I got the cute little poem from My Creative Corner. The poem reads:
With Little elf eyes watching you,
There's not a lot that Santa misses,
So to help you be good today,
Here's a bunch of sweet Elf kisses.
I embossed the bottom of the treat topper with little an X border to reinforce the kiss theme.
My son turns 13 on Thursday and he is big into "potty humor" so I had to do a boy version for him.
Paper Crafts by Candace. The poem reads:
I hear you've been naughty,
So listen, here's the scoop.
All you get for Christmas,
is this bag of Elf Poop!
I didn't think an X border was appropriate here so I just did diagonal slashes.
I got the color ideas from Kay Miller. She made some adorable projects using these elves. Check them out here. I used Prismacolor pencils blended with Gamsol. I am totally amazed at how easily the Gamsol blended away the pencil lines. It made coloring very enjoyable! The only thing I found difficult was doing the little stripes on the tights. I have since bought a smaller blending stump so that should make blending easier for future projects. I goofed when I was coloring so I have a few other versions to share. Oh and I stamped the images on the little insert sheet that tells the color names of the cardstocks. It's a little thinner than the Stamper's Select white I usually use but for this project I didn't want so many layers of thick cardstock so those inserts worked perfectly!
I got these dress up dolls for my daughter to play with. She is loving coloring in the images but I have to say I am loving them too! They have soo many cute outfits! If these sell well I will do another version for the Spring craft show. They have a cute little bunny outfit for the dolls to dress up in!
