SDC73 – Hanging Decoration

I have been so busy with the CyberCrop stuff I let the last couple of Stampotique Designer Challenges pass me by – but I saw this one this morning and just had the idea for it pop into my head so I carried thru – not something I always manage.  I know they now allow you to use any stamps, but I always try to use the Stampotique ones if I can.  But I am feeling like I need some new ones to play with as it’s been AGES since I’ve ordered new ones and there are some cute ones out now in the new releases.

Anyway, it’s a pretty simple thing – I made one of the paper barn stars, broke out my stamp positioner and stamped the little NAUGHTY and NICE guys on a cut-up white star then coloured them in with my Copics, before I scored and creased it to get the 3D effect. I masked the stamped image and stamped the background with the big swirly stamp.   Those bits I stuck over a red cardstock star, to give it more weight and stability.  I added a little star brad and a stick pin that rotates to point to the different options, naughty or nice.  I thought it might be fun for DD (or NOT!) during the holiday season.

  It was fun to make and I always enjoy the challenges. Plus it’s nice to do something crafty that doesn’t involve the computer quite so much!
