Christmas Gleaming/Christmas Ornaments

Snow Front Gleaming Ornaments


Snow Front ornaments

Cabin ornament

While I had the Gleaming Ornament punches (retiring)! on my craft table, I decided to pair them with the stamp set Snow Front to make these winter-themed Christmas ornaments.

Snow Front is one of my favorite winter sets as it perfectly depicts my surroundings in the mountains of Southern Colorado.

  1. Punch a large and small ornament out of Shimmery White card stock using the Gleaming Ornament punches.  Sponge along the edges if desired.  Attach them together..
  2.  Stamp deer, cabin, trees, and landscape on the ornaments, so the design is continuous on each ornament.
  3.  Punch large and small ornaments out of coordinating card stock using the Gleaming Ornament punches.  Attach to the back of each ornament, off-setting them slightly.
  4. Stamp snow on card front.  Stamp greeting from Festive Post (retiring)!  I used the Stamparatus.  Attach to mat.  Attach to card base.
  5.  Attach ornaments using Dimensionals to pop them up.  Add baker's twine or cording bows using Glue Dots.  Attach rhinestones  to complete.

Tie-Dye Christmas Ornaments

Because of the flurry of Christmas card making over the past several days, my crafting table is full of stuff; stamps, ink, ribbon, glimmer dots....

I'm sure you can relate!

One of the items I put to the side was the paper towel that I used to blot watercolors from a few of my projects.  The colors were so vibrant and pretty, and I knew I wanted to use the paper towel to create tie-dyed Christmas ornaments.

This is a simple project and it's a great way to recycle and reuse.

(you can see my other paper towel background pieces here)

        1. Smooth out the paper towel and separate the plys.  You will be able to make double the ornaments using both plys.
        2. Attach paper towel to card stock back ground using Stampin' Seal, Tombow Glue or the like.  By securing the paper towel to a card stock background, you will be able to easily punch out the ornaments or trim it down for other projects.
        3. Punch ornaments using Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack.
        4. Attach to Shimmery White card front using Dimensionals to pop them up.
        5.  Stamp greeting from Festive Post.  I used the Stamparatus.
        6. Attach to mat, then to card base.
        7. For these cards, I used retired baker's twine and enamel dots from my stash to complete.

Christmas Gleaming Ornaments and Shimmer Paint

I created a series of cards featuring Christmas Gleaming stamp set and Gleaming Ornaments Punches (both are retiring on January 4, 2021) using Frost White Shimmer Paint, combined with different inks.

The color combo possibilities are endless!

Bermuda Bay Rich RazzleberryShimmer Paint with Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry, Mossy Meadow, Silver Foil accents

Rich razzleberry bermuda bayShimmer Paint with Rich Razzleberry and Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple, Silver Foil accents

This technique is easy to do and provides a pretty shimmer to your creations.

Here's how:

  1. Shake the bottle of Frost White Shimmer Paint to mix, then tip the bottle over so some of the paint settles in the lid.  Remove the lid, and pick up some of the paint on a sponge dauber.  Dab the paint on the ornaments found in Christmas Gleaming and stamp on card front.  For these cards, I used Glossy White card stock from my stash, but Whisper White or Shimmer White card stock will work as well.  Allow a few seconds for the paint to dry.
  2. With a sponge brayer or sponge, add color to the ornaments.  Make it as dark as you want by adding more color.  Buff with a paper towel.  The shimmer design on the ornaments will stand out.
  3. Punch ornaments out using coordinating Gleaming Ornaments punches. 
  4. Stamp holly leaf image on card front.  Attach ornaments using Dimensionals to pop them up.
  5.  Stamp greeting from Christmas Gleaming or Festive Post.  I used the Stamparatus.
  6. Attach to card stock or silver foil mat.  Attach to card base.  Attach silver cording or ribbon to ornaments using Glue Dots to complete.
