Adirondack Acryllic Paint/Ornament Topper

Wow! I can't believe it's August already! I'm still playing with Posy Techniques but I had to stop and play with some NEW Ornament Topper stamps coming out in the next week or two. Here's a sneak peak at our New Jewel Topper. This topper was designed to decorate with Swarovski Crystals, which looks blingy and dynamite! I wanted to try to use less crystals without loosing the great look, so I tried Adirondack Acrylic Paint by Ranger. It comes in 12 colors, which I'm sure we'll have to carry now! I chose Wild Plum for its vibrant, pretty color. These paints create a pearled look that goes well with this Topper.

The tip of the container has a needle nose tip so it's easy to squeeze and fill in the circles, creating a dimensional look and holding it's shape when it dries.

Another good alternative to crystals is this great technique using Glossy Accents. We demonstrate it online to make flower centers, but it would work well with this Ornament Topper. Follow the steps for 3 - 5.


  1. That is so beautiful! Just wanted to say I LOVE your stamps. I'm going to add your blog to my blog list. I'm glad I found you!
