Christmas Ornimant

Meet little sparkles snowman! This is another stamp in one of the new upcoming sets being released on the 17th of July from Clear Artistic Stamps. This little guy is the perfect size for a Christmas tree ornament.
How I did it was...Stamp image on acetate with stays-on. take 2 pieces of chipboard & paint them white. Then color in the little snowman's hat & Bow. spray both sides of the finished acetate with spray adhesive....I like Elmer's craft bond...then sprinkle with white glitter...one side at a time. Then when the chipboard is dry, spray those pieces with the adhesive & glitter. When all pieces are dry make a "sandwich" with the acetate in the center of the 2 pieces of chipboard. Punch a hole in the top with crop-a-dial. Add your string or whatever you choose to hang it with & that is it!!! very quick & easy!!!
***TIP***Just thought I would let you know...I figured out how to make glitter show up!!! FINALLY!
You just have to take the picture at night! I kept trying to take all my glittery pictures in very bright light...so just by accident I took this one late last night & what do you know!!! sparkles like crazy :)
Well unfortunately it is Monday :( I am off to work for the next 6 days!!! I will definitely be back for some more sneak peaks & the total release though...hope you all have a great week!!!
