Gold Glitter Ornament Card

When I first sat down with the Holiday Catalog in July, it was love at first sight for me with the Embellished Ornaments stamp set and coordinating Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies. Today I’d like to share with you the second card in a series of cards that I am making with my stamp club.

Tips, Tricks, and Insights:

  • Layered Ornament – The Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies include elegant detailed dies as used in the Gold part of the ornament on this card and solid dies as shown in the red background. I found that the best way to adhere the two is a two-way glue pen. Although the Fine-tip Glue Pen is great for small spaces; these spaces are a little too small if you have a heavy hand when applying glue, like I do 😉

  • Working with Detailed Dies – There are many small holes in this ornament die. Neither you nor I have time to punch out each hole. There’s a secret ingredient that does this for you, dryer sheets. After die cutting the card stock, in this case the Gold Glimmer Paper, place the cut out die on top of a few layered dryer sheets. Place these on top of the Magnetic Platform and Cutting Pad. Place the die back in place on top of the cut out ornament. Top with another Cutting Pad to make a sandwich and run the ornament back through the Big Shot. Once finished, remove the cutting pad and die and gently peel the ornament off the dryer sheets. The little holes remain on the dryer sheet.

  • Sentiments for the Inside – Although not pictured on this card, the Versatile Christmas stamp set makes a wonderful stamp set to use on the inside. I did use one of the sentiments on the inside.

A Wedding Toast

Hello! It’s been several months since I’ve written a blog post. My work-life has been extremely busy and Stamping took a place on the back-burner, focusing only on my monthly clubs and classes. Well, I’m attempting to get back to blogging 🙂  While work isn’t as crazy as it has been, it’s still busy. Therefore, I’ll post as frequently as I am able. I hope you don’t mind that I took a bit of a break.

Today’s card features a twist on using the Delicate Ornaments Thinlits Dies, which coordinates with the new Embellished Ornaments stamp set. Both are from Stampin’ Up!’s 2015 Holiday catalog.

Today’s card was inspired by Candy Ford during a recent Inking Royalty Blog Hop. I am always impressed by crafters when they can see one image as something completely different. That is the case with Candy’s awesomely creative Christmas card in which she converted the ornament dies into wine glasses. You can see her card here.

Tips, Tricks and Insights:

  • Making Wine Glasses – Take the hollow tall, thin die from the Delicate Ornaments Thinlits Dies and only cut out the top portion of a piece of vellum, positioning it on the Big Shot as shown below. Do the same with the Blackberry Bliss “wine”.

  • Work with Gravity – When you tilt a glass full of liquid the liquid always remains level horizontally. Such needed to be the case with the wine in these velum glasses. Before adhering the wine and glasses down, I positioned them where I wanted them and used a ruler to draw a straight horizontal line for how the wine would level out when the glasses were tilted during the toast.

  • Mr. & Mrs. Tags –  The smallest Framelit from the Lots of Labels Framelits Dies was the perfect size to trim the “Mr.” and “Mrs.” tags which were stamped from the For the New Two stamp set.
  • Thick Whisper White Card Stock – Thick Whisper White Card stock served as the perfect base for this card.

Today’s card is one of three cards that my stamp club will be making this month featuring the Embellished Ornaments stamp set and Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies. I’ll be sharing the other two cards in upcoming blog posts, both of which are Holiday cards.

A big shout out goes to Candy Ford for inspiring this card.

Blessings,

Kelly
