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.

Everyone should have received their Holiday Catalog in the mail. I can’t wait to create with the fun stamp sets, beautiful new designer series papers, gorgeous ribbons, etc.!

If you are not currently working with another demonstrator and would like a copy of the new catalog, email me and I will be happy to send one out to you.

Let’s have some fun with the new catalog!

You can grab a cup of coffee (or glass of wine) and enjoy browsing the catalog.  Look for answers to the questions below, copy and paste the questions with your answers, and email them to me (j.stark@myactv.net).

It’s a Delightful Day!

Today’s the day you can order from the Holiday Catalog!

2016 Holiday catalog

Click on the catalog for a digital download of the book.

Before you start browsing, check out this quick and simple project I made using some new 6 x 6 DSP, Warmth & Cheer.  I made a mini notebook and pen set in keeping with the Back to School theme this week. I chose Delightful Dijon for this Delightful Day! (I admit I was tempted to keep up the apples but my daughter called to tell me “enough with the apples!”LOL)  What do you think of the stars?

The pen is a Pentel RSVP pen which you can buy just about anywhere.  It opens easily so you can wrap a piece of DSP  (7/8 x 3 1/2) around the pen and slide it back in. That’s all there is to it. I made 12 of these pens in all different colors of Brights & Subtles for the hairdressers. Everyone has their own unique color pen so no gets their pen mixed up.

I used the same DSP to make a matching mini notebook. I bought these at our local Dollar Store. You get a pack of 3 for $1.  You can’t beat that!  I love the wishes sentiment with the stars.  This could be used to write your wish list from the holiday catalog, Christmas wishes, ideas, a journal, etc.  It would make a great graduation gift too!  You could have family members and friends write their wishes for the graduate in the book. That would be a treasured keepsake. I always keep a little notebook in my purse and I like these as I’m not losing pieces of paper.  I can check things off my list, write reminders, add notes, etc.

I cut 2 pieces of DSP 2 3/4 x 4 1/2 and glued them to the cover and back.  The Multipurpose Glue allowed for some wiggle time to get it just right before it dried.  Then I trimmed any excess with my paper snips and rounded the corners.   I used the new Delightful Dijon ribbon (part of a trio pack) to wrap along the binding and tie in a knot. I added some metallic enamel stars to finish it off. (Check out the Specials below to save on the enamel shapes this week!)
