BRIGHT BAUBLES CLING STAMP SET
Stamp bright and beautiful Christmas baubles with the Bright Baubles Stamp Set. The delicate line images are bold enough to be used on their own, stamped in just ink, or heat embossed. Or you can color them using your favorite coloring tools and techniques. The ornament images are large enough to make tags for gifts or treats for neighbors and friends. You can also stamp them on your annual Christmas cards. The greetings are designed so you can mix and match and customize the sentiments for all your Christmas projects.

DELICATE BAUBLES DIES
Create opulent ornaments for cards or tags with the Delicate Baubles Dies. The dies cut out full ornament shapes and delicate overlays to create more detailed ornaments. Dies are sized perfectly for large tags for gift and treat packages. The die set includes a ribbon piece to create the illusion of hanging ornaments. Mix and match ornaments and overlays for a variety of looks, or use Paper Snips Scissors to cut apart the images to create unique elements.

Eden’s Garden Holiday Gift Box & Card

Eden’s Garden Holiday Gift Box & Card

create these projects with Eden's Garden from Stampin' Up! Laura Milligan Demonstrator Christmas project

For my Facebook Live Take 2 I shared two more projects featuring the beautiful Eden’s Garden Collection of products!

Eden's Garden Collection

You can click below to watch how both go together.

It was really fun to create this fancy bow for my box – and it’s actually fun and easy to do!  I used 2 strips of the Evening Evergreen Cotton Paper – both strips measuring 4 x 12 inches.  You can see the step by step way to create this in the recording above.

how to create a puffy bow for packaging by Laura Milligan Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Eden's Garden Cotton Paper

I received a lot of nice comments about the tag I had made and shared on Monday’s Facebook Live and thought it would be fun to create a card using the same idea -and so I did just that .  I used the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder for the background panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock.  I was a Music Major in college (proud Alum of the University of Michigan!)  and so I was curious whether this embossing folder was actually a song, or just a made of score to look like a real song – so I took the Embossing Folder to my piano – and played the notes – and realized that the folder is actually the script for Joy to the World!  So cool!!!!   So now whenever I use this folder, I will think of one of my favorite hymns – and hope you do as well!

By adding some Cherry Cobbler cardstock into the Eden’s Garden colors of Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen, I created a Christmas card – bringing more versatility to this collection!  the Designer Paper is cut at 1 x 3 inches.

My circle is cropped from the smallest circle of the Layering Circle dies, and stamped with Evening Evergreen ink.  Greeting is from the Tidings and Trimmings stamp set from our Annual Catalog.
