Waltzingmouse Stamps Sneak Peek: Ornate Ornaments

And here we are, the third and final day of sneak peeks for the December 1 release at Waltzingmouse Stamps!  It has been a fun few days and I hope you have gotten into the holiday mood just a little bit…I know I sure have!  Today I’m sharing a few fun and festive projects using Ornate Ornaments:


I had a ton of ideas when I first saw this set because, lucky for me, I own two sets of the Spellbinders dies that coordinate with these stamps!  In the end I went with something fun, bright and funky to shake things up.  I love using non traditional colors for Christmas. 

My card was stamped along the bottom using the chevron pattern from Off Beat Backgrounds.  I then stamped the ornament and added polka dots in the white space with a green gel pen.  The raised and glittered effect is hard to see in the photos, but it's really fun and funky in person:
 
 
My second card is a pink version of the same design:


I used a red gel pen for the ornament and a white gel pen on both cards to make the ornament appear as if it were hanging down the card.


Kinda reminds me of peppermint candies for Christmas!

Thanks for joining me today and for the lovely comments you've been leaving on my blog.  I read and appreciate every single one!  Make sure you check out the other ladies today for more Christmas inspiration:
