Inkspirations Christmas Blog Hop!

Welcome to Inkspirations Christmas Blog Hop.  You may have arrived from the amazingly talented CARRIE'S site, but if not, just follow your way around the loop to see all the amazing projects.  Enjoy the Inkspiration!


I have a couple of things to show you, the first of which is a large, clear glass bauble (80mm diameter):-

which I have filled with stamp pad re-inker & glitter (thanks for the cool idea Jenni):-

But then I have taken it a step further, & personalised them for my sister & her family:-

These baubles came in a pretty unattractive cardboard box, so I have made up some clear cylinders to present them in:-

& here's one filled with two baubles:-

For ages I have been wanting to make an easel card & recently circular ones have started popping up in blogland!  I thought a circular one would look perfect as an ornament & I will be using these as the place setting cards for our Christmas table:-

Our colour scheme this year is purple, silver & white, so I made some matching bon bons (filled with "daggy" purple Christmas hats, yummy chocolates, little purple trinkets, some corny jokes & the all important "snap"):-

Here's a close up of the sentiment on the bon bon (I love this stamp!):-

This final idea popped into my head when I was making the placecards - a Christmas pudding easel card, with a silver spoon resting on the plate to hold the pudding section of the cards upright.....  Hmmm?!

I hope you enjoy these projects, I haven't listed supplies today, but if you would like any details or instructions on any of the above, please email me or leave a question in the comments.  Thank you.  :)

Have a Merry Christmas Everyone!
