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.]

Poinsettia-Wood-Ornament-2

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. :)]

Christmas Ornament Series for the Tree

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

Today, I am starting a new Christmas series. Every Friday until Christmas, I will have a new Holiday Ornament for your tree. The base medium for each ornament will be the same wooden disks as used in my posts, Make & Take at “Junkie Fest 2018” and Holiday Fishes for the Tree. Wooden disks make a great ornament “canvas”  for stamping on directly and for adhering stamped cut-outs. I LOVE stamping with them!

To start this series off … I have 2 ornaments for you!

Figure-Skates-Christmas-Ornament

Stamps to make this ornament: NEW – Figure Skates Multi-Step Clear Stamps, Holly & Mistletoe Multi-Step Clear Stamps, and Winter Cardinal Multi-Step Clear Stamps (pine branch) from Kitchen Sink Stamps.

For this ornament, I first stamped the ice skates and holly with berries on, Solar White Classic Crest from Neenahafter cutting them with the coordinating KSS SVG cut files. The separate pieces make it easy to loosely position the skates and holly on the wood disk to determine where the pine branch would look best.

  1. Stamp the pine branch (using Palette ink) directly onto the wood disk. Coat pine cones with a Wink of Stella Clear Pen (from Zig).
  2. Adhere the ice skates with pop dots. Coat the ice skate blades with a Wink of Stella Clear Pen.
  3. Adhere holly berries area directly to the skates and holly leaves to the wood disk with pop dots. Coat the holly berries & leaves with a Wink of Stella Clear Pen.

Color Recipes for these stamp sets:

Figure Skates

Holly & Mistletoe

Winter Cardinal (pine branch)

  • Pine Branch on wood disk (Palette Inks)
    • Step # 4c – Burnt Umber
    • Step # 2c – Jardin Moss
    • Step # 1c – Landscape
    • Step # 3c – Burnt Sienna

Snowy-Cabin-ornament

Stamps to make this ornament: Snowy Cabin Multi-Step Clear Stamps, Snowy Pine Trees Multi-Step Clear StampsPine Trees Multi-Step Clear StampsSnowmen Multi-Step Clear Stampsand Cabin by the Lake Multi-Step Clear Stamps (chimney smoke) from Kitchen Sink Stamps.

I used the same “game plan” for this ornament as the figure skates ornament above. Using Solar White Classic Crest from Neenah and the coordinating KSS SVG cut files, 

  • Cut out:
    • a small snowman with his top hat on 
    • small pine tree
    • a snowy cabin
    • snow mounds
    • a puff of smoke (or cloud) from Cabin by the Lake.
  • Stamp all cutouts following color recipes from the links below. 
  • Loosely position the cabin and small pine tree on the wood disk to determine where the snowy pine trees will look best behind the cabin.
  • Stamp the “background” snowy pines (Palette ink) directly on the wood disk. Add glitter in the “snow” areas with a Wink of Stella Clear Pen (from Zig).

Next assembling cutout & stamped layers:

  1. Add the snowy cabin with pop dots and covered the roof with a Wink of Stella Clear Pen. [NOTE: I squeezed a bit too hard when using the Wink of Stella pen over the snowy roof and the glitter is thicker than in other places where used on this ornament, therefore making the roof look gray in the photo. :(]
  2. Small Pine Tree: Using pop dots where the small pine overlapped the snowy cabin and double stacked pop dots where the pine tree (left of the cabin) will attach to the pine disk. Add Wink of Stella Clear Pen to tops of branches.
  3. Adhere left side of snow mound directly to the right of the pine tree and a pop dot (right side past pine tree) where snow mound is over the cabin. Coat snow mound with Wink of Stella Clear Pen.
  4. Add the snowman at the bottom directly to snow mound and with a pop dot at the snowman’s middle and head to the cabin behind. Coat snow only of the snowman with Wink of Stella Clear Pen
  5. Lastly, slide the smoke cloud behind the cabin and trim off the bottom if necessary. Add pop dots and side smoke under the chimney.

Got Snowzilla?

I hope everyone on the East coast is staying safe and has a chance to enjoy all the snow that Storm Jonas left behind.

I love looking at the photos people have shared from the storm, especially the overnight time-lapse videos showing the massive amount of snow that was dropped this past weekend! AMAZING!

For right now, this is the closest I am going to get to play in the snow!

After a week of peeks, it is time to unveil what new stamps I have cooked up for you. My first card includes 4 out of the 6 new stamp sets, to create a serene winter scene. 

Snowmen aren’t just for Christmas… right? The snowy pine trees have grown as a cluster, but shrank in their size – LOL … perfect for adding snowy pine trees off on the horizon. The little skier can be found in the stamp set,

Multi-Step Snowy Cabin Clear Stamps.

Peaceful Greetings from Kitchen Sink Stamps

I always get super excited when I design a stamp set that has multiple purposes …

like this set Multi-Step Rolling Hills Clear Stamps. It can be used to create snowy slopes or a grassy hillside.

But wait…there’s more!

By using step #3 again as an “embellishment” (VersaMark and red glittery embossing powder)… now those rolling green hills have a patch of poppies!  YaHooo!
