Cutters Creek Holiday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Cutters Creek Design Team Holiday Blog Hop! We want you to hop along with us and play for some awesome Blog Candy. The objective for our Blog Hop this weekend is to provide some inspiration to help you get your holiday crafting underway! Our Design Team has come up with some fabulous projects and we have a little bit of everything, from cards to gift ideas, and home d├ęcor items. So we invite you to hop along with us and get your creative juices flowing!

I made two similar projects using some great papers from last year, and Kim has VERY limited stock left of both, so if you like one you'll want to grab it right away!  One uses the Season's Greetings collection from Echo Park Paper and the other uses the Christmas Emporium 12x12 paper pad from Graphic 45.  If you saw my Halloween ornament on the Cutters Creek blog the other day, these are similar items.  They would look great on a large tree, hanging in the center of a wreath, or as a bow on a special large gift.

First up is the rosette ornament made using Season's Greetings:

For this one, I used a Scor-Pal to make simple rosettes in two sizes from two different papers.  I stacked them together using some Cosmo Cricket Glubers, sandwiching a hanging ribbon and some mesh-like gold fabric from my stash in between the layers.  I then used one of the large stickers from the collection, stuck it to some chipboard, and cut it out by hand.  I used some Glossy Accents to attach it to the top layer, then I used some Christmas Red Stickles on all of the little circles around the edge of the sticker.

Next, the one using Christmas Emporium:

For this one, I cut the pieces using my Cricut*.  I used the Center Point feature to cut the center image where I wanted it.  I used an elongated ornament shape to make petals and leaves so it would look a bit like a poinsettia.  I cut 12 petals, 6 each from two different red patterns, and 12 leaves from a green pattern.  I also cut a medallion shaped mat from the same green for my center image.  I distressed all of my pieces, using Tea Dye for the center image, Fired Brick for the petals, and Peeled Paint for the leaves.  I also assembled this one using Glubers, which made it easy to attach the petals and leaves one at a time.  After assembly, I used Gold and Crystal Stickles to make designs on my petals and leaves.

*I used the Artiste cartridge for all of my cuts, but there are several cartridges that have ornament shapes that will work for this effect. You can use mycutsearch.com to search for them.
