Technique Tuesday "Joy" and "Wish" Ornaments

by Judy Cantrell
I made these for Rubber Road Adventures zine. They were published this month.

The best prices on the Internet.

TH Alterations Carved Ornaments dies by Sizzix \
(I used TH Carved Ornaments available in 2010, this is what is available now)

TH Alterations Movers & Shapers Magnetic Dies “Joy” “Wish” by Sizzix

TH Distress Stain by Ranger

TH Distress Clear Rock Candy Crackle Paint by Ranger

Vagabond tool by Sizzix

Mat board (Hobby Lobby)

Ribbon (my stash)


1)    I used my Vagabond tool to cut the carved ornaments dies using file folder and mat board.

Designers Note: The 14 pt. file folders I use makes a very nice base for my crafting needs.

2)    Place the magnetic dies “wish” and “joy” inside of the carved ornaments.

3)    Run the carved ornaments dies through the Vagabond tool.

4)    Remove the ornaments from die.

5)    Place ornaments on craft sheet.

6)    Apply distress stain to color ornaments. Heat set to dry.

7)    Open Clear Rock Candy; take out a quarter size amount of clear rock candy out on craft sheet.

8)    Use paint brush to apply clear rock candy over the front of both ornaments. Let dry until crackle finish.

9)    Add adhesive to apply mat board cut images to crackle finished ornaments.

10) Tie a ribbon on top of ornaments to finish.
