Happy Christmas Eve Eve! :) Sharon here with you today and I have some adorable new-to-me embellishments to share with you -- Tin Pins by Darcie's Heart & Home!
These sweet little (just under 1-inch) guys are metal (tin) dimensional "pins" but they have a flat back, so they are easily adhered to your projects. Think metal buttons/pins that are pre-printed (and colored beautifully, by the way!) that have coordinating clear stamp sets ... genius! Hopefully you can see how nicely these little embellishments blend into their coordinating stamp sets, giving an unexpected pop of dimension!
Above, I used the Love Hearts clear stamp set and coordinating Love Hearts Tin Pin. I stamped the darling heart with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Neenah 110 Lb. Solar White cardstock and used the following Copic markers to color her to match her coordinating Tin Pin (R81-83-85, Y11, G20-24, B12):
Love Hearts Tin Pin matches (the stamp set is shown on the top left, and the coordinating Tin Pins on the top right):
Using my Copic Hand Color Chart, I matched up a few more of these cute Tin Pins for you, with their coordinating Copic colors, so you can color the stamped images to match the Tin Pins as closely as possible. Again, the stamp set is shown on the top left, and the Tin Pins on the top right. Click on the graphics to view these products in Ellen's store --
Pizza My Heart Tin Pin matches (RV14, Y00, R05-08 / N1, R81, B0000, B000, BG05):
Sweetie Pie Tin Pin Copic matches (Y23-26, R81-83-85, B000, B00, B12 / R83-85) -- Just think how cute these would be, made into magnets for the fridge!
To finish the card above, I die cut my cute little colored heart with MFT's Pierced Heart Stax Die-namics and used a doubled-up piece of X-Press It High Tack Double-Sided Tape to mount the Tin Pin over the stamped image. Next, I popped her up on X-Press It Foam Mounting Tape to a Bazzill Card Shoppe Pale Rose panel that was die cut with MFT's Blueprints 23 Die-namics stitched panel. A Blueprints 23 scalloped strip die cut from Bazzill Lollipop cardstock was placed beneath the heart.
Next, I wanted to show you that these adorable Tin Pins can also be used independently from their coordinating stamp sets, to create quick and easy projects! Since tomorrow is Christmas Eve, I had to sneak in one last holiday card for you:
For this card, I used the three 1-1/4" circles panel from MFT's Blueprints 23 Die-namics to cut the perfectly-spaced holes in a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" Neenah 110 Lb. Solar White panel, then I die cut the panel with Essentials by Ellen Stitches Cover Plate by Julie. Next, I popped the stitched panel up on foam tape over a Neenah Solar White 110 Lb. card base. Then I colored the three negative space circles with Copic markers R81, G20, and B00 and taped them back in place (recessed) on the card base:
Next, I adhered the cute Tin Pins (the pie and sugar Sweetie Pie Tin Pins are on the left and right, respectively; and Pizza My Heart coffee cup in the center) on top of the colored circles. Then I dressed them up, using stamped and die cut hats and a scarf from Essentials by Ellen Fat Pants by Julie stamps and coordinating Fat Pants Designer Dies! The green hat was stamped with Taylored Expressions Granny Smith Premium Dye Ink, the blue scarf with Salt Water Taffy, and the pink hat with Strawberry Milkshake:
To finish this card, I die cut gold glitter cardstock with Julie's Brushstroke Joy and added it to the panel using rolled up Mini Glue Dots. The "Wishing You" sentiment is from Julie's Merry & Bright stamp set and was white heat embossed onto Gold Leaf cardstock and die cut with the flag banner from Blueprints 23. Didn't these little Tin Pins dress up adorably?!!
Wishing you all joy and a very Merry Christmas!
