Christmas Ornaments

Well I promised you another post today so here I am.

 I’m sure if you’ve seen the new Holiday Catalogue that you loved the ornament on the front cover too. Well I had a play and made 2 in different colour combinations.

First up I made one using Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive. Same colours as the Holiday Catalogue one but the centre on mine is different. The one on the Catalogue uses the ‘Candlelight Christmas’ DSP but I didn’t have any at the time so I used a piece of ‘Be of Good Cheer’ DSP instead. I have also used a smaller Vintage Faceted Designer Button because I also didn’t have the new Large Pearls yet…..

I’m still very happy with my results. I have some plans to change this one slightly so where they are made I will share that with you.

I must say the Scallop Tulle Ribbon is just so soft and gorgeous.

I have a class listed in my Class Schedule to make one of these so if you are interested, check out the date and let me know if you want to book in.

This ornament was a ‘traditional’ Christmas one (red & green colours), so what else to do but make a ‘non-traditional’ one too.

As you can see this one is made using blues. I’ve used Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy for this one, with some Crumb Cake Scalloped Tulle Ribbon. The centre is some Baja Breeze Pattern Stack DSP.

Both of these look much better in real life.

They are a little time consuming but well worth it. Personally I think they are a little big for a Christmas Tree but I love hanging decorations all around my house and from the ceiling so I’m sure I’ll find somewhere to put these this year.

I wanted to show an ornament at a Workshop last month but these are too time consuming for that so I made a small ornament using this same Keepsake Ornament stamp set and coordinating Framelits.

 This one is a great size for the Christmas Tree. I’ve made mine in Cherry Cobbler and the rosette is made from some ‘Be of Good Cheer’ DSP. I’ve added Crumb Cake Scalloped Tulle Ribbon, a Vintage Faceted Designer Button and a Pearl. I’m going to make some more of these in other colours when I can find some spare time with everything on this month.

 You can find online Video tutorials for all these ornaments if you wanted to have a go yourself. The large ornaments is a tutorial from Chicnscratch which you will find here and the smaller one is from Alison Solven which you can view here.

 I’ll be back a little later to share the Make & Take card I used for this same workshop and also it was our Make & Take at Septembers Market.
