The Stampman Challenge-An Ornament

Hello everyone. How's your week been? I hope you all staying clear of these nasty bugs that are flying about at the minute and if not that you feel better really soon.

It's time for another challenge over at The Stampman and this time Mrs Stampman herself, Jill, has asked us to make an ornament. This can be anything from an altered piece to an ornament shaped card, so plenty of options to play with.

Here's my DT piece this time and as you can see I opted for a Christmas Wreath using the tattered Florals Die. It was a great way of reducing my pile of scraps and very easy to make.

My DD helped with the cutting of all the florals and then scrunching them up before adding a brad and spraying with mica powder to crinkle them further. I added some stickles glitter when they were dry and then stuck them on a doughnut of navy card, cut out by drawing round two plates.

I added some silver elegant Flourishes cut from another die for a bit more interest and a piece of oddment ribbon to hang it up with. It's now hanging on a cabinet in our lounge and looking very seasonal.

Jill is offering a £10 voucher to the winner to spend on her shiny new website so why not have a go. The rest of the DT have some gorgeous projects to give you more inspiration so don't forget to pop over to the Challenge blog and have a look.

Thanks for stopping by and have a really lovely weekend whatever you are up too.

Gorgeous - love the colours and the tartan bow is just a stunner. I thought you'd used one of those polysterene rings so was pleasantly surprised to read it was made with card - haven't got the same dies but I think I could give this a go substituing with those I already have. Thanks for the inspiration. Elizabeth x

Wow! This is stunning. So nice to see blue instead of the traditional red and white and gold.


A beautiful Christmas wreath Lisa - the soft blue shades are gorgeous, and what a great idea to use the flower die.
Hope you're having a lovely weekend.
Hugs, Sylvia xx
