Crazy Crafters Blog Hop September 2015 - Holiday Catalogue




It's that time again; Crazy Crafters Monthly Blog Hop, come join the fun and see our inspiration from our projects featuring items from the 2015 Holiday Catalogue.



There are so many fantastic items in the the Holiday Catalogue - where do I begin!


I fell in love with the Snow Place stamp set when I set eyes on it - so versatile, you get to pick and choose how you dress up your little snow buddies   with the Snow Friends Framelits dies and create unique characters - mix and match with all of their accessories!

Remember- if you purchase the Snow Place Stamp set and the Snow Friends Framelits as as a bundle you save 15%



First card of the rank here is my daughter's choice - she wanted to see the adorable penguin in action, except she couldn't choose how to dress them, so I ended up with 2 cards!



I've used Whipser White with Soft Sky cardstock and ink, I edged the card using my two-way glue pen then dipped in Dazzling Diamonds.


Smoky Slate and Cherry Cobbler used here for a different look.  I embossed the Whisper White with the new Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder - it is just divine, I added a little Dazzling Diamonds to the Santa hat too.

I couldn't stop here, I hadn't used the Snowmen!  Consultation with my daughter had the large snowman with buttons, ear muffs and a bow tie.  I was on a role and thought - why not try a step card?



I created the snow hills by cutting several ovals and then trimming them and overlaying on each other, each is edged with Dazzling Diamonds.  The trees are from the Peaceful Pines Bundle - they are first stamped with Old Olive, then with Versamark, Heat & Stick powder, then Dazzling Diamonds.  I used Fast Fuse and Dimensionals to attach and layer depending if I wanted to have the snow flat or raised.
