Some new Stampin’ Up! products arrived this week!  Of course, I had to play!


This is the new set called “Delightful Decorations”.  There is an ornament punch, too, which makes it so easy and so fun to decorate!  I also used the new Sizzlits Merry Details die for the snowflakes.  The DSP is also in the new SU! Holiday Mini Catalog available September 1st.


Since it’s still August, I thought it might be fun to see if I could turn this Christmas set into something that could be used right now.


So I made a flower with one of the ornament stamps!  Too fun!  I sponged around the “petals” using the punched out area to mask the outer border.  (When stamping the ornament I also used the rock n’ roll technique to further emphasize the border.)




All products used on both cards are Stampin’ Up! only.
