Confetti Ornaments for Merry Monday {MM134}

Hi all, me again on a Monday! Crazy, right?! I love that being a featured designer at Merry Monday this month forces me to post on Monday too.   This week Wendy is our hostess with another beautiful holiday challenge:
Ornaments in silver/gray and blue?  Oh my, just a few of my favorite things!  I was short on crafty time so I went with a pretty clean and simple route on this one but still (I think) held true to the challenge:
This is my first time inking up the Dotty Angles stamp set and I am in LOVE!  It provides the perfect look of falling festive confetti doesn't it?  I actually embossed it onto the Smoky Slate cardstock twice.  First with white embossing powder and again (just stamping slight off the first one) with silver embossing powder.  I love this look!
I do not have any of the current ornament stamps from Stampin' Up so I made my own using a retired set called Ornament Keepsakes and the coordinating Framelits.  The ornament was stamped first and then popped up an added detail to the center.  The silver ornament was stamped with Versamark onto Silver Foil paper, embossed with silver powder and cut with the ornament framelit.  The Pool Party ornament is just stamped with PP ink on PP cardstock and the center is embossed on Silver Foil paper with Pool Party embossing powder.  A few silver embellishments in the Silver Ribbon, Frosted Sequins and [retired] silver cord and that was all it needed!

I hope you'll stop by and take a look at all the inspiration from the Merry Monday Design Team...there's always fabulous creations to behold!  Thanks for stopping by today, friends!  Be sure to come back tomorrow when I will (gasp!) have another weekday post for you!

This is so pretty - the layout is fabulous with the dots at the time and the lovely white-embossed sentiment is so sweet.
