D project, outstanding!! I can't believe all the detail that you put into your winter wonderland church scene, there's so much to admire! Love the fluffy snow, I wish I was just a few inches tall so I could roll around in it! So gorgeous, truly a decoration that will catch everyone's eye!

    Thank you so much for joining us at Anything But Cute for our 'It's Ornamental' challenge! Hugs, Pamellia DT :)
