Trimming the Tree...

Good morning! Welcome to another blog hop for Papertrey Ink! We have some ornament inspiration for you today. First up are the new What the Doodle: Ornament stamps and dies! I used the two-layer dies to create the ornament and also used the greenery from this set as well. I stamped it and colored it in with a green Copic marker.
The sentiment is from this set also, it's stamped on a Tremendous Tags die, then trimmed down a bit skinnier to fit. The berries are from the new Holiday Greens stamps and dies. I created this as an ornament to hang on a tree, but I think these would be gorgeous on the cover of a mini book, or as home decor as well!

Merry and Bright Ornament:
STAMPS: Holiday Greens, What the Doodle: Ornament
INK: Pure Poppy, Lovely Lady, New Leaf
PAPER: Holiday Plaid, white
DIES: Holiday Greens, What the Doodle: Ornament, Tremendous Tags
OTHER: twine, seam binding, resin frame - Melissa Frances.

The second ornament is made with Vintage Ornaments II and What the Doodle: Ornament.
These Vintage Ornaments are multi-step, so you can add more than one color to them! So pretty! I started with the dark outline and then filled in the pieces with the other stamps.

Love and Laughter Ornament:
STAMPS: Vintage Ornaments II, What the Doodle: Ornament
INK: New Leaf, Spring Moss, Simply Chartreuse, Pure Poppy
PAPER: Holiday Plaid, white
DIES: Vintage Ornaments II, What the Doodle: Ornament, Tremendous Tags
OTHER: twine, seam binding, resin frame - Melissa Frances, Copic markers, sequins.
Next up are the new Stitched Ornaments: Classics dies (middle snowflake) and Stitched Ornaments: Sequins dies (pink background). These dies will cut the holes and the shape of the ornament. I didn't make a traditional ornament, as you will see on Nichole's blog with Erin's video, but I decided to make flat ones instead utilizing a big snowflake die!
The large felt teal snowflake center is made with the Stitched Ornaments: Embroidered die. I just stitched certain holes to create my own design. Behind the felt centers are Fancy Flakes dies, then I used Rustic Cream Button Twine as hangers at the top.
Here you can see the stitching up close. A bunch of these would make a cute set, don't you think? Or hang a tiny tag on them with a sentiment and use them as gift tags!

Felt Snowflake Ornaments:
PAPER: white
DIES: Fancy Flakes, Stitched Ornament: Classics, Stitched Ornaments: Sequins, Stitched Ornaments: Embroidered
OTHER: Rustic Cream button twine, white floss, Tropical Teal and Sweet Blush felt, sequins.
