Fast & Fabulous Friday - Ornament?

Good Morning, Stampers!

Today's Fast & Fabulous Friday goes along with a challenge on Shelli's blog SO SHELLI
for the month of January.
The challenge was to step out of your comfort zone and try to create something new. Well, this is what I came up with:
I always find it difficult to come up with new uses for products except for what they are intended for. I am SO not an "out of the box" thinker! In this case, I used the Vintage Ornament Decor Stencils (117580 $14.95) from page 32 of the Definitely Decorative brochure to create a card perfect for a wedding, Valentine, Anniversary or "Just Because". I also incorporated the oh-so-yummy Red Glimmer Paper (121790 $3.95) from page 7 of the NEW Occasions Mini Catalog.

The Decor Stencils are so simple to use! I created this card in less than 5 minutes!

1. Using the 1st layer of the stencil and a sponge dauber, sponge Peach Parfait into the stenc

2. Add a second color, Regal Rose on top to highlight.

3. Use the second stencil layer with a dauber & Rose Red.

4. Using your markers, add color to the sentiment stamp. Here, I highlighted the "love" in Rose Red and the remainder of the sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink.
5. Punch a heart in the Red Glimmer Paper.

6. Add a red ribbon knot with a glue dot.

7. Mount panel to card.

Wish me luck!

Happy Stampin'!
