Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

Today's idea is to make a snowflake ornament with your favorite Christmas stamp
in the center.

I got  this wooden snowflake at Hobby Lobby, but I am sure you can find them in any
of the craft stores.  These were especially nice, because they were already painted white
and the center is big enough to use a pretty good sized stamp.

For this ornament, I painted around the edge with Glamour Dust by DecoArt, Ice Crystal.
Then, before it dried,  sprinkled  Stampendous Vintage Glitter, Champagne Glass for extra sparkle.
When it dried, I lightly sponged the edges with light blue die ink.
I traced around the center part of the ornament lightly with a pencil, then cut the shape out and stamped
on the shape I cut out, to later be glued to the ornament.  I colored with copics and sponged with
die inks.

Don't forget, you can click on any of these images and get a closer look.

Christmas Puppy - CL275

I used  Polar White flower soft on the hat.  The snow is
created with  Stampendous Fran-tage Chunky White Embossing Powder (FREG021)
I sprinkled it lightly onto the finished piece where I wanted it and
heated it from underneath so it didn't blow all over the place.  Do small
areas at a time.  You can also do this with regular white embossing powder.
I dotted some areas with an embossing pen then embossed with the same EP.
Rhinestones were added to the points of the snowflake.
Green stickles on the bow of the package.
A gold bow and gold cord for hanging completed this snowflake.

These were such fun to create and make nice gifts for Children and Adults alike.
You could even add a name on each one.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.  Until later............
