So for this set I used Rupa's The Magic Of Christmas.........I stamped them on the shrink plastic (I used the Frosted type) and then colored them using Copics. I will warn you that SU markers bleed a LOT and get all over your fingers forever if you use them on shrink plastic!!! I've heard Sharpies work well, but I haven't tried them yet. Then I punched a tiny hole at the top *before* I shrunky dunk them!!! If you wait until after.........you can't punch a hole!!!! LOL
Then using my Piercing tool to hold on slightly, I heat up the charm using my heat gun. I'm FAR too impatient to wait for an oven!!!! After it squigglies and wigglies and looks incredibly weird............it will flatten out. Immediately, while it's still hot, roll over it with a pen or something similar to get it evenly flat. Then lift it gently off the table surface so it will cool and not stick to the table. Now you can use it however you'd like!! I used these with some hoops and holiday beads to make the wine glass charms!!! What do you think????
The business trip in to Denver is just about over and we checked out of the hotel and will be heading home when he's finished at the office. Good thing as even though a quick trip is fun, I miss my kids, my home, my mountain, my stamp room......................AND.........................
Of COURSE the dog had her PUPPIES yesterday while we're in Denver!!!!! So guess what my teenagers got to handle??? Puppy births!!!! LOL Well, DS did.............DD staunchly refused to be a "dog" person as she is a confirmed "cat" person!!! LOL DS is handling everything wonderfully, but I sooooo can't wait to see these puppies!!!! 6 healthy lab-mix pups!! Free to a good and happy home in 8 weeks...............anyone want one??? LOL Well, I'll be back later with more fun creations AND pictures of those adorable little bundles of fur!!!!
************Please if anyone can help me figure out how I'm uploading my pics so you can no longer click for a larger version, help me!!! I have looked all over my settings and can't figure it out!!!
