Vintage Ornaments

lg ornament hollyedge blk

I’m shooting for December 4th to have ALL my Christmas cards done! Think I’ll make it? 32 days left till Christmas! (I know, I know…don’t remind you!)

Helping to celebrate the 300th Technique Challenge on Splitcoast, which by the way is a wealth of knowledge…so many I need to go back and do them again as I enjoyed them the first time! We were to go through the list and pick at least 2 techniques…the more the merrier!

Here’s another sneak peek at the new
Ornaments set from
Our Daily Bread designs.

My techniques are #22 Dry Embossing, #263 Very Vintage, and #265 Childhood Memeories. (lol, there could be more, but 300 is a lot to look through!)

After stamping and coloring (and die cutting), I used my small stylus and a foam pad to outline the poinsettia on the front side…then flipped it to the back side, outlined it again, and finally using my large stylus rounded out the petals. It’s a lot easier to see in person.

If you’re ever stumped on what to do, take a look through the techniques! You’re bound to find something that tickles your fancy!!

stamp: ornaments- our daily bread designs (dec 1st)
ink: memento tuxedo black, ranger distress broken china, stormy sky
paper: georgia pacific white, basic grey jovial, bazzill
other: copics, spellbinders, sakura white gel pen, spica gold gel pen, cuttlebug/ef, gold embroidery floss, martha stewart holly punch, stylus, foam dimensionals

Now, I need to go tally up and see how close I am! Winking smile

Thanks for stopping!

Hi Dawn~

What a beautiful card. 32 days? I'm ok on cards...but haven't picked up one gift yet!

This is so elegant. To think that I only dry embossed with a stylus until about 4 months ago...I didn't know there was another way! LOL

He IS Able,
