Swirl Baubles


Hi, it's the end of the school holidays today, back to work tomorrow! I can't complain as I've had a pretty relaxing break!

I used my new Memory Box swirl ornament die to create these baubles and am 
 going to link up to a few challenges.

Inkspirational has a colour challenge where you can use any two or all three of the colours in your project.


I diecut the baubles from white card and coloured them with distress inks,  picked raspberry, peacock feathers & iced spruce. The ornament base is cut from white pearlized card though it's hard to see in the photo.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is going dotty! That'll be me in a few days back at work LOL!!
I used my swiss dots embossing folder to add some texture to the base.

Christmas Card Challenges has an inspiration photo if you need it this week. I made baubles instead of lights.



Materials used: Memory Box Classic and Swirl ornament and crisp bows dies; Swiss Dots embossing folder; white pearlized card; distress inks;  bling and sentiment sticker from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)
