Snowboy Christmas Tree Ornament

Hi All! For today's project I have used the Weekend Freebie digital stamp from www.valsdigitaldesigns.com     Snow Boy. Instead of a card I decided to make this cute Christmas Tree Ornament. I had some round wooden circles left over from another project, they were already base coated with a light green acrylic paint so I decided why not make some ornaments. One reason why I love digital stamps is you can resize them to fit any project you are making. I printed him at 21/4 inches and it fit perfectly. I colored the image with my prisma pencils and then blushed his cheeks with chalk and then highlighted each check with a little dot of acrylic white paint. I also sprayed him lightly with a matte Krylon  spray. For the ornament I sponged over the light green with a white acrylic paint, then I mod podged the Snow Boy on  and then brushed mod podge over the whole front and back. After that dried I used a palate knife and applied some crafters snow around the edges and sprinkled glitter on while the snow was still wet. I also put some clear glue on three of the stripes on hat and sprinkled clear glitter on them. I really like the way the ornament turned out so much that I made a dozen of them to sell at an upcoming craft show! Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend Val 
I also posted my ornament here http://ttcrd.blogspot.ca/2015/10/ttcrd-challenge-week-october-20th-26th.html

Gingerbread boy with santa hat

Hi All! Sorry for the long absence, our internet went down about 2 months ago and they finally came and fixed it. Fantastic service we have here! Anyway for today's post I would like to share the Weekend Freebie digital stamp Gingerbread Boy with Santa Hat from www.valsdigitaldesigns.comI colored the stamp with my prisma pencils and then put glitter on the icing and fur on the hat. Instead of a card I made a lip balm holder so there is a tube of lip balm inside, then I punched a couple of holes on the edge put ribbon through and tied it shut. Thanks for stopping by! Val
