As you all know November is the time to gear up for Christmas shopping. So many sales and crowds, well stick with us we have some great deals for your Holiday Shopping needs.
The special stamp set we have for you this month is:
Tis the season for the need of last minute Christmas gifts, stocking stuffers, hostess gifts for all of those holiday parties, and the birthday gift forgotten in all of the holiday rush. Today I am going to help with some ideas using today's featured set that do not take a whole lot of time to make and are inexpensive, yet personal, as well.
My first project uses a picture keychain I picked up at Michael's (dollar store works too), removed the paper insert and traced an outline of the keychains size. Then takin the smaller flower pot from Amaryllis Definition I stamped it in memento black onto snow storm card stock before coloring with prismacolor markers. Once my coloring was finished, I cut out the colored piece, stamped my saying onto it, and then stippled Tim Holtz spiced marmalade and fired brick distress inks around the edges before reinserting into the keychain. Presto!! My keychain was finished in 10 minutes.
My second project uses a small gold antique frame picked up at Michael's in their clearance section. I stamped the larger flower pot in memento black onto snow storm and then colored with prismacolor markers before stippling Tim Holtz tea distress ink over the image. Then taking the background from Cracked Hello, I inked it using Tim Holtz brushed corduroy distress ink before lightly stippling off some of the ink and then stamping over my colored image for an aged look. After stamping my saying, my frame was ready to be assembled. This whole project took only 20minutes start to finish and could be easily duplicated to use as extra gifts.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs to leave some love for a chance to win today's featured set.
