Today is day three of the previews we've been having for the Waltzingmouse Stamps October release. (All six sets will be available to purchase tomorrow the 15th of October) Today we're looking at 2011 Holiday Ornaments and Santa's Coming to Town (I've just used the Holiday Ornaments set here). Both of these sets are compatible with Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornaments Dies. Yay!
I played around with lots of different layouts but I really liked the negative space created when I arranged all the ornaments together. I thought it made a nice pattern. I went for nice warm colors and tones. The background papers are from the BoBunny Blitzen Collection, that's also where I took my color inspiration from. I used some of the medium and smaller ornament stamps from the 2011 Holiday Ornaments set.
The nice big sentiment is from Say it Loud - Winter Holiday stamped in Coffee Archival Ink. I attached all the ornaments with foam tape to add some dimension. The deep burgundy color paper is from Basic Grey Jovial paper pad. I love how you can stamp the little tops of the ornaments separately.
Ok, for my next card I went for a frosty blue and white color scheme with touches of silver. I used one of the large ornament stamps from 2011 Holiday Ornaments for my card.
I made the silver holly using the solid holly stamp from Festive Foliage, embossed in silver tinsel and cut out. I couldn't resist adding a few silver bells, I love a card that jingles!! : )
The 2011 Holiday Ornaments set comes with two similar sentiments, one normal and one bold.
I stamped the ornaments using Memento Summer Sky ink. Using a glue pen I picked out some of the details and sprinkled with silver ultra fine glitter. I stamped the ornament three times, scored the centre of each and glued the sides to each other.
I hope you enjoyed having a look at 2011 Holiday Ornaments, it really is a fabulous set. Now check out the other Design Team ladies sharing previews today. I'll be back tomorrow for the Waltzingmouse Stamps release day blog waltz!
