Happy 12-12-12 everyone!! I have a creation I made for the PKS Challenge #46. You must create a 3D ornament project for this challenge. I decided to make an elegant Christmas Tree ornament using the PK stamps.

PK December Release Challenge #1

For this challenge hosted by the talented Jennie Garcia from the PK design team, you have to create any project you like, however, you must include a drink. My drink of choice for this project was wine. We have had this wine for a bit and I decided it needed a cute cover. So here is what I came up with. A cute vintage winter wine cover. Say that three times fast. LOL. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.

The main products used besides the PK stamps were: a Chip Decor' "K" from Hobby Lobby, Recollections Wooden Buttons, Paper Studio Paper from Hobby Lobby, twine and the burlap cover I scored at Michael's for 59 cents. I decided not to use the burlap flower pictures due to the size.

I used the Cricut Cartridge Chip Decor' and More that is exclusive to Hobby Lobby and cut the "K" at 3.5 inches. This is the same size as the chip board letter. Having that cartridge made decorating the "K" so easy. I then ink around the edges with Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink

Isn't it cute? I sure think so. I love how the K turned out with the adorable snowman form PK-144 Smitten Mitten.

Products Used: 
PK-480 Christmas Characters (Face on snowman)
