Pretty Ornament with Honey Bee Stamps

Hello Stamping Friends!

This is my second post of the day, so be sure to see my post below as well!!

It's my day once again to post on the Honey Bee Stamps Blog!!

I am excited to share this creative card with you!  I hope you enjoy!

I thought it would be fun to create me own stamped ornament using some of the tiny images in some of the Honey Bee sets!

I started by taking a thin piece of printer part and die cutting a circle from it.

I wanted to use the negative piece, which will turn into my ornament!  I used painters tape to hold the stencil I created in place.  I also decided I wanted to leave a section empty from a design, so I could add a sentiment to the ornament as well.

I then grabbed some awesome stamps!

I decided I wanted to use the pretty swirl from the Thanks stamp set!  I also decided to use the cute little heart from the Cherish stamp set to use between a few of the swirls, to add a little more interest!
 A this point I was already getting very excited!!

Here's a picture of my ornament all stamped up!!
As you can tell I decided to create the ornament elegant and stick with traditional Christmas colors!

Here is another look, but this time with the "celebrate" sentiment added as well as some gold stars!
Both the sentiment and star are part of the Life Right Now stamp set!!

I finished the ornament up by deciding to take a black marker and trace around my circle template.  I could have left it as is, but decided I wanted a definite edge to my ornament.

I also used my marker and a ruler to add "string" from the top of the ornament!

Now for my finished card:
Isn't it beautiful?!

I really love how it turned out!!  

Here's one more look:

Just image all the beautiful ornaments you could create!!

I'm so excited to create more cards like this in the future!!
