Spellbinders Flea Market Finds ~ Mixed Media Monday

My projects today give focus to Spellbinders Flea Market Finds Christmas release from Cathe Holden.  If you know me at all, you know I love anything vintage and everything in this release has me wishing for more!

I made this mixed media entry into my stone paper art journal from Create Happiness.  

The Home For The Holidays 6x9" paper pad is filled with nostalgia and holiday charm!  I covered the journal page using this sheet of advertisement and distressed around the edges.  I stamped some script, randomly over the page and added some white polka dots using texture paste and a polka dot stencil from Heidi Swapp.

I also stamped some images using Compliments of the Season Clear Stamp Set and added this amazing Christmas tree die cut from the Christmas Pines Miscellany Die Cuts, along with a stamp image from the same pack.

I finished the corners off using a bit more of the beautiful, patterned paper.  I simply cut a small square, ripped it corner to corner and added Distress Oxide Ink to the edges.  It looks like a treasured keepsake from a Christmas event long ago.  

Next up are a few postcards I made using the Compliments of the Season Clear Stamp Set, more amazing images cut from the Home For The Holidays 6x9" Paper Pad and die cuts from the Christmas Pines Miscellany Die cuts.

These post cards practically made themselves because the images in the paper pad are so perfect, I didn't want to add too much and risk covering the image.

Do you see the bells in the top left corner of this post card?  Do they look real or what??  They're die cuts so this post card is completely flat and can be mailed using a postcard stamp.  

For this slimline card, I simply cut a piece of the printed paper from the Home For The Holidays Paper Pad using a Fluted Classics Slimline Etched Die and cut the sentiment out of the same page, layered it and added the gold bar die cut to the bottom.  Super easy and fast! 

I really loved how all of these came out and enjoyed working with this release so much!  I hope you enjoyed this post too.
