CRACK - The Sound of Glass Breaking - HIP HOP


Good morning and good day!  If you're here for the UNITY and IPPITY CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT / KID's CRAFT HIP HOP  - WELCOME!

CHECK the Unity Blog for NEW NEW NEWS - something about Webster's Pages???

Christmas is getting closer and closer....can you feel it in the air?  I thought I saw snow today (just a tiny bit).  I was so "in the mood" that I created 2 projects for you today using the NEW Jillibean Soup holiday set called "Jolly Good Fun".


Here is my FIRST CRACK at this ornament (ha ha - pun totally intended!)


And here is my second attempt, I switched out the Faux Snow for plastic pebbles - they remind me of SNOWBALLS - and match the mittens and sentiment!  I stamped on a piece of acetate with Staz-on and colored it with Copic marker.  I made sure to punch a hole in the top of the acetate so that it would hang (with the twine).  The ribbon is meant to be a scarf.  I hot glued pom pom ribbon on the ends.


Supplies:
Stamps: Unity Stamp Co. (Jolly Good Fun)
Ribbon: May Arts
Adhesive: Glue Arts Glue Gun, Adhesive Squares
Twine: The Twinery
Markers: Copic
 Ink: Tsukineko Staz-on

AND here is my second ornament.  I was cleaning the house and was planning on chucking this, but thought - MAYBE I could re-purpose this someday.  Little did I know that it would be so soon!

Here is the original:


And here is the NEW ONE!


Supplies:
Stamps: Unity Stamp Co. (Jolly Good Fun)
Adhesive: Glue Arts Glue Gun, Adhesive Squares
Twine: The Twinery
Paint: Shimmerz (Tickle Me Turquoise)
Markers: Copic
Glitter Glue: Stickles by Ranger
Faux Snow & Glitter: Art Glitter Institute
Ink: Stewart Superior
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities
Cardstock: Core'dinations
Paint: Gesso
Other: Sealent Spray, chipboard snowflake
