UStamp with Dawn and Friends! Up on the Rooftop Blog Hop!



Welcome to the UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! Up On The Roof Top Blog Hop!! Holiday 2011.

If you have been following the blog hop from the beginning, you should have just come from Mercedes' blog and seen her beautiful rosette. Isn't it just gorgeous?  I love the way she created the poinsettia!

If you are just jumping in on the blog hop, no problem, as you can start at any point. All of the designers' blogs are linked together, so you will be able to see ALL of the super projects we have for you!

I chose to create a Christmas tree ornament. Wouldn't this just be a great gift? Every time the recipient looks at it on the tree, they'll think of you! :)


I created the ornament using just a clear glass ball ornament, covered in Metallic Silver Waffle Paper. You'll want to sit down with your favorite movie or show for this part! :)

Here's a close-up of the ornament:


Don't you just love those sparkly snowflakes? I was pleasantly surprised to see that even though it's a Sizzlit die, the Northern Frost Decorative Strip Die will cut through the thicker Silver Glimmer Paper! And I just love the font in Hand-Penned Holidays!

Here's my matching card:


Cards are so much more fun with a coordinating inside and envelope, don't you think?
