Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I stamped off a bunch of Crafty Secret's "Little St Nick" images to use in Christmas projects, and colored them in.
I started out making Christmas tags with the colored images, and then used one in my traditional bingo card ornament, for my bingo card tree!
I stamped off a bunch of snowflakes on transparency sheets and embossed them..they've become the main theme running through all of my Christmas projects this year. I thought I'd give a short tutorial today and show you how to make transparency snowflakes! I've been going crazy adding these snowflakes to my projects this month...they are so EASY.

Rub your embossing buddy over the transparency sheet. This will reduce static and help the embossing powder to only stick onto the stamped image instead of the area surrounding it.
Stamp your snowflakes on the transparency (with the versamark ink) and then dump white detail embossing powder on the flakes.
Dump off the excess embossing powder and snap the back of the sheet a few times with your finger, to make sure the powder is just on the snowflakes, not the surrounding area. Then take your heat gun and run it over the flakes until the powder melts & becomes shiny.
Then punch your flakes out with a spellbinders scallop or circle die, and glue buttons to the centers. Easy~! Hope you all can take some time this season to sit down and indulge your creative side! I'll have another tutorial this weekend for you and more Crafty Secrets inspiration soon!
