See How to Make a Snowflake Shaker Ornament with Mboss

by Martha Lucia Gomez

Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here! Today, I am sharing a snowflake shaker ornament that you can use to decorate your gifts and/or Christmas tree. To create this, I am using a shaker dimension set with a snowflake design, VersaMark Clear Ink and Mboss Blue Icicle. Like this set came with a piece of acetate sheet to cover the free areas, I made it like a shaker piece adding some sprinkles.

Skill: Advanced
Time: 30 minutes

Directions


Step 1

Ink one of the sides of your or the ornament directly with the VersaMark Inkpad. Cover it with your selection of Mboss color. I used the Blue Icicle.


Step 2

Melt the powder with the heat tool. And repeat the process twice or three times to give more dimension to your ornament.


Step 3

Cut a piece of card stock with the same shape or your ornament and apply over it some touches of Frost Sheer Shimmer Stix. Let the paper dry naturally.


Step 4

Paste the base shape or double-sided foam tape onto the inked shape. Add your fillers, it could be sequins, sprinkles, beads or whatever you want. Adhere the clear acetate on top with liquid glue and cover it with the embossed design. Finalize your ornament adding a tie or pasting it to your gift. You can try different designs and different colors of Mboss to add your personal touch! Thank you for stopping by and see you soon!

Come Let Us Adore Him Christmas Card

Come Let Us Adore Him Christmas Card

I am constantly making backgrounds and sometimes, depending on the design of the card, I cut and die cut those backgrounds and I have “leftover” pieces. In today’s video, I wanted to share two different Christmas cards made with just one background. Using Joy Clair Stamps with Memento Ink makes it super fun!

Beginner Guide: Make a Snow Globe Holiday Card

Beginner Guide: Make a Snow Globe Holiday Card

Learn how to make a quick and easy Holiday card with a simple woodblock Snowglobe stamp. We love this clean and simple card design using a variety of stamping inks.


VersaFine Clair in Nocturne

Memento DewDrop – Bahama Blue

VersaColor in Cyan

Sponge Dauber

Snowglobe Stamp


Reindeer Stamp

Card and Envelope Set

Directions

Start this lovely card design by taping down the card base with a piece of masking tape. Ink up a sponge dauber with Memento Ink in Bahama Blue. The sponge dauber is a dense foam and will absorb the ink slowly. This causes the ink to stay on the surface of the sponge and will transfer to the paper evenly. Rub the ink onto the card in a circular motion. Ink another dauber with VersaColor in Cyan and layer on top of the dye ink. Mixing the pigment of VersaColor and the dye of Memento ink creates a lush look.

Stamp the Snobglobe image using VersaFine Clair in Nocturne. Since VersaFine Clair is a hybrid oil-based ink, it will stamp well on top of the Memento and Versacolor inks.

Continue with stamping the Reindeer stamp inside the Snowglobe. Here this is a fun part of this card design. As long as you can find an image that will fit inside the snowglobe you can vary the card design as much as you want. Finish the card design with the holiday sentiment of your choice below the snowglobe image!

Decorate Your Home for the Holidays with Clay Ornaments

Decorate Your Home for the Holidays with Clay Ornaments

Light-weighted, these Christmas ornaments can be hung anywhere in the house to decorate during the festive holiday season. Use any Christmas theme casting mold to make the ornaments and if you don’t have any, a flat layer of clay with some cookie cutters can work too. They are easy to make and coloring is a breeze with All-Purpose Ink and StazOn Pigment inks.

Skill: Beginner
Time: 1 hour (excluding clay dry time)

Directions


Step 1

If you are creating the clay pieces yourself then allow clay of the Christmas shapes to fully dry. If you are using premade shapes then you are ready to start. Using a paintbrush, color the surface of the ornaments with All-Purpose Ink Poppy Red and Lemon Yellow. Premix the two colors or lay first the Poppy Red and add a layer of Lemon Yellow after. Let them dry.


Step 2

Cover the embossed details of the shapes with All-Purpose White to create a distressed or antique look. The easiest way to apply the color is by using a finger and lightly tapping on the embossed areas. Let them dry.


Step 3

Press the crystals directly on the StazOn Pigment ink pad, let them sit a bit to allow the ink to dry well and repeat for a good coverage. Cover on the backside only.


Step 4

Use a hot glue gun to set ribbons on the clay shapes, add beads and crystals.
