12 Days of Christmas - Day 1

How much fun we are going to have celebrating the 12 Days of Christmas and showing you all 12 fabulous projects from our Design Team, Mary and Myself!

I am going to get this started by sharing a fun little project that I did over the weekend.
I LOVE paper ornaments. They are just so much fun to make.

This year, we have little chipboard ornament kits available through our website. I have decorated one up.

I started by pulling out my tefflon craft sheet. I then placed a bit of Worn Lipstick and Dusty Concord distress ink onto my surface. I misted the colors lighly so that would blend a bit together.

Next, I dipped my ornament into the ink and smeared. Once completed, I pulled out my mini mister spray bottle and sprayed with brick red distress ink onto the surface.

I let the ornament dry completely.
Once dry, I stamped the poinsettia stamp off to the side of the ornament with black Memento Ink.

I then pulled out my copic markers and colored in the image as shown.

Next, I pierced the edge of the ornament and stitched the edges with gold thread. I then adhered beaded trim to the back of the ornament.

Would you like the opportunity to make 5 of these ornaments yourself??
