   Tonight I wanted to share with you some ornaments I made for a Christmas tree I put in my daughters room for the holidays.
They are all made with Spellbinders labels dies and Hero Arts stamps.  The first is made with HA CG210 stamp. I used kraft paper by Bazzill, snow layering paper by HA. The inks used were Hampton Arts in shades of blue, purple and white. The snowflake was embossed with Stampendous! clear embossing powder. The tulle, ribbon and tear drop crystal ( all in blue) are from Michaels. The background die was cut twice to hold the tulle in between, then glued together. Same design is on the opposite side. The eyelet was set to hold the ribbon. A clear rhinestone was used in the center of the snowflake, from Michaels.

    For this ornament I used HA CL401 for the branches and CG226 for the ornament. The ink for the branches is distress ink in peeled paint. For the ornament, ColorBox Chianti and VersaMark watermark was used, and embossed with clear embossing powder. The pattern paper is DCWV Garden Party. The white is HA snow cardstock, distressed with old paper distress ink. I used an eyelet on the ornament to loop twine to "hang" from the branch. The background die was cut twice and glued together. The twine is Papertrey Ink, the eyelet is making memories.

     For this ornament, I used CG102 antique brocade stamp for the background inked with HA soft stone shadow ink. The snowflakes were stamped with VersaMark watermark and embossed with clear embossing powder. The large flakes are HA CG210. The small flakes are HA CL 343, stamped in Memories white ink. I distressed with blue ink and embellished with pearls. The paper is Papertrey Ink spring rain. The ribbon and tear drop are from Michaels. Eyelet was for ribbon.

Thanks for looking!!!
