Christmas Trucks, New Dresden & Bringing Home the Tree Sale

Filed under Christmas, Dresden, Hello Christmas Kit, Kristin Batsel

TWO Christmas trucks! Before a longer tour of Design Team Member Kristin Batsel’s truck ornament, check out that cute truck at right!

It is made from multiple papers from the Christmas Charm Scrapbook Papers (that were also used by Laura Carson in one of her Christmas Trees with Cutaway Winter Scenes over Thanksgiving weekend).

I like how the sprigs of white poinsettias and grey/green mistletoe have a bit of white margin left around them (and are layered over other shapes from the paper pad).

And ALL these papers are included in today’s sale! More info below!

Otis Brings Home the Tree by Kristin Batsel!

Oh my! This is so cute! Kristin used the (flat) truck from the Hello Christmas Kit (plus a second truck and a tiny shadowbox to make her truck 3D).

Kristin also used some Red & White Diagonal Stripe Ribbon, and 11mm Peppermint Candy Cabs) — all of these supplies are included in today’s sale! But first: let’s hear more about Otis…

No one can say that Otis doesn’t have the Christmas spirit! He decorated his truck up big time for the season and has gone out and found the perfect Christmas tree. I cut the hook off of two Vintage Truck Ornaments from Alpha Stamps, and using a Truck Bed Bagatelle Box, made a Christmas truck. Here’s Otis, heading home.

I’m not one to decorate my car in real life, but I enjoyed decorating this car with Otis. He’s a fun loving snowman that enjoys peppermint candy and snow, and the hubcaps and the garlands on his car reflect that. Even the door handles look like candy canes! The Hello Christmas Polymer Clay Slice Mix contains lots of fun shapes, including peppermints, snowflakes, and snowmen, all of which I used to decorate the car.

The front of his car features a wooden bumper and a bright silver snowflake; flat backed crystals made the perfect headlights. The Santa hat is made with red felt and a cotton ball.

Learn more (and see how-to photos and tips!) in Kristin’s post and don’t forget to come back for her Supply List, new items and the related sale!)
