Next Year I'll Be Wiser

The Christmas countdown tells me I am fast running out of time and I am still making my own Xmas cards. Next year I will be wiser and when my class are making them at Stamp-a-Stacks, I will be making them too! I have been having fun making more cards using Delightful Decorations and the matching Ornament Punch, both of which I totally ADORE (and they were a big hit at the team meeting on Monday!).

Lots of texture on this first one with ribbon and embossed shapes. I love this snowflake paper from the Ski Slope set.

A touch of bright with some Rich Razzleberry, Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo. The small stamps that come in the set make a great background.

Love red and white together (not surprisingly, as red is my favourite colour!). Cased this one but don't know where from! Thanks for the inspiration, whoever you are.
Some Baja breeze and chocolate chip, cased from Jan Tink. Nice to shake it up with non traditional colours every once in a while!

And some gift tags too, which this stamp and punch combo are PERFECT for. So quick and easy - punched the base from cardstock that was folded to make a double shape. Stamp the two designs, punch them out then adhere to the card one. Punch a hole, add cord and presto! All finished. I think Santa might use a whole bunch of these this year!

Not to freak you out, but have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? Me neither - barely started, in fact! Aaaaarrrrrgggghhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Surprised u can't hear my screams echoing urs darl!! I have not started and usually by this time I am well and truly got things sussed!! The cards/tags ROCK. I hope the combo finds it's way down under in one of the catty's next year. Slowly (an very at that!!) building up the Chrissy cards...but a long way to go!! My fave is def the red/white one too...being a Dragons/Swans supporter and all....LOL!!!

Love all these ornament cards Kez, my fave would be the white-and-blue-Cuttlebug textured and punched card. Like the use of the ribbon for the "strings". I also love the red-and-white one which is stamped with the co-ordinating set. I've splurged and got an ornament punch coming but decided I didn't need the stamp set. Dumb aren't I? Love KimT
