A little FaLaLa, HoHoHo, Snow and...

all rolled into one!
It's tutorial time at...
In the spirit of the Season known for decorations
I thought I'd present to you an ARTishtic Ornament.
The Vision....
utilizing my new Snowflake embossing folder & Cuttlebug,
an empty acrylic snap together ornament from Hobby Lobby...
and the red rubber stamp...
To cut the "perfect circles" I used Creative Memories
small circle template on the outside with the red blade.
lesson learned...cut first THEN emboss. much better in that order!

Stamp and color...I'm doing each step in duplicate
so that no matter which side you view the ornament there will be art!

I use the Creative Memories cutter again- cutting the bears into "coasters" and then from the snow hills up used scissors to cut around the stamp edge. For added dimension I then mounted the colored and glossed bears onto the embossed snowflake circles using 3-d tape.
(note~ the flakes have been tinted with blue chalk)

Can't have rolling snow hills without snow...
"let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!"

Place the double-sided
Here Comes Winter by ARTish bear circles
on the ornament ledge...

the 'tea cup' view...
Repeat the blizzard on the other half,
snap together, and commence to singing Christmas tunes.

Far warmer than shoveling the snow...


How many more to cover a tree?
*None, if I take the Charlie Brown approach!
There are several Pixie Cottage Stamps
and multiple Digital Images by The Pixie Cottage
that would be fantastic for creating ornaments like this one.
Happy Creating,
and an early Merry Christmas,
