I'm not going to post all of the supplies I listed right now, I'll update the post later with that info. For now, just pics and a little info.
So there are 3 ATC's that I did, though I'm only really pleased with 2 of them. LOL Hey, we are always our own worst critic!
This first one is the one I like the most! I just LOVE hedgehogs!! they are so freakin' cute! For this swap, all of our handmade items had to be embellished in at least 2 ways. For the christmas tree I stamped it and then used SEVERAL colors of stickles on it in the white spaces, as well as a little bit of stickles on the * in the sentiment, and on the star above the hedgehogs. Click the pics for larger images showing the glitter on the cards. I also added a cute little silver star made from very shiny silver confetti. Though, you can't see the shine!
So anyhow, I used 2 snowflake stamps, one from the new Stampin' Up! Snow Swirled set and one from a recollections holiday set. I added a white pearl in the middle of the large blue one, and then a light blue pearl in the middle of the 2 small light blue ones.
Overall, I'm very pleased with how this card came out!
For the last items I did, I had to create 2 "to/from" gift tags for my partner. I loved the idea of making them postcard like. I'm SO pleased with how this came out. I'm actually thinking of making some christmas "postcards" instead of cards this year!
I inked the edges of the top note die-cut for some contrast to the rest of the card. I used the postcard stamp from Stampin' Up! and then stamped the mittens on the end hanging off. I colored them and then embellished the tops of the mittens with silver stickles.
after stamping the snowman I colored it and added some star dust stickles to the bob on the hat. I used turquoise stickles for the snowflake dots. baby blue stickles were used for the snow.
Oh, the ribbon is attached through a snowflake eyelet. that eyelet was white, but I used my sailboat blue TH Alcohol Ink to color it. I just put some ink on a plastic lid and dipped and dabbed the eyelet in it until I was happy with the look. :)
Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my crafty projects.
I got them at a yard sale a few years ago and they were just in a baggy on the acetate. the lady didn't know what company they were from.
Keep on Craftin'!
