"Ornate Ornaments": Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week

Hey there, everyone!  Look at me...all on time and everything!  Tee hee!  Tonight we are sharing projects using the "Ornate Ornaments" from the latest Lawn Fawn release.  This is such a fun set, and you can easily go elegant or cute when using it!!

I went for the cute look this time around, and I love it!  I also continued channeling my clean and simple side for this one, and used the Less is More challenge #32- seeing double (use two of the same items on your card).  It also fits the Raise The Bar Challenge #74 to use an all white background.  This is what I created:
"Merry Christmas" supplies: 
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (smooth white)
Paper: GCD Studios (Scandia Jul: scandie bird, hip holiday stripe)
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Ornate Ornaments set)
Ink: Tsukineko (Versafine: onyx black & Momento Dye: london fog)
Jewels: Zva Creative
Twine: The Twinery
Markers: Zig (gray) & American Crafts (yellow)
Glitter: Ranger Stickles
Corner Rounder: Creative Memories

Instructions:  Make card from white cardstock, and round the bottom corners.  Stamp the ornaments, sentiment and stars to the card front in onyx black ink.  Stamp the hooks to the top of each stamped ornament using london fog ink.  Stamp the ornaments to patterned paper, cut out, and adhere to the card front.  Color in the ornament tops with a gray marker, and the stars with a yellow marker.  Add strips of jewels to "hang" the ornaments, and accent the middles with matching jewels.  Tie two bows from light green twine, and adhere to the top of each ornament.  Add a clear jewel to the middle of each bow.  Add glitter stickles to the stars, and then add two more jewels to the end of the sentiment to finish.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the Lawn Fawn gals have come up with using "Ornate Ornaments", including our guest this month!! ♥♥♥

  12. Oh Lea this is sooo sweet! What an adorable idea to paper piece the ornaments and leave the background simple. Thank you so much for joining in on our White After Labor Day challenge at RTB this week!
