The project I am going to share with you today is one of the monthly design team gallery projects I made for Spellbinders Paper Arts. For my project I altered a heart shaped ornament. The wonderful thing about this project is that you could use it on a Christmas tree or use it for a fun Valentine's decoration. I used two of the Spellbinders dies for creating this design, Rose Borderability Grand (S7-001) and Ribbon Tags Trio (S3-150). The Rose Borderability Grand is a 12" border die that can be used for scrapbook LO's but you can also use just a small portion of it for your smaller projects. The Ribbon Tags Trio is also a wonderful set of dies, three different tag dies come in the set.To start out I painted the heart shaped ornament with a white acrylic paint and then once that was dry I painted over it with a pearl paint. Then I cut and embossed the rose border die using the Wizard and then I colored in the roses and leaves with pastels from The Stencil Collection. I love using these pastels! They are so simple to work with and you can apply them with your finger tips. Then I cut and embossed the tag and stamped the word LOVE in the center. To stamp the word LOVE I used Special Occasions Deluxe Kit from JustRite Stampers along with Orchid Pastel Ink from ClearSnap. After I had both of the die cuts done then I inked the edges using a combination of Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink and Creamy Brown Ink from ClearSnap. To apply the roses I used Zip-Dry adhesive from Beacon. I also added some ribbon, lace, pretty pink trim, a few buttons and a tiny bit of glitter. For a finishing touch I edged the heart with little dots of White Opal, Liquid Pearls from Ranger.
The heart shaped ornament came from Joann's but I am sure you could find them in several craft stores. It's a great way to take something simple and turn it into something beautiful!
