Christmas Ornaments

Well, I've been busy the past couple of days working on a few ornaments for gifts.  Yup, I'm definitely a little crazy for taking these on...and I still have way too many to do!  I saw the idea on Splitcoaststampers and decided to make one about a month ago for my Red Hot Stampers Secret Santa exchange.  Of course my ornament die is a lot smaller than the one they used on Splitcoast, but I HAD to try it anyway.  On my first attempt I used vellum paper and a brayer to color both sides different colors.  The vellum was too thick and it kept popping apart so I went through some of my old supplies and found a bunch of  mulberry paper that I had never used.  I had a huge piece of white so I cut it up the right size (enough for 18 pieces...which I cut with one run through the Big Shot!) and went a little crazy with the different colors.  Now I need to get busy making boxes so I can give them away...





Thanks for looking and have a great day!
