12 Days of Christmas: Day 6 Holiday Catalog Ornament

» 27 August, 2012 » 3-D Projects, Big Shot, Christmas, Video Tutorials » 0 comments

Today I’m sharing my take on the holiday ornament on the front cover of the Holiday Catalog. I used the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set and the Holiday Ornaments Framelits. Instead of using Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive like the cover, I chose to use Baja Breeze and Early Espresso. These are my favorite colors. I wear a lot of chocolate and aqua clothes & my room is decorated in these colors. Needless to say, there was no question about what colors I wanted to use to make this ornament.

Freshly Made Sketch #48: Perfectly Preserved

Here is what I put together for this week’s Freshly Made Sketch.  I used the set Perfectly Preserved and Orchard Harvest DSP. I’m in love with the color combo in this dsp!  I also used the Cannery Set Framelits to cut the pear out.  Did you know that Stampin’ Up! offers this stamp set and the framelits as a bundle?  If you purchase them together you will save 15%.  Isn’t that awesome!

Blooming with Kindness

My card today is one of the cards we will be making at my monthly card class in August. It uses the stamp set Blooming with Kindness.  When I first saw this set in the catalog, I’ll be honest, I wasn’t thrilled with it.  Of course, as soon as I started browsing Stampin’ Connection (an exclusive site for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators), I fell in love with it.  I embossed the midnight muse card stock with Perfect Polka Dots Folder, and the Very Vanilla cardstock was run through the Big Shot using the Oval Accents Die.
