It's Beginning to Look . . .

a lot like Christmas . . . !! This is my very first Design Team post for Say It With Letters!! When I got home from the cruise (I know, will I ever post some pics already??) I had a fun package waiting for me - the dog had even opened it for me - let's just say I'm so glad it was a pretty MDF shape instead of pretty paper or stamps! LOL!

I thought about several different options for this pretty Christmas Wreath but here's what I came up with. I started by painting a base coat, adding some crackle medium and then painting a white top coat. What a cool thing that crackle medium is! Then I took my brand new Bright Snow stamp from Unity Stamp Company and stamped it repeatedly (with the help of my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig) on the wreath with Versamark. I used Heat & Stick powder to add the red glitter (heat the Heat & Stick, sprinkle on the glitter and heat again). I LOVE the look! It reminds me of those warm fuzzy Fair Isle sweaters, you know the ones? (it was very hard to capture a good picture of how pretty the glitter really is!).

To finish it, I made a bow with some yummy green velvet ribbon and gold wired berries I found in my Christmas stash. It didn't need too much "stuff" kwim? :)

This project was soooooo fast and easy! Wouldn't it make a great early Christmas gift?!

One more little tidbit . . . while I was away Deb added a few fun shapes and kits in the Say It With Letters Etsy store. Can I share one with you that is near and dear to me? Check out this cute little guy!! My very first shape design!! I'm so excited to actually see it - whoooo doesn't love owls (sorry about that!)!! I hope you love him and maybe even add him to your collection! :) I'd love to see what you make with him so be sure to send me a picture!!

  1. Julie, this is beautiful. Honestly I thought it was patterned paper until you said you had stamped it. Fantastic job! And that owl is adorable! Congratulations. -Molly B.

  2. Beautiful---love what you did with those stamps!

  3. OMGosh Julie~~~~This is absolutely beautiful! I thought it was some dp but when I saw that it's paint and glitter I just about fell off my chair. Seriously...Wow!! You rock.

  4. I've been back to look at this so many times and only just realised I hadn't said how gorgeous it is - It's stunning.

  5. This is gorgeous Julie!!!! WOW!!

  6. Amazing! I can't believe you stamped's so perfect! Love the glitter and the addition of the ribbon and berries is sooo perfect!

  7. I LOVE this! There's only 1 store in my area that has the Unity stamps so hopefully I'll be able to get some soon!
