Snow Dolls Ornaments

Hi Everyone! I'm soooooo glad its Friday! What a week, I can't wait for the weekend.
I'm so happy to finally be using my new Snow Dolls stamps from Hero Arts. When I saw these stamps, I just had to have them... and I don't even make Christmas cards!!!! Who knows, one day when I'm old and gray, I will probably be making Christmas cards... I don't want to be thinking to myself, now why didn't I buy those cute Snow Dolls stamps when I had the chance? hee hee.
So, since I don't really make Christmas cards, I decided to use them to make ornaments. When I first started searching the blogs, I was happy to find the Dandelion Designs Blog. Jean has such great ideas and is so nice to share them with the crafting community. (Did I tell you that I credit her with getting me back into stamping?) Anyway, I found a cute ornament she posted on her blog. Instead of stamping on the ornament itself with Staz On, I decided to just decorate the acetate that the image is mounted on. To give it some texture, I ran the acetate circle through my cuttlebug folders. I love how it came out! On the one with just snowflakes, I used stickles for some bling.
Here's the other doll I made...
These were really fun to make. As soon as I saw the snap ornaments at BF, I knew what I was going to do with them. I hear you can also roll up the acetate and slip it into a regular glass ornament and adjust it with your tweezers, but I haven't tried it that way yet.
Hope you have a great weekend!
