Friends with Flair Friday - Getting Ornamental

Happy Friday everyone!! Today I'm a chaperone for my son's first grade field trip to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. We're off to see a new exhibit about Mummies, on Friday the 13th EEKS!! How spooky!

I totally love playing along in Unity's Friends with Flair Fridays! Be sure to check the Unity Blog a little later this morning for the full list of stampers who are participating today...

I'm so lucky to have an LSS that caries Unity; Right at Home Scrapbooking, and on a recent excursion for some new ribbon, didn't this sweet paper from Crate Paper jump right into my shopping basket along with Unity's "Embellished Season."

The ornaments are all mix and match, so that you can stamp the ornament and then stamp the hanger. I inked up my ornaments and trimmed them out. The inked the hangers with Versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder for a little extra shine. They are "tied" onto my project with some jute twine and then given lots of shine with my Sakura Stardust pen. The sentiment was stamped to an ivory nestie diecut, and then sponged all around the edges.

But, I hadn't had enough fun yet, so I had to go for another one. For my second card, I stamped the polka dotted ornament to patterned paper, then added lots of glitter to each dot on the ornament.

I actually have several ornaments on my tree that look just like this! Although, admittedly, I hang my ornaments very securely on the tree with those hangery things. With the amount of kids in my house, hanging them from ribbons would **not** be advisable!

Thanks for stopping in today! Have a wonderful weekend!
