I took the day off today so I could go to town and do my Christmas shopping. I've been swamped for the last 2 weeks straight! I got it all done and wrapped before everyone else got home, so I'm feeling pretty good today! I even had time to make 3 more ornaments. Tomorrow morning I am teaching how to make these to 20 third graders! (my dd's class) Her teacher bought enough glass ornaments at the dollar tree for all the students. Here is a link to Juliann's picture tutorial in case you'd like instructions :)
This little snowman is not a stamp actually. For her class, I found a bunch of Christmasy coloring pages and shrunk them down on a copy machine (at work) to get them just the right size. Then I cut each picture out and taped them onto my master page that has 6 traced ornaments on it, and then ran the transparencies through. I have about 16 different designs and ran about 3 of each so the kids have plenty to choose from! :) My sister found the Glitterex white glitter at Michael's for me, and that's what's in the bottom of the ornaments (use a funnel to pour it in).
In my second picture, I stamped my zebra (Cape Arago) onto a piece of white typing paper and shrunk it down to fit onto my traced ornament as well. I made this one for my pastor's/boss' wife who loves zebras. See this post. For the zebra, I stamped him in Black Stazon and then on the back side, I used my Signo white gel pen for the lines. You can't see that with the white background here, but the white really stands out on these transparencies!
And, last but not least, my horse ornament is for my neighbor who let my girls ride her horses for her 9th birthday last month! Very sweet lady, See this post. This horse is from SU!'s set called, "Bareback".
I went to town today and found a ton of colors in the permanent markers for these. I might as well make good use of them right? So I've decided to let my Treasure Seekers girls make these Wednesday night as well.
Thanks for stopping by! :)
