LNS Challenge

This week's LNS challenge it to make a 3D ornament and this challenge will run for 2 weeks.  I tried my hand at making the ornament on the front cover of the Holiday Catalog.  I found a great tutorial on PI that Catherine Pooler did on how to make one of these beautiful ornaments, and you can see her tutorial HERE.

For me, this ornament was a fun "learning experience.  Now that I have made my first ornament, I know the second one will go more smoothly as heat guns and I don't get along very well and I ended up with quite a bit of hot glue on my hands!

To make the ornament, you need 5 sets of each ornament - which means you need to stamp 40 ornaments/20 of each ornament.  I found it much easier when I was cutting out the stamped ornaments, to cut the large ornament the same time as I did a smaller ornaments (as shown in Catherine's video).

Here is my version of the ornament; one pic on the tree and other with it hanging by one of my windows:

Stamps: Ornament Keepsakes
Inks: Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green
Papers: Very Vanilla, Be of Good Cheer DSP
Accessories: Big Shot, Holiday Ornaments Framelit Dies, Cherry Cobbler 3-1/2" Scalloped Tulle Ribbon, Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons, Large Pearl Basic Jewel, Cherry Cobbler, Dazzling Details, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz, Simply Scored Scoring Tool, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, Heat Gun with Glue, Multipurpose Liquid Glue
