Happy Weekend! Hope you are enjoying it. I was able to get some stamping in this weekend – in between a few chores.
I got a chance to play with my Big Shot a bit. I have to tell you – it is always out – I never put it away. I love this die cutting machine. It is easy to use and Stampin' Up! carries a great selection of supplies for it. They even carry exclusive dies and supplies to Stampin' Up! Very cool.
Today I wanted to show you some items I created using the Snowflake #2 original die – #113460 – $15.95 – it is on page #202 of the Current SU Idea Book & Catalog.
This first picture is an ornament I created using the Snowflake #2 die, the Birds & Blooms Sizzlits die – #113495 – $19.95, & the Little Leaves Sizzlit die – #114511 – $4.95. All of these can be found in the current SU Idea Book & Catalog.
I layered 2 snowflakes on top of each other – just remember to offset them a bit so they both show. I held them together with a mini glue dot.
I cut my Little Leaves – I just snipped off the 2 leaves that branched out so that I could layer them on top of the center of the snowflake just the way I wanted them.
I added a little Whisper White ink using a sponge to the bird before attaching it to the center of the snowflake. (Note: I used mini glue dots to adhere all the parts together)
With your Basic Black Stampin' Write marker – make the dot for the Birds eye. There is an impression already there I just like how the black dot shows up better.
I tied a Whisper White taffeta ribbon into a bow and adhered it to the top then attached a white floss string to hang your ornament and you are done!
What do you think? I am going to create a few of these to attach to family and friends Holiday Gifts. It will be a little extra gift for them to hang on their tree! I have written the date on the back – I like having the dates on my ornaments so that each year when we hang them it helps us remember where and when we got them!
What do you think of this idea? Stay tuned to see how I changed it up a bit to create a different ornament and even made one into a card!
Happy Stamping ~
