Ho Ho Ho, Bah Humbug and all that Xmas Stuff!!!


Hi Sin City Fans!
Today I am sharing my embellished store bought Xmas decoration using a stamp by Sin City which has been "adapted" to be a Xmas stamp LOL!!!
This is a quick and easy but effective little creation!
For those of you who don't know me well I am rather "Bah Humbug" about Xmas so I don't have a lot of Xmas stamps BUT I am also a big believer in using stamps for a purpose other than what they were meant for - I like versatility and good value for money to get the most from your purchases!!
This creation uses inexpensive store bought decorations with minimal supplies but you end up with a fab and unique handmade Xmas ornament!!



Supplies:
  • Sin City Stamp: Small Round Line Art Face
  • Stamp also found in this set: Sunshine Cherub Sun Flowers
  • Collage Xmas Hat: used here by Art Tea Life "Figgy Pudding"
  • Store bought Xmas Decorations
  • White Card
  • Black Archival Ink Pad
  • Coloring markers or pencils
  • Xmas accents ie. holly, berries, cones etc.
  • Scrap muslin cloth
  • General supplies: scissors, glue

Instructions:
Gather your goodies which are minimal and therefore cheap to make - perfect at xmas time when you have other expenses!


Stamp the Sin City "Face" onto white card using your Black Archival ink. Hint: if you want a more sparkly look why not use gold or any sparkly embossing powder to stamp the image! Color with your favorite coloring medium - Copic markers used for this creation.


Print your collage hat and fussy cut and adhere top the fussy cut face.


Grab your purchased ornament (and the hanging twine which came with the pack used here), your scrap of muslin cloth, face with hat and your Xmas accent/embellishment along with your glue.


Start by adhering the muslin cloth to the ornament, scrunch it up for effect and dimension. Add the face and embellishment. Tie the thread to the top ready to hang.



And then you have a finished and very unique ornament for your tree!!


I hope you have enjoyed this quick and easy creation!!
Have a great festive season!
Happy Stamping!
