If you have just hopped onto my blog, you're in the right place! I'm your first stop. Here's my creation using the Very Merry Christmas stamp set:
So as you can see I decided to make a couple of Christmas ornaments using this very versatile stamp set. I used our exclusive Artiste Cricut cartridge which just happens to coordinate with this stamp set. Basically that means, that the shape of the ornament stamp from the set can be cut using the Artiste -- I didn't need to use my scissors to cut out the image!
The image can be found on page 79, E9, Shift, 3D Object, < HoHoHo > cut at 3". I stamped the images with Cranberry and Olive ink. Each ornament is made from 6 of the ornaments. Obviously, you can add more of the images to make a "fuller" ornament.
