Ornament Obsessions

WARNING: LONG POST, LOTS OF PICTURES.

Happy Monday, Everyone! Hope everyone had an awesome weekend! Mine went by like a blur! I totally forgot what I did already! My memory is so bad these days...

The Holiday is seriously just around the corner now. I have so much to do and so little time! I am totally behind on so many things!

I probably mentioned on my blog before...I love to make ornaments! Each year, I have a different color theme for Christmas so of course, I made most of my ornaments. Ornaments are expensive and to change colors each year, that's way too much for me!

This year, I am using mostly PINK. Thanks to the challenges over at Inky Impressions and Sautrday Spotlight, I am able to get some more ornaments done! Oh, if you don't know yet, head over to Inky Impressions right now! They are having a DT call and will end soon! You can find all the details here.

On all these ornaments (it's actually only three..hehe), I used Inky Impressions stamps. This first one, I call it ORNAMENT CUBE. This actually did not turn out the way I hoped and expected. I wanted to make a ornament note card cube but because the 12x12 paper is not big enough, I changed it a little. I originally wanted this ornament to open to reveal a set of note cards. But since the paper is not large enough, I sealed all sides and added jingle bells in the box. Yes, when you shake it, you can hear the jingle sound..that's the purpose. hehe

On each side, I used a different Inky stamp. On the top of the box, I made a big flower, sprayed shimmer and added stickle on it.




Notice this side? I lost one of the gems. :(

This one I made with an ornament shaped chipboard. This is super easy to make but doesn't have much dimension.
This last one has a a bit more dimension. I used two wooden hearts on this one. Did I ever tell you guys I love everything that is heart shaped? Yup, I do! I always go for anything HEART first! Yeah, I am crazy! lol
Oh, on this one, I used shrink plastic. This is another one that didn't come out what I had in mind. Rachel came out way too small! So I added some beads to it so that the whole ornament would look more balanced.


Well, that's all for now. I hope everyone enjoy looking at my ornaments. I might be making more of these. :)
As always, I do appreciate everyone stopping by and thank you for leaving me awesome comments! Hope everyone is having a fantastic day!
