Ink. Stamp. Share. November Monthly Blog Hop Christmas Tree Decorations

Welcome to the Ink. Stamp. Share. November Monthly Blog Hop as we showcase ideas to help you decorate the Christmas Tree. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their ideas and projects to help inspire you. 
One of my favorite things to do at Christmas is to create unique Christmas ornaments using blank ceramic ornaments that I found at a craft store. For this ornament, I used the cute image and coordinating sentiments from the Have A Hoot stamp set (item #153389) from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog, to decorate the front and back of the ornament. I stamped the image and sentiments using Stazon Jet Black Ink and colored the images using Stampin' Blends Markers. 
Products Used:
Have A Hoot stamp set (item #153389)
Flight Of Fancy stamp set (item #153410)
Stazon Jet Black Ink Pad (item #101406)
Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #154885)
Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #154882)
Cinnamon Cider Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #153105)
Real Red Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #154899)
Seaside Spray Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #154901)
Mango Melody Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #146989)
Creating this ornament is simple but it is also something that should not be rushed. I used Stazon Jet Black ink to stamp the owls image first and then added the sentiment below it. Make sure to plan out your images on the ornament first to make sure they will fit before you actually stamp them. This will prevent mistakes and frustration. After stamping the front, I let it sit for a few minutes to dry before flipping the ornament over and stamping the back with the sentiment and the extra snowflakes from the Flight Of Fancy stamp set. Again, I let it sit for a few minutes to give the ink time to dry. To color the owls, I used Light Crumb Cake for the belly, and eye lids of the owls and Light Cinnamon Cider for the rest of the feathers. Apply the color with a gentle dabbing motion so that you have control over where the color goes on the ornament and it also helps to prevent bleeding by applying too much ink. It also helps to protect the tips of your Stampin' Blends Markers so they don't get damaged. The beak and claws were colored with Light Mango Melody. I used Light Granny Apple Green for the leaves and Dark Real Red for the berries. The branches were colored with Light Crumb Cake and the snow and snowflakes were colored with Light Seaside Spray. I love the vibrancy of the Stampin' Blends Markers for these ornaments. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my ornament will help inspire you to create your own fun projects to celebrate the holiday season. Just think of the variety of stamps that you can use to create your own unique ornaments.
