Snowflake key chain and altered kids puzzle game: last minute Holidays gifts with IBS

Winter is right here and the last minute  Holiday gifts too. So here we go with 2 quick last minute  possuble gifts to make.


This is my new altered jewelry piece in  Mixed Media style. As you can see the whole chain is a mix of jewelry findings and stamped with Inspired by Stamping snowflake image charms from Elegant Christmas Sentiments set.
I stamped the snowflakes with blue pigmented ink, heat embossed it with clear embossing powder and then covered with a clear plastic bubble as it's a true wearable piece  of craft.
The beaded rectangle is my own crystal beading (never again as it was hard ad long  crafty experience) and the whole piece is a lovely wintery gift.


And now for a second possible quick gift: altered kids stamped  puzzle game.

This is a really easy, 10 minutes to make, altered kids toy piece  made with one single and most gorgeous  IBS winter stamp from December 25TH set.  I am really sorry that I didn't take a " before" photo, but is was a Smiley  round image over this  moving parts 10 cents  plastic puzzle. Lucky, the smiley face size was just the perfect match to this lovely stamp , that was stamped with dark blue ink over a simple white cardstock and then heat embossed with clear embossing ink. The circle was hand cut with craft knife over the original lines  and then covered with a thin layer of glossy medium to make it durable for kids play.The outer frame was covered with  clear glitter for this fine wintery look.
This is a  perfect piece for a " mass production" of gifts: cheap, one stamped image only and makes an easy and lovely gift.
