12 Weeks of Christmas – Week 10

12 weeks w10

This time, I am focusing on the Embellished Ornaments stamp set and the co-ordinating Delicate Ornaments thinlit dies.

 

 

These are so pretty!! I decided to focus on the thinlits for my card. I cut out the larger bauble from the Red Foil paper and the smaller ornament from gold glimmer paper. So sparkly!!! A little bit of gold cord and a bow and it’s done!!

It was so easy to cut out the ornaments on my big shot using the new precision plate. The paper just popped out of the die.  The photo doesn’t do this card justice, as it is very sparkly in real life.

CTC47 – Let’s Kit Together

Have you seen all the lovely kits at the start of the 2015 Holiday Catalogue? It’s hard to choose which one is the best!! I have got the Tag kit but I’m keeping it to use at an upcoming class, so I was a little stumped as to what to make this week for the CASEing the Catty Challenge.

I decided to do a version of the Shaker Cards featured on page 4.

This kit has includes die cut card fronts, envelopes, printed foil card bases, window sheets, gold foil starts, word stickers (in 3 languages), Christmas tree and circle stickers, baker’s twine, star sequins, red, green and gold sequins, dimensional adhesive strips, chunky clear glitter and dimensionals. Wow, that’s a lot!! You can also get the matching stamp set – To You & Yours too, and the coordinating ink pads, Cucumber Crush, Crushed Curry and Memento Black.

I decided to use a note card and the only colour I could find in the cupboard was Crumb Cake. I then went with a piece of Typeset DSP to go underneath the cut out. I used the Perfect Pines and the Delicate Ornaments framelits to cut the inserts and then put a piece of window sheet over the hole. I then added dimensionals all around the inside of the cut out and added lots of confetti!! I cut out some garden green hearts using the Confetti Heart punch (as I don’t have the Confetti Star punch) and added lots of sequins from the Metalics sequin assortment.

I then carefully attached it to the base piece and added the word from the Wonderful Wreath framelits. I cut it out using the new precision plate, which worked like a dream, and the new Red foil sheets. I’m pretty happy with how they turned out!!

Stampin’ Up! Product List

Welcome to the first ever Pennsationals Team Blog Hop!

Welcome to the very first Pennsationals team blog hop!! We are a group of excited Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who come under the leadership of the fabulous Tracy Penn. You may be starting the hop here with me or have come from the lovely Roslynne.

As you may know, the Holiday Catalogue starts on 1 September 2015. I can’t wait!!! There are so many lovely Christmas stamps, kits and accessories to choose from!! One of the perks of being a demonstrator is being able to participate in a pre-order of products prior to the official commencement date of the catalogue. I love getting things first!! I did get a bit excited and got quite a few stamps set and accessories so I actually had a bit of trouble deciding what to make for the hop.

I eventually settled on the Embellished Ornaments stamp set and the matching Delicate Ornament thinlit dies, which also come in a bundle, saving 15%.

I decided to make a square card so I don’t these very often and these ornaments are fairly wide and needed a bit more space. I’m a traditional Christmas colour kind of girl, so I went with Real Red as my base and then a matt of Garden Green. I cut out the ornament using the new thinlits on the new Precision Plate. All those little pieces cut beautifully and came out easily. You do still have to poke them out but they are all cut through. I noticed that the centre flower of the longer ornament matched the centre of the other ornament so I ran a small piece through the big shot and snipped out the flower and using the new fine tip glue pen, attached it to the red ornament.

Did you notice that there is even a little die for the top of the ornament. Too cute!! I stamped the holly a number of times across the top to look like branches of holly then coloured them in with my blender pens. I also dug out my Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details and added the red dots across the top. And then left it to dry overnight so there would be no accidents!!!

Once the dazzling details was dry, it was time to assemble. Using the new fine tip glue pen to add the gold ornament was so easy. This glue pen is fast becoming one of my favourite glues!!

I used a sentiment from the Versatile Christmas stamp set which has great sentiments for both the outside and insides of cards.

I hope you have enjoyed my card in the hop today. The next stop is my lovely friend, Tracy Penn.
