Ornaments Framed

  So if you've got Did You Stamp Today? on a reader you're probably sick of me already this morning.  Stampin' Up! is keeping us demos on our toes today with all these great digital freebies and 15% off stamp sale today!  For more details see my previous posts from this morning.

  Not only do I have a lot going on stamping-wise but it's a busy, loud morning here at home.  We've had schools canceled due to Hurricane Sandy.  It's hardly windy at all here, just some gusts now and then and it hasn't rained much at all so the day off from school seems a bit silly.  I know that it will probably get worse later on and they are just being cautious but it's looking to be a long day inside for us!  We've already burned through paint pens and glitter glue, kids stamping, and Play Doh!  And it's not even 11am!  My poor abused kitchen table is begging for a break! 

  I have some cards to share that my stamping ladies made last week at my stamp-a-stack.  They made 2 of each design. 

  This design is really quick to put together.  We've used a Crumb Cake base with a layer of either Gumball Green or Cherry Cobbler Core'dinations cardstock.  The Core'dinations cardstock is embossed with the Holiday Frame folder and lightly sanded to bring out more of the details. 

  The ornaments were stamped in opposite colors from embossed panel and cut out with the matching framelits and popped up with a dimensional.  We stamped a Cherry Cobbler and Gumball Green ornament on the same piece of cardstock and ran both framelit shapes through the Big Shot at the same time; no need to do each one separately.  It really makes these cards quick!  We added a rhinestone to the center of the ornament and a Very Vanilla seam binding fork bow to the top.

  You can't get much easier than that!  And remember that the Ornament Keepsakes bundle with the added Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP will get you the Festive Piercing pack for free ($7.95 value!).  You could make a ton of Christmas cards and projects with these supplies!  Don't wait though this deal is only good through the end October.

  Stay safe East Coasters!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
