Christmas Ornaments

I used the pretty new CZ Design/Simon Says Stamp Ornamental stamp/die set from Simon's 
Fun and Festive release and made a couple Christmas cards!...
I love the ornaments of this stamp/die set...what fun!  The snowflake stamps to stamp onto the ornaments are my favorite decorations of the set, so although the set comes with other wonderful decorations for the ornaments, I only used the snowflakes! What can I say...I LOVE snowflakes!!   I stamped the acutual ornaments with versa mark and silver embossed, then die cut.  I colored them with my Prismacolor markers, let them dry for a while, then stamped the snowflakes on with versamark and silver embossed.  I colored the tops of the ornaments with a silver inked pen.  I layered the ornaments and added to an embossed striped panel with the die cut "Merry" sentiment and another from the new Tiny Words stamp set.  Here's a close up of the ornaments...
Here's a close up of the die cut, layered, shiny silver merry sentiment...
Then, I did the same thing, but hung the ornaments from one of the new Words on a Line sentiment die cuts!  I used an old embossing folder for the snowflake background, and some silver thread to hang the ornaments from.  I DID have to put a hole into the tops of each ornament...I did that with my Tim Holtz retractable pick.   
I love the silver snowflakes!!  I used my Prismacolor markers for these ornaments, like the first card.  Here's a close up...
Then a second close up...
Ok...this was great fun...I am loving silver and gold this Christmas with my cards...so fun and festive:)!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  1. WOW Lisa, these are all beautiful. The textured background really show off the beautiful baubles. I ALWAYS love silver and gold on my Christmas cards, oh and a bit of glitter, of course. LOL
    Well done.

  3. I don't think there is a font big enough to express the WOW I feel at seeing these incredible cards, Lisa!! The colors, dimension, and texture are textbook worthy, if there were a textbook to teach us these things!! ❤Hugs, Darnell
