Christmas Ornaments

I got busy for Christmas Saturday. We got and decorated our tree, which gave me the oomph to create some ornaments.

I used my Bigz scallop circle die to cut chipboard and designer paper (Figgy Pudding by Basic Grey). I added a little glitter to each of the scallops. I found some lovely flowers in the bridal section of Michael's.
I used Prismacolor Pencils wtih mineral spirits and a blending stump to color my skaters. I had fun with Tilda's jacket, mixing turquoise and gray to give it a material feel.
This ornament was created with the Stampin' Up! Lattice Bigz Die. I used two pieces of chipboard. The center is part of a plastic notebook divider, originally used to create a punch sampler like the one Stampin' Up! offered at 2009 Convention. This was part of the piece I had left over. I covered the chipboard with two-way glue and glitter. Super simple and beautiful on the tree.

Have a great week.

Hi Julie...how delightful both these ornaments are! You did a wonderful job with the Prisma colors on the Edwin and Tilda. What a great idea for a super ornament. The Bigz die makes a fabulous 3-D ornament. So pretty with the see through center. Very creative...hugs...Barb (foster mom on SCS)
