Pull Away Embellished Ornament Note Card

I'm all about fun surprises in my projects, so I just love that the ornament on this note card is the focal point for the card and can be pulled away to use as a tree ornament. I pierced a tiny hold into the fold of the card and then fed the ends of the ornament cording trim into the hole and the ends dangle inside the card. The other thing that I love about this ornament is the sparkle of the glimmer paper and the shine of the foil. If you want to see how I made it, just follow my above video tutorial.

The Embellished Ornaments Bundle is at the heart of this card. The Delicate Ornament Thinlits provide the pieces that make up the ornament and the the Embellished Ornaments Stamp Set provides the perfect greeting. SAVE 15% when you buy the stamp set and the thinlits together as a bundle.

All the rest of the supplies you'll need for this project are available for purchase HERE! Earn a FREE tutorial from me when you place a $15 order in my Stampin' Up Store (see the choices HERE).

Happy Stamping!!

Snow Friends Kiss Tents

You can thank my son for this last installment in my kiss tent series. When I showed him the pumpkin and the acorn, he asked me what my third one was going to be. He knows me too well. I do like to make things in odd numbers. So back through my stamp sets I went until I found my little friends from the Snow Place stamp set. A good thing he asked the question, because it turns out that this is my favorite one of the series. Find out how to make these adorable snow friends kiss tents with my above video tutorial.

There are many ways that you could use these kiss tents. You can certainly just make them up individually, but they also look super cute when mounted on a Lots of Labels Framelits Piece. Such a cute scene these little guys make, perfect for a Christmas decoration or hostess gift.

They also make a great Christmas tree ornament. Just punch a hole with the 1/16" handheld circle punch and string it with some Silver Cording Trim and you have an adorable ornament with a Hershey's kiss treat hidden inside. I wonder how long the kisses will last from those prying little fingers, but no worries. The Hershey's kisses can easily be replaced because they stay put without adhesive (and I'm not kidding).

In my video I mention that I will post how I stamped all the pieces on a half sheet of THICK Whisper White Card Stock. You can see how I stamped them in the photo below.

If you purchase the Snow Place Stamp Set and the Snow Friends Framelits as a Bundle, you will save 15%. All of the rest of the supplies you'll need for this project are available for purchase HERE!
