Aloha, all! The computer in Robin’s Craft Room is back up and running! Hooray!! But having no access to a computer for a few days gave me more time to play with all my fun Stampin’ Up! Christmas "stuff." I’m still playing with the materials from the Country Living Holiday Collection Stampin’ Kit (114447 if you’d like to order it online). And my favorites continue to be the ornaments. Would you also be surprised that I added some Little Felt Flurries (113697) to my ornaments? Not if you’ve been reading my blog the last week or so!
I started with one of the chipboard snowflakes from the Country Living collection. Each of the chipboard pieces is die cut and comes with two pieces of die cut Designer Series Paper to match. The DSP pieces are double sided, so you can choose which color you’d like to use. With my ornament, I chose to use one color on one side of the snowflake and the second color on the other side.
In a few days, I hope to have a video showing how I attached the DSP to the chipboard. Meanwhile, let me just say that I really like using the Anywhere Glue Stick (104045), especially with detailed chipboard elements such as the snowflakes, because I can slide the DSP around a bit until I get it just where I want it.
To embellish this side of the ornament, I added a circle chipboard element (also from the Country Living set) and covered it with a contrasting piece of DSP. On top of that I layered two Little Felt Flurries, and added a Rhinestone Brad from the Circle Ice set (109111). Finally, I used the Crop-a-dile (108632) to punch a hole in the finished chipboard snowflake and attached some Silver Elastic Cord (109866) for hanging.
Tomorrow I’ll show off the other side (different colors, and I’ll leave you guessing as to whether I added some of the Little Felt Flurries!). Meanwhile, as always, you can shop Stampin’ Up! 24/7–or call (808.854.6145) or e-mail me if you have any questions or if you’d like me to place an order for you! It’s getting late in the season–got to get those ornaments started now!!
