7 December 2012 – Candle Delight!

At the recent Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt event held in Brisbane, there was a gorgeous table setting display by a fellow demonstrator, Jacqui Crouch, using the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set and matching Holiday Ornaments framelits.

It was a setting to die for!!  I loved the candle that she had decorated so I took a few photos and got a candle and whipped it up!!

I made 8 petals for the base and attached each petal to a chipboard circle using my trusty hot glue gun.  I then cut 3″ pieces (or 3 scallops) of Crumb Cake Scalloped Tulle Ribbon and glued it between each petal and then the centre of each petal.

I then made a belly band to go around the candle using the Delicate Designs embossing folder.  I sponged it with Crumb Cake and cut out the scallops by hand.  I attached it to a Cherry Cobbler band and put two rows of crochet trim.  I used the Snow Flurry die to create the snow flake and sponged with Crumb Cake.  I then used the Boho Blossoms punch and added a large pearl in the middle.  See?  Easy Peasy!!

27 October 2012 – Blue Christmas

I have been having great fun making different ornaments.  I have also been having fun with the glue sticking to my fingers!!  Just one of the hazards of the job, I guess!!

I love all the new framelits that are in the Holiday Catalogue, espeically the Holiday Ornament framelits.  I have found that you can cut 4 layers of DSP at a time, although less with cardstock as it is a bit thicker.  This makes it quicker to make ornaments as each ornament needs about 20 pieces cut out.  Once it is folded and glue together, it comes together pretty quickly.

 

Paper:  Bella DSP, Very Vanilla

Accessories:  Big Shot, Holiday Ornaments framelits, Snow flurry die, subtles button, twine.

7 October 2012 – Christmas Box

Here is the final box of the series.  Seeing as it is only 79 sleeps until Christmas (Aahhhh!!), I thought it would be nice to do a Christmas box as well.  And there are such nice papers to choose from this year, so I need to try them all out!!

I used my favourite Labels Collection Framelits to mat the Heart of Christmas stamp from the Holiday Catalogue.  You can just see it in the photo that I have used the Festive paper piercing pack on the Real Red layer.  Looks really nice!!  The snow flake is from Snow Flurry Die.  You would never know it was hiding a little ink spot!!

 

 

 

The cards are following the same template as the other boxes.  I’ve uused the Candelight Christmas Specialty DSP from the Holiday Catalogue.  This paper is very nice and it includes two flocked window sheets which are very luxurious!!  The Holiday Ornaments Framelits make cutting out the ornaments so easy!  No more dodgy hand cutting for me!  I also love the font on the Greetings of the Season stamp set.  Very elegant.

I hope you have enjoyed the box that I made from Tanya’s tutorial.

26 September 2012 – More Christmas Ornaments

There are so many gorgeous Christmas ornaments at the moment just waiting to be made!!  And covered in glitter!!

I saw this first one at Stamp with Callena and thought it looked lovely but not too hard to do.  I was so excited to see the Snow Flurry die in the Holiday catalogue as snow flakes are so pretty!!  Just because we have a stinking hot summer doesn’t mean that we can’t appreciate snow flakes!!

I used my new silicone craft sheet to help make the rosettes whilst I used my hot glue gun.  You fold up the strip of scored paper and then put hot glue on one side and press it onto the craft sheet until it has cooled.  Then fold the paper into a circle, put a dob more of hot glue to join the two ends and there you have it, a lovely rosette!

I think these will definitely be a project for Stamp Club!  I think they would look lovely made with DSP as well.

Paper:  Cherry Cobbler, Silver Glimmer paper

Accessories:  Simply Scored, Silicone craft sheet, Big Shot, Snow Flurry Die.
