On the 12th Day of Christmas

…IHP is sponsoring Paper Craft Planet!  That’s right!  Today we’re the sponsor for the last day of the 12 Days of Christmas and you can have your chance to win a prize pack worth $70 that includes ALL SEVEN Chicken Girl Design stamp sets!  How awesome is that??  Hop on over to PCP for the hint and be sure to visit Lynn, who is hosting today’s challenge.  She’s got an awesome project for you!

pcp12days For my project today I used the cute little penguin from It’s A Snow Day to make this ornament.  He is stamped in Palette Noir and cut out and popped up, mounted to the back of the tin.  The background paper is a little circle of Snow Globe that I cut out with my Circle Nesties.

I colored him with some markers and dotted the hat and chest with Icicle Stickles for some shimmer.  Then, when it was all dry I added some White Flower Soft for snow and then closed up the tin with a strip of i {stick} papers (our very own, made exclusively for us red line sticky strip tape – 60 YARD roll!).  Then I wrapped the tin with 1” pink satin ribbon and made a loopy at the top, again using i {stick} papers.

barbostree On a personal note, we went to the tree farm and cut down our Christmas tree last night.  Mr. Barbo even “helped” (aka made it more difficult to cut down a tree) but it was all part of the fun.  I’ll post a shot once it is decorated but here it is still at the farm.

Have a great weekend!  Thanks for stopping by today!
