It’s an exciting day!!!

Holiday catty promo

Welcome to the first day of Spring!!! And the first day of the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalogue!!!! It’s always exciting when a new catalogue is released. And this one just has so much lovely stuff in it. I have to say I was really impressed with it when I first saw it.

To celebrate the new catalogue, I wanted to share with you my team swap that I did recently. I was inspired by a demonstration from the US Convention by Pam Morgan of the Flurry of Wishes stamp set and matching punch.

So I started with the medium sized stamp and used White Staz-on to stamp out the image. I went with Staz-on as my craft ink takes forever to dry. I then punched them out with the Flower Medallion punch. Repeat 15 times. Yay!!

I then punched out the larger flurry from the punch in Silver glimmer paper. Have I ever mentioned that I love bling and silver glimmer paper? hehe. I then stamped and punched lots of the smaller flurry in Pool Party ink. I used 4 flurries per ornament. To assemble them, I folded 3 in half, then using the fine tip glue pen, glued each side together and then glued the three to the remaining flat flurry. Once they were all done, it was just a matter of assembling the layers together.

I used the new Softly Falling embossing folder (which is just lovely) and added more glimmer paper and a banner across the bottom. To attach the ornament, I punched two small holes using my 1/16″ hole punch and threaded through the silver cording trim and tied a bow. So once Christmas is over, the lucky recipient can take off the ornament and keep it to put on the tree next year.
