Well you may have been wondering where I have been and why I did not finish the ‘Catch the Bug Christmas Chaos’ challenges. Actually I did get all seven done before the deadline but our internet went down for two days so I could not post them in time. On the bright side I still have four projects to share which will tide me over the Christmas period.
The fourth challenge was a recipe.
Bugaboo Stamps – Ornament
Deedee’s Digis – Christmas Cuties (Deedee is closing the shop at the end of the year and is having a 75% off sale)
acrylic greetings stamp from stash
black archival ink pad
white A5 card blank
snippet of red ribbon
Print out the ornament to the desired size onto blending card. Also print out three sheets of backing paper from the Christmas Cuties set.
Colour in the ornament with the Copics and gold pen and fussy cut it out then stamp the sentiment across the middle.
Cut the backing paper into 3 different size mats and layer up on the card front.
Use a shaping tool to emboss the back of the ornament to ‘puff’ it out then stick to the card with foam pads. Tie the ribbon into a bow and attach to the top of the ornament. Finally add two gems.
It was certainly a challenge trying to work out how to incorporate all the elements needed to meet the criteria of the challenge.
Thank you for dropping in. Take care.
