Stampin’ Up Saturday ~ Ornament Keepsakes

I almost forgot it was Saturday today. That’s what happens around here when it’s half term. Luckily I’d already made the card ready to share with you.


Some people have the perfect knack of layering up different patterned papers when they are making cards, but I am not one of them. I tend to keep my palette simple and my layers to a minimum. This comes in handy when you’re mass producing a design. One colour of ink and the matching cardstock on a white background.

Once I’d finished layering it up I felt it needed a little something, but I wasn’t sure what. Then I remembered these sweet and simple cards that Sian made last year and knew that a seam binding bow would be just the thing. A greeting from my favourite sentiment set and it’s done.

  • Ornament Keepsakes stamp set
  • Holiday Ornaments framelits dies
  • Curly Cute stamp set
  • Midnight Muse ink
  • Whisper White Cardstock
  • Midnight Muse cardstock

I can make ten of these in an hour. I know because I’ve just done it. Not bad eh?

As always please contact me at angelfishcrafts{at}gmail{dot}com if you would like any more information on the products I’ve used here. The online catalogue can be viewed here and if you would like a paper version, I’ll be happy to send you one.

Next week and throughout November I’ll be showing different ways to use this set.

Thanks for the ideas Fiona - now my fundraisers are done and out of the way I need lots of quick ideas to make 100 cards to me - I keep forgetting that I have that punch and some of the matching stamps too.
