Tutorial Thursday: Christmas ornament card


Happy Thursday everyone!  It's Mary J here and today I am going to show you a quick tute on creating 3D Christmas ornaments for a card.  Now this is easy peasy, but my friends always think my cards using this technique is really impressive - and I like to impress!  ;)

So first off, here is the finished article...



And here's how I made those ornaments...


  1. I selected three different but co-ordinating papers but you can use any combination you like and I die cut one each of the third smallest die in the Stitched Nested Circles die set and two each of the second smallest die in the set
  2. I then used my score board and scorer to fold each circle in half
  3. Using three different papers for each, I glued them together to create three ornaments as shown above
  4. Lastly, I glue a piece of twine down the middle of the backs of the three ornaments
To finish off the card, I positioned the three ornaments onto a piece of white cardstock, using glue at the back of the ornaments and cellotape on the back of the card to secure the twine.  I simply topped the ornaments off with some Doodlebug gems for a bit of bling, but little bows would look good too.
You can also make these into tree ornaments simply by doubling up the number of die cuts and gluing them to create a full ball - I'm going to give this a go myself!

Here's a photo showing it from a different so you can see a bit more of the depth...



I think you'll agree that really was easy peasy and I hope you give it a go!

That's it from me today but stop by again to get your daily dose of La-La Land Crafts inspiration - ta ta for now!

Tutorial Thursday: Masking with Dies

Hello! Happy Thursday to you all..

Joy here bringing you another Tutorial Thursday..

This week I am sharing a Halloween card with you all and using masking with dies..


Using some masking paper, I trimmed a piece down to measure slightly smaller then a standard size 
4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch card, I die cut the Stitched Circle out of the trimmed piece of masking paper and taking another piece of masking paper, I die cut the Scary Tree, keeping both negative and positive pieces to use on the card...


Using the negative piece of masking with the die cut circle, place onto a trimmed piece of white card stock of the same size..


Once the masking paper is adhered down to the white card stock, start to apply distress inks to create a moon feature..


Removing this masking paper, I then added the die cut Scary Tree, using the negative die cut of the tree, applying black soot ink..


Once this has had time to dry, this is where the positive pieces come into play, applying directly back over the inked sections, then start to apply different coloured distress inks to get the spooky sky scene..


Here is another look of the card, I also die cut some Eerie Bats and a sentiment from Egyptian Mummy Luka to add just a little more addition to the card..


I hope you take your dies out and see what scenes you can create using masking..

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hugs
