Farmhouse Christmas – What’s New at Stampin’ Up! Blog Hop

Welcome! I am happy that you are joining us for our hop today. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrator from around the world who are Hoppin’ With Exciting Ideas to share with you. Today we will be featuring products from the new Holiday Catalog, and I selected Farmhouse Christmas!

The funny thing is, I didn’t make a Christmas card! I wanted to show you that the products don’t always have to be used for the obvious reasons. I actually went for a more fall themed color scheme, and made it an “any occasion” card, using only stamps and dies from the Farmhouse Christmas Bundle.

I know I wanted to make a card like this the moment I saw this set, and I got to use the Stampin’ Blends markers to color it all in. I used a whole bunch of them, too! I’m glad there are some new colors in the Holiday Catalog, those came in handy. Two fo the new colors, Cajun Craze and Mango Melody, helped out with the windows and the roof.  Other colors used were Old Olive, Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler,  Soft Suede and Bronze. I could play all day with this set and these markers!
The fantastic fence also comes with the framelits, and I cut it out of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper – instant fence texture!
(Just a note on the fence… I cut two of them and glued them together to get the whole width of the card.)

For the colorful sky, I sponged a bit of many colors together. I used Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, and Rich Razzleberry. I made sure not to press too hard, as I wanted it to be pretty light. I added some Wink of Stella to the windows for the final sparkle.

I hope you enjoyed my card today, showing you how easy it is to make non-Holiday cards from the Holiday Catalog!
