Crafter's Companion stamps and make something SHINY! That's what the CC Challenge Blog is asking for this month: a card or project that uses a Crafter's Companion Stamp and Make it Sparkle.
I had an idea to make a Christmas wreath using some CDs from my stash, but circles and I have never been too friendly. Then I saw someone use plastic lids of assorted sizes and made a wreath out of them. Well, darn if I couldn't find my inspiration again, so I just tried to piece a wreath together myself. I stamped, colored and cut out the four images from the Cute Companions Christmas Magic stamp set by Jayne Nestorenko and the CC inspirational team. I like the way they are designed, as you can use them to create ornaments, or to put together with another stamp from the set to make snow globes.
So once I used my Creative Memories circle cutter on the images, I was able to cut out three more sizes of circles for my wreath.
I cut out a chipboard circle base on which to adhere my circles. I started with the largest, all made from CTMH patterned papers (thanks, Melissa) and placed them on the base, using some dimensional tape on some but not all the circles. Once I had them all down, I started adding snowflakes and stars and bling.
Yes, you're right, I even Stickled some of the lines on the patterned paper circle!
Of course, having put a shine on the images, I couldn't leave my white snowflakes to be ignored, now, could I?
No, I thought you'd agree with me! So for the several snowflakes I added to my wreath (thank you, Linda) I added Diamond Stickles, jewels, and Skittles.
