I have a small Christmas tree in my studio and since Christmas ornaments are not available here (overseas), I figured I’ll make my own.  For my projects today, I am showcasing the Ornament Shaker Die Set with the Holiday Greetings Die Set.

NND_DecktheHallsInkyPaws1C_Dec9

Here’s how I made these ornaments:

  • die-cut the ornaments and ornament tops with some silver and rose gold card stock.  Since I needed 6 ornaments, I had to die-cut it a few times.
  • die-cut the acetate sheets using the outer ornament die.  Adhere the same with liquid glue.
  • add foam adhesive to create the shaker well.
  • use some chunky glitter as the shaker element.  Adhere the other piece to close the shaker.
NND_DecktheHallsInkyPaws1A_Dec9
  • die-cut the words “merry” and “bright” with some rose gold card stock.  Adhere these words on the ornaments with liquid glue.
  • adhere the ornament tops using liquid glue.  Don’t forget to also adhere the ornament tops on the back side.
  • use some silver ribbon to the ornament to hang them on the tree.
  • decorate the Christmas tree!

For Day 3, we are showcasing the Christmas Nap Stamp Set + Coordinating Dies with the Newton’s Gift Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies.

I started by stamping my images on some X-Press It Blending Card and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Next, I ink-blended some Bristol Smooth white card stock and covered the bottom part with masking tape. I used the Starfield Stencil and Antique Linen Distress oxide ink with my blending brush. I removed the masking tape and lightly ink-blended the same color at the bottom of the panel. I adhered this on some A2-size white notecard.

I added the focal image on the card with foam adhesive for more dimension. I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink on a strip of red card stock. I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set with the heating tool, adhering the sentiment with liquid glue. Here’s another look:

My next project was also stamped on some X-Press It blending card and die-cut with the coordinating die. I also die-cut the tag using the Fancy Edges Tag Die Set with the new Canine Christmas Paper Pad and some Neenah solar white card stock, adhering them with liquid glue.

The focal image was foam-mounted onto the tag for added dimension.
