Tartan Stampers Christmas 2010 Blog Hop

The Tartan Stampers Team have been making the most of the snowy weather and making some lovely projects featuring a Christmas Theme.

Thank you for joining me from  Kara's blog, you will have seen some lovely projects there.

I have been experimenting with the new Christmas Stamps Delightful Decorations.  The album is a variation on a design by Andrea Walford.

Tri Shutter Album - closed

The colours I have used are Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Crumb Cake.  I also used the new scallop trim corner punch, oval and scalloped oval punches, extra large ornament punch, silver elastic cord and Old Olive satin ribbon.

This would make the perfect gift for a special occasion and could easily be adapted to suit any event i.e. wedding, new baby, first day of school.

My next projects feature the Contempo Christmas stamps.  These cards and gift tags featured in a recent class that I ran and came from an idea I saw on the In Love With Stamping Forum .  Again I have used the same colour combination of Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive but these cards feature the eyelet border punch and again use the old olive satin ribbons.

These gift tags are the perfect way to use up your small bits of card and ribbon.
