Funny Christmas Pin

This is a funny pin I just finished. It was a bit of work but well worth it. I had seen a pin at split coast with crystal effects and wanted to try the technique.

Paper-Whisper white, Riding hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Baha Breeze, Close to Cocoa, Pumpkin Pie
Ink - Black Stazon
Stamps - Holiday Line up, Punch pals
Accessories - Ruby Red, Old Olive, Close to Coco, Chocolate chip Stamp'in write markers, blender pens, Crystal Effects, Tombow, Coluzzel, Pin back

  1. Start by stamping the snowmen from the Holiday line up set with black Stazon ink on Whisper white card stock
  2. Stamp the same image on scraps of the following card stock Riding hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Baha Breeze, Close to Cocoa, Pumpkin Pie
  3. Cut out hats, mittens, and scarves and arrange on Whisper White pin surface.
  4. When you are happy with your choices use stamp'in write markers to color and decorate areas that will not have colored card stock.
  5. I use blender pens to create dimension and fill areas.
  6. Glue down colored card stock with Tombow glue.
  7. Stamp snow flakes in the background.
  8. Cut out pin with coluzzel
  9. Cover with crystal effects and let dry
  10. Attach pin to back and cover with crystal effects.
