Christmas in the Making, Ornaments

Christmas in the Making, Ornaments

The Holiday Catalog is finally live! Woohoo!!! Our local demonstrator group organizes a swap with each new catalog. I always enjoy participating in these and seeing what each person creates with their set. First, we select a stamp set then we create three different design from the set.  I selected the Christmas in the Making Stamp Set. This is my second of three designs that I call my Christmas in the Making, Ornaments.  Even though I kept it clean and simple (unlike my first design, you can check it out here) it still gives the 50’s vibe.  AND I didn’t have to color very much.  Woohoo!

TREE:  The card base starts again with Soft Sky layered with a “floor” in Smoky Slate with Faux Suede technique to add texture.  The Old Olive tree is from Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits Dies layered with a Soft Suede pot embossed with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I sponged the edges with Soft Suede to add another layer of texture.  Using mini glue dots I placed the Gold Mini Sequins Trims to the tree, zig-zagging back and forth.  [TIP:  Leave enough length so the trim curves slightly.]

Next, stamp the ornament from the girls hand (Christmas in the Making Stamp Set) onto Whisper White six times with Memento Black ink.  Then color them with Real Red and Old Olive, and punch with a 3/16″ circle punch.  Then place them with mini glue dots as well.  Finally, top the tree with a Glimmer Gold star also from the Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits Dies.

LADY:  She is stamped onto Whisper White with Memento Black ink.  Because I’m not into coloring I kept this one very simple.  I colored her with just Real Red, Old Olive and Soft Suede ink and a blender pen.  I also added a bit of sparkle with Wink of Stella on the bottom half of her skirt.  Super cute!  Then I fussy cut her and popped with Dimensionals.  I love her red shoes!

SENTIMENT:  I cut the sentiment apart and put the pieces back together so it would fit into an oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits.  It was stamped onto Whisper White with Memento Black in.

I hope you enjoyed today’s clean and simple design featuring the Christmas in the Making stamp set.  Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you come back to see my final design.
