So, continuing with the daily challenges the Thursday challenge was to "cut it out" have something you had cut with scissors on the project so, I finished off those tags that have been under construction for that one. the List and the packages and the love santa words are all from the Hero Arts cut and stamp Christmas list set and some of the other words are from the Unity Stamps naughty or nice set.
On Wednesday the challenge was a sketch one that looked like this
The lace is vintage and that whole wood grain panel is up on pop dots over the base.
this baby Giraffe from the Jellycat store.
The top sentiment comes with those Giraffing me crazy giraffes from My Favorite things and the sentiment below that is from the Lots of Hugs set also from them.
and what I need more of is Christmas cards. so, This was done as a simple one where I poked a hole through the Yupo (heavy weight) alcohol ink background with a paper piercer and ran the cord through the hole and up the back side of the panel to tie the bows at the top.
you can find the instructions here)
I think this is hands down one of my favorite gift ideas from this month, the gist of it is to cover duck canvas with two coats of Gesso and then stamp on that (heat set it) color it, and die cut it to be glued to the seals inside rings for canning jars. ( there is cheap white foam under the canvas on mine below but, from the angle I shot them at to show off the stamping that probably does not show up very well.
this one because, I thought it was such an awesome design ( and not anything like what I would normally make if left to my own devices..) so, changes were to switch the washi tape strips to diecut scrap printed papers, I switched out the circle framing for a wreath that I made into a frame by cutting out inside and out loosely ( to keep the berries) with scissors. That noel is a Echo Park die, its cut twice the top layer is gold mirror and the bottom one is just smooth white neenah. that is up on foam pop dots over the background. (the colored background is one of the Yupo (ranger) alcohol ink ones from the rainbow on the table.
So, that is about it for the moment. Thanks for stopping by.
