Believe in the Season

Aloha everyone,


  Thank you so much for joining me today.
If you are all like me, you are seriously procrastinating on your Christmas crafts and gifts.

This season I am trying to stay ahead by getting a jump start on some of my holiday crafts. 

Anyway, on to my project for the day.

I want to share with you this super cute CK-Cupcake snowman.
 To add a different spin  to my project, I decided to make a holiday ornament tag, charm, etc.

I found this plastic ornament at my local craft store and it measures approximately 3.954 in diameter.

   The snowman is cut at 3.354 in height and 2.050 in width. To give the snowman that cotton texture on his hat and gloves I used a product called Snow-Tex. Because this product is wet, I used a paper clip and a toothpick to help lay it down exactly where I wanted it to be placed.


 The pine tree in the background is from Stampin Up's Festival of Trees. This tree was then embossed with my Versamarker pen and with Stampendous Shabby Blue Embossing Enamel.

    The photo really does this enamel no justice.

The Santa silhouette also comes from Stampin Up's Holiday Home.

   To finish up the details in this globe I added the smallest circle found in JB's circle dies.

I also used some faux snow to give my ornament that shaker appearance.

I used Mod Podge to glue my ornament onto my paper. Trying to stay away from the E600, due to it having cancer causing agents inside of it. To cover up any glue mistakes and to help place the tag, I wrapped twine around the globe and topped it off with Jaded Blossom's holly die and stamp.

Mahalo for stopping by and I hope you all have a scrappy day :)

    1. Hi MaryEllen Lett. This ornament does indeed separate in half. My intention was to make a whole ornament but I messed up the other half. I think it worked out well though.
