'Ol Scrooge McDuck here and I have some Christmas goodies to share with y'all.
Just a quick ornament for the tree using Scenic Route paper and chipboard star. I love these stars because not only are they cheap ($1.50) but they are sturdy.
The little birdie and greeting are stamps from Hero Arts. These babies are clear and wonderful. I am not the biggest clear stamp fan but I can honestly say that these stamped beautifully and are so reasonably priced, I know there will be more of these babies in my future. I inked the edges and added a little bling.
The greeting is stamped on "fake acetate".
If you had real acetate or transperencies you could use those too and just stamp using Staz On ink.
The little bird was colored with the Copics and it was actually easier than I thought, sometimes those markers are not the friendliest to small images.
This little ornament will sit on my tree, which is now up and decorated single-handedly by yours truly, apparently almost 12 year olds are too cool for Xmas trees too.
And one day will sit with all my other scrappin ornaments (these too!) on my very own little scrapbooking Xmas tree so that I can look back at all the old papers and products.
And probably laugh.
Like prepared and organized people, I'm sure many of you are working hard on your Xmas cards or some of you over achievers are already done! (Paula...I'm looking in your direction!)
And then there is me who is wondering if I will ever get cards done at all this year and freaking out about the fact that I don't have all my addresses in one place.
But I have made a couple cards, like this one, so at least two or three people will get a little love this year.
This little baby has a cute little sequined star at the top.
Where did that come from?
I found it in my stash but I assume that you can get them at Michael's or Joann's...right?
And the tree was stamped on that Scenic Route paper and then pieced together.
And I just love this bird because it is so easy to cut out and piece together like I did here.
I used a tiny (1/4"?) punch to make the little ornament and added the string myself with a marker.
And for this little tree card, I used THIS Scenic Route paper and just cut out each tree, stamped the trunk from one of the Hero Arts stamps and then added some glitter with a Stardust Clear Gellyroll Pen but it is hard to see.
I would like to get my hands on one of these Just Glitter pens because these other pens are good but just not glitter enough without the mess of loose powder.
