Here are the instructions I gave my Stamp Clubs (this was one of the selections this month):

Ornament

Experiment with a piece of typing paper to find the size that best fits in the glass ball ornament. I used CM's Circle Cutter; Coluzzle works well, too.

Cut an acetate or window sheet circle in the size indicated by experiment. Leave a "tag" on one end (it will look like a lollipop).

Stamp on acetate with Staz-On (dye ink will not work). Let dry.

Turn over and color with Sharpies (dye ink markers will not work). Let dry.

Use brush to put a THIN coat of Crystal Effects on the side you just colored. Gently pour Dazzling Diamonds over the CE. Let dry.

Remove ornament top. Gently roll acetate into tube (roll so the glitter side faces IN, not out) and insert. Use glue dot to adhere tag to "lollipop" top of ornament, cut away excess. Put top back on.

Tie a ribbon bow on topper.



I'm sure I must have gotten the instructions from someone here at SCS, but it could have been through my upline. HTH!

Here are some using the re-inkers;

Her (Ronny) directions are in the 4th comment down -"I just squirted some reinker in the ornament and swirled it around until the entire surface was covered. Then let it sit and drip into a paper cup for about 10 minutes. The last step was to put glitter in and shake."
Here are a couple more;

Here's a speedy one...

Remove the cap from the top of the glass ball; shake a can of spray adhesive. Stick the nozzle of the can into the opening at the top of the ball; depress the button a couple of times (short bursts of adhesive). Remove the nozzle from the opening and add a half teasoon or so of glitter into the ball. Place a folded piece of facial tissue over the opening; with your index finger over the opening, shake the ball well to coat the interior of the ball with glitter. Dump excess glitter into a container. If more glitter is desired in the ball, repeat. Replace the cap on the top of the ball...and you're done!

Pearl Ex or a combo of PE and glitter can be used rather than glitter, if desired.

spray adhesive for me doesnt work as well as using the mona lisa gold leaf adhesive. Its in a little bottle, dries 100% clear....

pour in, empty out the excess and turn over to let dry to almost clear (directions are on the bottle) once you get to that point, it will stick to anything... glitter, embosing powder, gold leaf etc..
