If you make ornaments, we found out that it was best to use the non-irredescent balls - can see the image inside better.
This ornament is made with the City of David Stamp set - and two acetate images have been rolled up and inserted into the ornament ball. They were stamped on the acetate in Black Staz On ink and then colored with Sharpie markers.
Close - up (in can stand instead of on hanger). One of the images is Joseph and Mary on donkey. The other image in the background is the city of Bethlehem. The filler on the bottom is pellet type "snow" or the kind of stuff that holds flowers upright in a vase.
This City of David ornament is CASED from vmaduzia on splitcoast. See her ornament here
Directions for how to make ornaments are on splitcoaststampers under Resources.
From Season of Grace, heat embossed in gold.
My favorite - for some reason I have decided I like camels.
From Come to Bethlehem stamp set.
Season of Grace stamp set.
From Holy Triptych stamp set. We decided the pellet "snow" looked best with this angel. This ornament turned out really pretty, we thought. Again, as others above - stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.
This ornament also CASED from vmaduzia on splitcoaststampers.com. She her ornament here.
This is an unpolished Porcelain ornament. Edges sponged in Night of Navy (I think) and stamped with the Dasher stamp with same ink. Very easy. These ideas came from hmlopez. See her gallery on splitcoast to see other variations. Here is here copy of this one above.
Same ornament, but stamped in red ink.
Strips of designer series paper from Stampin' up! Twirled in a spiral around a kid's paint brush handle. The strip and spiral on the bottom show more detail about what is inside the ornament. This CASED from
Joan Gross on Stampin' Connection dated 10/12/10.
Below is another way of using the designer series paper in the ornament. This takes longer 12" strips rolled into a coil (vs. spiral as above). Takes more to fill up the ornament because the coils take up less space than the spirals. This CASED from kimber_327 on splitcoaststampers. See her ornaments here.
This ornament CASED from 33 Rubberduck. See her ornament on splitcoast here.
CASED from vmaduzia. See her ornament here. This makes a "snow globe." See tutorial under Resources on splitcoaststampers. Stand is a pop top fruit can (small, like in a six pack of fruit) covered with cardstock. Stamp set is Merry and Bright stamped in Staz On, colored with Sharpies.
Not sure where this stamp is from.
Believe this stamp is from Snowburst ...heat embossed in white. A fluffy kind of snow is used in this ball.
Below are two other items I bought to experiment with stamping on. The first is a kind of cardboard oval ornament. Stamp set is Dasher.
And this was actually glass. I thought it plastic at first, but realized later when I was heating it to emboss the image onto it that it was glass. Stamp set is Come to Bethlehem - heat embossed in white.
