Candy Wrapper Advent Calendar # 10

candy wrapper die advent
Number 10 is a little elf. I haven't had time today to do a photo how to on making him - maybe tomorrow . .. but briefly he was made using a 1 1/4" circle punch for his head. A 1 3/8" circle for his shoulders, which has been punched again using the Scalloped Oval punch to give the scallops on the bottom edge. His ears are the wing from the Bird Builder punch.

His hat is punched from dsp using the largest petal in the Blossom Petal punch, with the brim punched using a 1 3/4" circle punch. 3/8" circles for the hat bobble, and for his nose. 1/4" and 1/8" circles for his eyes.

EDITED TO ADD: I have now done the tutorial, which is on the next post here.

I thought I would pop on a Christmas card as well:

This is one that I designed for a recent stampers ten project pack. It uses the Pines and Poinsettias stamp set, and the Holly Berry DSP. I stamped the rose & poinsettia stamp in Versamark as a background on the top half of the Cherry Cobbler card base, and embossed the greeting (from Curly Cute) with clear embossing powder at the bottom.

I die cut the circle for the image panel, and then inked up the rose and poinsettia stamp using my markers and used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp it onto the circle. I then stamped another poinsettia image onto a scrap of card, cut it out and popped it onto the main image with dimensionals. The scalloped mat behind the main image is cut using the Perfect Pennants die.

You can't see in the photo, but the white areas of the flowers have been glittered with Dazzling Diamonds, so the image has a pretty twinkle to it which brings the card alive.
