I am NOTORIOUS for leaving my holiday cards for the last minute, so I’ve been trying to gather up lots of supplies, keeping them on hand, and coloring up a bunch of images so I can put my cards together in an assembly-line fashion when the mood strikes. Today’s card is a perfect example of that!
Prior to ANY mention of Christmas crafting, I pulled out a bunch of scraps and old, unloved supplies and shoved them into a ZipLoc bag for quick access, and intended SOLELY for my holiday cards (even though lots of the stuff was just random and not remotely holiday-related). As I sat down to put my card together, I whipped out the bag of stuff and found a couple of things that I thought would work with an image I actually colored at CHA in Chicago! 🙂 Yep, I’ve held onto this little pretty since the hotel room coloring extravaganza with my girlies Kristy and Annette, and now she’s FINALLY made her way onto a project.
Ornament Tia is colored up with Copics (for a change!), and I actually don’t hate my pleats (which is a rare occurrence)! 🙂 I used the filament for the lightbulb and tried to give just a hint of a glow on her face:
Stamped the sentiment on a journaling sprout from Jillibean Soup (because I luff them immensely) and outlined it with a white gel pen, adding some bling:
Added a couple of little border strips and paper from companies I can’t recall, punched a couple of little leaves on the edge with an EK Success punch, tied some American Crafts swiss dot ribbon, added more bling, and my little project was born:
Super simple to put together, and I was thrilled to have used up some VERY OLD SUPPLIES! Do you prefer Ornament Tia‘s lightbulb on its own, with the filament, or with one of the patterns to turn it into an ornament?
How far along are you with your holiday crafting? (I have a long way to go!) We’ll be back tomorrow with another Project Feature, and we hope you’ll be inspired! 😀
Don’t forget – TOMORROW NIGHT ends our October Sketch Challenge – there’s a 4″ x 6″ clear stamp set and 3 digis up for grabs, so hurry! The clock’s tickin’!
😀 Later, taters!
