A Colorful Christmas with Jen Chenick (Part 2)

A Colorful Christmas

Garden Girl Jen Chesnick is back with us today sharing another color combo and project!  Today's is a playful mix of rosy pink, sky blue and leaf green.  Who knew these spring-y colors would make such a beautiful palette for handmade ornaments?!


Over the course of our series a Garden Girl will share a color combination, special project and either a tutorial or video walking you through the steps.  They've also created a mood board with the products that inspired them.

A Colorful Christmas with Jen Chesnick

From Jen, "Hi Peas!  Today I have a really fun and simple project for your tree or gifts to be given! I used the wooden doilies by Maya Road for my base, but you could use any medium really. 

Jenny's Mood/Inspiration Board:

1.  Guava Rose Ribbon  2.  Silhouette Leaf Green Vinyl   3.  Green Stamper's Big Brush Set  4.  Antique Pink Banner Rub On Set

5.  Everywhere Lost & Found Brads  6. Iridescent Blue 3 Pc Glitter Set   7.  Green Polka Dot Screen Printed Album

8.  Vintage Round Pearl and Heart Pins  9.  Dot Pattern Turquoise Green Pale Blue Washi Tape Set


Step 1- I started by painting the wood on both sides and letting dry. 

Step 2- Using my Ali Edwards stamps I embossed right onto the wood. Don't worry about it being perfect because the other elements will cover a lot of it. A large background stamp is also nice because you can emboss them all at once. 

Step 3- Using your crop-a-dile punch holes for your ribbon to hang the ornament. I finished my hole with an eyelet to keep the twine from snagging. If you want to hang something from the bottom also punch that hole. 

Step 4- Decorate! I layered die-cuts with some dimensional stickers from Snow Day by Pink Paislee on mine. 

Step 5- To finish up add the hanging element if you choose and you are all set! "




We hope you enjoyed today's project!  Looking for more?  See all color combos and projects!

We'll see you tomorrow with our final project!
