|Hello Friends, How are you?? |
I know we are well into December but, it's never to late to giveaway one of Simon Says Stamps Card Kits!
I can promise you I will be making some Valentines card with this card kit ...love all the beautiful papers from Pink Paislee.
Just leave me a comment telling me if you in the holiday spirit & I will pick a winner next week sometime.
(I'm not so good at setting dates as of late)
|Below is a mini tutorial on creating ornaments from patterned paper. The shapes of the ornaments are cut from these & these Spellbinders die cuts. One day I will buy these because all three ornaments in a cluster will look FAB!|
BTW.... here, here, here & here are some other ornament cards I have made with the dies.
|I love this vintage paper so I centered my die cut onto the images on the paper that I wanted to cut out with the die cut.|
|Add some distress ink in some fun colors and brown ink on the edges. Use a brush to apply this for the most beautiful iridescence. (be sure to clean your brush right away and these are my all time favorite brushes. ) Note that the paper will change below.|
|I love the stamp set sentiment called "Merry Everything" in the kit and it can be purchased separately too. I lined up three of the sentiments on this fiskars stamp press and stamped away on the background paper. Super easy with the stamp press to line everything up. |
Are you familiar with the card kits? Every month you will find a beautiful exclusive stamp set . I love how each card kit always contains some special embellishment that I have't seen before besides beautiful papers etc. This month it was this and this. I was determined to use the festive holly. I was able to carefully bend the tips of the holly so it looks super realistic on my ornaments & gave my card that little extra something special.
|I wanted to show you how it came out before adding the ornaments. I still haven't unpacked my twine or can't find it so i cut some paper that resembles string to "hang" the ornaments on my card. Hope you like them and I so appreciate your visit during this busy holiday season. Hugs, Kathy|
P.S Have you seen the new exclusive Valentine goodies at Simon?? OH MY!! You can check them out here.

|I used two blobs of enamel accents on his eyes like I shared here.|
