Stampin Friends Happy Holidays Blog Hop

Hey there!! I am back with the Stampin Friends this month hopping with the "Happy Holidays" blog hop! I am sooooo excited to be busting out the Christmas goodies! It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is only a week away. I guess I didn't realize it after all the fun I had at Stampin' Up! OnStage in Salt Lake City!! Truly the best 4 days of my life.

With this months project I was inspired by a room mate gift I received from one of my fellow demonstrator friends! She made these cute little ornaments with a little bit of Burlap Ribbon, Gingham Ribbon and embellished the inside with a heat embossed sentiment with a lovely snowflake. It just so happened that I had these cute little clear plastic ornaments that I scored on clearance from Walmart last Christmas!!! Let me get you the details...

My card is a rich base of Old Olive card stock to coordinate with the Christmas Around the World DSP. It is nicely matted with Cherry Cobbler card stock. A nice layer of DSP was a festive touch. When making this card I used the Stitched Shapes to cut the DSP that Santa is propped on. It is adhered to a Layered Circle of Red Glimmer Paper. Now for my Santa... Yes he came from the Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle, I felt a bit like Jeffrey Dahmer when making him. Once he was colored with the Stampin' Blends markers I started piecing him around the sentiment that I also fussy cut from the same DSP pack. It really turned out cute!! I added some fun silver thread for a little bit of sparkle.

My fun 3D started by cutting a full sheet of 12 x 12 DSP from the Christmas Around the World pack into 1/2" strips and curling them. I stuffed them into the ornament using a pencil. I then wrapped a piece of the Burlap ribbon with the Cross Stitch Ribbon to make the lovely little bow. This bow is holding the cute little tag made using the Everyday Label Punch with the Cookie Cutter Bundle! The added sparkle from the Gold Mini Sequin Trim and the Faceted Gems were just the right touch!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I saved the best part for last!!
