Die-Versions Christmas Gift Set

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! Can you believe Christmas is less than a week away??!! Yipes!! It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions blog and I have a Christmas project to share with you using several Die-Versions dies.


I love making ornaments using Die-Versions dies cut with vinyl. For this ornament and card set, I used Alcohol Inks for the base. I put together a quick tutorial on how to stamp the ornament.


I started with a white ornament, Alcohol inks in Botanical and Poppyfield, a stamping tool and pieces of felt.


Squirt random drops of the inks across the felt and then you just start stamping on the ornament.


Keep stamping and building up layers until you achieve your desired look.



This is what it looked like when the entire ornament was covered. Gorgeous, isn't it??!


I had the hardest time photographing the ornament so I apologize for the light glares. I used the Whispers Regal Reindeer die (not currently in stock). Christmas is from the Compliments Holiday 1 set. Whispers Holly Branches (not currently in stock) were added under the poinsettia from Wild Orchid Crafts. The beautiful ribbon is Pure Love from DL.ART's Valentine Bundle.


I used the same dies for the card, and the same technique for the background, using Ranger Specialty Stamping Paper for the Alcohol Inks. The Regal Reindeer die was covered in Shabby White Frantage.


I had so much fun with the technique, I made another ornament using the Whispers Delicate Deer die (not currently in stock).

Wow, these are just beautiful Lisa! The process of the ornament reminds me of our poinsettia bush we had in Florida. So full of poinsettia flowers red flowing into red with little yellow and green centers here and there.
