Improvised Christmas ornaments


I made some Christmas ornaments using some of my Hero Arts sets. I only own one HA Christmas set and I wanted to try to improvise to stretch my stamps. I used a brush stroke circle for the ornaments, stamped it twice to make the colors pop more on the kraft background. Then I embossed a cicle and some leaves on top of it. Lastly I used another brushstroke stamp to make a reflection in the ornaments. I also used the Stepping Stone alpha to spell out the word joy. Lots of stamps on this cards. And a small alpha of unknown brand. Pretty happy with the card concidering nothing is really ment for Christmas. Gotta love the stretch your stamps classes from I guess something stuck ;)

I hope you got some ideas how to make something out of something else. There is probably better ways to make ornaments but this is what I came up with. Thanks for stopping by!

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
