INKreators Blog Hop - 2015 Holiday Catalogue Favourites


I'm so excited, I've had a lot of exciting milestones on my blog recently. I reached 100,000 page views last week and then today this is my 200th post on my blog and what better way to have my 200th post than to have The INKreators Blog Hop.

You may have come from the super cool, super fun Liv Ingle or you may have started here. Either way you are in for a creative treat with a small but exceptionally talented group of ladies!

This hop we are showing some of our favourite products from the new Holiday Catalogue that starts TODAY!!!!!! SO exciting that you can all order from it now too! Check it out here!

I'm using a stamp set that really caught my eye for some beautiful colouring in, 'All Ye Faithful'.  When I first saw this set it really reminded me of the Nativity Scene that I purchased about 15yrs ago.

My card is like two cards in one, so scroll on down to see what I've made for you today.


I have used the new Sleigh Ride Edgelits because I thought the little 'township' was Bethlehem and that was very fitting for the theme of my card today.


The night time sky was sponged with Night of Navy and Soft Sky and then embossed with the new Softly Falling Embossing folder.  Makes it look like stars in the sky.


And then when you open the card we have a pop-up manger/stable  scene. When I first saw this set along with colouring these images in I really wanted to create a pop-up scene. This is the first ever pop-up card I've done and were a few things that I needed to work out. I think I got there in the end.


Did you know that there are about 15 different colours used to colour in the images??!! WOW, Right?? Took a lot of time and patience, that's for sure!


The stable frame was first stamped using the Hardwood background stamp and then cut so that it looked proportional in size to the characters in the scene.


I'm really loving how the card turned out and how close to my idea in my head it turned out to be. Sometimes when I do get ideas the finished product can be way different to what I had originally thought. Sometimes for the good and sometimes for the bad and that is when its 'back to the drawing board' for some new ideas!


It's all finished off with a Gold Glimmer star and some gold accents!

I hope that I've inspired you today with some of the new Holiday Catalogue products  so that you can start on your Christmas cards and crafts today!
