As mentioned in the previous post, these are Paper Pins made with the Nesties smallest Christmas tree die. I die cut two pieces of green card stock and one piece of chip board and modge podged them together and let dry. Next I modge podged the front of the pin and added seed beads, thread and paper stars. Dab a little extra modge podge to secure your decorations and let dry. Last, I modge podged the back, cut a strip of card stock small enough to fit a safety pin and adhered the pin, in an upright position. This is easy and fun. I have been wearing one for a few days now and it is holding up just fine.
This hanging ornament (front and back showing here) uses the middle sized Christmas tree Nestie die cut, and the beautiful matching image is from SparkleNSprinkle.com. First, I stamped the image on white card stock in red ink and then in green ink. Next I die cut both images, added two stars and ribbon. The edges are inked and the tree is sponged with green ink. This is fast and easy and could also make a cute gift tag.
Here is my new favorite set of Nesties from Spellbinders and matching rubber stamps from SparkleNSprinkle. You can get them in a combo pack from SparkleNSprinkle.com. I bought my combo set at the Grand Opening of the SparkleNSprinkle Store in Ruskin, FL and have been making cards, ornaments and paper pins for this Christmas season. I wasn't going to buy more craft items, but I could not resist this temptation and now I am glad I didn't. These three cards are made with the largest of the three Christmas Tree dies. In my next blog I will show the ornament and the paper pins using the medium and small dies.
