Autumn/Winter Catalogue Blog Hop 2013.

Welcome to the Autumn/ Winter Catalogue 2013 Blog Hop. I hope that you enjoyed Julie's post for those who have hopped over to my blog from hers HERE
I had fun card making with a fellow demonstrator and another friend on Friday Afternoon. I had a play with her Merry Little Christmas Stamp Set from the new Catalogue. I really enjoyed using two Stampin' Write Markers, Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler, to colour the stamp in. I was impressed by the sharp definition of the image.
The Ornament was stamped and punched out using the Christmas Collectibles Bundle. I added some Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine and hung it from a branch punched using the Bird Builder Punch.
The Whisper White Card stock was embossed with the Fancy Fan Folder and the Primrose Petals Card stock with the Beautifully Baroque Folder which is my new all time favourite!
The card was finished off with some Seam Binding Ribbon and two Rhinestones.

The same Ornament Stamp was used here in a landscape format.
I put two strips of the Season of Style Designer Washi Tape on to Whisper White card stock which had been punched with the Scallop Border Punch along the bottom edge.
Notice that the Ornament Stamp can be used for stamping on the background card stock.
I finished it off with some Cherry Cobbler 1 inch Ribbon.
The sentiment is from Petite Pairs.

This time I stamped and punched out three ornaments and put them on Crumb Cake card stock which I had put through the Big Shot using  the Floral Frames Dies.I embossed the smaller one with the Fancy Fan Folder and sponged the edges with Cherry Cobbler ink.
The greeting is from the More Merry Messages set which is now available even though it is not in the Autumn/ Winter Catalogue.

I have changed the colour combo here to Coastal Cabana and Silver. These compliment the Winter Frost Speciality Designer Series Paper.
The Encore Metallic Silver Ink Pad was used for the silver bauble. The Gorgeous Grunge stamp set put in an appearance as did the Labels Framelits, Adorning Accents Framelits and the new Silver 1/8 inch Ribbon.

Another card with the Coastal Cabana/ Silver colour scheme.
I have used the Winter Frost DSP again for the Framelit and the strip across the top.
The sentiment is from the Greetings of the Season Stamp Set which has returned from last year but is not in the Catalogue.
The 1/8 inch Silver Ribbon finishes off the baubles and, thankfully, it is easy to tie into a bow.

Now we are moving on to the Festive Flurry Bundle.
I have added Bermuda Bay to give a contrast.
The different stamps in this set layer up well especially if you use Stampin' Dimensionals to make the card more 3D.
The sentiment is from More Merry Messages.

This card was cased from Pinterest. You can see the original HERE. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and only one layer of 1/8 inch Silver Ribbon.

Thanks to Diane Lloyd for letting me have a go with her Snowflake Soiree Stamp Set and Northern Flurry Embossing folder on Friday afternoon.
I added a 3D snowflake to the embossed card stock. The Merry sentiment is from that stamp set but the Christmas sentiment is from the Merry Little Christmas Set which I used on the first card.
