Tree Trimmings

Stampin up tree trimmings sweet season

Isn't this a delightful ribbon for the holidays?  The card is one I created as part of a Make and Take at the Stampin' Up! Convention last month (an SU design, not mine). It's snazzy enough that I wanted to share 🙂

Convention offers so many interesting tips and ideas.  I love the snipped out ornaments from the Tree Trimmings stamp set and the touch of bling from the Clear Circle Rhinestone Brad.

  • Stampin up christmas greetings ornaments Need to mass produce your holiday cards?  Find a clean and classy card like this one.  It has just enough glamour and pomp to showcase your homemade art but can be constructed easily (even the snipping is simple).
  • Popping up the ornaments on Stampin' Dimensionals takes the card from pretty to "wow!"
  • A Stamp-A-Ma-Jig is a helpful friend for lining up the hanging cord and ornaments.
  • The ornament on the envelope pulls the entire look together.  Cool!

  22. Hi Michelle:

    FYI: I heard back from SU. I can continue my Mojo gig and you can continue to upload to the Mojo Contests. Because the link to the Mojo doesn’t go directly to the Verve store (merely a store button/banner is on the side), SU has the thumbs up. Same is true with anything related to SCS.

    Thought you might like to know.
