I've already shared with you my handmade elf on the shelf, created with Clear and Simple Stamps dies. In the 3 days he's been here, our elf has already stolen the kids' advent candy, rolled down the stairs in a toilet paper roll, and bathed in a tub of mini-marshmallows. Thank you, Pinterest, for making this stress-free and so fun for the kidlets.
Today, I'm back to share a few stamped elf-y projects.
I can't wait to watch "Elf" with the kids - that quote from the movie is the best, isn't it?
The how-to for this card involves stamping and masking the elves, sponging a soft brown shadow around them and (with the masks still in place), using a snowfall stencil and some embossing paste to make it look like they are caught in a mini-blizzard.
I also used the set to create a holiday treat box:
Slip a few cookies or chocolates into a box like this, with an optional gift card tucked in as well, for the teachers this year. That's my game plan!
I kept the coloring very simple. In addition, the main planks of the house image weren't colored at all, but sponged with ink. Consider that your time and marker-saving tip of the day. The only thing that could have made this project better would have been a die for that elf. coughahemcough.
To create the box, I die-cut two house-shapes and then whipped up a simple box for the middle.
