Merry & Bright Door Hanger

Good Thursday Morning Peeps!!!

Yesterday I spent a fun afternoon with a friend making this adorable door hanger. Wendy has been making these alot and I have admired hers so she asked me to come join her and make one. She said bring whatever you want to decorate your door hanger! I had no idea at first what I wanted to do since I had never made one before. So I decided to go with something I love. The Stampin Up Greeting Card Kids stamp set and the Deck the Halls DS paper. I used a card I made last week for an inspiration for this hanger and actually after finishing, Wendy said they made a cute set.

Here is a picture of them together:

The door hanger is a thin piece of wood, purchased from a big box craft store. I covered mine with a piece of paper from the Deck the Halls paper pack using the tombow mono multi liquid glue. I sorta of copied Wendy's design on the one she was working on, by adding a piece of paper on the hanger at an angle. So clever she is!! I used a piece of Cherry cobbler card stock that I embossed with the Petals a Plenty EF. I them added a couple of strips of always artichoke scallops behind the edges of the Cherry cobbler.

I stamped the little Christmas girls with black stazon onto very vanilla card stock and colored with my aqua painter and ink pads. I used Soft Suede, cherry cobbler, more mustard, always artichoke and blush blossom. I cut her out with circle and scallop circle nesties. She is added to the Hanger with some foam tape. The sentiment is from the Bright Christmas stamp set. I stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink onto the very vanilla. I curled it a bit and cut a "V" in the end. I added a always artichoke button with a bit of twine, I used a non SU punch for my small snowflakes and added a pearl to the centers. I just had to add the ribbon seam binding bow and called it done. Whatcha think? Would this be a nice little gift?

Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
