Yesterday I told you that Stampin’ Up! will be retiring the Delicata metallic ink pads and refills once current stocks have been exhausted. I’m really sad about this as the inks are gorgeous, but I have one final project using the Celestial Copper ink pad to show you.
A MOSSY MEADOW START
I began this project by using my new Paper Trimmer to cut and score a piece of Mossy Meadow Card. Then I folded it along the scored line and sharpened the crease with a Bone Folder.
Next I cut a Mossy Meadow design from the Brightly Gleaming 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP). Then using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) I attached the DSP to the front of the card and set it aside
Finally I used Mossy Meadow ink to stamp the sentiment from the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set onto a narrow strip of Very Vanilla Card.
CELESTIAL COPPER INK
With the base done, I went back to the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set and chose the larger fancy ornament image. This would be the coordinating feature for my project.
Using Celestial Copper ink I first stamped the ornament in the top right corner on a layer of Very Vanilla Card. Then I fixed the layer inside the card base with liquid glue.
Next I used Celestial Copper ink to stamp the ornament in the top left corner on the front of a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope.
Finally I stamped the ornament onto a scrap of Very Vanilla Card, once again using Celestial Copper ink.
Now I needed the coordinating long ornament punch from the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack.
First I punched a piece from the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP and attached it to the card front with liquid glue. Then I punched out the stamped ornament and added that to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
All that left was the sentiment and it was at this point I decided that the narrow strip was a little boring. But I had an idea…
I picked up the same ornament punch, turned it over and inserted the end of the sentiment strip into it. Then I punched the strip and created a really pretty end. So I turned the strip around and did the same to the other end.
Then to finish my project I added the sentiment to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals and I was done.
Do you ever look at a punch and decide to use it for something completely different to what it was designed for?
Here’s some other projects I created using the Delicata Celestial Copper ink pad. If you want the copper, silver or gold ink pads or refills, make sure to order them before they sell out.
UPDATE 2020: Sadly the Celestial Copper Ink Pad has retired and is no longer available from Stampin’ Up!
