A Festive Flurry Christmas

Hello Stampers,

Well talk about the silly season creeping upon us, what a busy week it has been!

Here a few of the Christmas ornaments that I have been busy making for our tree.

I can’t decide what colours I like best, so I did a few different ones.

Festive Flurry

This is Blushing Bride & Smoky Slate

Festive Flurry

Cherry Cobbler & Pear Pizzaz

Festive Flurry Festive Flurry

These 2 are Island Indigo and Bermuda Bay.

I love them all and thinks they look so pretty on the tree!

I have also made one to give to a work colleague. She is a lover of champagne, so I thought this was the loveliest gift idea.

I have also made some double sided ornaments to hang from a beam between our kitchen and lounge.

Christmas, Gift Ideas

Stamping on Candles

Hello Stampers,

Today I want to share with you a new technique I hadn’t tried before, Stamping on Candles.

Seeing as it is coming up to Christmas and I am madly trying to think of some new ideas for gifts, I thought I would give this a go!

Well, what do you think?

Stamping on Candles

Personally I think this first one worked much better than the second. This is Festive Flurry stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink.

This is Beautifully Baroque stamped with Gold ink, but it is still a lovely effect.

These candles are for display only, I couldn’t bare to burn them!!!!

Happy stamping,

Kate

Christmas Wreath

Hello Stampers,

Well I have finally started my Christmas Decorations and my Christmas Wreath for the front door. What do you think?

I was going to add some more festive flurry die cuts, but then I thought it probably doesn’t need them and would it look too busy with more around the ring? Yes, I stopped myself and here is the finished product.

Stampin Up Christmas Wreath

I used Cherry Cobbler Stitched Edge Grosgrain Ribbon ($15.95 for 9.1m, item code 132135) from the Holiday Catalogue to wrap around the foam ring.

The ornament is hanging from the Silver Ribbon ($8.95 for 9.1m, item code 132137)

I made the ornament with the Festive Flurry Bundle ($83.95 clear, $95.95 wood). This bundles includes the Festive Flurry Stamp Set and the Festive Flurry Framelits Dies saving you 15% by purchasing as a bundle.

I used Smoky Slate and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Inkpads and Stampin’ Dimensionals between each Flurry. To finish it off I added a Frosted Finishes Embellishment ($11.95 for 12, item code 132150). These embellishments are adorned with rhinestones ~ you know how much I love a bit of bling!!!!

Christmas Decorations

Morning Stampers,

How about making your own decorations to put on the tree this Christmas.

Here I have used the Festive Flurry Framelits and there is no stamping, yes you heard right, for a change I have not used any stamps!!!

Festive Flurry

I used two different embossing folders, Northern Flurry & Polka Dots to emboss the Pool Party and Very Vanilla Flurry’s. I scored each flurry down the middle and glued them together with tombo glue. I did 3 at a time, 1 of each of the colours. When I was ready to glue the 2 bundles together, I first glued the ribbon to the centre!

This will blow your mind what can be made with the Festive Flurry Stamp Set from the Holiday Catalogue.

My poor husband lives in a household with three girls, so you can imagine our Christmas tree…. yep, pink and silver baubles and butterflies!

So just to add to what we already have, I created this Christmas decoration for our 2013 tree.
