Ornament Gift

Hi, it's Joy this morning showing you what I did for the Classy Cards 'n Such challenge.  This week it is ornaments, any color, shape or style - 3D project, scrapbook page or card!  The Classy Cards 'n Such online store has so many great stamps sets to chose from for this challenge!  I used the Noel Christmas Ornaments by JustRite.

The white card stock was embossed and lightly rubbed with a Mini Ink Blending Tool and some distress ink. The ornament by JustRite called Noel Christmas Ornaments was stamped, die cut and stamped with Merry Christmas from Sweet 'n Sassy's Christmas Joy. I lightly attached it to some designer paper by BoBunny called Candy Cane Lane Collection and attached to the inside of the card. I used a larger ornament die to cut out the front of the white card stock. The back of the ornament was stamped with the To: in the Noel Christmas Ornaments set and I signed my name and year. The ornament can be pulled off and put on a tree.

Now, it's your turn to show us what you would do with Classy Card 'n Such's Ornaments Challenge. We would love to see what you would do with this challenge. Just go to Classy Cards 'n Such Blogspot.com and look at the details for the challenge. Be sure to check out what the other design team members did. Then link your project there or here.

Trim The Tree

Hello, Diane with you today. This week our challenge is all about ornaments.  There are so many beautiful ornament dies to choose from.  Trust me, I know as I own several and what a hard choice to decide which one I wanted to use.

I ended up choosing this beautiful and intricate Memory Box Corby Ornament.  It was cut from a coordinations green glitter paper.  I cut it a second time using red for the cardinal.

This ornament die has a separate back you can purchase
if interested, Memory Box Drop Ornament.  It fits perfectly for the back layer.  I used Pearlized Esse White Metallic paper for the ornament backing.

The ornament was attached to an Impression Obsession Pine Branch.  I added a Snow Marker to the branch.
As you can see, I got a little carried away with the snow!

The snowflake paper behind the ornament was cut using a die from Sue Wilson Greek Island Collection Kefalonia.
I know it is difficult to see in the photo, but this was then embossed with Quilt Blocks by Darice.

I added an embossed under panel on red card stock
and a pretty red bow to finish it off.

Thank you for visiting with me today!

Shimmering Christmas

Hello!  Diana here today.

I made a Christmas card for this week's Ornament Challenge.  I started with a white stitched rectangle base made with MFT Blueprints 13 and then smooshed with acetate two different greens in the corner:  Evergreen Bough and Mowed Lawn.  I then die-cut Memory Box Loopy Loop Wreath out of glittered red card stock and  Memory Box Cabrini ornament out of white card stock.  I filled in the Cabrini ornament with die cuts out of Shimmer Sheetz Purple Iris and Peridot Gemstone which is really hard to photograph!  :)  

For my final touch, I stamped Merry Christmas (from Sweet 'n Sassy Christmas Joy) and die cut it out with a sweet little curved banner from Sweet 'n Sassy Banner dies set and popped it up with small Joy! foam pads in the bottom corner.

Hope you can play along!

Good Morning! It is Shirley posting today.  I have made a card for the Ornament challenge for this week.   I just received a new Sue Wilson die and I was eager to make a card with it, so you will see what I have created with it.

So what do you think?   I was very pleased with it.  The Joy was cut using the Sue Wilson  Joy - Festive Collection.   It has two dies in it.  One is like the one on my card and the other one is really fancy.   I used gold card stock and silver foil from the Foil Paper - Textured Patterns 1.

The silver foil pine branches were cut using the Impression Obsession Pine Branch die.   The Cabrini ornament is a Memory Box die.  

I layered my white card base with a layer of gold card stock.  The next layer was embossed using the Dots embossing folder. I made the bow with the Memory Box Precious Hearts die.    I used a silver rhinestone in the center of the bow.  I used Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive to attach the die cuts to the dotted layer.

Be sure and join us for this challenge.  We love seeing your beautiful cards.
