Christmas Ornament Series for the Tree

15 Weeks ‘Til Christmas – Holiday Ornament Countdown with Kitchen Sink Stamps!

Today, I am starting a new Christmas series. Every Friday until Christmas, I will have a new Holiday Ornament for your tree. The base medium for each ornament will be the same wooden disks as used in my posts, Make & Take at “Junkie Fest 2018” and Holiday Fishes for the Tree. Wooden disks make a great ornament “canvas”  for stamping on directly and for adhering stamped cut-outs. I LOVE stamping with them!

To start this series off … I have 2 ornaments for you!

Figure-Skates-Christmas-Ornament

Stamps to make this ornament: NEW – Figure Skates Multi-Step Clear Stamps, Holly & Mistletoe Multi-Step Clear Stamps, and Winter Cardinal Multi-Step Clear Stamps (pine branch) from Kitchen Sink Stamps.

For this ornament, I first stamped the ice skates and holly with berries on, Solar White Classic Crest from Neenahafter cutting them with the coordinating KSS SVG cut files. The separate pieces make it easy to loosely position the skates and holly on the wood disk to determine where the pine branch would look best.

  1. Stamp the pine branch (using Palette ink) directly onto the wood disk. Coat pine cones with a Wink of Stella Clear Pen (from Zig).
  2. Adhere ice skates with pop dots. Coat the ice skate blades with a Wink of Stella Clear Pen.
  3. Adhere holly berries area directly to the skates and holly leaves to the wood disk with pop dots. Coat the holly berries & leaves with a Wink of Stella Clear Pen.

Color Recipes for these stamp sets:

Figure Skates

Holly & Mistletoe

Winter Cardinal (pine branch)

  • Pine Branch on wood disk (Palette Inks)
    • Step # 4c – Burnt Umber
    • Step # 2c – Jardin Moss
    • Step # 1c – Landscape
    • Step # 3c – Burnt Sienna

Snowy-Cabin-ornament

Stamps to make this ornament: Snowy Cabin Multi-Step Clear Stamps, Snowy Pine Trees Multi-Step Clear StampsPine Trees Multi-Step Clear StampsSnowmen Multi-Step Clear Stampsand Cabin by the Lake Multi-Step Clear Stamps (chimney smoke) from Kitchen Sink Stamps.

I used the same “game plan” for this ornament as the figure skates ornament above. Using Solar White Classic Crest from Neenah and the coordinating KSS SVG cut files, 

  • Cut out:
    • a small snowman with his top hat on 
    • small pine tree
    • a snowy cabin
    • snow mounds
    • a puff of smoke (or cloud) from Cabin by the Lake.
  • Stamp all cutouts following color recipes from the links below. 
  • Loosely position the cabin and small pine tree on the wood disk to determine where the snowy pine trees will look best behind the cabin.
  • Stamp the “background” snowy pines (Palette ink) directly on the wood disk. Add glitter in the “snow” areas with a Wink of Stella Clear Pen (from Zig).

Next assembling cutout & stamped layers:

  1. Add the snowy cabin with pop dots and covered the roof with a Wink of Stella Clear Pen. [NOTE: I squeezed a bit to hard when using the Wink of Stella pen over the snowy roof and the glitter is thicker than in other places where used on this ornament, therefore making the roof look gray in the photo. :(]
  2. Small Pine Tree: Using pop dots where the small pine overlapped the snowy cabin and double stacked pop dots where the pine tree (left of the cabin) will attach to the pine disk. Add Wink of Stella Clear Pen to tops of branches.
  3. Adhere left side of snow mound directly to the right of the pine tree and a pop dot (right side past pine tree) where snow mound is over the cabin. Coat snow mound with Wink of Stella Clear Pen.
  4. Add the snowman at the bottom directly to snow mound and with a pop dot at the snowman’s middle and head to the cabin behind. Coat snow only of the snowman with Wink of Stella Clear Pen
  5. Lastly, slide the smoke cloud behind the cabin and trim off the bottom if necessary. Add pop dots and side smoke under the chimney.

Color Recipes for these stamp sets:
