Stampin' Up! Holiday Ornament

Sunny and bright today.  It's not easy to think of Christmas when the sun is shining although there is a definite chill to the air so Autumn is making itself felt.  And it's only 77 days till Christmas so let's get cracking! 

As soon as I saw the new Autumn/Winter catalogue I wanted to have a go at making the Christmas Ornament on the front.  So this is my take on it.  

It didn't take long really.  The hardest part was making the rosette open out!  I've added an antique brad to the middle giving a vintage look and my tulle ribbon is a bit more fluffy.  I'll not go into all the instructions as there are quite a few tutorials on the net. Just to say that I took the tip to run two different ornaments through the big shot together so that saved time.  Fancy having a go?  We could all have beautifully displayed trees with these on them or they would also look good on the mantlepiece.  I'm sure the design can be adapted to make a candle holder too. 

This has been a very exciting month not just because I had my birthday and we will be celebrating our wedding anniversary on thursday (15 years!) but Stampin' Up! have opened up in two new countries.  A big welcome from the Stampin' Up! family goes out to the Netherlands (Nederland) and Austria (Osterreich).  Customers from these two new countries and in France, Germany and the UK can now place orders and join Stampin' Up! with any of the European Demonstrators.    

This is an excellent time to join as the starter kit is only 129 € (or £99 in the UK) and you can choose 175 € of products for your kit (or £130 in the UK).  Also if you join in October or November then you will receive a free set of papers every month for 6 months!  A huge boost to your starter kit.  Join is very easy, you can email me for the link or simply click the button on my side bar to join my team. 

I would love to hear from you if you would like information on joining Stampin' Up! and you live in the UK, Deutchsland, France, Nederland or Osterreich.  You can e mail me at or call on +447827923123

Amazing ornament, Aileen! I've seen another set of these, but the tulle you used behind it really sets this on off. And the rosette too, what a great combination!
