Bloggers Challenge #16 - Ornaments

This weeks challenge was to make an ornament....Well I just couldn't make one, so I'm sharing a few different ideas with you. At the bottom of my post you'll find a few links to other ornaments that I've posted in the past on my blog. I hope this gives you some creative ideas for your Christmas Ornaments. Be sure to check out my fellow Blog Challenge Players Ornament ideas, their links are on my sidebar.




















You can purchase the tin for this ornament here


Stamps - Hugs & Wishes, Tags for All
Card Stock - Vanilla
Ink - Black, Real Red, Bordering Blue
Other - Crop-a-Dile, Red Gingham Ribbon






This ornament uses a 6" x 12" piece of Dashing DSP, that was cut into 6" x 1/2" pieces, then rolled and dropped into the glass ball. I added some vellum confetti as faux snow, and tied on Wild Wasabi Double Stitched Ribbon











For this next ornament, I used the same type of glass ball shown above, and added some Ranger Alcohol Inks, and Metallic Mixatives to resemble the Polished Stone Technique. I added some Silver Elastic Cording to hang the ornament.




















3D Scallop
Photo Holders

Have a great weekend!

Great job. I too made one of those that you roll your paper in. Those really are pretty and so easy. I love the snowman one.

Well, for my ornament, I was going to copy Mary Jo... then I saw your snowman tin, and thought... no, I'll do that one, 'cause I have a bunch of those tins... then I saw the rolled paper ball... and thought "oh that's really pretty, and it doesn't involve any stamping, I'll do that one"... I don't have any Ranger inks, but now I'm trying to figure a way to do that one! Thanks for the confusion! LOL.

BTW, fabulous job, as always!

Great ornaments Lisa! I love the rolled up designer paper. So easy and yet very visually striking. What a great way to use up those scraps that I can't bear to throw away.
