Elf Ornament

I was excited when I learned that I would get the Christmas Solutions Cricut cartridge with the Gypsy download last month. I didn't have this one and had been wanting it. I wanted to break it in when I heard about the "Let's Face It" challenge over at Peachy Keen. We were supposed to make an ornament. I thought this cute little elf would work well. I stamped his face with Funshine Faces Side View Peach Keen stamps. My husband suggested that I make a character holding a present attached to a fun Action Wobble. This seemed like the perfect time to do that. I have a feeling my children will be playing with this ornament a bit.

Here is a quick video demostrating the Action Wobble. It is interesting how the size of the object affects how much the wobble seems to move. I am really having fun experimenting with these.

*Please note that any videos recommended at the end of this are not endorsed by me.

Items Used:
*Christmas Solutions Cartridge
*Peachy Keen Stamps Funshine Faces Side View

I also wanted to thank all of you who have started following me from Peachy Keen's Facebook fan base. I hope you will find a lot to enjoy at my little papercrafting blog. Thanks Peachy Keen Stamps! You are amazing!

Full Disclosure: I was given the Action Wobbles at no cost to me to review on this blog. However, if I didn't believe in it, I wouldn't be talking it up!

  8. Glora I love this to pieces!! I am not used to seeing the funshine faces on a more realistic-human figure, but I have to say this looks fantastic! All the detail doodling looks wonderful as well! Great job!! :) ~ Angelica
