Santa Baby!

Hi, well we are home from CHA and full of inspiration! Today I am showcasing a necklace Jillian and I made as a team!

I love how Julianna Hudgins uses Shrinky Dink material in a lot of her projects so I thought I would try it too!
I found it at Michaels and also you will need Staz-On ink.
First I stamped  the frame from the Foto Frames Stamp Set in Staz-On Silver ink onto the Black Shrinky Dink material and added Picture Perfect from the {die}velop Everyday Fotos stamp set.  Then using AJVD {die}velop Foto Frames and {die}alogue Bubbles die set I cut out the black material.  I then stamped the Santa Baby image from the Santa Baby stamp set onto the white Shrinky Dink sheet then cut it with the Foto Frames die also.  I colored in the hat using water color markers.
Then put them on a brown paper bag on a cookie sheet in the oven and followed the Shrinky Dink directions.
They will curl ~ don't be alarmed, as they will flatten out as they curl and you can carefully help them get flatter too!
Then Jillian took Black Pear Pins and started added glass seed beads to them and flower charms to 4 of them to compliment the flower in the Santa Baby's hair.
And there you have it . . . another use for the Pear Pins and a fun way to use the stamps and dies!
Jillian wore this at CHA and got lots of compliments!
