I didn't even feel like stamping so I KNOW I was sick. Bad timing, huh?
I made these blocks last year so thought I'd get them out and display them with my Santa elves. I love making them too. I can pose them any way and they're happy to oblige. I painted the blocks with white acrylic then Mod Podged with Dasher DP from Basic Grey, sanded, sprayed with clear acrylic sealer and then Glitter Mist. I used Making Memories Rub-Ons for the wording. A labor of love but so cute on a shelf or here on one of the cut-out windows looking into my dining room.
The elf pattern came from a magazine many years ago. It called for some kind of cottony batting for the beard but I had some maribou feathers in my stash so I used those and loved them so much, I use them all the time. The noses are Femo clay...yes, I roll and bake each one. The arms and legs are bendable and they sit by themselves. I think each one has its own personality.
I have TONS of baking to do so not sure how much I'll be able to post but will try as I get some things finished.
Christmas Blessings and Happy Stamping New Year!
