Christmas Ornament from Holiday Catalog

I just absolutely love the holiday ornament that is on the front of SU's Holiday Catalog. One of my stampin' sisters made a video on how to make it. There are two ways to make it depending on which way you want to go. In this video she uses Designer Series Paper to make the ornaments. The other way that you can do it is to stamp the ornaments using the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set. If you use the stamp set it enables you to make use of  any color ink and paper you like for different effects. If you don't want to do all that stamping, then you can just use DSP. The supplies that I used to make the ornament are listed below the video, here is what I created...If you would like to order the supplies to make this ornament for yourself or s a gift to someone for the holidays, just send me an email and I will help you on your way. Thank you for stopping by and visiting with me at The Stamp Kaffe....see you next time...
