Happy Friday, friends! Did you see last week’s Christmas release from The Greetery? I loved everything in it, but I have to admit my favorites from the release were the Jumbo Curiosity Ornaments. I didn’t get to spend as much time with them as I wanted to last week, so I made time this week especially for them. I spent a whole day dedicated to Christmas cards, and ended up with 8!
I started with The beautiful Jumbo Curiosity Bell Ornament. I think this bell is absolutely darling, and it made a perfect substitute for the “o” in Abundant Joy. I attached the letters and ornament to a Twinkle Background, and finished with a Christmas Pudding Bow.
I made a second card exactly the same, this time with a pink bell, and silver glitter paper.
My next card is also over on the Greetery Blog today.
I have never put turquoise and yellow together, but I am so glad I finally did! I am really happy with how this turned out. I knew I was going to have a turquoise background, and picked Aged Patina Distress Oxide ink to ink the ornaments with. I didn’t know what I wanted the second color to be, and wondered what Wild Honey Distress Oxide would look like. This is the end result. LOVE!
Since I always have pink in the back of mind while crafting, I thought it would be fun to make pink Christmas cards.
I started with a pink and white Twinkle background, then used an A2 Arches die to die-cut a window. I stenciled a bit of yellow in the window using an A2 Arches stencil, and Attached the card together. I finished the card with an Arched Holiday Sentiment.
I didn’t want to throw away the arch I had die-cut, so I used it to make a second pink card.
I backed the arch with a larger vellum arch, and attached it to a pink Pine & Berry Background. I finished the card with a Jumbo Curiosity Spire Ornament, and Arched Holiday Sentiment.
I used the same concept for my next two cards, this time using a black and gold Twinkle background.
I started with making an arched window, and stenciled inside the window. I added the Spire ornament and sentiment, and topped the ornament off with a red bow.
I used the die-cut arch to make the background for the window on my second card, and added a sweet red bell ornament. I finished the card with an Opposites Attract Holiday Sentiment.
My final card showcases the last two Jumbo Round Ornaments I had left over.
I did the same steps as I did with the other arched window cards, and used Lucky Clover to stamp the sentiment with.

I love all of them. That precious bow looks so wonderful on these ornaments. The twinkle background die is a must have. I’ll have to go back! Love your video and I think the bell ornament is my favorite on the cards you made, oh yeah, the black and red together, OMG. I am seeing a lot of pink this season, so you are right on trend.
These are just gorgeous! Love the ornaments and the color combos! They remind me so much of some special vintage ornaments I have that were my Mom’s. Really wanting to get a couple of these dies, particularly the bell!
