Elegant Ornaments 56

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, September 19, 2010 @ 7:00 PM | , ,




Hi Friends! Hope you all had a great weekend! I enjoyed a Sunday full of football games, a little bit different than my hubby ;) I played around in my "studio" (aka kitchen) & made a Christmas card for this week's JustRite Friday's Challenge:

Sharon challenged us to ink up our JustRite stamps using the following color combination dark red, ivory & black, with the added twist of creating our own handmade embellishment. How fun!

I inked up the elegant sentiment from Christmas Nested Sentiments & Verse with VersaMark ink, embossed with silver embossing powder then used a S5-025 Labels Seventeen die template to cut/emboss the image. I love the beautiful scripty font & it fits perfectly inside the elegant frame.

As for the homemade embellishments, I pulled out the S4-283 2010 Heirloom Ornaments die templates used various sizes to cut/emboss F-001 Red Premium Craft Foil then for a lil' dimension & character, I embossed them using the I2-1014 Fleur De Lis Impressibilites® template. To reveal the metal, I lightly sanded off away some color. If you are interested in referring to a tutorial I wrote on this process, please feel free to click HERE.

That's all for today! Thank so much for looking!

Supplies Used: Stamps: JustRite Christmas Nested Sentiments & Verse Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S5-025 Labels Seventeen, S4-283 2010 Heirloom Ornaments, I2-1014 Fleur De Lis Impressibilites®, GC-001 Grand Calibur
