The Glittered Ornament

Welcome Back!!!

Yesterday over at Stamping Buddies in Cincinnati, Ohio, I taught a class showing how to make a glittered ornament. The ornament is stunning and really makes a statement. Easy to make, just takes a little time. Perfect for a handmade gift for someone special or this will look gorgeous on your tree.

Let me show off the end result.

I used lots of glitter and the poinsettia topper on this ornament is made using the poinsettia stap from the lovely stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle called Holiday Foliage - Set 475.  The glitter colors are Shell Pink G1022 and Parisian Mist G1037 (one of  my favorite greens in the Sparkle n Sprinkle glitter line)

I love the look of the poinsettias that come out during the holiday season in the pinks and other colors other than the traditional reds, so that's why I decided to use a few non traditional colors when making this ornament.

I will be repeating this class over at Simply Said Rubber Stamps  on Sat. Nov. 9 @1:30. If you live in the greater Cincinnati area and want to take the class please contact Simply Said @ 513-833-3852 to reserve a seat.

This class includes how to make a box, to store or gift the ornament. Easy to make, too!!

Boy, I just checked my calendar and Thanksgiving will be here a month from tomorrow. It's late this year (Nov. 28) and that means that Christmas will be 3 1/2 weeks after Thanksgiving, this year. It's going to be a short buying season if you start after Thanksgiving. I have things already bought so I best start to wrap and that chore will be done.

November will be a busy month for me, I have classes or events every Sat. in November. So  I will be busy getting those ready. December I have one event and then I will be taking off the rest of the month. But I will be getting ready to start out the new year with new classes.

I will be back soon with some class samples and a few other things that I will be making.

Thanks for stopping in
