10 Days Until Christmas!

I can't believe there are only 10 shopping and crafting days left before Christmas. As you can see I'm still making ornaments. I have another simple ornament to show you how to make this month. These are quick and easy. Perfect with so little time left before the holidays!

I found these ornaments at Michaels. You stamp the image on the ornament with Stazon ink. Stamp gently as the ornament has a glossy surface that is a bit slippery. If you make a mistake, just spray the ornament with stamp cleaner and wipe off immediately.

Here I used "Merry" from Rubber Romance. You can get her here. While you are in the etsy shop checking out Merry, take a look at all the new Divas! Fabulous gift to give yourself or perfect stocking stuffer for your favorite stamper.

After the ink dries, color the image with markers. I found Sharpies worked best for this.

I added some stickles for sparkle and some Kaiser adhesive pearls.

Add cording to hang the ornament from and a bow for decoration. You are now ready to hang it on your tree or give it as a gift.

Here is a second sample using different colors. On this one I added a bit of liquid applique to her collar and hat. It puffs when heated with a heat gun and looks fuzzy and soft.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my tutorial! Hope you all have a wonderful holiday season!
