Christmas

Hello!!

Crafter's Companion has a new Christmas die release!! Just gorgeous dies and i have two projects to share with you!

The first is from the Die'sire Prestige Christams Only Words Collection! This die is an ornament with the word Christmas inside. I decided it would make a great ornament!! And its super easy and can be dressed up however you want!!

I started by die cutting the ornament from some Crafter's Companion's Shimmering Cardstock, Black Pearl. Then i used some liquid adhesive to adhere the ornament to some Green Envy Shimmering Cardstock. When it's dry, i just used some scissors and cut really close to the black ornament!

Next i just trimmed out the green card stock from the top to make the opening and then threaded some green twine yarn through it.

Then to dress up my ornament i added some very light green pearls and then used a Liquid Pearl to add tiny dots above and below the Christmas sentiment. The dots are already embossed from the die, so adding the Liquid Pearl is super easy!!

My next project features the Season's Greetings die from Die'sire Classiques Christmas Only Words Collection.  I started by making a card from Crafter's Companion Watercolor Cardstock.  From the front of the card i die cut the Season's Greetings.

With the die cut sentiment i used Spectrum Aqua markers and some water to color the sentiment Purple. For the snowflakes on the die i color them with the Navy marker.

For the background i used Aquamarine marker to watercolor the card base (with cut out). once it was dry adhered some black cardstock to the BACK of the front card. So now you can see black card stock through the shaped hole form the sentiment die cut.

Next i adhered the purple sentiment die cut to the black card stock, it fits into the whole i cut earlier. Then i added some sequins to the background and the snowflakes. For a little sparkle i added tiny dots of glitter glue.

Make sure you stop by Crafter's Companion to see all the other dies in these two collection!! Thanks for stopping by!!
