In about a week it's Christmas, and that means that everyone is busy with lots of preparations and last minute Christmas shopping. Hopefully you'll have some time to make some gifts, because this week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show is gift-spiration! Personally I find it so much fun to make decorations as a present. The new Snowflake Rosette by Tim Holtz makes stunning ornaments to hang in the christmas tree or hang anywhere else in the house. You can also use them to embellish your presents.
First of all I've cut some Neenah Solar White cardstock to size. I've inked it up with the different colors of green Distress Inks and did that on both sides. As an ornament, both sides need to be pretty.
Then I cut the rosettes out of the cardstock. The tear lines is very fragile, so I stuck a piece of tissue tape on one side.
For a bit more interest, I used some stamps. On the large rosette I decorated the edges with gold embossing powder.
Time to struggle to get the rosettes in their shape and gluing them. That's really the hardest part. I need some more practise with that.
To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!
