Everything Eleanor & Beauty of the Season Ornaments – Stampin’ Up!

This week, I have been drawing much inspiration from my friend Amy Koenders.  Last week, Amy posted a project where she stamped on ceramic ornaments purchased from the local craft store.  I was spurred on to see what other media would be good to stamp on.  I started by creating this wooden ornament featuring the Beauty of the Season stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

I stamped the image using black Memento Ink, which bled a little on the wood surface, but I found that I wasn’t bothered by the effect.  Next, I colored the image with my Blendabilities markers and added some snow with my Stampin’ Chalk Marker.  I finished things off with a little red bow.  I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out, even if the stamping isn’t as crisp as it would be on paper.

This was my next foray into the unknown… What happens when you try to heat emboss a porcelain ornament?  Well, it turns out just beautifully.  For this ornament, I used the flourish stamp from Everything Eleanor from Stampin’ Up!  I stamped the image with versamark ink and sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I used a small paint brush to eliminate the extra powder that stuck to the porcelain, and then I embossed it using my heat tool.  It took longer to melt than it does on paper, but the end result is really beautiful.  I embellished with some gold foil stars and rhinestones, and VOILA!

I had a lot of fun seeing what would happen if I stamped on surfaces I had never tried before.  I purchased a few other items that I haven’t experimented yet, so stay tuned for the results.  If you like this project, I hope you will pin it to Pinterest for me. You will find a “pin it” button at the end of this post below the supply list.

  1. I have stamped on porcelain/ceramic ornaments using StazOn. You can also find ceramic/glass paints at craft stores. Brush the paint onto your rubber and then stamp (sort of like coloring with your markers). You do want to immediately wash the paint residue off the rubber after you’ve stamped. I’ve also used the 2-way glue pen and added dazzling diamonds to the ornament. Any stamping on porcelain/ceramic, you want to be careful when you stamp down; the surface is slick, so if you use too much pressure, your stamp will slip and slide on the ornament.
