Reindeer Merry Christmas Ornament

Reindeer Merry Christmas Ornament
With this Christmas ornament, I have hit my 2015 Christmas cards/projects target which is five (5) in total! Well, I know the quantity is small but at least I made my target. I will try harder next year!

I am making this Christmas ornament to be put in one of my office team Christmas tree which is on top of a her desk. I do not think it is not really the team Christmas tree as as far as I know no one sponsor for it. It is rather a personal interest to make up the festive feel in the office as we spend so many hours in office nowadays. I would like to make a small contribution to the Christmas tree as well to send my wishes to others. Thus, I made this Christmas ornament.

I guess it would be fun to make a shaker Christmas ornament as handmade things are very rare found and see in Malaysia. Thus, I guess a shaker Christmas ornament would make it more appreciated and noticeable.


Close-up: Adding shimmer before the shaker Christmas ornament is assembly
I use a digital stamp that come with both the image and sentiment which is printed and die cut into circle. Both of them are colored using Copic markers. I also outline the images with blue marker to make it pop on the white background. After coloring, I add shimmer to the reindeer's nose and the banner which really show those festive feeling!

Then, the supplies for shaker Christmas ornament are die cut and assemble accordingly. I double up the foam so that there are more rooms for the beads to move around.

Merry Kissmoose

I am continuing my Christmas cards/projects target and this is another card I made today.

The moose is stamped on a white circle. A Christmas hat is added to its head to make it more Christmas feel. The images are colored using Copic markers. Then, some faux stitching are added to the edges of the circle before it is distressed to tone down the whiteness. It is attached onto a yellow scalloped circle using foam tape. Two (2) giggle eyes are added to the moose.

Cookies and Gingerbread Season's Greetings

Cookies and Gingerbread Season's Greetings
I am continuing my Christmas cards/projects target today which I left it hanging for a month. So far, I only have one card and one tag and my target is to have at least five (5) Christmas cards/projects. Add-on with this card, I total have three (3) Christmas cards/projects in my hands now. Hopefully I can achieve my target by this weekend! *crossing fingers*


CAS(E) This Sketch #151
For this card, I am adopting CAS(E) This Sketch #151 as shown above. With this sketch, I also got inspired by The Friday Mashup Challenge - FM236 - It's Cookie Time! whereby I use both chocolate chip cookies and gingerbread man. I just love chocolate chip cookies especially during Christmas.
Close-up: Cookies, gingerbread man and sentiment
I started off by stamping the cookies in grid and leaving two (2) empty grids to stamp the gingerbread man and the sentiment. These cookies and gingerbread man are then colored using Copic markers. I randomly color the cookies shades in different directions to reflects the reality in baking. The corners are rounded and attached onto a purple card base.

Cookies and Gingerbread Season's Greetings - Inside
As the card base is quite dark to pen down message, a layer of inlay is used. Two (2) bitten cookies are stamped on the bottom left corner and upper right corner of the inlay and colored using Copic markers. The inlay is then corner rounded and attached to the inside of the card.
