Lighted Luminaria

December 19, 2011 in ,
Lighted luminarias are very popular right now! They are really easy to make when you start with the Big Shot and the Fancy Favor Die.

After cutting out the Fancy Favor box I adhered a piece of torn Whisper White card stock to the bottom to make the snow. The "stamped" elements are actually from the Christmas Village Stamp Brush Set in My Digital Studio (the same stamp set I used for my blog header). I also punched out the circle window before assembling the box. The vellum window was stamped on with Versamark ink to look like snow was falling and Dazzling Details was added around the window. Inside my luminaria is a battery operated candle to make it flicker.

House in a Bulb!

December 17, 2011 in ,

There are so many things you can do with clear bulbs! Last year I used reinkers and dazzling diamonds glitter to make beautiful glittery bulbs for my Christmas tree. This year I decided to use a few of the left over bulbs to make some new ornaments - ones with circle inserts.
First you cut out a 2-1/2" circle from a Window Sheet, then stamp your choice of Christmas theme image onto the Window Sheet in Stazon Black. Then punch out a 2-1/2" circle of Big Shot Multipupose Adhesive Sheet and adhere to the back of the stamped window sheet. After peeling the cover off the adhesive now on the back of the Window sheet, sprinkle some glitter to make the image shine! Next pour a little glitter into the clear ornament and add some fake snow. Then roll up the stamped glittery image so that it will fit into the ornament's hole. After it's in the ornament it will pop back to a circle and it's like a ship in a bottle!

Star Ornaments

December 17, 2011 in ,

These acrylic stars were crying out for some extra love! I would have loved to use some White Stazon ink but I forgot to add that to my last order. So instead I pulled out the Versamark and pewter embossing powder. The Merry Christmas was stamped in Black Stazon on Vellum to make sure the ink did not smear when I was assembling the ornaments.

Stamps: Christmas greeting, Winter Post
Ink: Versamark, Black Stazon
Paper: Vellum
Accessories: Pewter Embossing Powder, Glue Dots, Old Olive Taffeta Ribbon, Star ornaments
