… which I have to admit, would not be so quick if I had to cut the tree out by hand. The digital download from Multi Step Snowy Pines can be found HERE.  If only decorating the real tree was this easy. 😉

Multi Step Ornaments from Kitchen Sink Stamps

With my finger, I smeared a small amount of Rock Candy – Distress Stickles, over each ornament to make them sparkle. After the ornaments dried, I used a 1/16″ hole punch at the top of each ornament and ran a couple of inches of silver cord through each one. Attached each ornament with a pop dot. Pierced holes where I wanted to “hang” the ornaments. Starting from the front side of my card, I threaded each end of the silver cord (with an ornament attached) through the “hanging” holes. From the back side of the card, I pulled both ends of the cord until taught, but not too hard –  you don’t want to rip the ornament. Tape both ends of the cord down in the back. Repeat until all ornaments are “hung”.

Ducky Holiday from Kitchen Sink Stamps

                                                                    

 Card #1 uses the 2 of the new sets, Multi Step Rubber Ducky and Multi Step Things 4 Ducky & Teddy for a fun Christmas card. Multi Step Ducky was inspired by KSS Forum Member, SuperJen. She was the winner of last June’s forum Giveaway Game and her stamp suggestion was a Rubber Ducky set. I am so glad she did because I have been having so much fun stamping him (or her). 😉
