Stampendous and Spellbinders: A Huge Holiday Hop!


Tuesday through Thursday of this week, Stampendous has been collaborating with Spellbinders and other product partners, to encourage everyone to make this a handmade holiday! Prize info and links are below my project for today:

It's always fun to play with new crafting toys, and let's face it Spellbinders has some of the best! Especially, if you are mixing them with all of the great products from Stampendous as well.

My project is an old-fashioned cone ornament, a perfect way to add some little treats on the tree. I've used the die from the Spellbinder's "Create a Cone" die and embossing plate set to cut the cone shape from a piece of kraft cardstock. The Stampendous Cardinal Elements was stamped once on the cone in Rich Cocoa Memento ink from Tsukineko, and twice on a separate piece of kraft cardstock using the Rhubarb Stalk Memento ink. All pieces were ink-distressed with Peanut Brittle Memento ink. The cone was formed and adhered using Beacon Zip Dry Adhesive. I spread Beacon GemTac around the tip of the cone and the top edge, and covered this heavily with Stampendous Gold Crushed Glass Glitter. The second bird was cut out and adhered partially to the cone. The third bird's wing was cut out and popped up with dimensional foam tape.

I created a hanger with galvanized wire, and added a stamped Stampendous Greeting on a Spellbinder Grommet Tag Die, along with a fluffy May Arts ribbon bow. A bit of glittery tulle and some treats complete this sweet ornament gifty.
