Holiday Ornament

The Holiday Ornament that appears on the front cover of the SU Holiday mini is not hard to duplicate just labor intensive but well worth the effort. I used the tutorial by Kirsteen Gill ( construct the ornament.

Scentsational Season Card

Using the SU Scentsational Season stamp set and framelit dies to create this card was really easy. I folded a card base of Soft Suede into a gatefold card. I inked the gingerbread man stamp first with Vera Mark than Early Expresso and applied Dazzling Diamonds. Gumball Green was used on the mug and Real Red marker on the candy cane. Pearl bling was used for accent and DSP from the Festival of Prints completed the outside. The inside started with WW CS and Gumball Green and Daffadil Delight were used for background color. I used the framelits to create the shapes and used scrap pieces of ribbon to fill in the space. Threw on some bling and stamped some sayings and I was done.

Ornaments with Soda/Pop cans

Grap your glue gun, empty soda/pop cans, Baker's twine, SU glitter paper and large pearls,hole punch and the SU "Snow Flurry" Bigz die to create snowflake ornaments. Easy and a great way to recycle those alumnium cans.

This Holiday Door Deco card was inspired by Lynn Pratt. It is easy to create once all the pieces parts are cut and shading of the door panels is done.

Sweater Trim Card

Making a wreath with the new "Sweater Trim" from SU is relatively easy and works well on the Side Spring Card format. The format for the card was designed by Beate Johns and recently demonstrated at the LNS event in Utah. The base is CS cut to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Score on short side at 2 3/4" Score on long side at 2 3/4 and 4" Score diagonally between 2 3/4" and 4" Crease and fold. The wreath was made by braiding all three colors of the sweater trim and forming a circle, using hot glue to connect the ends and tying a bow. DSP was from the "Festival of Prints" from the Holiday Mini.
