JustRite - Last Minute Gift Ideas - Christmas Ornament

Good morning! Today JustRite Stampers is having a Last Minute Gift Ideas Blog Hop. I don't know about you but I am always looking for quick last minute gift ideas. I can't wait to see what all of the JustRite Stampers Design Team Members have been busy creating! A list with links to each blog can be found at the bottom of this post. For as long as I can remember we have had a tradition in our family to give each other a Christmas ornament before Christmas so we can enjoy it throughout the holidays. For my project I created a Christmas ornament that I will be giving to my mom. My mom loves cardinals so I knew I wanted to use the Christmas Treasures stamp set from JustRite to create a Christmas ornament for her. There is a beautiful image of a cardinal by a bird house in this set. Here is a picture of the entire stamp set.Here is a close-up of the image with the cardinal and the sentiment.I found this cute little cone shaped tin ornament and and picked up a few pine sprigs, pine cones, berries and a bird. Now you don't have to know anything about floral design to create this, it's very easy! You just need a few of these supplies and a glue gun. To start cut a piece of floral foam and glue inside the cone.Next take the pine sprigs, pine cone, berries and bird and fill in the cone and set aside. Then I stamped the image of the cardinal from the Christmas Treasures stamp set and colored the image with Copics and then cut out the image.I also stamped the image on another piece of cardstock and colored a little of the image so when the two images are layered the bottom layer will appear to be colored too. Next I used the Standard Circles Large S4-114 die templates from Spellbinders to cut/emboss a circle. Before removing from the die template I inked the inside edges.Then I layered the colored image using foam squares to add some dimension. I added a craft stick to the backside of the diecut so I would be able to add it into the arrangement in the ornament. Here is the finished Christmas ornament. I also added some liquid applique' and red stickles to the image, pine cones and berries.Supplies~
