Bella Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Bella Birthday Bash Blop Hop sponsored by Stamping Bella! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Bloggabella.

I decided to make an ornament with my wreathabella stamp. Sorry about the photo, but it was really hard to get a good photo of a glass ornament with acetate in the middle ;)





First, I stamped the image on acetate using palette ink, then I flipped it over and coloured the image with sharpies. Copics would work, but I don't have any, and sharpies work too. any permanent marker that will work on non-porous surfaces would be okay.

I punched a hole in the acetate, threaded it with ribbon and used that instead of the metal hanger that comes with the ornament.

Before putting the top back on, I added some faux snow to fill out the glass globe a bit more.



I hope you enjoyed this ornament, and that you will give it a try. If there are any questions, please leave me a comment and I will try to answer them for you.


Three gift certificates for $100 in Bella Bucks will be hidden along the hop, but we’re not telling you where so be sure to leave some love as you hop!!! Make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!! The winners will be announced on Monday, December 7 at the Stamping Bella Blog. MWAH!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to
Brandi - Sparkle Shimmer and Twinkle.
