And appearing as herself... the ornament!

Yes, I did it! I DID IT!!!! (The crowd goes wild!)

After owning this punch for 6 weeks, I finally used it for its intended purpose and made AN ORNAMENT. (actually two) (uhmm… if you require full disclosure, I made two plus an extra top for the “ball” ornament)

And looky there – I used the snowflake sizzlit die as snowflakes too. This didn't take much creativity, but I have to admit, I like the results!

Want the details?

• More Mustard paper sponged with Really Rust and Bravo Burgundy for the ornaments and the top card layer.

• The NEW champagne mist ink brushed on the ornament tops. (This WONDERFUL ink can be purchased from the mini catalog through Jan 4, 2010)

• The ball ornament is the 1 ¾ inch circle punch with the “extra” top from the ornament punch.

• Second layer of card is Bravo Burgundy and base of card is More Mustard.

I suspect that eventually I will find still other uses for this little rascal, but for now, it is time to set it aside and play with someone else. I don't want any of my toys tools feeling neglected.

Happy Friday!

P.S. I'm almost famous! I won a challenge on a yahoo group and my reindeer tote will be the artwork on their group page for about a week - see it here-->>  StampinUp Late Night Stampers  Woo hoo!

P.P.S.  I am posting the Butterfly Blog Babes Tutorial tomorrow!

You know, you continue to amaze me with your creativity, and I KNOW how creative you are. I am so busy casing what you do, I don't have time to create anything on my own, lol. Thanks again for a beautiful card, my friend.
