Two More Entry's for the Die Cuts R Us "Leftover" Challenge - Use your Christmas leftover paper to create new Projects. Cool Ornaments, and a Unity - Non Christmas Card
"Some More Leftovers"
Two more Entries into the Die Cuts R Us DT
So if you saw my Post yesterday afternoon I decided it would be fun to play in Die Cuts R Us DT Challenge this week which was to take your leftover Christmas Paper and make a new Project with it. I did that and actually made a Christmas Card. Then this evening I was thinking why don't I try some Non Christmas Projects using Christmas Paper???
So I sat down and started working and what I came up with was 3 Christmas Orniments that would be great for Teacher Appreciation Gifts and a totally non Christmas Card using my new Unity Stamps. This is my first ever Unity Card and I am thinking I might use it next week and repost it to play in Unity's Friends With Flair Blog Hop because I really like how it came out.
So Here is Entry #2 into this challenge #1 was my Card I posted on Friday.
Christmas Orniments/ Teacher Gifts????
The First Picture shows all 3 orniments that I did. I found most of a 12 x 12 piece of Wassiling Christmas Paper by Basic Gray and I just had to use it because I adore this pretty paper!!!!
So I took my Large Scallop Circle Nesties and cut out the largest circle on NeeNah White Paper and then I took my #39 Copic and traced around the embossed edges of the Card Stock. I took my Wasseling Paper and cut out 3 of the next size down of the Scalloped Circles and then I glued that onto the White Matted Back with Glue Dots.
Now I used a Ton of Glue Dots in my House so I always have quite a few of thos round Card Board rings that the glue dots are wrapped around so I have been meaning to use them and these orniments are one of my ideas. I did not put a Scalloped Circle on the Back of the orniment because I knew the edges would just get smashed!!! I did take dark burgandy ribbon and run it around the edge of the card board ring to Dress it up as you can see below!
Above you can see all three parts to the Orniment the Finished product to the left the orniment all made up minus the ribbon around the edges. and to the right the one with the Glue Dot card board ring not wrapped in ribbon yet. I use a lot, lot, lot of Glue Dots at my house they are my primary adhiesive of Choice!!!!!
I attached the glue dot ring to the Scallop Circle of the Orniment by putting 4 glue dots around the edge on and then it stuck right to the Orniment!!!! Yea!!!!

Now For Project #3 for the Challenge. My first ever Unity Card!!!!
I took my Sentiment and the Hot Air Balloon from my December Kit of the month and I had a lot of fun with this!!! I stamped the Hot Air Balloon in Black Momento Ink and then colored in the Pattern on the Balloon with Copics in these colors:
R81, R83, R85, R39
The Sentiment I stamped up with SU! Purley Pomigranite ink which is also what I used to distress all over the card. Then I distressed the edges of the cut out sentiment with Black Momento Ink.
Here is a closer look of what that Wassil Paper looks like isn't it just so pretty??? Love all those different colors and patterns!!!
And Here is the Bow which is Deep Burgandy in color so Burgandy I had to Lighten this picture up a ton just to get the Bow to show up in pictures!!! LOL!!!!
