We are so excited to be giving away so many of Crafter's Companion's fabulous products, as well as sharing many Christmas project ideas. If you are coming from Holley's blog, you are in the right place. If not, make sure you head over to Crafter’s Companion USA over here, where the blog hop starts. We are giving away a prize on every blog, including the entire set of our new Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to one lucky winner who posts a comment on every blog. These markers are so new, that you will be receiving our first prototype of them. That's 72 markers!
Spectrum Noir pens are alcohol ink based which have been designed specifically for crafters, but these affordable markers are also great for beginners, students and hobby artists alike. Each pen is double-ended, with a broad chisel nib for large area fills and a fine bullet tip for detailed work. Spectrum Noir marker pens will soon be available in 168 colour shades including a colourless blender. The colours blend seamlessly and can be mixed or layered over each other. These fast drying, alcohol based markers are acid-free and non-toxic, and the coloured ends of the pen allow for easy colour identification. (Please note: The design of the pen, color names and numbers may be different than the pens that will be released in January.) The image colour has been reproduced as accurately as possible.
I've been making a LOT of holiday ornaments and tags the past few weeks. Looking for ways to use recycled items as much as possible. Just like my post yesterday, today's post uses the metal top off a frozen juice container. For this ornament I used just the reindeer from this cute Humphrey stamp set Hello Rudolph for my project today:
I stamped my image onto cardstock and colored it in. I then cut it out to fit the metal piece.
I then trimmed small pieces of holiday ribbon into two inch pieces; folding each over to create these small points (kind of like a bow). I glued each ribbon piece around the metal piece and then added my stamped image. I trimmed the edge of my stamped piece with gold cording and then added the same cording as my hanger.... Isn't he cute...I made another to use as a tag for a gift as well.
I hope my project has inspired you to look for fun things you can alter into holiday ornaments and tags. I am giving away the stamp set that I used for my project, Hello Rudolph, to one lucky commenter. This giveaway is limited to USA residents only. So be sure to leave me a comment before midnight on December 11th and then check back on the Crafter's Companion blog on Tuesday, December 13 to see if you were the lucky winner.
