Chipboard Christmas Ornaments

I've got a butt load... A BUTT LOAD!!! of chipboard ornaments to share with you today. So get cosy, and lets look at the wintery goodness.

Instead of using the elements in the new ornament frame sets as a single layered piece, I've used each piece as individual ornaments. I think I might give these sets as holiday gifts. Each set has a different style so it'll be fun to match the personality with the design of these decorative bits.

The first set is woody vintage with muted colours and jute twine.

I've edged them with Twinklets Diamond Dust... because I like to live on the edge and "Danger" is my middle name. Seriously though, this product is crushed glass and you really do need to take care when handling it. But holy heck is it pretty!

I've layered the vintage images with paper cut using Spellbinders® Nestabilities® Decorative Elements “Royal Circle” die, but Alpha Stamps has Chipboard Fleur Doily sets that you could use instead. I like to add a bit of space between the layers by simply using adhesive foam squares.

And instead of filling that framed area with an image, I've created a wreath with a Mini Pine & Berry Garland and Mixed Matte Red, White & Burgundy Berry Sprigs that I've made look frosty with some of the ultra dangerous Diamond Dust.

The next set is sort of a classic Christmas feel. I really like the non-traditional pastel pink and blue and greens of the papers.

Again I've used my trusty die and then just layered the bits with some simple foam squares. Because the ornaments are double sided, this also makes them lovely and chunky.

These particular ornaments remind me of a christmas candy shop.

 I think the chubby bearded guy would approve.

The final set is really sweet and retro.

Again using sort of non-traditional colours... but look at how cheery they are!

I think they're just adorable and would make a darling colourful addition to a swag of greenery or mantle boughs.

 ... although they'd look mighty sweet atop a brightly wrapped present or hanging from a wine bottle too!
