Hello.....It's BSU time again! This week, because it's a fifth week this month, we are doing an ABC/3D project. So I decided to make an ornament! It's that time of year right??? LOL Actually I've been needing to do ornaments for my Craft Market and what a great way to merge my two favorite things. Wood Crafting and Rubber Stamping.
I harvested some old branches off the trees in the back yard earlier this year and once they dried out I had my trusty man slice them for me so I could make lovely little wood slice ornaments and well as many other crafts with them. I actually for once thought ahead a little. Yes I'm patting myself on the back LOL ANYWAY....back to the ornaments.
A few weeks ago I pulled out and old retired favorite Loads of Love....its a cute truck you can dress up for the season......Super Cute set.....sad to see that one go.....But I used it by stamping the trcuk in stazon ink and painting it in on the wood slice. They can out super super cute. Big Hit. But I can't show them here because my trusty fellow BSU girl Terri reminded me we nixed using retired sets.....oh bother. So I came up with this pretty one using a wood slice I painted with acrylic paint. Let dry real good, then stamped my image of a tree from the current Peaceful Pines stamp set with versamark ink and heat embossed it with the beautiful Copper Embossing powder. It has that look of rose gold that is so very popular right now. So because that worked so well I stamped the Tis The Season sentiment on it as well, drilled a hole and strug it with some Candy Cane Lane Baker's Twine. That's all there is to it. I did also stamp a to/from on the back so they can be used as either gift tags or ornaments or both LOL You can purchase wood slices at the craft store if you are interested in trying this yourself. It really was about a 20 min project. AND they came out so much cuter than I thought so I think I will need to make some more of these and experiment with the wonderous wreath stamp set as well.
