Creation Station - Celebrating the Season!

Welcome to Just Julie B Stampin'! Our theme this month is Celebrate the Season. And I'm excited to share a couple simple, but stunning ideas that you can make super quickly for the holidays. This ornament takes about 5 minutes from prepping everything to hanging it on the tree! And the card is a pretty close to 5 minutes too (maybe 6 minutes ;) ).

Since my first look at the Holiday Catalog, I was in love with the Dashing Deer set - so I decided to use that for my card! I used the Silver Foil Edged Cards (so nice that these are all prepped and have a coordinating envelope too - fold it in half). Then I glued a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Dashing Along Designer Series Paper. to leave just the silver edge showing. I added the saying on a Stitched Circle. Tied around the Cherry Cobbler Cotton Twine, and then Silver Foil flowers with Rhinestone Jewel centers, and of course a Silver Foil "Rudolph", with a Cherry Cobbler colored Rhinestone Jewel nose (I used the Stampin' Blends for that)!

This card came together so quickly - and I love it's simplicity, but elegance!

I got these clear ornament balls from Michael's Craft Store - they were a bargain at 25 of them for $20, but I got them on sale for $8!!

Then I filled one with twelve 1/2" x 6" strips of Dashing Along Designer Series Paper strips. I just rolled them into ringlets using a skewer stick - so quick and easy! I pushed all of those through the top of the open ornament, and added three 1/4" x 6" Silver Glimmer Paper, rolled up the same way. Add the ribbon around the top and a piece of the Cherry Cobbler Cotton Twine for a 'hanger' - and wah lah!! 

I Love how this could easily be adapted with any set of papers, or another stamp set too. It's always nice to have something quick to make when you need it!

I hope you enjoyed your stop by, and I can't wait to see what's next! Click on the link below to see what the fabulous Sara Nell-Langland has created ~

I am loving the Silver foil-edged card, Julie. The Silver reindeer is a perfect fit. And such a sweet ornament too. D x

I make the ornaments and put invitations in them, our 50th anniversary party, party invitations, etc. I love to see them and reminisce each Christmas.
