Christmas is only 33 days away – can you believe it? And in the spirit of preparing for the season, this week’s Saturday Spotlight on Hidden Potential, sponsored by the Cutting Cafe, is all about ornaments.
Here's this week's challenge: Make your version of any type of ornament...doesn't have to be just for Christmas...any kind!
For my first ornament, I colored in the snowflake from the ‘All About Christmas’ set via the free Paint.net and then printed it out on vellum. A couple of circle die cuts and voila – a gift tag that is also a memento to hang on the recipient’s tree. The vellum image gives a beautiful stained glass effect when backlit by a Christmas tree light.
The second ornament is all about the sparkle – glitter DP, Dazzling Diamonds on the snowflake image, and even glitter pen accents on the center snowflake!
Sparkly items are so difficult for me to photograph their true beauty (it's much better IRL when you can play with it in the sunshine!), but here's a more detailed photo of all the bling:
