Decorative Tiles - Holiday Gift Class

This great idea was developed by the awesome & talented Kimberly Van Diepen and with this link on her name, you can check out her blog! She truly embodies the "statement of heart" from Stampin' Up! and shares what she loves. We were lucky to have her as a guest speaker at one of our group meetings last year and she inspired us all. Thanks Kimberly for all you do!

I used the Vintage Ornaments II stencils from Stampin' Up! from in the Definitely Decorative catalog. Next I applied Old Olive CRAFT Stampin' Ink with a sponge dauber, then glassy glaze embossing powder. Bake in oven at 350 for 10-13 minutes. Let cool completely. Next use stencil ease stencil paste or texture magic (I used this because I can not find stencil paste at our hobby store), spread around stencil and lift straight up. It will leave a textured finish. Let dry completely. To add color to, use craft ink on sponge dauber to desired color. To finish I used the Old Olive 1 1/4" stripped grosgrain ribbon (new this catalog) and the hat pin with pearls & beads from the Pretties kit. And Viola' are done and have a beautiful gift to give to someone special.
Hope you enjoy this little sneak peak to my class next week.
Sharing JOY one stamp at a time!
