Jingle Balls Trigger

I couldn't help it. First I have to start with a video clip from many years ago that has become a classic to my hubs and I. We find ourselves yelling "JINGLE ALL DA VAY!" more than a few times during the Christmas season... Please enjoy Conan O'Brien with a fake Arnold Shwarzenegger, trying to plug his great Christmas movie number 1 smash hit "Jingle all the Way".

The Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab for this week is so pretty and totally my style, I just had at it immediately

I think it will be fairly obvious how I was inspired by this photo: colors, shiny things, ornaments, holidays.

-Three ornaments cut on white cardstock using my Silhouette SD and Lettering Delights "Peppermint Holiday" cut its set (one of my favorite holiday sets, by the way!)
-I colored each piece using Colorbox chalk inks of teal, red, green, and gold
-Decorated each ornament with assorted matching rhinestones
-Covered the edges of each ornament with Glossy Accents. I think this is what makes them look so real!
-Created a bottom teal and green panel and stamped in red with Hero Arts "Very Merry Christmas" set

I hope you get a good laugh from that Conan clip, and happy hump day :)
