Default TLC42 - Glass Ball Ornaments

TLC42 - Glass Ball Ornaments

These are the ornaments with the acetate inserts. So beautiful and so easy! I first learned how to make these from the ever-talented Vickie Maduzia.

I *just* uploaded my example as of Monday morning 10am-ish, so it is pending....
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...86897&cat=3949

Here's how:
· Safety Note: These glass ornaments are fragile and will break. Be especially careful removing and reattaching the cap/hanger. The edges of the mouth are particularly apt to break and may also be sharp.
· Draw a 2 ½” circle on the transparency in pencil. (or whatever size you need to make it fit inside your particular glass ball)
· Using Staz-on, stamp the desired image. Be careful to stamp straight down and pull straight up….Staz-on is very “slippery”! Let dry a few minutes. Color on the BACK with Sharpie Markers. [coloring on the front will smear the staz-on even when it is dry!]
· [this step is optional] Apply a small puddle of Crystal Effects to back of the image, and smear it around with your finger to completely cover the back. Sprinkle with glitter. Shake off the excess and let dry completely.
· Carefully remove the cap of the ornament and set aside.
· Cut out the circle carefully along the pencil line. Punch a 1/16” hole at the top. Thread an 5” length of gold cord through the hole.
· With the glittered side of the circle facing up, tightly roll the circle up like a sausage. Be sure the glittered side of the circle is inside the “sausage”.
· Holding tightly, insert the sausage into the ornament, holding onto the cording. When the sausage gets inside the ornament, it will pop open! Thread the ends of the cord through the holes in the cap and tie. Reattach the cap.
· Tie on a big length of organdy ribbon for a pretty bow, and add a cording loop for hanging on the tree.

As always, if you have questions, please ask. If you have suggestions, please share!
When you upload, please put TLC42 in the keyword section when you upload, and then post a link to your card here in this thread.
If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us STAMPIN' !!

I don't have time to stamp today, but I'll try to upload a few more samples from my class.

Yippie!!!! Your challenges are so timely. Sunday I picked up a package glass ornaments and was going to give this a try today. Can't wait to get started. DD just woke up, doubt I can convince her to go down for a nap this soon. Maybe it’s time for a video?!

I can't wait to go home and try this tonight! I cleaned all weekend, no stamping... (at least we got the tree up finally..)

I have 6 of these glass ornaments sitting around, that I got on sale (60% off) at Michaels a few weeks ago.

That's too bad. I got mine at Accents. I also got a dozen a couple years ago at Always 99. That was a great deal, but they were small. I got the last package & one was broken. I've also seen them at a place called Banner Crafts (don't know if that's a chain). The store used to be a Ben Franklin.

A lot of the dollar stores have them, but they sell out quick.

Wow, those are really gorgeous! I don't have any glass ornaments since the kiddies are so into breaking stuff....I can't wait to go through all the ones posted though!

I'll probably just force myself to do another cracked glass instead this week, lol!

I hope I can make time to join in on this one, but I need to finish my Christmas cards first!

Where can I find acetate? Would Wal-Mart or Michael's carry it? Would those plastic report covers work?

If you can't find the clear glass bulbs buy the colored ones. If you soak the bulb in 1/2 bleach and 1/2 water solution the color will come off of the inside leaving you with a clear glass bulb. I did this with the colored ornaments I bought last year at wal-mart's when Christmas was over and everything was on sale!

Also, this is fun to color in with pearl ex and future floor wax. I don't have many sharpie colors but I have lots of pearl ex colors

I bought a box of clear glass bulbs 2 or 3 years ago and still haven't used them. This inspires me to bust into that box!

I just bought alot of the clear bulbs at Michaels for 50% off. My brother got me a bunch in TX last yr at Michaels for 60% off....so I'm set for awhile. But try Michaels if you have one close by.

Default My Submission !

Well here is one I did last year -

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...54170&cat=4180

I haven't made any this year - Xavier has been tearing the breakable ornaments off the tree. He broke a NY Giants one
- FOR THE LOVE OF GOD BOY - NOT THE NEW YORK GIANTS ONE! THE ENTIRE SEASON IS ON THE LINE - WHY WOULD YOU GO AND SMASH A GIANTS ORNAMENT.

Sorry - I digress. I had an entire box of these ornaments....Can I find them now - no - they were packed with all my stampin stuff in the move...

I love this project and enjoy seeing all the different creations ! I've made dozens of these - but I use paint. I found clear glass ornaments at Lowe's last year. This is one I posted last year:

These look great!!! I made one a few years ago with pics of the kids printed on the acetate! They love their pictures being in an ornament!

This brings up a question.......if you use the transparencies that you can print on from the computer, do you think you can use regular ink since you don't have to use something special on the comp??? Hmmmmmm, I may have to try it! hehe!

I didn’t think I had any glass ornaments but thought I’d look through my boxes. I found one and started looking through my stamps for a design to fit inside. I took a close look under the flowers that were attached to the top only to find a blown glass with no way to open it.
I told my husband I was bummed about that and didn’t want to buy more ornaments and he said “so you don’t have to do the challenge”. That boy’s cold has definitely gone to his head!
So I found an alternative and

Here it is!

So technically this isn't a glass ornament, but I wanted to play (forgive me Beth )

I don't have any glass ornaments, but I do have white stazon, acetate, and glitter -- so I made a shaker (there's even ribbon )!

Here's my card:

Dumb question here! What is acetate? I have heard about it and seen it used, not sure what is though. TIA Taishea

Acetate is a clear plastic sheet. SU sells it as Window Sheets. You can buy these at Walmart (10 for $7) or any office supply store (usually larger packs).

The best kind to stamp on seem to be the multipurpose for laser & inkjet printers, because one side is rough, and therefore, not so slippery.

You need to use stazon ink.
