Shimmery Heirloom Ornament Card

I can't tell you how excited I am to be posting my first project on the blog as part of the Creative Inspirations Paint DT! Already, I am having a blast playing with these fantastic paints and can't wait to share many more projects with you all in the future!

But now let's get to this week's project shall we?!

  • I used the Spellbinders "2010 Heirloom Ornament" dies to cut out the ornament after I stamped and embossed it with the matching JustRite "Merry and Bright" stamp set.

  • Next I colored in the ornament image with Garnet, Gold and Caramel.

  • I stamped the sentiment separately and punched it out with 1 1/4" punch and popped it up on the ornament.

  • Then I inked all the edges with Antiue Linen distress ink to make the edges stand out a little.

  • Finally, I painted a peach colored silk ribbon with the Garnet paint to match the ornament and attached it along with a few pearls as a finishing touch.

  • The label was cut with Spellbinders "Labels 8" die and stamped with Hero Arts "Pine Bough" stamp in Peeled Paint Distress ink.

  • The card base was a light green cardstock stamped with Hero Arts "Raindrop Background" in Peeled Paint Distress ink

  • The final touch before assembly was to use a fan brush to "white wash" over the background in Ivory to give it a fantastic pearly shine!

Here you can see the Creative Inspirations colors I used, from left to right they are; Garnet, Gold, Caramel and Ivory.

Finally, here, I hope you can see the shine! I know it's hard to see on the ornament because it is so intricate but you can really see the shimmer on the ribbon and on the background.

Hope you anjoyed today's project! Thanks for stopping by!
