Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop

We had such a good time last Sunday with the Annual Catalogue Blog Hop that we're going to do it again for the Holiday Catalogue.

Welcome to those who have joined me from Andrea Buckland's post.  To carry on with your journey or if you just started here with me scroll down to the bottom of my project and click on the link for the next crafter in line.

Like me many of you have been drooling over the Christmas tree ornament on the front cover of the Holiday Catalogue.  I love it but I don't have the patience to create it so using the 'Ornament Keepsakes' stamp set along with the 'Holiday Ornaments' framelits this is my simpler version.

This is the first one I made stamped in Pool Party and Island Indigo Classic ink and glued together with any adhesive I could lay my hands on.  I'm so pleased that I got the new Silicon Craft Sheet and bought a hot melt glue gun before I put together the next one.

Here's the next one stamped in Gumball Green & Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink. While I'm usually a blue person for the ornaments I'm preferring this one possibly because of the depth of colour created by my new format Gumball Green ink pad.


But this stamp set isn't just useful for ornaments.  Here I've used it to create an ornament to embellish a card made with the 'Heart of Christmas' stamp set and 'Festival of Prints' Designer Paper Stack.

Products I've used: -

Stamp Sets - Ornament Keepsakes & Heart of Christmas
Paper - Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Pool Party, Island Indigo, Gumball Green & Cherry Cobbler Cardstock, Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack
Ink - Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler, Pool Party & Island Indigo Classic Stampin' Pads
Tools - 1" & 1 3/8" Circle, 1 3/4" Scallop Circle, Big Shot, Holiday Ornaments Framelit Dies.
Accessories - Baja Breeze Seam Binding, Cherry Cobbler Scallop Dots Ribbon, Stampin' Sponge, Sizzix Adhesive Sheet, Silicon Craft Sheet, Hot Melt Glue Gun, Dazzling Diamonds.

The next stop on our hop is Michelle Grech.

I love your version of the ornament. Like you I don't think I have the patience but we will see. I love it in the blues.

Kylie Clemmence said...

Gorgeous Keryn, I love making these!!

Keryn, love the card the colours are so pretty. I like how the ornaments on cards like this can go through the post so easily and look great at the other end.
