Learn How to Use Vertigo Surfaces to Create Ornaments

It’s almost time to start decorating the Christmas tree and in preparation for this fun family event, I have started making new ornaments. Inspired by the color of the month – Frosted Blue – I thought it would be fun to create an ornament or two using Imagine’s Vertigo film paired with Imagine’s various mediums in lovely shades of blue.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 30 minutes + dry time


Step 1

Die-cut 3 hearts in 3 different sizes of any given shape. I am using Xcut hearts both in scallop and plain. I used 3 different styles of Vertigo film – (large to small) – Prism, Taffeta and Tilted.

Step 2

Rub a thin layer of Blue Hawaii StazOn Studio Glaze over the medium size shape and let dry.

Step 3

Once the glaze has dried, spread a second layer of Cotton White Studio Glaze over Blue Hawaii. Sprinkle a generous layer of Iridescent White Flitter Flakes over the glaze. Let the glaze dry then shake off the loose flitter.

Step 4

Affix the medium size heart to the large heart.

Step 5

Rub Blue Hawaii StazOn Ink to the outer edges of the small heart.

Step 6

Sponge Paradise, Blue Belle and Medieval Blue VersaFine Clair ink on a piece of white cardstock.

Step 7

Die-cut several small snowflakes from the inked cardstock.

Step 8

Use a brad to attach desired snowflakes to the center of the ornament.

Step 9

Attach jump-rings and any additional embellishments as desired. Make a hanger for the ornament from blue wire using jewelry tools.
