Day 2 of Holiday Stampin'!
Yesterday was a shopping day - so is today the day to decorate your tree? If so, you are going to love making this beautiful ornament to hang or your tree OR give as a gift! I took a regular glass bulb purchased from a craft store and added some fake snow inside. I then took some Flashing Tape and ran that thru my Big Shot with the Cheer Decorate Strip Die. (NOTE: Be sure to lay the silver side of the tape face down on your die!)
I then cut apart the words and removed the backing and adhered this to the OUTSIDE of my bulb.
Next, I stamped my dove image on some acetate with BLACK STAZ-ON ink and after the ink was dry, I used my COLUZZLE to cut a circle.
I then smooshed my stamped image (face up) in my VERSAMARK ink pad and covered it completely on the back side. I added IRIDESCENT ICE embossing powder and heated (carefully!) with my heat tool. I layed this on a piece of color cardstock so that you could see how it looked.
I then punched a hole in the top of the acetate circle with my 1/16" Punch and inserted SILVER CORD. Added the cap back to the bulb and silver organdy ribbon tied in a bow. Awesome - don't you think?
