Cinnamon Tea Anyone?

Hello folks, hope you're all having a great weekend. I'm here today with news of yet another giveaway over at the Studio 12 Creative Team blog to celebrate the launch of the Studio 12 Picknix Collection 2 CD - Gingerbread Twist and if you haven't guessed from the name, it's all about Christmas!
The CD launched yesterday on Create & Craft TV and was a massive success as always - if you were watching you might have seen my creation below so do read on if you'd like to know how I made it.

I started off with a blank shadow box which I painted with blue acrylic paint. I then printed off one of the gorgeous holly design papers on to tissue paper. If you haven't done this before, it's quite easy as all you need to do is dry iron a piece of white tissue paper around 3cm all round larger than A4 then attach this to a piece of thin card, wrapping it round the back and securing with tape. Just be careful about getting it as flat as you can so it doesn't catch in the printer.
I attached the printed tissue to the frame with Ranger Glue and Seal and rubbed paint round the edges.
I then printed out a variety of the images inspired by the sentiment which says "Come to my table and share with me gingerbread, cookies and cinnamon tea" - I think this is just lovely and perfect for the kitchen.
I covered the inside of the frame with some of the gorgeous distressed look gingerbread man paper then added the cut out embellishments which I rounded out with an embossing ball tool before adding with foam tape.

The Creative Team have more really gorgeous creations to show you so do pop over and enter the giveaway, there's always a fabulous prize and it's very easy to try and win it.

Have a great day and see you tomorrow with news of the first September challenge at Make My Monday as we're back and raring to go after our Summer break and you're going to love the new challenge theme!
Hugs, Fliss xx
