Ornaments!

Hiya! Been awhile, but I finally got to make a few cards tonight. I had really better get on the ball if I want to send at least some handmade cards for Christmas. (Admittedly, I did get a box after Christmas at Target last year just in case! LOL)

Anyway, I tried out my All that Glitters set from Flourishes. LOVE it. LOVE it. LOVE it some more. I am way into vintage-y ornaments this year and so disappointed that the ones I saw in the Crate & Barrel catalog were sold out online and in the store. Dern it! Oh well. I found a few alternates, but not the ones I had hoped. On to my ornament cards ...


These are 3.5 x 5" cards. Love this little size. Note to self ... order more A1 envelopes! I used a Kraft base with Vintage Cream and Ripe Avocado layers. I stamped the leaves in Ripe Avocado and the bow and sentiment in Memento Rich Cocoa. I colored the ornaments with Copics and added some glue with a 2-Way Glue Pen before dunking them in glitter! The ornaments are on foam tape to add a little dimension. Here's a purple one ... And a close up of the mauve-y colored one with the sparkly glitter!This one is my favorite and was my prototype for the others. I have 4 more to assemle (one of each of these plus a blue-grey ornament one. But I had to work on some more orders for my customers. Hope to get all those out this weekend so that I can relax and not worry about overnighting a bunch of stuff this year!

Well, off to bed. Only 2 more days left of school before break. And me and my students definitely need a break from each other! LOL Thanks for stopping by! I have some fun gifts that I made recently for a party and secret santa at work, so I will be posting those over the next couple of days.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: All that Glitters - Flourishes; Stocking Prints (sentiment) - PTI
Ink: PTI Ripe Avocado; Memento Rich Cocoa; Copics
Paper: PTI Kraft, Vintage Cream, Ripe Avocado
Accessories: Taylored Expressions glitter; PTI Dark Chocolate twill
