Tuesday Tutorial - Elegant Ornaments


Hi Friends, Bev here with a little tutorial on how I put these cards together using the fab-u-las Elegant Ornament Clear Stamps and Elegant Ornament Die.  

For the blue card, I inked up a panel of smooth white card with Distress Oxides in Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire.  I then splattered the card with water and left it to dry.  I added some splatters with the distress oxides that I diluted with water and again left it to dry.  

I followed the same method for the red card, and used Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries and Aged Mahogany.

I mounted these panels on to a top folding card base.

I stamped and heat embossed the ornaments on to white card and trimmed so it fit the front of the panels, leaving a small border top and bottom.  I stamped and die cut the ornaments again, this time removing the connected side panel so I could pop these up next to the other stamped baubles.  I stamped and heat embossed sentiments then popped the panel on to the inked panels with foam tape for some dimension, and finished off with some jewels for a bit of bling.

I hope you enjoyed seeing the process of how I put these cards together.

Thanks for stopping by


  1. These are gorgeous! I especially love that you used the white side piece that’s left after die cutting the ornaments. Genius idea! This is a beautiful stamp set. I’ve already finished my holiday cards but I think I need these for next year’s cards!

  2. How elegant your cards are and the bauble die is beautiful x
