Maddy & Snowman Ornament
Hope you're all having a nice, relaxing Sunday!! It's a rainy, dreary day here in Hawaii...I hope this project adds some brightness to your day!! I picked up some of these clear, fillable ornaments at Ben Franklin (they're actually going to be on sale from October 31 - November 7 at Ben Franklin...just in case you're interested!!!). I cut out a piece of clear acetate (traced around the smaller half of the ornament)...then stamped #A113 (Snowflakes) with Staz-On white ink. I stamped, colored and cut stamp #C110 (Maddy & Snowman), and glued it to the piece of acetate. I also used the Staz-On white ink to stamp more snowflakes to the outside of the ornament. This was actually pretty tricky since the ornament is not a flat surface. What I found to work the best is the watch the inside of the ornament as you're stamping the outside (holding the stamp upside down). This way you can see exactly where the stamp is making contact with the ornament). It also helps to use a slow, circular motion when stamping. I added some glitter glue here and there on the snowflakes...then, glued the acetate to the smaller half of the ornament and snapped the two halves together. I finished it off with a bow and a silver cord to hang it up. Here's a closer look:
Oh! One more thing!!! Remember the card I made from the last post? Using the Sam & Max stamp? I had a bunch of circles on my worktable that I had punched out to make that card...they looked like ornaments, so I decided to make them into gift tags:
Stamps used: #918 (Reindeer) and #925 (Holly). Thanks for stopping by!!!
