Outlines is "Hanging it Up" this week!!!

The Outlines Team is hanging it up this week, all of our projects have to hang.... no cards! Outlines has a huge range of Ornament Toppers and also Jewel It stamps that make for super easy templates to create your own holiday decorations.
Play along with the Outlines Team for a chance to win $25, check out all the details on the Outlines Blog.
See what the gals came up with today:

I altered this Ornament Topper slightly, cutting it down from it's original size and using a smaller portion... putting a few Spellbinder's Picot Edge Circles in the mix.
 Here are all the pieces I used. I heat embossed all the stamped pieces with detail gold EP. I used a heavy weight white shimmer and red shimmer card stock.
 Here are the pieces as they start to come together. I used Glossy Accents as my adhesive, as it hardens when it dries and added a little more heft to my ornament. The two large gold Picot Circles I glued back to back, tucking the gold hanging cord in between them. I aded a white Spellbinder's circle in the middle. You can see the layers coming together.
 Here is the finished layered piece... before adding the Swarovski Crystals. Both sides are identical, but with a different sentiment in the middle. Where the red diamonds over hang the circles, I added glue and pinched them together for a more finished look around the edges.

  3. Good Golly Miss Molly - (I told you I was your country friend) this is absolutely gorgeous and now I am gonna have to get these dies and give it a go. Thanks for the great tutorial. This looks like the kind of ornament that would hang in an Atlanta Belle's southern home.
