Christmas Ornament....

Many years ago, when I used to do Parchment Craft, I had a lot of stencils that I used to do dry embossing onto papers.  Marianne Stencils had some of the most beautiful designs way back then.  Well today they are still around and have jumped on the band wagon like many other companies, and are now doing Dies!  Well, they are doing some beautiful designs.  I have had the opportunity to purchase one of their dies and I just love it.  The one I am using today reminds me of a doily. 


This little guy is from JustRite and is one of their 3 1/4 stamps.  I stamped it off and scanned in into my computer and resized so it would fit this little die. I used a Spellbinders Die to cut out the image; I have to use Spellbinders on every project I do.  I just love those dies.   I colored with Ranger Distress inks and then used Utee to add several layers of shine to him.  I adhered him to the doily die cut and tied dental floss onto the doily as a hanger.  I was so impressed with how this turned out!  I know it sounds like a lot of work, all that stamping and scanning and resizing, but I just love this image and this is what I envisioned using it, so all that work was well worth it I think. 

This little guy has already found a new home.  My hairdresser is  now in possession of him and he will be on her tree this year.

Supplies:
JustRite Stamps
Spellbinders dies
Marianne Design Creatables
Ranger Distress Inks
Gina K Designs card stock
UTEE
Dental Floss

That is just so different Glenda. It really makes your cute Snowman stand out.
If you don't mind me asking, where did you get your die?

Glenda this is a beautiful ornament. When you do the extra work it always makes you feel good about taking the extra time when it turns out this gorgeous. I haven't seen that die either. Will need to check it out. Thanks for all your sweet comments on my blog.

Hi Glenda! I love all the new things you have done. I spent hours looking for the medallion die and did not find it so I won't look for this one. I love your snowman and your little girls are wonderful!
