Glittered Ornament

Hello again, Blogland! I hope you're looking forward to some fun this weekend. I thought I might pop in here again quickly to share another card I made recently. This one uses Vintage Ornaments and Bells & Boughs together. I love that they're just the right scale to coordinate perfectly.

I started by die cutting and stamping my ornament. Then I stamped the stripe detail with a glue pad and added super fine glitter. I set that aside to set up while I die cut my white layer (using the wine tag die) and stamped it with the pine boughs and sentiment. That was adhered to a Pure Poppy layer that had been impressed with the Diagonal Stripes impression plate (I couldn't really capture that detail in my photo, but I promise it's there). I adhered the ornament over the pine boughs and added a small silk bow (ribbon was colored with a Copic).

A simple card, but I hope you enjoyed it. Have a wonderful weekend and I'll be back on Monday with a December countdown post!

Dear Lizzie,

I love this card but there is something that I just can't understand. How on earth did you stamp the boughs going in the directions that they are going? It looks like you've done some "mirror imaging" with your bough stamp. I know that I can't do that with mine!!!! It almost looks as though you've used a digital stamp? Did you?!?!?

Hi, Diana! I just used all three of the bough images in the set - no digital stamping here. You're probably seeing the two outline images. One is larger than the other, but they're relatively similar. Hope that helps!

Diana K said...

Oops! I can't believe I did that. I only saw two bough images in my set, but I've now found the third. So embarrassed. And here I was accusing you of having access to secret digital stamps!

No worries! Glad to help. :)
