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.
