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.
Stamp Set: Ornament Keepsakes
Accessories: Big Shot, Holiday Ornament framelits, Rosette Die, Vintage Faceted buttons, Cherry Cobbler Scalloped tulle ribbon.
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.
I am really loving the ornament which is on the front of the Holiday Catalogue. I’ve seen a couple of different colour combinations and they look fabulous! I thought I would give it a try using Designer Series Paper rather than stamping each petal and then cutting out. It certainly made it a bit faster to make, although I had a few challenges with sticky fingers and the tombow glue! I’m really happy with the end result. Let me know what you think by leaving me a comment.
