Welcome to Sunday Night Blog Hopping with the wonderful Holiday Catalogue where we inspire and challenge you by CASEing the Catalogue - Copy and Selectively Edit - the projects in the catalogue for your creative inspiration. This week, we are sharing from the lovely Presents and Pines Chapter.
And the other exciting new this week, is that this is our 100th hop - how FANTASTIC is that!!!!!
And I've been inspired by this lovely card on the left - which features elements from the Christmas Pines Suite and the Holly Berry Suite.
I really do love those Pretty Pines thinlits and the combination with the holly leaves looks great!!
My card is almost identical to the one in the catalogue - the only difference being that I used the Wonderful Wreath framelit for my central background piece.
because I love him so much, I just could not resist inking up the old Father Christmas again. So I've CASED this card from page 23.
My card is a little more washed out looking (I've a feeling it's time to reink my Early Espresso Ink Pad - it's been getting a bit of a workout lately!), but I still love the 'old world' feeling of my card.
Two of my favourite things - watercolouring and vintage.
I've used the very useful White Stampin' Chalk Marker for the beard and fur trim.
Now it's time for you to continue hopping around the team. onto Kelly's cute little tag project, and make sure you visit Lou's blog - our guest designer this week!!

Hello and Welcome to our SUO Challenge - using holiday papers!!
The team has put together some wonderful projects using holiday papers to celebrate all sorts of holidays!!!
I've chosen to use some of the gorgeous This Christmas Paper and sponged it to give it an aged vintage look. I've used the wonderful Star of Night stamp set too.
And I've even stamped and sponged inside the card - and it looks great! (I don't usually get around to embellishing the inside of a card - but boy it's so wonderfully finished with the inside coordinating with the card!)
Now it's your turn - grab some papers and join in the fun with our challenge using Holiday Papers!!
Welcome to Sunday Night Blog Hopping with the wonderful Holiday Catalogue where we inspire and challenge you by CASEing the Catalogue - Copy and Selectively Edit - the projects in the calaogue for your creative inspiration. This week, we are sharing some gorgeous tags!!
I've been inspired by this Santa Tag on the front of the catalogue - I love the colours and the slightly vintage look of the catalogue tag, and I've taken it further using the divinely traditional Father Christmas stamp set. I LOVE this look for Santa and I'm so excited to have finally inked this wonderful image!! I'm grateful to our blog for making me get it out and use it!!
The main image is stamped with Early Espresso and then watercoloured and then I've sponged a little Soft Suede around the edges to give it a vintage feel. The little extras you can see are some Burlap Ribbon, Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine (from the Bakers Twine Trio Pack) and some Cherry Cobbler ribbon (from the Silky Taffeta Ribbon Combo Pack) I love the way we can get extra value when purchasing bundles and packs of our favourite products!!
