Holiday Catalog, Part 6 - Christmas Collectibles

I thought last year's set of stamped ornaments were lovely, but this set, called Christmas Collectibles, is bundled with a coordinating punch, making these cards so easy.

Here is one sample. Base is Smoky Slate Card Stock. Then a mat of DSP from Winter Frost DSP Paper Stack is added. 

The ornament colors used here are Night of Navy, Bermuda Bay and then a third ornament was punched from the same Winter Frost Paper Stack.  Add a strip of Stitched Night of Navy ribbon across the top.  Some Rhinestone bling is added where appropriate.

This one has a base of Whisper White, with Gumball Green, which has been embossed with the Mosaic Emb. Folder as a background mat.

A strip of the printed window Sheet from Quatrefancy DSP has been flag-ended and attached to the left side. The window sheet looks so good against dark background colors. 

A piece of 1" Cherry Cobbler Grosgrain goes across the top, also flag-ended.  One of the ornaments is stamped on White with Gumball Green ink and the two other ornaments are punched with the Ornament Punch from Season of Style DSP, The middle one looked a bit naked, so I punched another ornament out of Cherry Cobbler, cut it up the middle and "spread" it to give the image a bit of contrast.  All ornaments are popped up with Dimensionals and a tiny piece of White Baker's Twine is tied in a bow around the ornament necks. Add those Rhinestones for the appropriate bling.

This is my fave.  Using the DSP from the Winter Frost Paper Stack, trimmed down to 5-1/4 x 4", then cut in half diagonally. Stamp the sentiment (from retired Merry Messages) on Coastal Cabana Card Stock with the same treatment as the DSP and run the Cabana piece through the Big Shot with the Stylish Stripes Emb. Folder

The ornaments are stamped in Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Island Indigo. The bottom one is stamped three times, folded in the middle and attached to each other to provide a 3-D effect. All three are "strung" with 1/8" Silver Ribbon and mounted with Dimensionals to stand up a bit. Blingy embellishments were added with Dazzling Details Glitter Glue.

Thanks for looking!
