Christmas Ornaments

I watched a video last Christmas at Obsessed With Scrapbooking  and I knew I wanted to make some of these myself.  So as soon as the Christmas things came out at Michael's I bought 3 packages of the clear glass ornaments.  I finally got around to making them yesterday and they were so easy and turned out beautiful.  All you have to do is pour Pledge floor polish in the ornament, swirl it around to make sure it is all covered.  Pour out the excess polish, pour in the glitter (I used Martha Stewart, I love all the colours) and cover the hole and shake it to cover completely, pour out any excess.
I then cut out the names from white vinyl using Winter Woodlands for the font and snowflakes.

I haven't posted anything for awhile.  I have been working on a couple of things for Christmas so I can't post them, yet.   This is the birthday card that I made for my Dad.  I really like the look of the stamp with no colour and I just sponged around the edges.  All supplies are Stampin Up.

Throwback Thursday Christmas Theme

This weeks challenge over at Emma's blog is to make a Christmas themed project using the Celebrations cartridge. I don't have that cartridge so I used Joys of the Season for the Santa hat, which is cut at 3 1/2". I used liquid applique to look like fur on the hat. I love the was it works, you just apply it and heat it with you heat gun and it puffs up.

Paper: Crumb Cake, Real Red, Whisper White (SU), Holiday Collection-The Christmas Stack (DCWV)
Ink: White Uni-ball pen (Signo)
