Welcome Creatives! ! It is a celebration as today is my tenth release of die cuts (ephemera)!
This is part of my newest collection, called a Merry Little Christmas. Such an exciting day…
This is the new collection in the shop now! Wanting to share some easy creative ideas so of course, I included the new Merry Little Christmas collection. There are five die cuts in this ephemera collection that is a little smaller than the other collections (3x3inches) because I wanted them to be used as tags. Let’s get started:
All of the projects included one die cut from the set you can exchange it with one of the others in the set or stamp your own.
1.) A simple card – a little washi, a little Plaid paint to color the snowflakes and a little Glitterific for the sparkle.
2.) The sitting elf ornament is the elf backed with chipboard and a couple of those painted snowflakes on little twine.
3.) I painted this blank little nutcracker soldier with the same paints and glitter. Haning the tag with the twine.
Sometimes the most special gifts are handmade, with a little paint you can customize your gifts to the person or situation.
5.) Here I hand painted this box to suit my theme, you can paint or wrap your boxes in colors that compliment or theme or perhaps create different colors for each person. (Plaid paints used- Apple Barrel Summer Blue and Folk Art Artist Pigment Alizarin Crimson)
6.) Each year I create ornaments for the family, I have been loving glitter so it seemed fitting that this year’s ornament would have glitter. To create this look paint half of the ornament in blue and the top half in red Cover the entire ornament once dry with Glitterific. If you haven’t used this it is so much easier than glitter- it is a gel-like substance filled with different sizes of glitter. Simply squeeze it out of the bottle and spread it with a paintbrush or your finger. Glitter tends to get stuck in brushes so I prefer to use my finger, which makes for easier cleanup.
(The bear and the elf would also make great finger puppets too!)
