25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS, DAY #23: Keepsake Holiday Ornament...

Today's 25 Days of Christmas project is my version of the ornament on the front of the ornament on the front cover of the Holiday Catalog.

This was one of the projects we made at my Holly Jolly Stamp Camp a few weeks ago.   Since it was only one of many projects we would be doing,  I didn't want to take up too much time with stamping all the images and cutting them out, so I chose to just use Designer Series Paper and Glimmer Paper.  I used the Natural Composition Specialty DSP and brayed Cherry Cobbler onto it.  I love this paper as it is embossed, so the ink will not stick to the embossed designs.  Just use a paper towel to buff the ink off and you have your own custom colored DSP!

Since I made two of these (one as a sample and one during class), I decided to hot glue the ornaments together to have a full 2-sided ornament.  Yes, the two were made with different patterns, but you really only see one side at a time and the colors match, so it works for me.  Here is a side view of the ornament.

Update:  I have gotten several inquires for a tutorial for the ornament.  Since this was a paid class project, I am not sharing the directions for the ornament on my blog.  However, if you purchase the Holiday Ornaments Framelits and/or the Keepsake Ornament Stamp Set or bundle through me, just email me and I will send you a PDF with the instructions.
