Hang it up!

The local AZ Scrapbooking store in Green Valley, AZ asked those of us who teach there to create an ornament. They will be handing out the chipboard shape and having a contest for their customers to decorate these for assorted themes and prizes. Of course, us teachers are exempt but I hope mine inspires someone!

I can't remember the name of the paper other than it's be Basic Grey. The Rejoice is from a retired set called Whimsical Greetings and I stamped it with Red Brick VM ink and embossed using Transcendence Embossing Powder. (This is the best clear embossing powder! Can be used on dye ink!!) I used the Mega Scallop Oval and Super Jumbo Scallop Oval punches.

Can you see where I used my Stardust Clear Gel pen?? It's on the Basic Grey paper and the dots on the scallops! I also used a quarter piece of hydra sponge and Chartreuse PH ink on the small scallop for emphasis.

This cool leaping reindeer is from the Reideer Food set. It is available for a short time so if you're interested in it you must order it soon!! Again I used Brick Red VM ink and Transcendence embossing. I also used my White Gel pen for embellishment around the ovals. Oh, the swirls on the edge of the small oval were stamped with Chartreuse PH ink. The red and brown cardstocks are actually 1 sheet of Core'dinations paper! It's double-sided! Love that stuff!

I used some green braiding cord to line the edge of the ornament and for the hanger. And these beads are from the ribbon of beads. I think they were a great touch at the bottom of this ornament. You can also see where I used the Stardust Clear Gel pen on those little dots on the swirls around the edge of the white piece. It was also used on the swirls within the reindeer.

I hope to get this back after Christmas. Now to figure out where to put my initials! Are you getting ready for Christmas?? Got your cards done? Tree out? Gifts purchased? Anyway, you don't have much time left!! Less than a month! Wahoo!
