Sneak Peek: StampTV Kit Holiday Cheer

Today I just used one image from the new Gina K StampTV Holiday Cheer kit and some of the beautiful ribbon and card stocks included. Instead of holly, I decided to make this hanging sprig mistletoe* so I could accent it with the new 3mm white pearls (an exact fit for the berries in the illustration!), perfect to hang on the tree or over a doorway! :) I colored it with Copics, adhered the pearls, and outlined the ribbon with Versamarker and embossed to give it this festive gold edge. I cut it out and popped it up on the Pure Luxury White pendant diecut, and then adhered that to my Rocket Red Scalloped Square, aren't those Nestabilities die cuts gorgeous layered?! I mean WOW!

Here is the closeup. I added a few more pearls to accent the base and punched a hole through the top with my Cropodile for the ribbon. This project took very little time and money to make, but I think I will be creating a lot of these ornaments for friends, as well as to decorate our own tree. Using the assortment of Christmas images in the new kit, you could do an entire collection of them using the different designs. (I better get on that!) ;)
