Something Festive

Hello and happy monday, dear crafty friends (:o) Long time no creation for Crafty Individuals. I'm going to change this today, because me hit an idea for the current challenge: Something festive  for december

Supplies: 3 Doilys, Speciality Stamping Paper, Distress Inks, Staz On, Stamps, Felt Pens, Perfect Medium Brush, Utee,  Glue, Mod Podge, Distress Glitter, Stickles, Yarn, Halfpearls, leftover piece of organca and some ribbon

Cut a circle of cardboard in diameter of the middle section of the doily

Use distress inks....

on both sides on all 3 doily edges

Stack on to each other and crease the middle

Use yarn and sew all 3 doilys together on the middle line

Leave a bit yarn on both sides for the hanging section

Cut 6 circles from specialty stamping paper...

..and start stamping.

Amongst other's, i used CI-353, CI-156, CI-363, CI-366

Some examples

As you can see in the picture below, i've also coloured some images with felt pens. Used a perfect medium brush on top to heat emboss with utee.

Accordingly use distress ink on top

Embellish with stickles and glue all circles to the doilys

Use Mod Podge on the edges of the doilys and sprinkle on some distress glitter. The Mod Podge makes the edges of the doilys more firm...

Trace a ballerina on stamping paper and cut out. Use stickles on the edges and create a little tutu. I also used halfpearls and glued to the yarn.

Well, this is a festive variation and i'm in the blue mood this year but you can also make it vintage for a hole year occasion.
It wasn't that easy to take good pictures with missing daylight. Here you see my construction

Hope you like it and maybe you give it a try.
Thanks for reading and your appreciated comments

Das ist ja mal wieder schön geworden, Elly - und ungewohnt romantisch! Über deine Fotokonstruktion musste ich grade sehr lachen (:o)

What a beautiful project, Elly! I just love all the images inside the lacy bauble... a joy to see all those wonderful stamps in their decorative home. And so much fun to see the trouble you went to to photograph it for us... thank you!!
