Now on to my project!….. Click any picture to enlarge

I’m using the smaller of the two beautiful ornament images on the new Ornaments set. You’ll notice that these ornaments fit perfectly inside the Spellbinders Heirloom Ornament dies! That’s because Spellbinders chose ODBD as a Preferred Stamp Partner!  What does that mean? ODBD will be expanding their lines to include perfect match sentiments, Scriptures and images to Spellbinders dies. Pretty exciting!

My ornament was gold embossed three times on vanilla card stock in order to layer the center of the ornament.  It was colored with markers and a water brush, the base ornament was die cut with the Spellbinders die and the other two centers were layered on top. The dk green/gold dot dp was cut with a Labels 10 die and all layers were edged with a gold leafing pen. The sentiment was also gold embossed and hand cut. A sheer ivory bow was added on top of the ornament. The finished card measures 4.25 x 5.50.

  8. I am just awestruck with the beauties I am finding in this blog hop. I just think this is the prettiest image ever. I think I may just HAVE to do some shopping for me. And I was so trying not to do that !!
    Love your spectacular work, Julie.

  9. Beautifull designs.
    My favourite Christmas memory …difficult question as many to choose from. One favourite, my Dad set up the card table in front of our beautifully decorated Christmas tree, and we had homemade meat pie followed by Christmas pudding or cookies (cookies were my choice as I don’t like pudding). After, we would head off to church for the service where many Christmas hymns were sung — my favourite, Silent Night.

  10. Beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing it with us.

    i am in awe of the talent of every stamper in the odbd line up. each one is absolutely gorgeous. you ladies are truly gifted. thank you for sharing your talent. i have so many Christmas memories many of them bitter-sweet. on Christmas eve 18 yrs. ago our daughter was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. she had been getting very ill every morning so the drs. started her on large doses of a steroid that day. the next day, Christmas, was the first time in many weeks that she didn’t throw up all morning long. it made Christmas for an 8 yr. old, and us, so much more blessed and enjoyable.

  59. Love the gold embossing. This is a beautiful card with the gorgeous color combination. The layering on the ornament is lovely. Awesome!!
