Christmas Ornament Series – week 9

6 Weeks ‘Til Christmas – Holiday Ornament Countdown with Kitchen Sink Stamps continues!

🎶 … Thumpety thump, thump, thumpity thump, thump, look at Frosty go.
Thumpety thump, thump, thumpity thump, thump, over the hills of snow. 🎶

This week’s ornament is a Frosty SnowmanInvisable-Snowman-Ornament

Stamps to make this ornament: Invisible Snowman Multi-Step Clear Stamps, Holly & Mistletoe Multi-Step Clear Stamps, and Owl & Autumn Moon Multi Step  Clear Stamps (for snowman’s face) from Kitchen Sink Stamps.Invisable-Snowman-Ornament-2

Using Solar White Classic Crest from Neenah and the coordinating KSS SVG cut files, 

  • Cut out:
  • Stamp all cutouts following color recipes from the links below. 
  • Brush Clear – Wink of Stella to hat band, red stripes in the scarf, carrot nose, and holly and berries.
  • Stamp snowman’s face directly on the wood disk. I use Step #1 of the moon from Owl & Autumn Moon, but any 2″ circle will work. 
    • I first stamped the snowman’s face with Frost White (Color Box).
    • Then added Kaleidoscope clear embossing powder (Stampedous).
    • Then stamp coal mouth with Onyx Black (VersaFine).
  • Adhere top hat, scarf, eyes, nose, pipe, and holly with pop dots.
    • TIP: Once the scarf and top hat were in place, I glued wooden toothpicks to the back of the top hat and scar that extends beyond the wood disk. The toothpicks give these pieces extra support. (see photo below)

Christmas Ornament Series – Two 4 week 7

8 Weeks ‘Til Christmas – Holiday Ornament Countdown with Kitchen Sink Stamps continues!

I have TWO ornaments for you this week.  My first ornament features Christmas Poinsettias and Candy Canes and the second is a festive snowman.

Poinsettia-Wood-Ornament-3

Stamps to make ornament #1: Poinsettia Multi-Step Clear Stamps, and Things 4 Ducky & Teddy Multi-Step Clear Stamps from Kitchen Sink Stamps.

Using Solar White Classic Crest from Neenah and the coordinating KSS SVG cut files, 

  • Cut out:
  • Stamp all cutouts following color recipes from the links below. 
  • Brush Clear – Wink of Stella to poinsettia flowers.
  • Adhere the large poinsettia (concentrate your adhesive in the center of the blossom leaving to sides without) on the wood disk to determine where it will look best depending on the unique shape of the wood disk. Then slide leave (with adhesive on the back) directly behind the poinsettia blossom.
  • Adhere the additional poinsettias, leaves and candy canes (see note below) with pop dots.

[Note reg. Candy Canes: I have been using black pop dots under most of my cut out images for my past ornaments, but used white for the candy canes. The white doesn’t show as much because of the candy canes being white and red. I adhered the two candy canes together first where I wanted them to cross/overlap each other. Then I added the pop dots (trimmed in stripes) to the back. You can see this a little in the angled photo below.]

Stamps to make ornament #2: Snowmen Multi-Step Clear Stamps, Snowy Cabin Multi Step Clear Stamps, and Holly & Mistletoe Multi-Step Clear Stamps from Kitchen Sink Stamps.

Snowman-Wood-Ornament

Using Solar White Classic Crest from Neenah and the coordinating KSS SVG cut files, 

  • Cut out:
    • A small Holly with Berries from Holly & Mistletoe
    • A large Top Hat from Snowmen
    • Stamp all cutouts following color recipes from the links below. 
  • Brush Clear – Wink of Stella to the Holly & Berries and the Top Hat’s hatband.
  • Stamp Directly on the wood disk – using a Misty (or another stamp platform).
    • Snowman from Snowmen
      • Step #1: Frost White – 2x’s (Color Box)
      • Step #2: Summer Sky (Memento)
      • Step #3: London Fog – stamp off 1x, repeat (Memento)
      • Face & Buttons: Onyx Black (VersaFine)
      • Nose: Mandarin Orange (Catherine Pooler)
      • Twig Arms – Dark Chocolate (Gina K)
    • Snow Mounds from Snowy Cabin
      • Step #1: Frost White – 2x’s (Color Box)
      • Step #2: VersaMark and Kaleidoscope embossing powder
    • Winter Tree from Snowy Cabin
      • First stamping: Espresso Truffle (Memento)
      • Stamp again: Warm Cocoa (Gina K) 
      • Brush Clear Wink of Stella to branches
  • Add Holly & Berries and Top Hat with pop dots.

[Note reg. Snowman’s Top Hat: As you can see from the photo below, I had originally stamped the top hat directly over the snowman on the wood disk. Normally this would work on paper, but due to the many layers of white ink to build up the snowman, I did not like the end results. So, I stamped another top hat and covered it over by adding it on top with pop dots. You can only see it when looking close at an angle. It reminds me of the Holly Hobbie layered paper crafts from my childhood. Anyway, a good fix for a mistake. :)]
