Challenge Your Stash-Christmas in July

Our Hostess for July is Carol, and she challenged us to make a Christmas card OR Project.  OK, well, as I am sorting out my craft room, I pulled out this stamp and it is in the sell box.... I decided to get it out and USE it!

 This ornament is 2 sided.... I had to stamp the image 10 times....I did not stamp the entire image as I got into the smaller areas.  I fussy cut 8 of the layers.... : )  The image is made by Holly Berry House.

I started with the back layer- covered it with Barn Door Distress Ink. On the edges, I outlined the edge and added Poppy Jasper glitter by And, I am very sparkly : )

 I painted Iridescent Medium on the top of the next layer. Next, I added glue and Oyster Art Institute Glitter. The next layer is the one with the hearts- I added glue to the hearts and Poppy glitter. The top layer has Iridescent Medium, and a decorative brad from Spare Parts/Paper Studio.

I repeated this for the other side- and did I mention, there is a layer of dimensionals between each layer. Once both layers are complete, add dimensionals to the center of one of the backs, and a layer of glue all around the outside edges. Place the ribbon down flat after folding down in half and use Sticky glue dots multiple times- where the ribbon meets the paper, in between ribbon layers and on the other side too. Tie a bow and I put a sticky dot to the back of the bow and attach it to the ornament.

The CYS group can be located here.  List mom Barb had the brilliant idea- lets use our stash items- with a monthly theme, I am sure finding no shortage of items to use in my creative space for this challenge...!!! Even those in the 'get rid of' pile.......

Wow! This is just fabulous Shelly. Wouldn't it be lovely to have these hanging all over your tree in different colors. I'm sure it would be a lot of work, but so worth it. If you're still of a mind to put it back in the sell box, let me know how much you want for it and send it along! Hugs, Maggie
