Christmas Collectibles Sneak Peek, MOJO301, PP153 and Merry Monday

I hope you don't mind that I'm back with another Christmas Card today, Stampers! I'm really having fun playing with new products. Today's card features the Christmas Collectibles Stamp Set and coordinating Christmas Ornament Punch. I'm so excited about these two new products, I was wishing for a new ornament set with a punch! The beautiful DSP is called Season of Style, and features the colors Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Whisper White, Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip. These great geometric patterns are great for anytime, not just Christmas!

I'm playing with three challenges again today. The sketch is from Mojo Monday and I love it! I might just use it a second time this week.

I couldn't resist playing along a second time with The Paper Players Christmas in July challenge,

or the Merry Monday Anything Goes challenge. I hope they both don't mind seeing me twice in the same week!

For my focal point, first I cut the oval with my Ovals Framelit. The ornament was stamped twice, once in Cherry Cobbler and once in Old Olive. The Cherry Cobbler layer was punched with the Christmas Ornament Punch, and the center Old Olive layer was punched with a 1/2" Circle Punch. I added some Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine and a rhinestone for embellishment, and layered things up with Dimensionals.
