Microscope Slide Ornaments, JustRite!

Good Morning!  Here we are on Day Three of JustRite's October Release Previews!  Have you enjoyed the sets so far?  Today I created two microscope slide ornaments.  Another super simple creation that looks fabulous on a lighted tree! The twinkling just dances off the glass slides and silver frames!

For my first stamping, I used the new Embroidered Background Stamp with white craft ink on a lightweight scrap paper. (More about where the scrap paper came from in my next post)  I laid one of the glass slides onto the dried stamp area and lightly outlined before cutting out.  Easy!  Gotta love that! 

The red stamping is on Webster's Pages Girl Land Designer Paper using images from another new JustRite set, Friends Antique Labels One.  I trimmed those images and cut them again to fit the slide size.  The stamped images are sandwiched between the slides and held together with the silver frames I purchased at Michaels.  Atop the silver frame is ring that allows the easy attachment of ribbon bows and silver string.  Simple embellishing and there you have it!  More of these ornaments are in my future!
