It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas...
Especially at Limelight Papercrafts! We issued a challenge to each of our talented design team members, the Six Chicks, and also our November 7th Six Chick! We asked them to create an ornament and either packaging for the ornament OR a matching card. And, boy, are you going to be FLOORED with what they came up with! Be sure to hop around to EACH of the DT members (look in my sidebar to the right for links) to see what beautiful creations they have for you! :)
I created a glittery photo ornament using the Little Yellow Bicycle Photo Ornament Kit. These are VERY easy to use and yield gorgeous results! And...since I knew that I'd be showing you this today, they are on SALE this week! I embellished with Kaisercraft Red Pearls (how perfect for the holidays...), Christmas Magic Glitter Snowflakes, and a length of grey taffeta ribbon. There are two pictures on opposing panels. You could do more or less, if you wanted to. Obviously, mine are of Cameron and Katy. :)
The card was very fun to make! I used the Christmas Magic Clear stamp set, the same red pearls, some NEW Truffle Tulle ribbon (Yep! Chocolate brown TULLE!), and NEW Shimmerz paint! I accented the stripes on the BG Wassail designer paper with Gold Glimmer Blingz. So shimmery and pretty! :) It's difficult to photograph shimmer, as we ALL know, but if you look closely at the red stripes on the card, you can see some of the light gold shimmer!
I hope you enjoy the ornament hop today. The DT has worked really hard on bringing these to you... I know you will be amazed and, even more importantly, INSPIRED!
