Trimming the Tree

Despite the post title, I am not trimming the Christmas tree this early.  But I thought I'd share with the Crafty Secrets November Linky Party a couple of photos of one the ornaments I made last year using one of my most favorite Christmas stamps from Crafty Secrets.

 I wanted an antique engraving look, so I stamped this sweet little bird in Memento Rich Cocoa ink on Rustic Cream cardstock from PTI. Then I framed it using an ornament from Hobby Lobby.

I was excited to see Hobby Lobby had these ornaments again this year, and when they were first on sale a few months ago, I bought some so I can make more of these vintage ornaments for trimming the tree and a few packages.

This is one quick-to-make elegant project.


  1. Very pretty! I love Crafty Secrets Bird images SO much! Great idea! Thanks for playing along!

  2. Hi Cammie, your ornament is adorable and elegant and I love that little bird to. I'm sad that stamp set is sold out now but as a Digital Art Set all the birds are bigger.
    Thanks for joining our Nov Linky Party.

  3. What a GREAT idea!! I think I'm going to have to try this myself.
    Thanks for linking up with us for our challenge. Hope to see you again soon:)

  4. WOW what a beautiful idea Cammie! And yes, this is one of my favorite sets too! Thanks for the awesome inspiration! Happy Day to you!
