So I'm a day late, but here is my second Serendipity project for October. This time we were challenged to use Thanksgiving stamps and I love, love, love this kitty and puppy pilgrim set (1125 & 1126). I decided that they would make great wine glass charms. So I stamped them on to shrink plastic with staz-on ink, and then colored them in with colored pencils. I then punched my holes (remember the holes shrink too), and hit it with the heat gun. After that I made loops from copper wire and hung them on my glasses!
I think they turned out super cute!
Imagine using Serendipity stamps to make charms for every Holiday or Occasion. Simple, easy, and inexpensive!
And check out the projects that everyone else posted yesterday on their blogs:
Here are some odds and ends from the last couple days. First off here is a yummy chicken lasagna I made... This is the second try the first time the flavor was a little bland, but I kicked it up with hot sauce this time and it was much better. It will certainly be making more repeat performances here.
Here are two little anteaters I created for a swap at Craftster.org one in traditional colors and one in fun purples. Hope my partner likes them....
Jac has been working on a totem pole for a project in school. Here it is all finished, I think he did a great job!
And I got a new camera... Loving it so far, very easy to use and it takes a great macro shots... here is a picture of the mum on my porch!
For Serendipity's first October challenge we were given this photo to use as inspiration. The photo comes from the blog: 3191 Miles Apart. When I first looked at the image there were lots of things that jumped out at me. The bright oranges, the way the oranges and nuts are arranged in a row. But in the end I took my inspiration from a more subtle part of the photo. The tablecloth.
I used one of the new stamps just released Snowman Trio (1251H). I stamped the image with versa mark ink and then used white embossing powder. Then layered up several colors of cardstock. Added snowflakes to the corners, some glitter pen, and finally topped the whole thing with a large white bow. I intend to set this on my entertainment center come winter. It will make a nice winter accent between all the photos I have there.
