STAMPlorations CUTplorations December Challenge ...

A new month and time for a new CUTplorations challenge at STAMPlorations - this month's inspiration:

It will be no surprise that the image is about Christmas - I hope you have all your cards ready to send, if not then why not take inspiration from the photograph and get making!!!

I've taken the idea of hanging images as decorations:

I die cut three circles from a left over piece of card created with alcohol inks and also from vellum.  I then die cut the circles using a section of a cover plate die to create the pattern and adhered them to the vellum to create Christmas baubles.  Sometimes it pays to look at your dies with a fresh eye and see if you can use them in a way they were not intended to be used. I stamped the sentiment using part of a Christmas Typographia stamp resulting in a card made by selective die cutting and selective stamping!!

I used:
STAMPlorations - Bloomtangled 1 Cover Plate Die
                              - Shaker Balloons #2 Star
                              - Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Dies
                              - Peace, Love and Joy Christmas Typographia Stamp

I look forward to seeing all of your creations.



  1. Great way to create baubles, Elaine!

  2. Love how you used the photo as inspiration for your card Elaine. Love those colourful baubles and that sentiment.
