Hi, Stamper. Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! I’m sharing the Christmas Classics Handmade Ornament I made as one of the pillow gifts for my Christmas Classics Online Retreat. (Laura Buechler, from Canada, and I do Quarterly Online Retreats – our next one will be in January 2024).
This month, the theme is Home for the Holidays. We really hope that you will be inspired by all the amazing creations the Pals are sharing with you! Then, you will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
This Christmas Classics Handmade Ornament were easy to make and so fun!
Each Christmas Classics Handmade Ornament starts with a piece of Joy of Christmas DSP cut out with the largest circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies as the base. Then I used the same large circle and the next size down to cut 3 or 4 rings from Pecan Pie cardstock. Those rings were glued together and then to the base circle. I adhered a piece of Linen Thread between these layers, so I could hang the ornament.
The leaves for my Christmas Classics Handmade Ornament were cut out of Shaded Spruce and Old Olive cardstock using the Christmas Classics Dies. I then swapped the inner pieces of each with the opposite color leaves to create additional interest. The leaves were then adhered to the center of each ornament. A few Iridescent Rhinestone Jewels were colored with the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend and and then adhered to the top of the leaves.
The sentiment for each Christmas Classics Handmade Ornament was stamped onto Basic Black cardstock using Versamark ink and White Embossing Powder. The sentiment was then cut out using paper snips and adhered to the circle using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. Each Christmas Classics Handmade Ornament is finished off with a bow made from the Very Vanilla and Black checked ribbon.
I hope you like my Classic Christmas Handmade Ornament and decide to give it a try. Below, find the video tutorial to help you create your own.
