Add A Little Dazzle Diva’s Challenge #55!

dd55heart1 Hey! I know, two posts at once! And I forgot to post one yesterday that will have to come tomorrow!!!

I’ve chosen to make an ornament. I picked up some of these slate hearts dirt cheap recently to use as present tags. They may be a little heavy to use as that- but they’ll make cute ornaments for my home!
I’ve just sketched the letters in pencil and then added gold gel pen to pad out each word! Super easy!

I’ve used Glimmer Gold and Black Diamond metal


Please link up here – pull out your crafting supplies and make a project using a White & Gold theme. Then, share it with us by linking to the bottom of the post.  You have until Tuesday, December 16th to enter.  The winner will receive a $15 Metal voucher for the store.

Do join in and see what all the fuss about metal is!

See you tomorrow!

Add A Little Ornament & Metal Offer!

Hi! It’s an Ornament challenge (or Anything Goes) this week at the Dazzling Diva Challenge #36.

For the ornament, I started off diecutting some white metal sheeting with the Tim Holtz rosette die. After attaching it to some cardstock at the back I added some green sequins as a handle.
I stamped one of Papermania’s latest stamps from the ‘Create Christmas’ range in white Stazon on the Dark Chocolate metal and then ran it though a dots embossing folder.
Metal is very soft and flexible and so to keep the dots from pushing back in, I added embossing paste into the holes to keep them solid.
Next, I adhered the metal to cardstock and trimmed it out. This was tricky- if I did it again, I’d stamp it twice, cut out the deers separately and then stick together.
I next die cut some snowflakes from an XCut Christmas symbols set and also the Die-namics ‘Let it Snowflake’ set in Brushed Copper.
I then slightly rubbed the dots with a file and this sanded away the top colour which helped accentuate the dots. Then, just add it all together!!
