18 December 2012 – The last of my ornaments, I think!!

It’s such a hot day today!!  I hope you have been able to keep cool somewhere!  I finished my last night shift this morning and so I’ve had a nanna nap and am now raring to go (well, only a bit!)

I wanted to share with you the ornaments that I have made for friends for Christmas.  I used the Holiday Ornaments set and did a combination of stamped ones and Designer series paper for them.  I’m happy with how they came out and I hope they all like them.

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.

12 October 2012 – I’m addicted!!

My name is Rebecca and I’m addicted to Pinterest!!!  I just love it!!  I’ve pinned so many cards to make.  I don’t think there is enough time to make everything I’ve pinned!!  But I have been inspired by them all.  Here is a card from a fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator from Germany, Judith Laureano.  I changed a couple of details as I used the Adorning Accents edgelit for the scallops and  the Decorative label punch for the sentiment.

I really love the Lacy Brocade embossing folder.  It is very noice!!!

Tell me what you think!
