Glittered Mini Ornaments
I bought this Penny Black pine branch stamp last year and never got around to inking it up. So this year I was determined to get this stamp inky, and I ordered some Christmas Ornaments #02 - Mini from Creative Cuts and More. I ordered these mini ornaments cut from tacky tape, which meant that these ornament die cuts will be sticky on both sides.
I peeled the wax paper off just one side of each ornament and poured some Martha Stewart glitter on them. After I stamped my pine branch, sentiment, and sponged the edges, I peeled the wax paper from the back of each ornament and stuck them down on the cardstock. Quick and easy!
The layers needed a little extra distressing, so I used the Torn Frames technique from Technique Junkies on the white and brown layers. I love the contrast of this rustic, tattered feel with the elegant, glittery ornaments.
