Christmas tree ornaments

Featuring: 3D, Christmas ornaments, Green sprigs, mini ornaments, Foil Frenzy Cardstock, mini wreaths

This is a special blog post today.
I have made some cute little Christmas Tree ornaments using the Green sprigs and mini ornaments from the Holiday Catalogue p.12 and just had to share all the details for anyone interested in making some themselves.
Not everything is Stampin'Up.




So this is how I made them.


I started with three of the Green sprigs from page 12 of the Holiday Catalogue and using a Hot Glue Gun I glued them into a wooden disk I found in a craft store. However anything with a large hole like the wooden bead I have in the picture would work for this.



I then placed another green sprig in the centre of the three and glued it in place with hot glue gun.
Now I have a mini tree.
To make a snowy appearance on my tree I used these two products below which I had in my cupboard. I do think the Stampin'Up Embossing Paste with Dazzling Diamonds glitter would also give a simil…

Snowflake Christmas decoration

Today I have something a little different for you.
A Christmas Decoration I made using the Foil Snowflakes (p.37 Holiday Catalogue).
I have used Five snowflakes. Folded them in half and glued them together.

 They looked pretty but I didn't stop there.
I decided to thread a piece of gold thread down the centre and add some decorated punched circles at intervals.
I stuck two faceted gems together on top of the ornament to stop it sliding off.
 Here are the two punched circles.
They are double sided.

The first circle has words on both sides. From the Hearts Come Home Stamp Set. I have mounted them onto Gold Foil Circles and added some Rhinestones and little punched heart and star.


For the bottom Circle I have used the Hometown Greetings Dies for the house and tree placing them onto Silver Glimmer and Dazzling Diamonds card. Some Metallic Enamel Shape…

Hooray! The Holiday Catalogue is now gone "live".
And products are available for purchase.

On page 5 there is a nifty little paper stack called Quilted Christmas, with lots of great images you can use for backgrounds and as main images.
I have been having fun with some.
So......
How do you feel about triangles????

Just using the paper stack I have come up with several cards to show you.
I cut these triangles straight out of the paper and created a little Christmas Tree scene.
Using Lemon Lime Twist Base card.
Stitched Framelits for the circle (hills).
Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Card for sparkle.



And then I did it again using a different colour way.
Powder Pink Card base.








And because I was having fun cutting out the trianglesI got the idea of stacking them into a bigger tree design by gluing them onto a piece of Whisper White Card stock and cutting it out with a small border. This time I have us…

Double Gatefold Card Jar of Love

Featuring: Jar of Love stamps and Everyday Jar Framelits, Double Gatefold Card, Special Fold. Stampin Up, Retiform technique, Sheet Music Background stamp

This Special Fold Card started as something completely different and evolved into this Double Gatefold Card.

Black and Tempting Turquoise were used as my base card colours.
I made a Belly Band to hold it closed.




You slip the Belly Band off and open the card.
 Voila!

I have used Jar of Love Stamps and Everyday Jar framelits, Butterfly framelit and the Music Background Stamp.


 The Music Background has been stamped multiple times at different angles and masked off with post it notes each time to create the Retiform Technique for the background.

 So pretty. Soft Sky, Tempting Turquoise, Peekaboo Peach and Tangerine Tango. Old Olive for the leaves.

I used words from Happy Birthday Gorgeous on each of the side panels and cut them up so they would fit. I also added some Washi Tape...just because I have been itching to use it. LOL. (How is …
