Holiday Home...Finally!

I'm finally getting caught up a little on my posting here.  I realized that I hadn't posted the samples of the cards we made at my Stamping Escape Class last month.  They were great cards made using the Holiday Home Bundle from the 2014 Holiday Catalog, and everyone loved them!

This first card is made using the Note Cards & Envelopes.  They are the perfect size for a quick thank-you, thinking of you, etc.  And, you get 20 of them in a package!  The idea was cased almost entirely from something I found on Pinterest.  It was pinned originally from

The Halloween card was an idea that one of my team members (Jen Wade) made for our September Shoebox Swap.  I adapted the Designer Series Paper to be smaller so that I could have enough from one package.  The little house is embossed with white embossing powder and then cut out using the coordinating Framelits dies.

Although it takes a little time, this fall house was colored in using the amazing Blendabilities markers from Stampin' Up!  I am amazed everytime that I use them at what great color blending they give.

This final card was super simple and would make a great Christmas card to send to friends and family!  The houses are stamped in Memento Ink Tuxedo Black onto Basic Gray and then cut out using the coordinating Framelits dies.  The moon is a 2-1/2" Circle punched from Hello Honey card stock, and the santa and sleigh were stamped onto it with the Tuxedo Black ink as well.  A strip of Lost Lagoon 3/8" Silky Taffeta Ribbon tied at the top add just the right touch to this card.

Hope you've enjoyed the card ideas....
Happy stamping!
