Get in Shape

The 38th challenge at the Shabby Tea Room is to "Get in Shape": to make a shaped project that uses no squares or rectangles.  Every year I make some ornaments for our Christmas tree, so I decided to use the Spellbinder's Fleur de Lis pendant to make snowflake ornaments.  Here are 2 examples:




Briefly, I diecut a circle out of blue cardstock, overstamped it in white ink with the snowflake circle, then stamped the trees in green ink.  The snow is a torn piece of a white diecut circle, glued to the blue circle.  The log cabin was stamped on kraft cardstock, and colored in with colored pencils, adding white gel pen for the snow and popped up for a little dimension.  I added glitter with a glue pen, then dipped into prisma glitter.  I used 2 pendant diecuts, 1 turned 45 degrees from the first behind the finished scene, and then put another finished scene on the reverse side, so that if it turns you still see the main image.

Supplies: blue, white, kraft cardstocks, colored pencils, glue pen and glitter, Glossy Accents on some windows, Hero Arts CG100 Snowflake Circle, CL462 Magic of Christmas (added snowflakes), CL464 Sending Holiday Cheer (cabin and trees), Colorbox Frost White, pine needles distress, and Versafine onyx black inks, Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Pendant diecut, circle diecut

  12. Lin! These are so pretty -- love all the GLITTER! :) And they gave me a great idea -- J's mom and dad are coming for a week long visit from Ohio and they're going to be staying with us -- the house stamps will make a perfect card to go on a "welcome to Texas" basket I'm making for them!

    Hugs!
