Hi, I am back with some Christmas cards I made during the week. The first card I used the Tree Trimmings and Seasonal Wishes (retired) stamp sets, CS Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant and Brushed Silver, I also used some white shimmer CS (non Stampin'Up!) on one of the ornaments, Ink was Elegant Eggplant and the ticket corner punch. The second card I used the Seasonal Wishes (retired) stamp set, Real Red CS and Ski Slope DSP, I punched out the ornaments using the Ornament punch from the US Holiday Mini, I also used some pearls and clear beads from the Pretties Kit, Ink used was the Silver Encore!, Silver cord and Silver gel pen (non Stampin'Up!) The Ribbon: Riding Hood Red 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain is from the Australian Spring mini. Both cards had Stampin' Dimensional used to pop the ornaments. Thanks for looking! Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Tree Ornaments

It's getting closer to Christmas so I thought I would try making different styled 3D ornaments. I got out some of my SU punches and this is what I made, What do you think!!

The DSP was Ski Slope and the punches used are: Scallop Circle, Scallop Oval and the Ornament punch from the US (not available in Australia Yet?). The Scallop Oval was used twice (folded two different ways) I also used the clear round beads, White round pearl and clear teardrops from the Pretties Kit and some silver cord (non SU).
