Jolly Jingles - Festive Friday

Terri Sproul hosts this lovely blog hop every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month - we're making Christmas Cards! If you're just joining please be sure to start at the beginning of the blog list (below for your convenience) and catch all the great projects posted by these talented ladies!

My card this week is made with the lovely jumbo wheel stamp - Jolly Jingles #120864 - "the ultimate in merry making" with more than enough Christmas spirit to liven up my day! I stamped in Cherry Cobbler onto Very Vanilla card stock, then layered that onto a Cherry Cobbler cardstock on top of a Gumball Green strip of card stock. The card base is Crumb Cake. All very delicious sounding, yes? The Seasons Greetings sentiment is from that old failthful of mine, Snow Swirled #127799, stamped in Gumball Green on Very Vanilla, and layered over Gumball Green again using the beautiful Decorative Label punch #120907. Last but not least that little festive ribbon, corrdinating perfectly in Gumball Green, the 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon #126848.
This card would be easy to make en masse for your holiday list, but also could be dressed up and blinged out to make a really one of a kind piece.

For some more cheery inspiration please continue on and visit all the lovely blogs participating in this Festive Friday blog hop!
Next on the path is The Robins Nest. Enjoy!!

Happy Crafting,

P.S. If you are looking to start buying holiday stamps, make a list and check it twice... then hurry over to my online store Monday 10/29/12 for a SPOOK-tacular SALE on STAMPS!!!
15% off almost every set! You won't want to miss it!

Q&A : Stampin' Up! Holiday Ornament

Stampin' Up! Holiday Ornament

Q: I love the ornament featured on the front of the Holiday catalog. How do I make it?

Stampin' Up! Adhesive Options

A: That ornament is all the rage in the stampin’ world! This month, you can receive the Festive Paper-Pericing Pack with our Christmas Gift Promotion. 

You’ll be surprised that you can create such a beautiful ornament from paper. It takes a bit of time, but is actually pretty simple to do. And makes a great gift.

Here’s how!

• Ornament Keepsake stamp set (#128048 wood, #128051 clear)
• Holiday Ornaments Framelits Dies (#127816)
• Big Shot (#113439)
• Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink Pad (#126966)
• Old Olive Classic Ink Pad (#126953)
• Very Vanilla card stock (#101650)
• Simply Scored Scoring Tool (#122334)
• 1-3/8” Circle Punch (#119860)
• 3-1/2” Scalloped Tulle Ribbon (#127841)
• Multipurpose Liquid Glue (#110755)
• Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons (#127555)
• Large Pearl Basic Jewels (#125577)
• Linen Thread (#104199)
• 1/8” Taffeta Ribbon or other ribbon for hanging ornament
• Rosette Die (#125594)
• Candlelight Christmas Designer Series Paper (#126901)
• Silicone Craft Sheet (#127853)
• Bone Folder (#102300)
• Hot Glue Gun and Glue

Stampin' Up! Adhesive Options
Step 1: Stamp 20 of the larger ornament images on Very Vanilla card stock with Old Olive ink. Cut out with the coordinating Holiday Ornaments Framelits Die using the Big Shot. Stamp 20 of the small ornament images on Very Vanilla card stock with Cherry Cobbler ink. Cut out with the coordinating Holiday Ornaments Framelits Die using the Big Shot. Score 15 of each ornament in half from top to bottom using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool. Fold in half along the score line.

Step 2: Use the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere three of the scored ornaments together. Adhere one half of the first ornament lined up with one half of the next ornament and then do the same with the third ornament. Leave one half of the first and last ornaments un-glued. Repeat the steps until you have created 5 sets of the 3-ornament groupings in each ornament style. Add Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the halves of the first and last ornaments in the 3-ornament grouping. Adhere to an un-scored ornament of the same style. Repeat for all 5 sets of each style.

Step 3: Punch a circle from scrap card stock using the 1-3/8” Circle Punch. Place the circle on the Silicone Craft Sheet. Add a line of hot glue around the edge of the circle. Position the necks of the larger Old Olive ornaments, flat side down, evenly around the circle. Press into the hot glue. Use the Bone Folder to avoid burning yourself. Nest the smaller ornaments with the larger ornaments.

To finish-up add Tulle Ribbon, linen thread and create a rosette to the center of the ornament with the clear button using hot glue.  Punch a hole for ribbon at the top. Optional: Add Dazzling Details Stampin’ Glitter or Champaign Shimmer Mist to add sparkle to the finished ornament.
