I have another Christmas ornament to share with you today. I had so much fun making this cute little fairy ornament! As soon as I spotted this fairy ornament at the store I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it and who I wanted to give it to! I have a dear sweet friend and her little girl LOVES Tinker Bell!! The stamp set is one of the NEW JustRite Cling stamp sets, CL-02055 In the Moonlight. I used Memento Rich Cocoa ink to stamp the swirly frame and sentiment on to Simply Smooth White cardstock. Then I taped the S4-290 Labels Fourteen die #3 die template in place and cut/embossed using the Grand Calibur™ from Spellbinders™.Next I used Copic markers and airbrushed inside the die template.I also made a star diecut for the wand using S4-092 Stars Five die #1 and airbrushed with a Copic marker.Here is a close up of the sentiment. The little accent pieces are from the corner die templates in the S4-287 Fanciful Holiday set. I used pink cardstock to cut/emboss the accent pieces. I added Cotton Candy and Star Dust stickles from Ranger and Bling from My Mind's Eye Fine & Dandy Tickled Pink Bling. I added some bling to the little skirt, shoes and wand.
Here is a photo of the fairy before I embellished it. I added Waterfall, Shell Pink, Lacy Lilac Glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle to the wings. I added the star with a bit of bling to the wand and some pink seam binding for a ribbon.

Good morning! Wow, I can't believe how fast 12 weeks flew by! For today's project I have a Christmas card to share with you.To create the card I used JustRite Cling CL-02025 Sparky and Friends stamp set from JustRite Stampers. This is a fun Christmas stamp set and includes 12 stamps in the set. I used non traditional colors for the card but I really like the pinks and blues for the Christmas holiday. The designer paper is from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Collection and the Fine and Dandy Collection. I started with a piece of paper from the Fine and Dandy Collection and randomly stamped three of the snowflake images from JustRite Cling CL-02025 Sparky and Friends stamp set using Broken China ink. In the photo you can see a before and after look of the paper. Here is a close up of the background paper.
Next I stamped the mitten image using Rich Cocoa ink. Then I lined up the die template and taped it in place and cut/embossed the shape. The mitten die template is from S4-285 Nested Mittens. Then I colored the cuff of the mitten and the heart with Copic markers and inked around the edges with Vintage Photo ink.Here is a close up of the mittens.
I cut/embossed the snowflakes using S4-286 2010 Snowflake Pendants and inked the edges with Vintage Photo ink.I used White 3D Foam Squares to layer all of the pieces for the snowflake and mittens. The shape card was created using the Grand Calibur™ and LF-126 Grand Squares die #3, LF-127 Grand Scalloped Squares die #3 from Spellbinders™.I added diamond stickles to the white snowflake, scalloped edge, mittens and snowflake on the background paper.

For the challenge this month I created a Christmas Wall Hanging.To create the wall hanging I used the Crafty Secrets Seasons Greetings Clear Art Stamp Set and the Crafty Secrets Merry Christmas Creative Scraps. I also used the Grand Calibur™ and LF-190 Grand Labels Four from Spellbinders™ to create the base for the wall hanging. To start I stamped the image of the adorable little girl using Rich Cocoa ink. I used Simply Smooth White Cardstock. Next I added color using Copic markers. I used three shades of green for the holly.Then I colored the berries.For the coat and hat I used a light pink, a medium rose colors and a deep rose color.Next I colored the face and arm and I used a little bit of blush color to give her cheeks a little pink color.I colored the hair a golden brown.I used two shades to color her boots.Lastly a touch of blue for the eyes and pink for the lips. I used the S4-294 Beaded Ovals die #4 and S4-303 Crowned Ovals die #4 to make the oval die cuts. Using Antique Linen ink I left the cardstock in the die templates and inked through using the die template as a stencil. I layered the two pieces together using 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L™.The printed image is from the Christmas Creative Scraps and I used the Grand Calibur™ and LF-190 Grand Labels Four die #4 to cut/emboss the image. Then I added some color to the image using Copic markers.I made a bow to use on the bottom and then I lightly misted it with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels. I also used the LF-190 Grand Labels Four dies # 5, 6 to create a mat and then I layered all of the pieces. Here is a close up of the Santa. I colored the Santa hat, added so Liquid Applique` and then some glitter. I also used the postcard image from the Merry Christmas Creative Scraps and distressed the edges. The image of the little girl was colored with Copic markers and then I added Liquid Applique` and glitter. I also added tiny pearls. I added some color to the boy and girl and then added Liquid Applique` and glitter to the area with snow. I added snowflake buttons (with the backs removed) and pink rhinestones on the top. To dress up the bottom half I used some Christmas greens, glittered fern and white berries with a bow.
