A Way With Words Joset Designs Silk Microfine Glitter

All That Glitters!

September 19, 2019

Hi friends, it’s Sandy Diller back with you today to share a fun and easy way to add some glam to your holiday season!

This project is perfect for gift giving or an easy kids activity. Let’s get started making these festive ornaments.

To make these ornaments I started with the clear glass bulbs that can be found in any of the big box stores. If you don’t find them now, it won’t be long before they show up. They come in many shapes and sizes and I have used a variety here. The tops pull right out for filling with your choice of décor.

As shown below – I have used the Beacon Fast Finish Decoupage to coat the inside of the bulb.

You can use as much as you like to coat the inside because what you don’t use will be returned to the bottle for future use. I like to fill mine about half way – cover the opening with my finger and – then move the liquid around until the inside is completely coated. Try not to shake it because that causes bubbles. Return unused liquid to the jar. If you should get a bubble, turn the ornament upside down and the bubbles will slide out. You may have to give it a little shake or tap.

Once the inside of the bulb is coated with the Decoupage Finish – and while still wet – the Silk Microfine Glitter should be added. Once again, no need to be frugal with the glitter as the unused portion will be returned to the jar for another use. Cover the opening and this time you can feel free to shake it until the entire inside is coated with glitter. Return remaining glitter to the jar. Depending on where you live, you may want to leave the lid off the glitter jar and allow some time for the glitter to dry out. I live in Arizona so it doesn’t take long. If you live in a humid climate you may want to set the open jar aside over night.

Using the Flourished Christmas Minis, cut two designs from silver paper and glue to the outside of the ornament. When the inside is completely dry, replace cap and tie a bow on top.

Tip: First add Double Sided Adhesive to the back of the paper before cutting the design. This way you will have a nice clean sticker to add to the ornament.

The process is exactly the same for all the ornaments, decorate as desired.

For this one, Iced Teal Silk Microfine Glitter and the new Snowflake die from Joset Designs was used.

Here Real Red Silk Microfine Glitter was used and another Snowflake from the same set as above. The Snowflake was cut apart so it would lie flat.

Here is an example of one of the beautiful colors found in the Earth Microfine Glitter Pallette. This one is further decorated with the Berry Branch die and Nuvo Drops for the berries. The branch was cut apart for a perfect fit.

I’m really fond of this one because of it’s unusual shape. After adding the Royal Teal Silk Microfine Glitter it became the perfect night sky. Some adorable little houses were added using the Village Edges die and the star is from the center of the snowflake used on the red ornament. The final touch is a stamped banner.

I have enjoyed sharing these ornaments with you and I do hope you will give it a try. I have linked all the products I used below for your shopping convenience.

Until next time – stay crafty,

S@ndy

December 12, 2017
Hi everyone!

The Susan’s Garden Design Team are back today with our final Designer Challenge for the year.

Christmas is now only a couple of weeks away. When people think of Christmas and colors, the most traditional colors that come to mind are the colors red and green. For our challenge this month, our design team are to include the colors red, green and white with either gold or silver on their projects. It doesn’t have to be a Christmas card as these colors can be used throughout the year.

For our Challenge today we are giving away a $20 Gift Card to use on the Elizabeth Craft Designs website to 3 winners. 

To enter, simply leave a comment on this blog post below and answer this question: “What Susan’s Garden products would you like to find under your Christmas tree this year?”

We will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing.

The winners will be announced on Friday, December 15th, here on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.

Now let’s take a look at the wonderful creations our talented Design Team have created for the Challenge this month. For more information about the cards, click on the designer’s name under each card to be taken to the designer’s blog post and will open up in a new window.
