Christmas in August-Roxie's party

This ornament is a very simplified version of the ornament on the 2012 Holiday catalog. These ornaments are fun to make, but a little time consuming. Once you make one, though, you'll want to make more!

Lovely as a Tree is a great stamp set for holiday/winter cards! To make the moon, I stamped the trees, punched a circle of a post-it to use as a mask, then sponged with Tempting Turquoise. Remove the mask and you have a moon! The glimmer in the snow is Dazzling Details Silver Sparkle from the Holiday catalog.

The tree on this card is 3-D! Stamp and punch three times, fold in half, and attach together. This is the same technique that was used on the ornament.

Triple Time Stamping!!! This technique is quick and easy to do. Layer the lighter card stock with a small amount of adhesive. Then stamp, stamp, stamp! Take the layers apart and attach to a slightly larger piece of coordinating card stock. There are so many stamp sets that this would look great with!

Happy Stamping!
