Salutations! All that glitters is NOT just gold, it is silver, and snow and glass too!
I had to make some tags for our annual Christmas Ornament Exchange party and could not resist Sunny Studio Stamps Holiday Style to fill the bill.
I started out by stamping the pine branch in VersaMark ink and sprinkling Ranger Silver Tinsel Embossing Powder on it and heat setting it. This was the first time I used it and just LOVE the look. Helpful Tip… Begin the heat setting/melting process from underneath the image, then finish up on top, the reason is, it gives the glitter pieces a chance to adhere and not get blown right off the paper. Same concept as when you use the thick embossing powders.
I hope you can see the sparkle of the “tinsel” it is really beautiful in real life. 🙂
Next I stamped the ornament, beginning with Close To My Heart Glacier ink for the base layer circle and stamping CTMH Lagoon, which has been stamped off once, as the shadow piece. It was way too dark to do without stamping it off first. I added a piece of silver jewelers thread to “hang” it from the branch. I popped up the ornament with a foam square, stamped “FROM” in Lagoon ink on the bottom, snipped off the top corners, added some matching blue baker’s twine and called it done.
I thought this would be a great project to submit for a Non-Traditional Holiday Colors challenge #273 going on at Color My Heart – Color Dare Challenge Blog, you can see all the great inspiration Here or even submit some inspiration of your own!
