Sounding Joy Ornaments - PPA112

The latest challenge at PPA is all about elements of style.  The challenge was to include lace, any kind of lace, with your project.

I have been wanting to try the glossy white card stock from Stampin' Up!  See how the ornaments shine when they catch the light just right?

I stamped with Versamark on 2 circles punched out of the glossy card stock, then sprinkled gold embossing powder, and watched the magic happen as I put the heat tool to it.  After that, the brayer inked up in Blushing Bride was rolled across each ornament to give it a little color.  I used Stampin' Write Markers to color in the bell ornament.  The background is stamped using Versamark once again.  Versamark makes a wonderful background especially on darker colors of card stock.  The top of each ornament has a 3/4" circle folded in half and a 1/8" hole punched out using my handy dandy Crop-A-Dile.
