Decorating the Tree

 I have a little tree I keep in my stamp room that I decorate for different holidays.  I was trying to get some creativity flowing and while I waited for inspiration to hit I decided to work on the tree.

I cut  the birds out of chipboard using the Big Shot and the Holiday Windows die.  I left some of the birds white and the others I colored with Chocolate Chip or Bermuda Bay ink.  ALl of the birds are covered with Chumky glitter.  They are really sparkly but I was not able to capture the shine on film.  The other ornaments were punched out of the Bride specialty paper using the Ornament punch.  I used 4 punchouts for each ornament scored them in half and attached them to each other.  Here's another view of the ornaments.

Many of the products I used are in the Holiday mini catalog.  Just a reminder that January 4th is the last day you can order from the Holiday mini.   Still waiting for inspiration but hopefully it will strike soon!  Hope to stamp with you soon!
