Trimming the Tree....

Christmas is my favorite holiday!  Pulling out the tree and all the ornaments, always takes me back to being a kid.  I remember all of the traditions that we had back then and it has been so much fun to create new ones with my kids.  Today's group post, for the September Papertrey Ink Release, is all about trimming the tree.  There are some beautiful new sets all about the ornaments.

First up, a card using the new set called Vintage Ornaments II.

I created a tree in the background using Holiday Greens.  Then I grabbed some Pinterest inspired, Vintage Ornament color combos and stamped out these beautiful ornaments.  Last, I stamped the sentiment in black ink.  I also added some Stickles to the centers of the ornaments for a little bling.

There is a new set in the What the Doodle line, called What the Doodle: Ornament.

I took the holly image from the set and created this tag.  I colored in the leaves with Copics and then stamped the sentiment along the bottom in black.  I added in some Pure Poppy Saddle stitch ribbon with some twine and bells.

Last is a new die in the Stitched Die collection.  These amazing new dies create several different felted ornaments.

This ornament is the Sequin ornament.  It was so easy to put together.  I added in some regular stitching in white floss and then attached the sequin with french knots.

I ran a piece of twine through the center of the ornament to create a loop at the top and then used the tails to add in some bells.  I finished the ornament off with a red bow!
