Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop Caseing the Catty.
Our Challenge is all about seeing the Stampin' Up! catalogues with new eyes!!! We endeavour to Copy And Share Everything or Copy And Selectively Edit from the beautiful project illustrations.
This week we are focusing on the Festive Farmhouse chapter of the
Holiday Catalogue - pages 12 - 17.
My inspiration comes from the lovely projects illustrated for the
Illuminated Christmas stamp set on page 15.
I've kept to the same layout and really only changed up the colours. I've also added some background stamping from the lovely Night in Bethlehem stamp set.. There is also some totally sparkly glimmer paper too! The sparkle glimmer paper is from page 192 in the Annual Catalogue and the Merry Merlot comes from the Joyous Noel Glimmer paper on page 29.
The sparkle glimmer paper is 12" x 12" and the Joyous Noel paper is 6" x 6" and includes 8 sheets each of Copper, Tranquil Tide and Merry Merlot. Awesome!
I just loooooove this Christmas phrase and have often used it to write into Christmas cards over the years, so this was a definite addition to my purchases out of the new Holiday Catalogue
It's also really great to have another set that coordinates with the Graceful Glass suite that I already own. This lovely silver frame comes from the Stained Glass thinlets that coordinate with the Painted Glass stamp set. There are a couple of images in this Illuminated Christmas set that also coordinate with the Stained Glass thinlets!! - How cool is that!! The Poinsettia and the angel both work with the rose and butterfly thinlits! Stampin' Up! is so clever!!
These fonts in this stamp set are so beautiful! Are you ready to think about Christmas yet? I think I'll create some great cards just using this one stamp set!!
Please join in the fun with us and add your projects to the lineup at our facebook challenge page - you don't need to have a blog - just upload your project photo to the page! Easy peasy.
Until Next Time,
Love Julia x

What a lovely card! I love the addition of the stained glass star as well.ReplyDelete
Thank you! Gorgeous star!Delete
well I didn't know that about the thinlits- that is really clever. Your card is lovely Julia, and I think the blue background is much better than the catalogue, and the Bethlehem stamps are perfect too. What a stunning cardReplyDelete
Thankyiu Liz! I do like the blue for the night sky with the star in the sky!Delete
I love your version of this card Julia. I love the colours you've used and the addition of the star is perfect.ReplyDelete
Thank you Peta - I do love this star.Delete
Your card has so much pop, Julia! The star looks fabulous on the dark background and the Bethlehem city in the background also looks fabulous.ReplyDelete
Aw thank you Judy. This brightness is different for me!!Delete
