Smiling Christmas Ornaments

Hi everyone

Today I wanted to share a card I made to enter into the August SPARKS challenge over at the Paper Smooches' blog. To go check out the challenge, please click the graphic below:

The challenge is to make a project using this beautiful photo as the inspiration


I took inspiration from the colors and the rhinestone bling in the photo. Here's my card:

Stamps by Paper Smooches
I used the large smiley face from Paper Smooches' "Sugar Rush" to stamp on the ornaments. I colored two pieces of white cardstock with Copics to match the blue and pink colors in the photo.
I then made templates for, and cut out two of the ornaments. The last one was cut with a circle punch. I cut out some toppers for the ornaments, and added rhinestones. To make the card even more sparkling, I added some clear stickles around the edge of each ornament. I'm sorry that I couldn't really capture that sparkle in my photographs of the card!
I added embroidery floss to the backs of the ornaments, and attached them to a brown cardlayer using foam adhesive. The ends of the strings were attached to the back of the brown layer, which was then adhered onto a brown cardbase with a white layer.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Vilken härlig "take on" ("tolkning" låter ju så trist...)Paper Smooches bilden. Dina kulor är ju helt UNDERBARA!
Tror starkt på dig som GD snart - du har så himla skön stil med Kims stämplar!
Kul också att du läser till lärare! Bästa, men jobbigaste jobbet man kan välja! Jag kom just tillbaka (på 100%) efter 3 års mamma-ledighet och det har nog varit dom jobbigaste jobb-veckorna på 15 år som lärare!
Ha en skön helg!
