Christmas

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!!!!

Happy stamping,

Christmas, Thinlits Dies

I’m back!

Well hello lovely stampers,

We are back from our wonderful holiday to Phuket, Thailand. I hope you enjoyed the few photos we posted on facebook while we were away. You wouldn’t believe that we took over 900 photos, so there will be lots of Scrapbooking in the near future!

It’s great to be home and able to stamp again!

The new Expressions Thinlits Dies (from the Holiday Catalogue) got a work out this morning and they are wonderful. I was a little worried about easy they were going to release from the die, but they are fantastic. They sure will become a feature on many cards.

I started with this Christmas card using the thinlits and the frosted finishes embellishment with the Winter Frost DSP.

I love this Venetian Romance DSP pack of papers. I have also used the expressions thinlits using multipurpose adhesive sheets and silver glitter over the heart from the Hearts a Flutter Stamp and Die Set.

These are just a taste of what I have been working on and will have plenty more to share with you in the coming weeks.
