Red, Green, Gold Somethings Challenge

Happy Friday!!

We have a new challenge for you on STAMP SOMETHING today, a color challenge! It's red, green, and gold! Make anything you wish for this challenge as long as you use these colors in your project! I'm happy to share that Whimsy Stamps is sponsoring the challenge this week! We'll be giving away 2 free stamps to one lucky winner. If you'd like to play along, please post your entry by 7pm EST, on Thursday, December 18th.

For my project, I chose to make an ornament using a chipboard coaster. I got this idea from Vicki Parson, of Stamped Smiles, she's always got super creative ideas!

I began by covering the coaster with printed paper, then I added a jumbo eyelet for the ribbon. The ribbon is red taffeta with gold elastic cord tied around it. I stamped and colored my moose, available now from Whimsy Stamps. Then I cut him out and glued him to the coaster. I added some snow under his feet with a snow writer pen and glitter. The sentiment is from Short and Sweet, a SU! set. The final touch was to add a scarf around his neck! This scarf came from the set Favorite Teddy Bear, also SU!, but retired.

These are so easy and fun to make, I decided to make another. This time I used my Whimsy Owl, also available now at Whimsy Stamps. I added a frame using my oval scalloped Nestabilities. I also added Iridescent Ice EP around the owl image. The accents on this ornament are felt snowflakes, white taffeta ribbon with gold elastic cord, a rhinestone brad, and some stickles.

Thanks for popping in today, hope you'll head over to STAMP SOMETHING and check out the design team samples and then maybe stamp something red, green, and gold with us this week!

Have a great weekend! Happy Stamping!! :)
