Holiday Ornaments - Not one, not two, but four!!

If you haven't seen the ornament on the front of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, you must have been out of the country!  I have seen lots of different blogs with samples of that ornament.  I don't know who designed it (obviously someone at Stampin' Up!), but they definitely hit a home run with this one!

I have had the opportunity to get together three different times to make this ornament.  It's not difficult to do, but it's definitely a lot more fun to make one with a friend!

Here are all of the ornaments that I have made so far:
The one at the upper left is a replica of the original one on the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  And here it is close-up:
(As you can tell, I'm still having some camera issues - sorry for the fuzzy picture!)

This one was made with Crumb Cake and Soft Suede inks and card stocks.

This one is made with Marina Mist and Crumb Cake dye inks stamped onto Shimmery White card stock.

This one is much smaller than the others.  This one was designed by Emma Fewkes and was the first one of any ornament that I made.  (I posted this the other day, so it may look familiar!)

The more I make of these, the more I want to make!  They are so pretty in real life!  You should definitely give them a try yourself - I know you'll love them and everyone will be SO impressed that you made them yourself!
