Welcome to Week 2 of our 12 Weeks of Inspired Christmas Creations and today we are BLINGIN' it on, with some great new products and a couple of our favorite Inspired Stamps Sets (1 inch Circle Sentiments and our 1 inch Snowmen, both found at the Inspired Stamps online store HERE).  I have more finished projects below...

Today I used the following items from Epiphany Crafts and Inspired Stamps:
Let me show you how I made the items I created:
See the blackened circle on the stampset's carrier sheet above?  It is a solid clear stamp that allows you to match whatever color background you need like this:

I used Crystal Blue from the CTMH stamp pad for the background on this circle then stamped WARM WINTER WISHES on it in black:

You can also do this with different colors, like red.  I used a sponge dauber to ink up the edges on several of my pieces before using adhesive tape runner to glue the circles into bottle caps or the disk jewelry pieces:

Then I added the self-adhesive clear discs to the tops:

Here are some project ideas using this great new product:
In place of tags on your packages...
 On your cards...

As Jewelry...
