Sneak Peek: Delightful Decorations

Stampin up mojo monday delightful decorations

MojoTeresa Meet the Mojo Monday Sketch Day 3 by Teresa Kline, one of my fellow Mojo Makers!  It's my first Christmas card of the year and introduces the Delightful Decorations stamp set and coordinating ornament punch (arriving in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog on September 1).   I was in hot pursuit of the stamp set and punch the moment I spotted them in the Mini.

The Delightful Decorations stamp set offers four different ornaments that are easily cropped out with the new punch and three smaller circle stamps for layering and beyond.  There are coordinating rub-ons (Merry & Bright, 116801) offered in Silver and Whisper White. Very chic and great tools for easy and pretty holiday cards.


  • Gently rubbing a Stampin' Up! Sanding Block (103301, pack of 2) on solid image stamps like the ornament stamp help produce more even inking right out of the starting gate.
  • The Real Red and Old Olive Buttons are from the Playground Designer Button set.  Click here to learn how your can earn them FREE with a qualifying order.
  • Layering the Silver Cord (actually retired but thankfully will be offered in a new and improved elastic version in the Holiday Mini Catalog) over Old Olive 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon adds a little sass.

I have listed the recipe and product numbers below.  If you have any questions or thoughts, please leave me a comment at the end of this post.  I read every one and will answer questions promptly with the comment.  Be sure to check back.
