More Ornaments...

because, you know, I have a problem stopping when it comes to ornaments. It's a sickness, I assure you, but the following ornament cured this particular bout of the obsession.

It took an embarrassing number of attempts to get it right:

Finally! And the result really isn't hard at all. Sigh. Sometimes, I'm a dork and try to make things too complicated. KEEP IT SIMPLE, SUSAN!

And the ornament is fab, isn't it? So sparkly and fun. I punched out a smaller circle from a sheet of adhesive, adhered it to the turquoise scalloped circle, and put turquoise glitter on the top. Then, using glue dots, I adhered the snowflake circle over the glitter. That was it. And I am SO DONE with ornaments for this year.


I made the following red-and-vanilla ornament last year. It's very much in the spirit of my recent bling post, don't you think?

The stamp is from Etruscan, a long-ago retired SU set that I love. It's on very vanilla cardstock, then mounted on real red. The photo fails to capture the sparkle of the gems, but I'm sure you get the idea!

Tomorrow, hopefully, the sun will come out and I can get some decent pictures of my latest gift set. It's not got any ornaments in it. What in the world could it be?!? *wink*


  1. oh, oh, oh, I am loving your turquoise snowflake glittery goodness!! I am totally going to make these but in a smaller version as embellishments for cards!! .... now, if only I had a snowflake punch :-( guess I might have to put that on my christmas list!!! Thanks for the inspiration..again!! :-)

  2. Both are so lovely. I am a big fan of red and white.

  3. This little red one took my breath away. I have a few different images that could work for this type of things.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
