Star Ornament

This Christmas ornament is made using the Star Framelits and the stamp set "Bright & Beautiful".  It is very easy to make and the effect is stunning!








There are 8 layers to this ornament, all put together using dimensionals.
The first think I did was emboss using gold embossing powder on Very Vanilla cardstock, 2 each of the star stamps.  These were die cut using the Star Framelits.  In addition, I die cut the largest of the Star Framelits using Gold cardstock.
Then I built 2 halfs of the ornament - a large gold star, a medium one, a smaller one, and the tiny middle one - by adhering them together with dimensionals.  You will end up with 2 halves of the ornament.
Before adhering them together, I adhered some gold stretch cord to the back of one of the halves.  This will be the ornament hanger.
Now I adhered the 2 halves of the ornament together, and walla you have an ornament!  To finish the ornament I put a large pearl in the middle

Stamp: Bright & Beautiful
Ink:  Versa Mark
Papers: Very Vanilla, Gold cardstock
Accessories: Star Framelits, Gold embossing powder, stretch cord (non SU), dimensionals.

Star Birthday Cards - a CASE

These cards are a CASE from a CASE I saw on Pinterest.  The person that I CASED the card from had CASED the card from the SU catalogue on Page 135.  I can't say that I noticed the card in the catalogue before now.  I guess I was just too busy looking at everything else.  Anyway, when I saw the cards on Pinterest, my interest was piqued, and I just had to make some of these cards.  Wendy Cranfield made an excellent video on You Tube here and I followed her instructions to make these cards.  Obviously you will also need the Star Framelits.

These are the 3 I made using the Star Framelits.  They were actually very easy to make.

The base card here is Strawberry Slush, with All Abloom DSP as well as Silver Glimmer paper.
The sentiment is from Memorable Moments, and I used Itty Bitty framelits to die cut them.  Since I didn't have any buttons that matched the card stock, I used Bitty Buttons with a piece of Strawberry Slush punched with an Itty Bitty flower punchie under neath it.

The lighting in this picture is not the greatest, but I wanted to show you how the card opened to become a stand alone card.,

Here the base card is Daffodil Delight with the top layer embossed with the Decorative Dots embossing folder.

Island Indigo is used as the base here.  also, I put the sentiment on the opposite side of the front of the card (mainly because I die cut it backwards)

An Open Heart - Thank You

What a beautiful day today, the best day we've seem in a long time.  I must admit I took a break from making Christmas cards, and made this Thank You card instead.





The images were coloured with blendabilities.  The background was stamped using Chocolate Chip ink.
After colouring the bird, I cut it out and placed it on the greenery using dimensionals.
