Pals Guest Stamper: Kim Czenszak

Kim Czenszak, a member of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals and today’s Pals Guest Stamper, has an eye for detail and flair for color.  I love how she opted to go slightly non-traditional with her red, white and blue holiday scheme.  The touch of White Baker’s Twine to “hang” the ornaments from the loops of the border trim is genius!  The stamps are from the Ornament Keepsake stamp set and coordinate with the Holiday Ornaments Framelits Dies–both are from the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog, p. 3.  SAVE 15% when you purchase them as a bundle (Wood-Mount Bundle 129949, Clear-Mount Bundle 129950).
