Sherri Baldy's My Besties 3D Christmas Treats!

For the next two weeks at My Besties 3-D Deco Challenge blog we have another great challenge for you!

The theme is,Christmas Treats!

To participate in our My Besties 3D challenges go here:

For this project i am using a My Besties 3D sheet called Waiting For Santa/Christmas Peppermint found at Sherri Baldy's My Besties Etsy store here or Scrapbook Stamp Society here


Side view showing the 3D layers:
This sheet is so versatile.  You can use it in at least 4 ways.  One, you can use the basic colored image (1st layer), two you can make the 3D full size, three you can make her just sitting as i shared in an earlier blog post or this way with just the head and arms.  This would make an adorable ornament!

Here is how you would layer this version:


These sheets are fun and easy to use!  They are all pre-colored for you, all you do is print out your sheets, cut out the pieces you wish to use and layer them with foam tape, foam dots/squares or Silicone glue. 

Dies i used:
the snowflake behind the image is from Spellbinders.

Sherri Baldy's My Besties 3D Ballerina Christmas Decoration

For the next two weeks at My Besties 3-D Deco Challenge blog we have another great challenge for you!

The theme is, Christmas Decorations

To participate in our My Besties 3D challenges go here:

For this project i am using a My Besties 3D sheet called Garden Nellie found at Sherri Baldy's Scrapbook Stamp Society here

Side view showing the 3D layers:
This ornament is double sided.  I printed the image off two ways. One way was how i received it and then the other way i flipped it horizontally.  I did the 3D and sandwiched the two together.  I added an acrylic strip between the two completed images, it accomplishes two things..support for her tiny neck when cut out and i also extend the acrylic to go beyond her head so that i can tie the ribbon on for a hanger.  I covered up the acrylic with a bow on both sides (front and reversed side (back)).  To make the skirt i cut two lengths of tulle to make two skirts, placing the two sections together i then hand sewed a gathering stitch.  I placed the skirt between the two layers like the acrylic.  Made a bow for both sides at the waist and attached them.  I then embellished the 3D image with Stickles..and that's it..a sweet little ornament.

These sheets are fun and easy to use!  They are all pre-colored for you, all you do is print out your sheets, cut out the pieces you wish to use and layer them with foam tape, foam dots/squares or Silicone glue.

Sherri Baldy's My Besties International Christmas Event Day 3 and Freebie link.

Every day for the month of December My Besties International will be hosting a My Besties Design Team Member from around the world!  Isn't that exciting!

Today i would like to share a special project I made for the blog using the the My Besties freebie available here.

Here is my card/project with some info on how i created this card:







This image is called Brooksie Book Nerd.  I decided to have her read a Christmas book.  So i used a vintage book cover and reduced it and rotated it to fit on the cover of this book on this image. I made a small slit and tucked the cover of the book inside. She is reading "Twas the night before Christmas" and that is why i added the sleigh and clock from Marianne Designs. I hope you have enjoyed this card and will give this a try and enter our current challenge that ends on Friday...or color up this freebie for the next challenge that starts on Monday!


Here is the image i used to make this book cover. 


Please join us daily at My Besties International for some beautiful Christmas Inspiration!
