Monochrome Ornaments

 My friend lent me her set of Pinkfresh Studio Ornaments - simply wonderful that it has the accompanying stencil and die. I decided to go with a monochrome gold/creme set. I used Platinum embossing on cream card, and stencilled in shades of cream/gold adding a little Delicata Gold here and there.

As wonderful as it would be to put them all on one card, I decided to see how many cards I could get out with one set of ornaments.  Turns out I got 5! Yippee!

For the first design, I used 3 ornaments on the card varying the shapes and sizes to get a good balance. I can't remember who gave the great tip of scoring the edges of your top card but thank you. A extra touch for a CAS card.

I also painted in parts with Delicata gold refill ink.

For the second design I used the positive and negative dies of an arch.

For the negative cut, I embossed the card with a linen embossing folder to give a little texture.

For the last lonely ornament, I was wondering how I could use it. Such a particular shape and not that big.  But then I remembered this wonderul star embossing folder! Gives it that extra impact.  And I just love these dies of tag/labels that also have a matching embossing folder to give them extra detail.

Noel Robin

When I spotted the Penny Black Immense Noel, I knew it would be perfect to put a focal image in the "O". This is my first card with it. I used the little robin from the Jolly Critters.

I made a second one and added some sparkle "snow" to the top of the Noel.

Which do you prefer?
