Lovely as a Keepsake Ornament

Hey Stampers,

Well, November Stam CLub is tonight and I am SO excited !! Nothing better than a night out having fun stamping, chatting and having a lunch !! LOL I really wanted to use the fabulous Ornament Keepsakes bundle, but I had a hard time deciding which card to use !! The set and framelits are so beautiful and versatile ... its hard deciding on just ONE project to make with them !! LOL. I can up with one that also uses the Lovely as a Tree set, and I really love how it turned out ... take a look !!

Isn't that great ?!? Firs ti i took the fir tree from the Lovely as a Tree set and inked it up in Old Olive. I turned it sideways and stamped on my Whisper White to make it look like the branches of a Christmas Tree ... love that look !! Nothing like finding another use for an already well used stamp set, right ?? The sentiment from the More Merry Messages set was also stamped in Old Olive ink. I then stamped directly on the paper the smaller ornament (and my personal favorite from the Keepsake Ornaments set) in Night of Navy ink. The larger ornament was stamped in Riding Hood Red onto a scrap piece of paper and ran through my Big Shot with the Holiday Ornaments framelits. Then I popped it up on some dimensionals. I used the 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon in Real Red and (retired) Night of Navy to add a small bow to the top of each ornament. Love that skinny ribbon !! A couple of Rhinestones, and its done !! So beautiful ...

I dont take pictures of the inside of cards often, but this one was so lovely I just had to !! Love that tiny branch and ornament in the corner, don't you ?? And of course the lovely verse is also from the More Merry Messages stamp set. Beautiful !

Well, thats my card for today. I hope you liked it !! If you want to make some cards like this, let me know ... I would love to have you at one of my events or for you to have a workshop of your own !! Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Stamping !
