Stampin' Up Visions of Santa Wood Slice Ornaments!

Stampin' Up Visions of Santa Wood Slice Ornaments!
 Stampin' Up sent me this photopolymer stamp set
Visions of Santa!
 It's not a set I would normally buy myself...because I wasn't sure how I 
would use it...I'm unlikely to send Christmas cards with
 this silly Santa Dance team on it.  But...a-ha!  Ornaments!
These are PERFECT!
A touch of whimsy and silly!
 After some hedge trimming and yard work this fall...
My husband brought me a section of log.  About 3 inches in diameter or so.
I used my miter saw to cut 1/2" slices.
Then I baked them in the 170* oven for about 3 hours rotating every 45 minutes or so.
You will also need:
Black Stazon Ink pad
Clear block for stamping
Paint in Red, peach, brown, white and black
Twine
Drill and bit
 Start by placing your stamp on the clear block.
Then ink it up with stazon ink!
Stazon ink is amazing.  You can stamp it on anything...seriously.
It cleans off the stamp/block easily with a little rubbing alcohol.
 Press firmly on the wood slice.
Some of my wood was easier to stamp than others...press hard in every section.
 You can see there are some whoops places...but they are adorable!
 Next I used my palate...that I never clean...
and got red, white, brown and black paint...I didn't end up using silver.
 I watered it down just a touch and painted the wood.
It bleeds a little so plan accordingly!
 I love the grain lines of the tree showing through!
 Color them all up.
I went simple because I wanted to feature the wood slice and the silly Santa!
 Next, drill a small hole in the top of the slices...
and add a piece of twine!
 Hang them up for all to enjoy!
It totally makes me rethink this hairy legged Santa!
 These are the perfect images for ornaments!
What do you think?
