Frosted Berry Ornament Frames

Glad Tidings to you!  If you have a moment to stop and look, I'd like to show you some ornaments I made as gifts for a few folks.


Couldn't find 'frosted' berries at the craft store in November, so I bought a 6-foot berry garland for half off (it came to $7.00), plucked them off and glittered them myself.


The wooden frames were $1.00 each, and I painted them with shimmery Martha Stewart craft paints.  I really like those paints!  I punched some Martha holly leaves and branches and gathered the frosted berries, then stamped Girl Land Tea Cup by Webster's Pages / Unity on white scrap cardstock.  They were overstamped with snowflakes and sentiments.







Hope you're doing well with your Christmas preparations!



Stamps: Serene Snowflakes - Stampin' Up!; Girl Land Tea Cup - Unity/Webster's Pages Paper: white - PTI; Old Olive, Always Artichoke - SU Ink: Sahara Sand - SU; Versafine Onyx Black - Tsukineko Accessories & Tools: Branch Punch, Holly Punch, Crystal glitter - Martha Stewart; berry garland; wooden frames; rhinestones - Queen & Co.
