{12 Weeks of Christmas} Week 7 -- Product Focus: Ornament Punch

I've really enjoyed using the Ornament punch this season.  As you can see from the following projects, I've used it in conjunction with the Tags til Christmas set (see the second image), or I've used it in other ways.
I stamped the image of the sweet dog from Storybook Friends and then punched the ornament, holding the punch upside down.

I stamped and punched in the same order with the Tags til Christmas set...

I love this non-traditional color scheme for Christmas!  Melon Mambo, Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive...

The following project was created to simulate this runway show from the Runway Inspired Challenge (such a fun idea for a challenge blog!):

 I stamped and inked the ornament image from Tags til Christmas in three different colors, punched them, and adhered them slightly apart to mimic the lines in the forward-facing model's dress...

 I made this card, using the negative of the ornament punch.  I first punched the ornament and then centered the bigger sheet of card stock in the scallop circle (it's easier to center the image and handle the card stock when you do it this way).  Then I adhered the ribbon to the flipside of the Baja Breeze scallop to make it look like a candy cane (I used Whisper White and Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon).

Please let me know if you have any questions...  Wishing you the magic and peace of the season!
