Christmas with Darkroom Door!!!

Hi  guys!!!
I have a shadow box to show you using Darkroom Door's, new, Christmas stamps.

1. Emboss the ornaments, from the Brushed Christmas Vol. 1 & 2 set. I used two different gold tones of embossing powder.
2. Emboss the Christmas Tree and medium Star from Brushed Christmas Vol. 1 stamp set. I used white for the tree and gold for the star.
3. Fussy cut them out of the paper. I used a Christmas set of paper by Authentique. I stamped the images on this paper using Versa Mark stamp pad. Then set with a heat tool.
4. Each section of the shadow box is lined with pattern paper from the paper set. 

5. Arrange the cut out shapes in the box sections. 
6. The Christmas Script Background Stamp is stamped over the ornaments. All four of them, in Black Archival ink.
7. String the ornaments together with twine of jute
8. Arrange in the shadow box and adhere to the box. I used hot glue and pop dots to secure the embossed ornaments.
9. Stamp the Robin Eclectic Stamp and fussy cut it out. I stamped it with Potting Soil Archival Ink.

10. I added extra embellishments, pine cones, glass bulbs, bird nest (from our yard), old child's spoon (on top for handle). Whatever you have to make it your own.
11. The last thing I did was, sprayed the shadow box with white irRESISTible Texture Spray by Imagine Crafts. Looks like snow!!
