Let the Bells Ring...

613 Ave C has a new challenge... "ATG: optional Winter/Holidays".  You have the month of December to show your creative talents!  For details of the challenge and for some very creative ideas - check out the DT inspiration concepts HERE!

This image and the sentiment are both from AI, Art Impressions [Bells Ring Set #4682],  it comes with the three unmounted rubber stamps, a die cut and one Action Wobble. 

  • Used a Sizzix embossing folder for the cover 
  • Colored the image with Copics and used white gel pen to add dots on the scarf & gloves  
  • Die cut out the extra 'bootie' to mount on the Action Wobble spring
  • Gold Wink of Stella used on the bells for sparkle
  • A 1/8th inch hole was punched to insert the ribbon on the left front panel - it was brought around the edge and tied in a bow
  • Used SU! punches for the sentiment and it's mat - this was layered over the ribbon hole to hide it

As you can see the you can shake his rear and make the bells 'ring'!  Amuses me - LOL!  If I can find really tiny bells I would love to glue them on.

  • Inside has been embossed with a Cuttlebug E-folder that leaves a space for a personalized message 
  • The sentiment from a 1994 Annette Allen Watkins rubber stamp has been die cut and elevated on foam tape
