Reverse Confetti's: Crazy For Christmas!

Today is Day Two of  Reverse Confetti's First Annual Crazy for Christmas online showcase event!  Click HERE for Day One!  We are going to share all kinds of fun projects with you, are you ready?!

Today's focus is on:  gift giving.  I picked up some fun wooden slice ornaments at the Target $ spot and stamped on them:

stamps:  reverse confetti jolly holiday/pineapples aplenty  ink:  ranger archival black, fresh ink fuschia/tuscan olive    other:  prismacolor pencils, target wooden slice ornaments, target $ spot bag, whisker graphics bitty bags

In the past I've bought multiple packages of goodies from the Target $ spot.  I'm trying to be 'better' because I have so much stuff....this is one of those times I was good and only bought 1 package of these wood slices and now regret not buying more.  They are so much fun!

You can easily use the wood slices as ornaments, gift toppers, mason jar embellishments....

First up is this Holiday Wishes ornament.  I stamped the santa and sentiment with Ranger Archival Black ink and used my Prismacolor Pencils to color in the images.    The Jolly Holiday set is just too cute!


I did the same thing with the reindeer image...can you tell that I colored in the snowflakes with the white coloring pencil?


I wanted to try colored ink and used the Pineapple Aplenty set with Impress Fresh Ink.  It works wonderfully....the ink sits on top of the wood slice, no bleeding.  I used Fuchsia and Tuscan Olive with the pineapple.


I ♡ the pineapple in fuchsia!  I popped on a couple of aqua enamel dots for contrast.

I know that my teamies have some super ideas for you:

  7. Love the idea of those circle ornaments. Even if they are on card stock, you could just have them ready to pop on a gift bag or a card. Great idea. Love that little Jolly Holiday Santa.
