Challenge #281 begins today at the


This is our last challenge for 2018 
returning from a Holiday Break on Monday
 January 7, 2018 


I made four ornaments using the Stampendous miniature clear stamps
that you can only get at a Stamp Store.  And the Angel is from a
Christmas Clear set from Stampendous

Christmas Tree with Angel - Ceramic tree purchased at Hobby Lobby.
I inked the tree with Green Oxide ink let it dry for awhile, then brush
clear tacky glue on the entire tree.  I then sprinkled some sparkly glitter over
the entire tree and let it dry.  I colored up the Angel after emobssing it in
gold embossing powder and fussy cut it out.  I used pop dots to adhere
to the mouse, but I used a hot glue gun to adhere the pop dots to the tree
as the glitter on the tree would not allow them to stick.

Mouse in Santa hat - I filled the acrylic bauble with fake snow, and colored
up the cute little Santa Hat Mouse with Copics,then die cut the image with
a circle die from Gina Marie. Adhered the circle to designer paper cut from
the next largest die from the same set.  Adhered to the bauble. Bow and tag
with sentiment that came with the stamp added.

Candy cane mouse on snowflake- This was a glazed ceramic snowflake
that I have had in my stash, purchased from one of the big box craft stores.
I inked half the snowflake and added clear embossing powder.  I heat the
embossing powder, but you must be careful, as the ceramic gets hot, so
you can only do half at a time so you can hold onto the ornament. I colored
the image with Copics, added pop dots and used the heat gun to attach to
the glittered snowflake.

Mouse with Antlers on mitten - This is a wooden ornament.  I covered it
with designer paper, cut a piece of brown corregated paper for the cuff
portion of the mitten, inked the recessed parts with a darker brown marker.
Colored the image with Copics, fussy cute it out and adhered it and the sentiment
to the mitten.
