LAD November DT Challenge

Hi there!

I am here today to share the November Design Team Challenge from Lizzie Anne Designs. This month we were challenged to create a wreath, using this photo as inspiration.

Gorgeous, huh?

Here's what I came up with - I used the hot air balloon stamp from Warmest Wishes, the new December 2010 Mix Set!

I stamped the balloon four times in each of my selected colors (I went for the rich holiday jewel tones :). Then I used a 1-1/2 inch circle punch to punch out the portion used for my ornaments. I scored each of the circles down the center and adhered them together to create a three-dimensional shape. I lined the edges with a gold paint pen and added a punched ribbon bow for the top. I adhered my ornaments to a scalloped circle and then to my wreath. The wreath is approximately 5-1/2 inches in diameter.

Here's another photo - this was hard to photograph!

Isn't this a fun project, just in time for the holidays!

  1. It's beautiful! What a great idea to make the ornaments 3D.

  2. This is gorgeous, Anya! Love the dimension you achieved by stamping multiples and adhering them! Very cool way to use that particular stamp!

  3. OH WOW ~ this is so cool! I love the 3D ornaments!

  4. Love how you used the balloon stamp for this project. The dimension and how you linked each section is very clever and unique. Those colors are wonderful, too!

  5. Bonjour,

    C'est très très beau, autant les tons que l'idée d'associer les boules entre elles.
    Bravo !
