Snowplace Christmas Ornament

Today was ornament making day, and I made several different kinds but the ornament I like the best was the one I made using the Snow Place Stamp set and half of a plastic ornament.


After stamping and die cutting the small snow man and the penguin, I die cut the following using the retired circle framelits:
.one scallop circle
.2 of the largest circle framelits in Whisper White
.2 of the same size in Dazzling Diamond glimmer paper
Other supplies needed:  blue sequins, mica powder, embossing buddy. 1/2 of a large plastic ornament, some decorative ribbon, tombo glue, hot glue gun.

On one of the Whisper White circles, snowflakes were randomly stamped with Versa Mark and embossed with White embossing powder.  The entire circle was then sponged with Night of Navy ink and then wiped with a paper towel to bring out the white snowflakes.

Then both dazzling diamond glimmer circles were cut in a curvy manner in 3 different layers, each layer being shorter than the other. They were adhered to the embossed Night of Navy background circle.

The Penguin was placed on top of the second layer; the small snowman on the lower layer. Tombo glue was used to adhere all these layers. This art piece circle was adhered to a second Whisper White circle and then to the Scalloped Circle. Clamps were used to keep the layers together until the adhesive dried.

Sequins and snow was piled on top of the images, and a layer of glue was placed around the edges of the circle.  Before attaching the 1/2 ornament to the image circle, it was wiped with the embossing buddy.  This prevents the "snow" from attaching to the inside of the ornament.

After adhering the ornament to the prepared circle, it was allowed to dry, and then some decorative ribbon was adhered to the outside and a bow placed on the top.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Snow Place 
Inks: Black Memento, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie marker, Versa Mark, Night of Navy
Papers:Whisper White, Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper
Accessories: Circles Framelits (retired), 1/2 large plastic ornament (non SU), sequins, mica flakes, White embossing powder, embossing buddy, Snow place framelits

Here's another one, using the larger snowman from the same stamp set:
