Holiday Catalogue Ornament

 I am finally getting the pictures posted. I have had this ornament finished for over a month but every time I went to post it the pictures were not uploaded. This is Linda Heller's, from Stamping School, version of the ornament although once I was finished I realized I didn't put the Linen Thread on them. I wouldn't use the glitter again either.....I love the look but I hate the mess!
 It was not a difficult project but was very time consuming, the results are very gratifying though so I guess it is worth it!
I found that the Stampin'Up! version was too crisp and bright for my liking so I did another version using Crumb Cake CS instead of Whisper White. I found it interesting how the colors look so different on the different colored paper. I used the Starburst Jumbo Wheel to Stamp the Crumb Cake Card Stock for the medallion in the center of the Crumb Cake ornament.

 Supplies used are as follows:
Stamp Sets: Ornament Keepsake (w-128048 or c-128051), Starburst Jumbo Wheel(124090)

Paper: Whisper White(100730) or Crumb Cake(120953), Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP (126901) or

Inks: Gumball Green(126861), Cherry Cobbler(126966)

 Accessories: Jumbo Handle(103661), Dazzling Diamonds(102023), Large Basic Pearls(125577), Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons(127555), 2-way Glue Pen(100425), 1 3/8" Circle Punch(119860), Big Shot (113439), Designer Rosette BigZ XL die(125594), Holiday Ornaments Framelits Dies(127816), Cherry Cobbler(127841) or Crumb Cake(127840) 3 1/2" Scalloped Tull, Hot Glue gun.

If you click on the pictures you can see a larger version of them. I do have another ornament partially finished so I will post it when it is finished.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great weekend,

DSP Fancy fold card

 I was really WOW'd when I saw this card for the first time. The base is one half of a piece of 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper(DSP) trimmed to 5 1/2" x 12". You score the long side at 2", 4", 8", and 10". Then you trim off the corners of each end and attach them to the front flaps at the bottom. Simple but very much a WOW! card.

For this card I used:

 Stamp Sets: Embellished Events(w-126495 or c-126497), Itty Bitty Banners(w-125255 or c-125257) and Delightful Dozen(w-122650 or c-122652)
Paper: 2012-2014 In-color Designer Series Paper Stack(126910), Whisper White(100730), Midnight Muse(126843)
Ink: Midnight Muse(126860)

 Accessories: Rhinestone Basic Jewels (119246), Midnight Muse 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon(126847), Paper Trimmer,
Big Shot(113439), Bitty Banners Framelits(129267), Window Frames Collection Framelits(129021), Festive Paper-Piercing Pack(127857), Stampin' Dimensionals(104430)
You can get two different cards from one sheet of DSP, depending on how you fold it. Here is a picture of the other half of the same piece of DSP.

Have a great weekend!

Table Saw Gift Card Holder

 This great project is actually completely made of paper and it is interactive, in that, the wood moves through the saw. It was a CraftProject Central project in May of this year.
 My Dad is a wood worker so this was a must to make for his birthday. It uses all Stampin'Up! products and though it was a challenge to create it was fun!
As the wood is pushed through the saw the gift card protrudes from the back of the saw.

I hope everyone has a great long weekend!
