I think by now you are realizing how much I am loving the Holiday Catalog LOL – I just cannot tear myself away from all of the wonderful items in it especially all of the amazing stamps!!!

Today I decided to play with the Holiday Home Bundle again but this time, used it to make a Christmas card that has a crisp blue, black & white color scheme…

And here it is…I cannot believe Christmas is on it’s way – we are still having 100 degree days here in Texas!!!


I love the crispness of this card – it almost has a frosty feel to it because of the white & blue colors…you can find the stamps & dies featured in the Holiday Home Bundle on pg 16 of the Holiday Catalog.

The card base…is simply Lost Lagoon cardstock onto which I layered a piece of Basic Black – and around both I wrapped a piece of Lost Lagoon 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon (pg 207) and finished with a bow to the side…

The tag…I stamped the words ‘baby it’s cold outside’ using a stamp from the set Holiday Cheer (pg 35 Holiday Catalog) – this set is part of the Project Life collection and features a bunch of fab holiday themed small stamps which are perfect for uses such as on tags…

I punched the tag using my 1 1/4″ Circle Punch, threaded through a piece of White Bakers Twine (pg 206) and adhered in place…


The feature panelthe base is a piece of Whisper White cardstock onto which I directly stamped the lamp in black ink.

The houses…I stamped the houses using Versamark Ink (pg 210), sprinkled on White Embossing Powder and heat set them using my Heat Tool (pg 213).  I then cut them out using the perfectly co-ordinating house shaped dies in Homemade Holidays Framelits and attached them to my panel.

The moon…to create this I punched out a circle of Smoky Slate cardstock using my 1 3/8″ Circle Punch (pg 221), and stamped Santa & his reindeer flying through the night over it…


The finishing touches…I added some small snowflakes stamped in Lost Lagoon ink to the side of the house to pull the blue color from the base & ribbon into the panel of the card and added a small white snowflake sequin from Frosted Sequins (pg 22 Holiday Catalog) just next to the tag…
