I am preparing for Christmas Fairs and as well as making cards and gifts, I like to make some decorations too. One of my best sellers last year was stamped wood slices with the cute Penguin Place stamp set. This time I want to add in some more grown up decorations too, so I have stamped some with the holly and berries from the Christmas Season stamp set…
As well as stamping the front, I added a sentiment from the Christmas To Remember stamp set on the back…
To help the stamping stand out a bit I gave my wood slices a coat of white acrylic paint. Obviously the wood is porous and soaks up a fair bit of the paint and it ends us with a kind of white wash look, that I really like. If you wanted a bolder background you could give it another coat or two of paint.
I stamped the leaves with Shaded Spruce and the berries with Cherry Cobbler. I purposefully used colours that I have matching Stampin’ Blends for. As the surface of the wood isn’t perfectly smooth this meant I could add in any missed bits from the stamping with the blends.
To hang these from your tree I added some white ribbon and I also added on one of the cute little jingle bell trinkets.
I hope you like this simple little project and might try it out too.
