O is for Ornaments

Welcome to my Holiday ABC series! I really enjoy decorating for the holidays and I love to put different theme trees throughout our home.  One of my favorite trees is our collection of White House ornaments given to us by my mother-in-law. My husband has continued the tradition of giving these ornaments to family and friends. I made some 3 x 3 cards to enclose with the ornaments we will give this year.

I used the Seasons of Whimsy Stamp Set and the New Stampin’ Blends (available today!) to create these cards. The exclusive Seasons of Whimsy stamp set is available with host rewards.  Contact me for more information on how you can earn this stamp set (found on page 3 in the Holiday Catalog). This is a great set for Christmas, New Year’s, and Valentine’s Day (or anytime you want to let someone know you love them)!

My card base is 3 x 6 Thick Whisper White scored at 3″. I stamped the ornaments on Thick Whisper White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them with the new Stampin’ Blends. I used both the light and dark markers on my ornaments then fussy cut them.  I added silver metallic thread to the back of each ornament and adhered with mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. My DSP measures 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 and is layered with Basic Black cardstock 1/8″larger. I attached Silver Bows with Glue Dots and added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels. Matching envelopes add the finishing touch.

Say hello to a world of colorful creativity with Stampin’ Up!’s premier alcohol markers.  The new Stampin’ Blends are artist-quality alcohol markers in 12 exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors.  These markers make it easy to blend colors and create lovely works of art!! 

  • Add just the right amount of color where you need it with the brush tip or fine-point.
  • Each color (except Ivory and Bronze) has a light and dark shade marker, available individually or in a combo pack.
  • Press fit seal prevents air from entering the barrel and causing evaporation.
  • The nestable lids are easy to keep track of and have a tight fit for long-lasting color.
