Day 11 of the My Pink Stamper 12 Days of Christmas challenges.
Today we were supposed to make a decoration for our home or a hostess gift. As I'm not hosting Christmas this year, I opted for the decoration. I had a couple of round wood blocks in my stash of "items I will make SOMETHING with SOMEDAY" box. I attached a ribbon to the back of both of them with my stapler, this holds the two together. Then I covered them with sticky white craft foam. I used sticky craft foam for the hat and scarf. I used glitter craft foam for the snow. I stamped my sentiment on a piece of cardstock and decorated with my new bottles of STICKLES. I was excited to get my stickles in the mail today and see what all the hype is about them. It seems that a LOT of people use stickles and the craft store by my house doesn't even sell the stuff. Anyway, I have three bottles of the glitter glue now, so I should be good for awhile. Back to the snowman, I stapled another piece of ribbon the back so I can use that to hang the man to the wall. I used a black foamies marker for the mouth and sticky foam again for the eyes and carrot nose. I embossed the nose with lines by using pressing down on the foam...it embosses really easily in case you've never used it before. The end result is a super cute little snowman dude. I was contemplating going out and getting a couple of sticks to glue on for his arms, but we'll see if that happens or not. :o) If you don't visit my blog again tomorrow have a MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!
