Hello it’s Melissa Vining here from Queenstown New Zealand!  I’m so excited to be with you on Day 11 of Honey Bee Stamps 12 Designers of Christmas!  I’m a huge fan of Melissa’s stamps and I was thrilled that she invited me to join in the fun!

I was sent the “Let it Snow” and “Joy to the World” stamp sets, and the sentiments on them were perfect to embellish some handmade ornaments for our Christmas tree.  I used an ornament die by Sizzix called “Festive Bird” and cut the ornaments out of white cardstock.   I painted them with my water colours in two shades of the same colour, and then embellished with the gorgeous Ice Chip Glitter (that you can also purchase in the shop) and finally I stamped my sentiment.

I decided to paint the ornaments fresh non-traditional colours, starting with my favourite girly pink!

For the blue ornament I stamped three separate phrases.

As a committed Christian I love that Honey Bee stamps includes faith products.  I created this yellow ornament to remind my family why we celebrate Christmas.

Thanks so much for looking and thank you Honey Bee for this opportunity to create with your beautiful stamps!  Have a wonderfully blessed Christmas!
