Stampin' Dreams...... now for Something Different - Christmas Tree Ornaments!


Welcome to the monthly Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop. This month's theme is "something Different". You are currently visiting Sue Vine from Adelaide, Australia. I stepped outside the square of card making today and created some fun Tree Ornaments.




These were super fun to make - the Season Chums images were the perfect size for the small baubles I found in my local Spotlight store. Once stamped I used the die cuts, then trimmed off the little tag section, then it was fun time - colouring! I used Fast Fuse to hold the tag together, then onto the next step!


The real fun started, mixing Embossing Paste with Dazzling Diamonds to create the snow, then carefully putting a layer into the bottom of the bauble, taking care to keep the application the same on each side, then some extra glitter into one side of the bauble to shake around after it is joined - you can't have to much glitter can you, lol!


I carefully laid the bottom of the die cut into the embossing paste, then closed the bauble - the embossing paste connected beautifully - woot!  Lastly I added a bow for decoration and metallic thread to hang onto the tree.




My photo's don't do these justice, I didn't count on any reflection showing up in the bauble. They look so stinkin' cute in the glittery snow in real life!
