Something Tattered Holiday Blog Hop !!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
Welcome to the First Annual Something Tattered Holiday Blog Hop!
If you came here from Mandy's blog then you are on the right track.
If not, head to the Something Tattered Blog for the full blog roll.

We are so excited to share our creations using the gorgeous vintage style stamps created by Beth Neumann. Our Design Team has been hard at work crafting their Holiday projects for you to see! We hope that you will be inspired and want to try some of these beautiful and elegantly detailed stamps for yourself!

My project is a vintage winter skate:

I started with  skates I rescued from the Goodwill for 3$. i didn't really clean them up much because I like the worn look. I applied Rub'n Buff is Silver the blades to soften the look.
Using satin ribbon, I re threaded the skate and hot glued the ribon in the folds that I wanted. The white velvet poinsettias and greenery were items I had on hand but can be easily found at a craft store or even the dollar store.

I used the "Amore" stamp set to stamp and glitter all around the skate. 
Here is a close-up:

Here is the "Amore" stamp set:

It's difficult to capture on the camera but it is very glittery and delicate in real life!

So, on with the hop!
