Nicecrane Design Ornaments....

I am feeling so much better today and I believe that the skin under my nose is finally starting to heal...yeah! Since I do feel more human, I decided it would be good to renew my relationship with the elliptical machine again....SO stupid! 
Funny that I thought the flu was trying to kill me. Let me not get started on that death machine...
Anywho...
I was able to shuffle myself into the craftroom this weekend and decided that I would have a little play with Ignacio's latest images Funny Christmas Ball I and II.
They began on Silhouette cut rosettes
and then for some idiotic reason I thought learning origami at 4 in the morning wouldn't be taxing at ALL on my brain...  Let's not go there either!
But lookie here, I did it!  I would recommend a full 8 hours of sleep and perhaps actually finishing one cup of coffee before starting, but if you'd like to make these as well...here's the link.
HINT: They give you instructions on how to fold paper to make the beginning hexagon shape...I have a cutting machine that cut one out for me and then I varied the sizes for small, medium and large.

Each rosette is double sided and layered with an ornament ball.  


The foliage and pinecone are made from the TH Tattered Pinecone Sizzix Alterations. Papers are from 7 Gypsies and all colored surfaces are with TH distress paints.
The files are so much fun to play with. Ignacio makes each sheet the with the perfect amount of layering circles and it's up to you how you'd like to decorate them. I think these will be going on some gifts this year.
Thanks EVER so much for visiting me!
Hugs n' Happy Crafting,

Psst...also this...

How you manage to put everything together like this is beyond me. Give me the same material and ask me to assemble it all and I'll make a mess. Very impressed by your artwork!

Aw Twang you sure know how to make a crafting experience unique. LOL I thought we had decided that those exercise machines were better suited as clothes racks naughty girl. ;-) The rosettes with the images and those awesome stars, oh and don't forget the pine cones...fantastic!!! Hugs! H

Lisa sorry to hear that you have not been feeling well. For some reason your posts are not coming up on my reading list. These are brilliant. You have marvellous talent.

I did not know you were sick -- I was not absent because you are contagious, I was absent because I am behind!! I believe it is called
noassatitis!

Dang gone Lisa, you are so very talented!! Love this lid!!

I have to admit, I am somewhat intimidated by being on the same Christmas blog as you - but I am so tickled too! Just imagine, you and me - pals!!
love,
Sandy xx

OK this time you done it now you are going to have to do a tutorial on how you folded you stars, inquiring mines what to know!!! Please!!! I love Ignacio's images and you did an awesome job with them. You also did amazing job with your pinecones. I really like these ones I love how your decoupage them by layering all the layers. These are wonderful!
