Sparkle N Sprinkle Old Tractor Ornament

Hi! Today's project is a hanging ornament using Sparkle N Sprinkle's Old Tractor stamp set, that was released in August. This stamp set is really gorgeous, but I wanted to highlight the sentiment and a "love" diecut as the stars of the ornament. This is what I created.

I started out by die cutting out the hexagon "frame" by taping two Hexagon Layering Basics dies together and then running them through my Tonic Tangerine. I also die cut a piece of cardstock with the Deco Diamond Patterned Panels and then die cut it into a hexagon shape. I also die cut out a hexagon shape from inside the panel. I die cut a hexagon acetate piece, and a white cardstock piece. I stamped the tractor image and one of the sentiments using the Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. For the tractor, I stamped the image with Versafine Black Onyx Ink, and then sprinkled on Sparkle embossing powder and heat set it. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink, and then sprinkled on Timber embossing powder and heat set it. Here are all the "pieces" I created to make this hanging ornament.

It is hard to tell, but here is the dry embossing in the acetate. After I die cut the acetate into a hexagon shape, I ran it through the Filigree Affections Idyllics Embossing Folder to give it some texture. You can see some of it in this photo below.

Here is a close up of the Old Tractor sentiment embossed with TImber embossing powder. I also squeezed little drops of Buttermilk Crystal Drops all around the outer edge of the hexagon panel.

I also squeezed on Double Denim and Party Pink Crystal Drops along parts of the background too.

This photo has more of the ornament in it - but what really makes me happy about this photo is the way that the light showcases how amazing that Timber embossing powder is! Check out that color and glow! AMAZING! Beautiful!

And, I also die cut out the Will's Hand Love Miniature Moments die. I die cut the sentiment from cardstock, inked it up with Versarmark ink, and then sprinkled on Sandstone embossing powder and heat set it. I layered it over the outline die from the same set. This embossing powder is fantastic. I love all the detail and color flecks in this embossing powder. I think it is absolutely gorgeous!

I enjoyed this ornament. I like the layers and the gorgeous embossing powders for the sentiments and the tractor itself. What a fun project!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!

  1. You are so clever, Chris! FABULOUS design, and what man-"child" wouldn't be thrilled with this ornament! I especially love the hint of a tractor showing. Wonderful design tip for how to create a feel/flavor without using the entire stamp! Hope you all have lots of happy memories and fun in FL next month! xx
