It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!! Yes, it’s my favorite time of the year!

Last Saturday I had my 5th Annual Holiday Stamp Camp (it was awesome!) and here are two of the projects we created. My group of loyal stampers had a wonderful time and the food was pretty good too!
Both of these projects are CASED (copy and share everything) from other Stampin Up demonstrators. The luminaire was CASED from Jan B and the Sleigh Ride card was CASED from Meg Loven Stamps but they both were so beautiful, I couldn’t resist. Thanks ladies!
The Sleigh Ride card was so easy to make. It’s actually a 4 1/4″ by 4 1/4″ square card which will still fit in our SU medium envelopes. I used a 2″ circle punch for the inside of the silver metallic doily on whispher white and basic gray cardstock. I put the basic gray card stock circle through the Bigshot with the sleigh and reindeer edgelit die. I embossed the whisper white background piece (4″ by 4″) with the Softly Falling embossing folder. I stamped Jingle all the way in basic gray ink and added the wooden Snowflake Elements and an Iced Rhinestone to complete the card.
Below is the beautiful luminaire we created at the Stamp Camp. Some of the stampers used red foil and some used gold foil for the ornaments. I gave them all a flickering battery operated candle for the inside. What a festive item to add to your holiday mantle or table. The base of the luminaire is made from the Irresistible DSP that came out in the Spring 2015 catty. The stars and swiss dots were the perfect touch for this luminaire. Four pieces of velum cardstock were used behind the foil ornaments that made this piece look like frosted glass.
The 1/8″ red striped ribbon was tied into a bow and added to the top of each ornament.
Here are the measurements that Jan B has provided.
DSP cut at 11″ X 5 7/8″
Score on the 11″ side at 2 5/8″, 5 1/4″, 7 7/8″ and 10 1/2″
Score on the 5 7/8″ side at 2 5/8″
Cut from the bottom up to the 2 5/8″ score line and totally remove the 1/2′ piece on the end. (you won’t need that)
The 4 pieces of velum for behind each ornament are 2 3/8 by 3″.
