This is Paula-Kay with a tutorial to show you how to make a Christmas pin using cork paper and stamps. I’ve used Red Rubber Designs Ginger Joy for the stamp.
You will need some supplies to begin: Palette Noir ink pad, patterned cardstock (I’ve used Cha Cha patterned cardstock), a piece of Cork paper, a piece of Kraft cardstock, Ginger Joy stamp, white Liquid Applique, scissors, two pearl accents, a pin back.
Step 1: Stamp Ginger Joy on the piece of cork, and also on the piece of Kraft cardstock, and the neck bow on the Cha Cha patterned cardstock.
Note: Stamping on Cork paper is just like stamping on cardstock. You can color it and cut it, mount it on background cardstock.
Step 2: Cut out the image stamped on the cork and the Kraft cardstock. Cut out the bow stamped on the patterned cardstock.
Step 3: Glue the cork image to the Kraft image (which will be the backing). Then glue the bow in place on top the cork image.
Step 4: Next add a little pink to the cheeks with a marker (I used a Copic marker) and glue two pearls (or buttons or jewels) on the front.
Step 5: Add white Liquid Applique to the icing on the image.
Step 6: Heat set the Liquid Applique with a heat gun until it puffs up. (Don’t overheat or it will burn).
Step 7: Turn Ginger Joy to back side and glue the pin back in place using strong glue (E6000 works great).
Step 8: As a last minute thought, I decided to add some small google eyes to Ginger Joy.
