Ornament Punch

Don't forget the ornament punch this Christmas season.  SU 
sells several sets that coordinate with this punch.  This combination
makes it easy to crank out those Christmas cards!

This set uses Always Artichoke, Soft Suede, Real Red and Crumb Cake.
This ornament set, Delightful Decorations is found on page 35 of 
the main catty.

A Big Shot embossing folder was used to add texture to the card base 
and layered portions of the card.

I did not have Artichoke taffeta ribbon, so I colored
some white with a marker!

Falling Leaves on Pear Pizzazz

This is a layout that has been on web sites lately.  It is a neat
variation on a traditional card form.

The 3 strips, stamped with the Falling Leaves set are 
Cajun Craze, So Saffron and More Mustard.

The Pear Pizzazz card base was rolled with the coordinating
Bright Blessings wheel, inked in VersaMark.

The sentiment layer is a die from the Big Shot
Lots of Tags die.  Tiny Pearls and the 
Pear Pizzazz Ribbon were added to accent
the sentiment.

reflecting the most recent SU boxes that have landed on my porch.
However, the Summer Mini is still "good", including the 
delightful set Watercolor Trio.  This card is a CASE of a
card my Pam Speidel.  Hers included lots of sewing.  Mine obviously does not.

Accessories:  Big Shot Scallop Square, Big Shot Embossing Folder,
Big Shot Trims Die, Marina Mist 5/8 inch Grograin Ribbon,

I hope you are having a great Sunday.
