Ornament Keepsakes

I had a class with a lovely craft group the other week and we did 3 Christmas cards, heres the first one. The set is probably the most popular stamp set ever, gorgeous baubles with co-ordinating dies. I went with a slightly diferent colour combo that the usual Early Espresso, Pool Party and Island Indigo. The sentiment is from the Curly Cute stamp set. The main baubles were stamped and then die cut on White cardstock. The centres were stamped and the circle punched with a circle punch, the oval one was cut with scissors. The small brown bauble was stamped onto the cardstock directly and the centre stamped and punched out again and attached with foam pads.

There is alot happening within Stampin'Up at the moment and the new year will see lots of exciting things coming but one of the most eagerly awaiting is the Stampin'Up trimmer. I have a basket full of trimmers from several companies I have collected over the years but they all have the same fault....the extension hinge folds between the 5" and 6" marks. so cutting to any increments inbetween is difficult. The SU one has a larger cutting area and is £22.95 and is available to buy now, if anyone is interested heres a little video.

Back tomorrow with an embossed card
