Day 3 Krafty Ornaments

Today for Day 3 I have a Christmas card to share! I made about 10 of these! I love this stamp set by Stampin Up and the coordinating punch that goes with it! Super easy ornaments! Here is the card:

I based the colors for my ornaments on the patterned paper by Bo Bunny. I used this paper also for another card, I just love it! The Merry Christmas is from the PTI set Holiday Button Bits. I used colorbox and PTI pigment ink for the stamped ornaments. I really like to use pigment when I stamp solid images, just heat it with your heat gun for a bit to speed up the drying process. I looped some silver cord and taped it on the back of the ornament, I thought of doing the hanging with bows again but thought to be different, and well it was way easier especailly since my darling hubby did this! I also used an EK Success punch for the bottom border but realize that looking at the punch I have no idea the name of it! Sorry! But in all honesty me and this punch have a not so great relationship. Although adore it I do!

Of course I have much more to say but I have been "wasting" a lot of time online ordering family photo cards and our family pics. About 2 weeks ago we had some natural light photos taken and they turned out just amazing! I hope to write out my cards and hand/send them out this weekend. I am doing both a handmade Christmas card and a photo digital card. I thought of combining both but I just got the photo's back this week. I want to keep the photos as a surprise until my friends and family have them in hand so for now I will just share the one of me and hubby:

Until tomorrow with Day 4, maybe some buttons?
