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!!

Shape: Wreath (Say It With Letters)
Stamps: Bright Snow (Unity Stamp Company)
