By: Jennifer Willis, Artistic Guide

This week Jennifer brings you a beautiful fabric stamped ornament to adorn your Christmas tree. Follow along with Jennifer and find how surprisingly easy it is to create this work of art!

Supplies:
Stamps:
Poinsettia Stamp (Inkadinkado)
Inks:
Versafine ink pad - Black (Tsukineko)
Other:
Fabric Scraps - Red and Green (Found Items)
Glass Ornament - Clear (Christmas by Krebs)
Ribbon and Trim Scraps - Red and Green (Found Items)
Seed Beads -Gold (Club Scrap)
Ancient Gold Embossing Powder - Enchanted Gold (Ranger)
Alcohol Inks - Cranberry, Currant and Meadow (Ranger)
Glue Stick (Scotch)
Diamond Glaze (Judikins)
Scissors (Fiskars)
Heat Gun (Marvy)

Directions:

  1. Stamp the poinsettia image on the fabric scraps two times.
  2. Neatly trim each stamped image out, removing the leaves from the red images. Set the images with the heat gun.
  3. Piece the flowers together gluing with the glue stick. Add a drop of Diamond Glaze to the centers and add a few gold beads. Set aside to dry.
  4. Remove the top from the glass ornament and pour a few drops of the Cranberry ink in.

  5. Swirl the ink around inside the ball covering about one third of the uncolored area. Place the heat gun to the opening of the ball and dry the ink.

  6. Repeat with the remaining two inks, swirling each around the inside to cover all uncolored areas, blending the colors where they meet. A blast of air from the heat gun should be used to help the inks dry quicker.
  7. Pour a pile of embossing powder on a flat surface and dip the ball, in a randomly manner, into the powder. Tap the ball gently to remove any loose powder and heat with the gun to set the powder.
  8. Attach ribbons and trims, with Diamond Glaze, around the neck of the ornament and allow to fall down the sides.
  9. Attach the poinsettias onto the ornament. Replace the top and hang on the tree.

Enjoy sharing!

  1. Now I know how to dry that darned ink on the inside of the decoration - I'll be all sorted for next year! The fabric embellishments are such a wonderful idea too. Thanks.

  2. This is postively yummy! I need more time to try all the lovies that the Questies are creating.
