InStyle Stamps Blog Hop ~ Ornaments


Welcome to our monthly InStyle Stamps Blog Hop.  Glad you could stop in on this most famous shopping day! 

Our theme this month is Ornaments.    The above ornament was made using Sandy, my favorite holiday image from InStyle Stamps.   She was printed on acetate and colored with Copics and moonlight Smooch paint.   Don’t forget, click on this link to receive a 5 percent discount on your entire InStyle stamps order ~   INSTYLE STAMPS. 




My second project features Christmas Tree Chick.   My twin granddaughters LOVE candy canes and they include them with the ornaments on their tree each year.   So I thought it would be fun to give them a pre-holiday gift of some candy canes – for eating AND decorating!     

I used one of the holiday boxes from the dollar section at Target and added my image.



And for my final ornament project …


My granddaughters, who LOVE pink and purple, have a small Christmas tree that they decorate in their room.  I found some pretty pink and purple smaller sized ornaments that were perfect for their tree and added them to another box from Target, also with Christmas Tree Chick.
