InStyle Stamps November Blog Hop - Ornaments

Hi there,

Welcome to the November InStyle Stamps Blog Hop!! This months hop theme is Ornaments.

When I was younger I used to decorate glass ornaments so I decided that I would use up some more of those glass ornaments that I have just kept stashed in the closet. I printed Sandy out on normal white cardstock. I tried to print her out on acetate paper like a tutorial on SCS says to but my printer is an InkJet and Sandy just got smeared and the coloring didn't look that great when using Sharpies, so I printed her out on white cardstock and cute her out. Problem solved!!

Enjoy!!!!





Now head on over to Melissa's blog to continue your way on the hop. If you didn't come here from Janelle's blog then either head on over to the InStyle Stamps Blog to start at the beginning of the ISS blog hop or follow these links:

Love that little image. It's incredible how you get them inside the ornament! (BTW- My acetate project didn't turn out either.) TFS

This is so pretty! Your colouring is great! I really must find some of those glass baubles so I can make something like this for the school christmas fayre. Been tryig to get some for about 2 weeks but can't find them anywhere. I will keep looking though because if mines turn out half as good as yours, they are sure to be a hit at the fayre :)

Very cute ornament! Great way to get around the smearing acetate ~ I haven't tried to print on mine yet, because I'm afraid I'd have the same problem. Love your sparkly snow and that stitched ribbon!
