Have you seen something that you just knew you had to make something out of it. Well I saw the base of this tree at Hobby Lobby and knew I could make something out of it. But what? I didn't buy it--but it worked on me--all day every day until I went back and bought it.
I purchased 2 8 ft garlands at the dollar store. Took them home and stripped all the leaves off. Then I painted them silver on one side. Next I stamped a fern leaf in black on each leaf. After they dried I added purple paint on the ferns. I found the purple looking beading on sale at Joann's. I stripped the plants down and cut the foam beads up in small pieces.
Starting at the bottom using E6000 glue I added two rows of the silver leaves and two rows of the purple bead sections. Working my way to the top. Then I added silver ribbon and lavendar birds.
Hoping you enjoy my Christmas creation. The complete instructions are posted on the Rubber Road
This beautiful stamp comes from Stamps Happen,Inc. Let Not our Hearts Be Busy # 80297. The image was stamped on Ivory Swirls and Twirls by Paper Piazza. I stamped it with black StazOn ink and covered with clear embossing powder from Ranger and heat set.
Next I colored in the image with my Le Plume markers and allowed it to dry. Then I went back over what I had colored for the background with Metallic EZ Gel pens by Geddes. These gel pens remain wet for quite sometime, so I covered the ink with another layer of clear embossing powder and heat set.
I used my Christmas present (A Cuttlebug) to emboss the cranberry cardstock. Then added the stamped paper with Zig glue. To highlight the berries I added red diamond like little dots that are from Darice. Next add a beautiful red bow and you are finished.
My new stamp set from Fire Cracker Designs. Don't you just love this elf. I stamped him with my black StazOn and then colored him in with pink, purple and green. Then I made a mask to cover the elf up so that I could sponge the front of the card with a seafoam green. Then stamped the jack-in-the-box colored it and cut it out. Used pop dots to add it to the card. Stamp the saying and added it to some purple striped cardstock and glued to the card. Tied on a seafoam ribbon. I, then used my Glaze pen to highlight the spots on his pants, the gold ball on his hat and the brim.
My new stamp from Stamps Happen Inc. What a hoot!! This stamp is just awesome! My best friend and I (32 years)went to Chicago for the weekend shopping and eating. And yes we kept saying Is It Hot in Here.

Hi there and welcome to the second Clear Artistic Stamps Blog Hop! I hope you are enjoying your little tour of ornaments that the design team has prepared for you!
I created this ornaments using the stamp set A Crimson Christmas. I cut strips of tissue paper and added them to a glass ornament with decoupage. Pasting each one until the entire ornament was covered. Set aside to dry.
Stamp the poinsettia on pink copy paper and color with Gelly Roll metallic pens. Then glue to ornament and add pink beads in the center of each poinsettia. Tie a large bow of pink ribbon and glue to the bottom of the ornament.
