Hello friends!! Tuesday is here and that means time for a brand new Shining the Light challenge!! This week the challenge team is asking you to make a holiday card that has an ornament or something hanging on it. For my card this week I used the brand new Chickadee Ornament set.
This is the last week with our fabulous guest designer, Barbara. Please make sure you check out her blog and leave her some love.
I kept things really simple and just let the chickadee ornament shine. I stamped the ornament image using Memento Tuxedo black ink and then die cut it using a Spellbinders plain circle die. Once it was die cut I colored the image with Copic markers. Some red cardstock was die cut using another plain circle die to use as a mat for the ornament image. The little hanger was stamped using Delicata Golden Glitz ink, trimmed out and adhered to the ornament. The ornament was matted with the red circle and then the bakers twine was adhered to the back. Some additional baker's twine was tied in a bow. The white cardstock piece was embossed using my SU!/Sizzix woodgrain embossing folder and then inked with some Old Paper distress ink. At the time I took the photo the ornament is actually hanging free. I didn't put a sentiment on the front, but will add that to the inside at a later date.
As always, we will be giving out a prize, a $15.00 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Sunday, December 1st at 8:00 pm EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced on Tuesday. While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Design images and sentiments on your projects, we would definitely love to see them if you have them!! As a way of recognizing those who do use ODBD stamps we will be choosing three or more of our participants for the Shining the Light Award. In order to qualify for this award or join the challenge, you must use ODBD stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Sunday, December 1st at 8:00 pm EST. If you upload to Splitcoaststampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword: ODBDSLC132. When creating your post on your blog, please include a direct link to the challenge.
