I recently acquired some new, retired Stampin' Up sets. I thought this lovely lady would make a graceful charm and I believe she did. She is from the Days Gone By stamp set. I stamped her with Jet Black Stazon Ink on the front. On the back side I colored her in with my water color pencils. I used a corner rounder to soften the edges, punched a hole for the jump ring and let the shrinking process commence!! :::Smiles::: I'm still a kid at heart.....no matter how many times I use Shrink Plastic....it still amuses me greatly!! When the charms were cool I edged them with a black sharpie, added a jump ring, a beaded eye pin and another jump ring. I attached them to a Moo card made using DCWV Le Creme paper.
The other project I finished up today is for a mingle. We were given a stocking pattern and the challenge was to make it from a brown grocery bag. I actually chose brown mailing paper as I had several rolls in the studio. I cut out the brown stockings and used Spray Mount to attach them to the printed scrapbook papers. I cut them out again and used my Mat Pack from Stampin' Up and a needle tool to punch holes around the stockings. I stitched them up with embroidery floss, added some embellishments to the cuffs and added a little sparkle with my gel pens. The stockings are to be given empty for the recipients to use as gifties themselves.
