Hi everyone, it's Day 2 of JustRite week at Stamper's Dream. Each day this week, the Dream Team will be showing different projects using the new JustRite Christmas sets. Today, be sure to visit Charmaine, Laurie, and Michelle for more ideas. (And if you didn't catch yesterday's projects, visit these posts, too: Tosha, Denise, Kimberly, and Michelle.)
My project is a wooden snowflake ornament that I decorated using A Merry Little Christmas Borders & Centers. I love the snowflake saying on this stamp: "Snowflakes Are Winter's Butterflies." After sanding the ornament just a little bit, I covered it with one of the patterns from Cosmo Cricket's Jolly By Golly 6x6 Mini Deck, sanded the edges, then lightly sponged with Ranger Tea Dye Distress Ink. (I used Zip-Dry Adhesive to adhere the paper to the wooden snowflake.) Next I took a chipboard frame and coated it with Martha Stewart snow glitter, using VersaMark ink and heat-and-stick powder. Last, I added my stamped border and center, a silver filigree flower brad by Nunn Designs, and a smidge of striped ribbon.
Here's a detail shot where you can really see the sparkle on that chipboard frame:
Thanks for stopping by! I'll have another JustRite project to share on Friday. In the meantime, here's the schedule for tomorrow ...
