There is so much inspiration for all types of crafter, whether you are a cardmaker, scrapbooker, sewer, mixed media artist – there is something for everyone. All projects created with Jennifer’s unique clean and crisp style……I love it, and I hope with will too.

I had just finished making this when Jennifer first sent the invitation to join in with this event, so I accepted the offer and immediately decided that this would be the project I shared with you – it was such a coincidence, that made me smile, when I saw Jennifer posting her take on Wood Slice Ornaments & Gifts a couple of weeks later as part of her blog event.

As I had this project ready before hand, I have no step by step photos to share, but I can talk you through the process to make it. You can adapt the method to whatever surface you have available to decorate (whether it be wood, canvas, paper etc).

TO MAKE

  1. Cover your surface with a layer of acrylic paint, and allow to dry. I have used IndigoBlu’s English Cottage Acrylic Paint called Grandma’s Teacup .
  2. Stamp the IndigoBlu Triple parcels (a two stamp system) onto white cardstock. I stamped the sketchy outline with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, and the Solid outline with IndigoBlu flitterglu before gilding with Winter Dawn megaflakes.
  3. Colour the parcels with your favourite alcohol markers. I have used promarkers Pink Mittens and Pale Blue. Fussy out each of the individual parcels and set to one side.
  4.   Ensuring the paint is completely dry, stamp all over the wooden plaque with IndigoBlu’s Snowflake Border rubber stamp and Flitterglu, again gild using Winter Dawn megaflakes.
  5. Stamp IndigoBlu’s Flying Santa rubber stamp directly onto the face of the plaque, using black archival ink. Stamp off centre and towards the right. If needed when the ink had dried, take a black fine liner (micron) pen and define some of the stamped lines.
  6. Arrange and adhere ribbon (or seam binding as I’ve used) along the bottom edge of the plaque, and tie a coordinating bow to attach towards the left.
  7. Take the previously stamped parcels, and using silicone glue gel (to create dimension) arrange and adhere alongside the bow.
  8. Complete the project by stamping a seasonal sentiment onto coordinating card stock.
