Bauble Inspiration

Thanks to Jenny for a fabulous Stampin' Up Extravaganza Day on Saturday, a very busy day but so much inspiration.

I had admired the mauve/blue colourway Jenny had used before so very much 'stole' the design we used to decorate our picture frame and made the design in to an 8x8 card (a new stock of which happened to come my way on Sunday after visiting the Sincerely Yours show!).

Using the dotted scallop ribbon border I finally managed to make the very pretty bottom layer - I couldn't master this at the weekend!

The baubles are all from the Delightful Decorations set and used the matching punch which I love. The sentiment is from our new set we came away with at the weekend - 'Pines & Poinsettias'. A set I wouldn't of chosen but am now feeling very inspired to use now.
A little bit of sparkle added with gems and stickles.

I hope you are pleased with me for actually making and posting some cards Janet!


  1. Lovely card Jill....we certainly did get lots of inspiration from Jenny. Hope you enjoyed Taunton?


  2. Well you had a double dose of craft at the weekend - didn't know about Taunton as well. This is a great colourway and how fortunate you already had that stamp set and punches. You certainly got a move on with making this one. I thought the poinsettia set was much better for real than it looked in the catalogue - not pictured to its best advantage I thought.

  3. love the card Jill, enjoyed the day on Saturday, wish I had known about Taunton, several people have asked where was I?
