Waltzingmouse December Release Hop ~ Day 3



Welcome to Day 3 of the Waltzingmouse December Release Hop!!   

Today we're featuring a fabulous versatile Christmas set called Ornate Ornaments.  I have two projects to share with you today.  

First are these fun little tags.  I had the absolute hardest time photographing these little babies due to the dark centers and the embossed white bg.  So I finally just photographed them on my desk.  

This set has such fun little sentiments to go with go with the word "don't".  I thought it would be fun to make a stop sign shape using a Octagon die (Spellbinders).   I used a die from Creative Page Tabs (Spellbinders) for the top, and a white Poster-Paint Sharpie for the checkmarks.




Here's a close up of the white panel.  I embossed it using a quickutz embossing folder to make it look a bit like beadboard in the bg.




This set has 4 gorgeous ornate ornaments included in it too.  (I have two elegant ornament tags to share tomorrow...which is release day by-the-way....Woo-Hoo)

I chose to make a victorian themed card using the image designed to go with Spellbinders' 2011 Heirloom Ornament die.  Isn't it gorgeous?  I stamped it with Smokey Gray Versafine, and added some crystal glitter to the ornate pattern around the sentiment.  Both sentiments are included in this set too.  It's a very versatile set, as you can see. 




That's it for today.  Be sure to hop tomorrow too.  It's release day, and the team has some fantastic inspirational projects to share with you!!


Happy Stamping!!

Tosh, I always adore your Victorian creations. That card is so very beautiful. I must get some of that colour of Versafine. You always do amazing things with what I would think is a boring colour! The tags are cute, too. Just goes to show how versatile you are -and Claire, too!
