At the end of the blog hop, go back to Suzanne's blog and list all the stamps
used this week on everyone's cards to win a grand prize.
I wanted to do something other than a card for this blog hop and I came up with this idea after seeing another website that had used printed photographs inside of these types of ornaments. I figured why not stamp something on transparency instead? I think Quietfire Design's Christmas Phrase stamps are perfect for these! These are really easy peasy! I have had these clear christmas bulbs from the dollar store several years and I woke up inspired to use these today. I simply stamped the Christmas Phrases onto transparency film in Stazon Black ink and let dry. Then cut out around the stamped phraseI rolled up the pieces and popped them in through the opening of the ornament. Then I applied Alcohol Inks (colors used: Cranberry and Lettuce ) with a felt applicator and voila! On the one to the left, I also put in some fake snow! Pop the top back on and tie a pretty ribbon at the top and you are all set! I think I just may use these for teacher gifts this year :)
For these ornaments I used these stamps from Quietfire Design:
Have a Holly Jolly Christmas
Tidings of Comfort and Joy
***I have had several questions about whether I did the alcohol ink on the inside OR the outside! I applied the ink to the OUTSIDE of the bulbs with a felt applicator. Sorry-should have stated that :)

It felt good to get some done-another bad week. I had something happen on sunday that has left me feeling REALLY hurt. I have had to work through these feelings. Doing a little better now, but still feeling very discouraged. Good thing I have art journaling to turn to!
