Growing in Unity Day 1: Holiday Gift Labels And Ornament

Hi everyone,

I'm so excited to be the Growing in Unity (GIU) girl this week. Every day this week, from Monday to Friday, I will show a project done using some Unity stamps.

At the end of this week, I will randomly draw a winner from those who comment on my posts. The lucky person will receive TWO Itty Bitty stamps of their choice from Unity Stamp Company. So, don't forget to leave some comments on my posts this week.

If you are not yet a follower of my blog, I would be happy if you become my new follower :).

Today, I want to share the holiday gift labels and a Christmas ornament that I made using a cute wreath stamp from July 2010 Kit of the Month and the Time & Seasons number stamps.

Holiday Gift Labels

Using the Silhouette machine and the trace feature of the Silhouette software, I die cut the red wreaths, the cream cardstock and the number banners. I then stamped the wreath image using some Versamark ink and heat embossed the image with white embossing powder.

For the number banners, I just stamped the images with some Versafine ink in Spanish Moss. I then assembled the pieces together.

Christmas Ornament

For the ornament, I made a 3-D Christmas tree using a stamp from the Gingham Christmas Greetings set. I stamped 3 images, fussy cut and glued the 3 pieces together to wrap a piece of baker's twine.

I glued the top part of the twine to the back of the wreath die cut. To hang this ornament, I used some red/white baker's twine and glued it to another wreath die cut. I then stacked the wreath die cut with the embossed image on top of the other wreath die cut with the help of some foam squares.

Using EK Success Christmas Cookies edger punch, I made those tiny stars, gingerbread men/women and trees that you see on the wreath.

Don't forget to leave a comment. See you tomorrow!
