Xyron and Clearsnap

Xyron and Clearsnap have teamed up this week to bring you some fabulous projects. Don't forget to stop by the Clearsnap and Ain't She Crafty blogs for more inspiration.

I received some fun products to play with and have 3 projects to share. Veterans day will soon be upon us and the Red, White, and Blue Colorbox Pigment Stamp Pad was perfect to color this card.

I cut the star shape using my Silhouette Cameo from white Bazzill cardstock and colored the star pieces with the ink pad. I added a sentiment, adhered everything together, and this quick and easy card was complete.

It's never too early to start creating for the holidays and for my next project I created these two ornaments using Winter Frost Glitter from Clearsnap.

I die cut two snowflake shapes, ran them through my Xyron 5" Creative Station, and added the glitter. The Xyron adhesive makes it quick and easy to apply the glitter and is a lot less messy than using a liquid glue. I finished the ornaments off with stamps from Papertrey Ink, a few beads, and a hook I made from wire.

For my final project I made a couple of simple Fall place cards using Clearsnap Gold Glow Smooch Spritz.

I cut the pieces of the place cards using my Silhouette Cameo and sprayed the leaves with the golden glow spritz. It may be hard to see in the photos, but it's such a gorgeous gold color. I also used it to paint the edges of the cardstock before adhering the name piece on top of it. These would be quick and simple to make for each person attending a Thanksgiving celebration or other get togethers.
