Christmas Ornaments Stampin' Up! Style

Hello again!!  I am in full Christmas mode right now.  Started my Christmas shopping and I plan to be done by the end of November.  My goal is to not set foot in a mall if I don't have to for the month of December.  I like to use December to focus on baking, meal planning, wrapping and cozy nights at home with my family when I can.  

In my post yesterday I mentioned working my upline Denise's Moonlight and Mistletoe Retreat in Niagara Falls a few weeks ago.  I brought my Christmas tree along (first time I ever brought my own tree to a crop) and we decorated it with different ornaments made using Stampin' Up! products.  Our color theme was using Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, and Silver Glitter.   

The first three ornaments I made using components from the Christmas Banner Simply Created Kit.  I love banners but I do not have a place for one in my Christmas decor.  So why not use the components for other items such as Christmas Tree ornaments.  Here are three of the ornaments I made and I still have plenty of the kit pieces left over for other projects.  

This second ornament was a little difficult to photograph as it is 3D in nature.  Using the lattice die in our main catalogue I cut out six lattices per ornament out of our Silver Glimmer Paper.  I used Tombow to glue the Lattice die cuts together.  First I folded each one in half and adhered them together for a 3D snowflake effect.  I then used a piece of Whisper White 3/8" Taffefta Ribbon through the top to help hang the ornament on the tree.  I love Silver Glimmer in these ornaments, they catch the lights on the tree beautifully and you can never have to much glitter.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting my little corner of the blogging world.  Comments and suggests are always welcome.  Enjoy your day!!
