Glitter Queen's Blog Hop Day 2 Winter theme

Hello Papercrafters,

Welcome to Day 2 of our Glitter Queen's Blog Hop!  It's so nice that you have stopped by for day 2, I am so inspired by yesterday's fabulous goodies I can't wait to see what everyone has for today, unfortunately I will not be able to see day 2 and 3 till I get you are reading this I am on my way to Sonora, I am a chaperone for my daughter's 6th grade camping trip :-) we will be back on Friday late afternoon,  I will be anxious to see what has been shared on days 2 and 3 as well as comments!  On Saturday I will announce my winner of my blog candy!

For today I have some sweet ornaments I made using the 'Color me Christmas' set from the mini, I had originally planned on making 5 using all the images in the set but the constraints of time, work, and preparing for the camping trip, I only got 3 made......the other two I will save for a future post.  I stamped my images on a watercolor paper and I used my acrylics to color them in, of course our SU markers or copics would work equally as I was brainstorming this idea I thought the images would work great on the rosettes, now I made mine by hand using dsp cut at 1 1/4" x 12" then score every 1/4"....but if you have the rosette die for the big shot  that is so awesome and makes it so much easier, but I have many other goodies on my wish list that take priority over the rosette, lol, perhaps there is one in my future!
I wanted to add some bling so I decided to use the silver glitter paper,  oh my this is another of my loves.....this paper is gorgeous and makes your projects just pop beautifully. 

For the reindeer and the present ornaments I added a sentiment to the back using the 'Christmas messages' set, but for the tree I just put a tree on the front and back.

Here is the reindeer:

Here is the present:

Here is the tree:

And the group together:

I'm just missing the stocking and the santa but will work on those when I return...........I hope I've inspired you to make some of your own ornaments, I think they look fabulous and I can't wait till I get to try them out on our Christmas tree..........they would actually make a great gift, in fact I think I will make a set for my mom :-)

Thank you for stopping by, don't forget to follow and comment, blog candy may be in your future!
I will share more about that tomorrow...........please come back by I have another 3-d project to share!

Have a wonderful day!

That's the end of our hop, thanks for stopping by, and now back to Dawn........


  1. these are more than beautiful! Perfect for the Christmas tree!

  2. I LOVE these. I'm seriously thinking about getting that set.

  3. Such pretty ornaments. I make my rosettes by hand, but the die sure would be useful to have. Enjoy the camping trip!

  4. Great idea, especially for an ornament exchange!
