Christmas In July

Globecraft Memories has created the most delicious Christmas ornaments. Today I want to share a few with you. today. These delightful ornaments made their debut at CHA. There are a variety of designs and I love them all. I have tons of ideas for things I want to do.

This first one is a beautiful angel. Took the center piece and covered it with embossing enamel adhesive. Then I sprinkled it with copper kettle embossing enamel. I flash set it, then added a second coat and did a full heat set.

 For the top layer, I ran the chipboard through my Vagabond in my Divine Swirls embossing folder. I used a versamark pen to trace the swirls and covered them in the copper kettle powder. I heat set that.

 Next I filled in between the swirls with liquid pearls in a dark blue and let it dry. Once dry, I covered it all with a dark blue Stickles. I then added multiple coats of glossy Glastique. It made such a thick glossy coating. It almost looked like real glass. It added such a depth to the ornament.
 The back globe was painted with the liquid pearls and Stickles. I wish I could send this ornament to each of you to see. It turned out gorgeous.

 This second ornament is also an angel. This one is bowing down to the Christ child. This one was elegant and beautiful as well. I painted the back globe with Chocolate Brown Liquid Pearls. I masked off the outer edge of the middle piece. I used the enamel adhesive to coat the angel, Christ child, star, and hanger loop with 24K Gold Embossing enamel.  Once that was heat set. I painted the outer edge with Jenni Bowlin's Malted Milk acrylic paint.
 The top ring was covered in embossing enamel adhesive as well, and then sprinkled with Mermaid Tears embossing enamel. I flash set and then added a second coat before doing a full heat set. They were all glued together using Glastique which makes a great adhesive as well.

I hope you like the ornaments. They were fun to make. I will share another in the next day or two. I love them. You can head over to Globe Craft Memories and save 25% by using coupon code TS25.
