It’s the beginning of a new week, so that means Leonie and I have another instalment of Monday Makes for you. This week we’re using the Bright and Beautiful stamp set and the Star Framelits. Don’t forget to pop over to Leonie’s site to see what she has to share. I know it will be stunning and a little birdie may have told me there’s a box involved.
My first share is a double time stamping Christmas card using the medium-sized star on the outside and the small star on the inside and the envelope:
This is quite an easy technique – you adhere the 2 Whisper White pieces together and stamp on top of both then pull them apart and mat them on whatever colour you like. I’ve just adhered some Whisper White inside the card too.
Now my second share is a card you could easily give a man for Christmas:
I’ve stamped with VersaMark and embossed with White Emboss Powder and used a thread from the Burlap Ribbon behind the star and mounted it on Dimensionals. The middle of the star has a Snowflake from the Frosted Sequins pack with a Silver Sequin in the centre and on either side of the sentiment which has been cut with the Apothecary Accents Framelit Dies and mounted on Dimensionals.
My third card uses the sentiment from the set plus the small star for the envelope
The inside view
I’ve used the Star Framelits to cut a star out in the Silver Glimmer Paper with the backing being the Silver Fancy Foil Vellum. I’ve cut a larger star out of the Whisper White and tied a bow with the Silver 1/8″ Ribbon on top. I’ve used the other sentiment from the set for the inside of the card.
My next share is an ornament you could hang on your tree, on a wall or window, anywhere really and uses the non-traditional Christmas colours of Night of Navy and Silver and the Star Framelits:
I’ve stamped on the Night of Navy with VersaMark and embossed with Silver Emboss Powder. I’ve also stamped on Whisper White with VersaMark and embossed with Silver. I’ve cut all the stars out with the Star Framelits. All except the largest star are scored using the track of my Stampin’ Trimmer and my Bone Folder and then I have burnished the score lines. The centres of the stars have hot glue behind them. You could also use fun foam or a number of Dimensionals to give you the height needed. The Silver 1/8″ Ribbon is adhered to the back of the largest star and acts as the hanger.
My last projects today is another decoration and you can choose to stand it or hang it depending on your space:
This decoration is made my stamping with VersaMark 4 times on Early Espresso and then using White Emboss Powder. Cut the 4 stars out using the Star Framelit. Score each Star down the middle and fold. Adhere each star together and place the ribbon on top in the form of a bow or hanger or both depending on what you want.
