Christmas Decorations


Gillian has also issued this fabulous challenge over at Mixed Media Monday. Gillian’s challenge to you is to create a Christmas ornament or decoration, that can be hung on the tree, in a window, etc.

Today over at One Powerful Hour the Guest Designer Joanne W. Has challenged us to make Christmas Ornaments. There is also a fabulous Rubber Stamp give away from Inka Stamps for one lucky participant.

Here are my ornaments. Both of the images are from Alpha Stamps as well as the fabulous 2 x 2 inch square ornament. I am also using these pieces for a swap hosted through the Alpha Stamps yahoo group. If you are not a member you should be!

For the ornament on the right I used the Alpha Stamp image and then I added the three little Santa's at the bottom (also from Alpha Stamps). On the outside of the glass I places the circular 3D sticker that says "Merry" and all around the metal edge I affixed using diamond glaze red rhinestones. To finish of this fun ornament i added some fabulous Christmas ribbons.






Because the ornaments are so fun and easy to make I made another on.

This one also uses a collage image from Alpha Stamps. The snowflakes are stamped with versa mark and then I used pearl ex powder to turn them an iridescent shimmery gold.

On the outside I covered the metal ornament with gold glitter and affixed a gold Christmas tree that was part of a ribbon. To finish it off I affixed the gold rick rack...

Hope you like my ornaments. they were supper fun to make and easy. Thanks Joanne for the fabulous challenge!

Here is a bit more about the Guest Designer...

My name is Joanne Wardle, and I have been cardmaking for about 5 years. My main love now is stamping, but it took me a while to get into it. I love to try stamping onto different surfaces. I am also a complete challenge addict, so I'm really pleased to have chosen this theme, of Christmas decorations, for One Powerful Hour.

Make sure to check out her fabulous blog...Made By Joanne
