PTI Blog Hop

Time for another PTI Blog Hop!  This month's theme was to be inspired by one of your Christmas ornaments or decorations...

I chose this adorable crackled snowman ornament I got for my birthday long ago from my sister Kris!  I used the snowman from Holiday Tree by Heather Nichols for PTI.  I actually painted the stamp with Tim Holtz Crackle Paint in Picket Fence, then stamped onto PTI kraft paper.  I went over the snowman with Tim Holtz Distress inks when it was dry.  Cut it out and added extra buttons (mini brads) like my ornament!  The star was also painted with Crackle Paint in Scattered Straw and then distressed further with inks.  That ribbon is from a gift someone gave me (also from long ago), and I have been saving it for just the right occasion!  I tied the star to the ribbon with twine, and added a torn paper snowbank using Vintage Cream paper.  I added some Sakura Stardust glitter pen to the center of the stamped snowflakes so they TWINKLE...just like my ornament does!

Thanks so much for stopping by on the HOP!
