Welcome to Day 5 of Papertrey Ink's September holiday release countdown. Today we are featuring two beautiful ornament stamp sets, Vintage Ornaments II by Dawn McVey, and What the Doodle: Ornament by Betsy Veldman. In addition, Erin Lincoln has come up with a Stitched Ornament Die collection for making beautiful 3D felt ornaments. I'm excited to share with you what I came up with!
All of the new products will be available at 10 pm ET on September 15 in the Papertrey Ink store.
For this first project, I've used Vintage Ornaments II. I've fallen pretty hard for these ornaments! Not only have I enjoyed stamping with them, but I'm now determined to find some of these for my ornament collection! The set is designed with both line art and solid images, so you can color with your favorite coloring medium or "color" with the solid images. I chose the latter for this card.
I found some gorgeous inspiration pieces while browsing Pinterest. One of my favorites is this one. And this vintage Christmas card is another:
Stamps: Vintage Ornaments II, Holiday Greens
Dies: Vintage Ornaments II
Ink: Ocean Tides, Limeade Ice, Scarlet Jewel, Hibiscus Burst, Harvest Gold, Ripe Avocado, True Black
Paper: watercolor paper, Stamper's Select White card stock
Other: silver sequins, white pigment ink
Next is What the Doodle: Ornament. I have so many ideas for this set, and can't wait to spend more time with it! For today, I stamped in black on watercolor paper, heat embossed and watercolored with Papertrey re-inkers. I just love the elegance of these images, and the doodle style gives it a bit of a playfulness as well.
Stamps: What the Doodle: Ornament, Holiday Swoosh
Ink: Pure Poppy, Hibiscus Burst, Green Parakeet, New Leaf, Aqua Mist, Ocean Tides; Versafine Onyx Black
Paper: watercolor paper, Ocean Tides and Smokey Shadow card stock
Other: white linen thread, white and clear embossing powder
My last project for today is a stitched ornament. I combined the Stitched Ornaments: Beaded die and the Stitched Ornaments: Classics dies.
One of the fun things about these is that you can get different looks depending on the number of sides you cut. For example, you could have a flat ornament with just a front and back stitched together. Mine has four sides, two beaded and two classics. I'm hoping to make lots more stitched ornaments, and with all the variations (beaded, embroidered, sequins, woven) and felt colors, I can get nearly endless different looks.
I used thin white thread to sew on the white pearl beads, so that it wouldn't show much, and white embroidery floss for all the other stitching.
I finished the top and bottom with some button stacks, a jingle bell, and a hanging loop. This was super fun to stitch together! Best of all, you can get 5-6 ornaments per roll of felt, which works out to only $1.25-$1.35 each!
Dies: Stitched Ornaments: Beaded; Stitched Ornaments: Classics
Other: Smokey Shadow, Simply Chartreuse, and Pure Poppy felt; white, Smokey Shadow, Simply Chartreuse, and Pure Poppy buttons, jingle bell, silver cord, white embroidery floss, white thread
