That Ornament!

You've probably seen quite a few samples around blogland of the gorgeous Christmas ornament that features on the front cover of SU's Holiday Catalogue. Having bought the dies for this I was keen to give it a go using designer paper rather than stamped images and as a couple of my ladies were also keen to make one, we had a fun morning together today creating and laughing.

Here's my effort:



I used papers from Be of Good Cheer together with cherry cobbler tulle and some gold cord I had in my stash. The new vintage faceted buttons are gorgeous and add the perfect touch on top.

I had also earlier tried another ornament shape that features on page 4 of the catalogue and here is my take on that one:



This one uses 6 petals rather than the 5 of the larger ornament and for this one I used some retired dsp and the snow flurry die made in silver glitter card and held together with an antique brad.

Here are the other ornaments made today, firstly Maureen's:


Love the large green petals - they really make the cherry cobbler stand out! LOL! And the next one is Patsy's, done in softer shades which I think look just beautiful:


We had such a lot of fun making these and now that I've done one I can see myself making more, they are so addictive! Have you tried one yet?

Thanks for dropping by.

Cheers

These look even better in person, Kerry. They are stunning ornaments and, as you say, making them could easily become addictive!
