It's only 10 days until the release of the new Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue.  I have a sneak peek for you today, of the very cute Holiday Home stamp set and matching Homemade Holiday framelits.  I'm in Christmas card mode, but can see so many possibilities for this lovely bundle of products.

First up is a card I made using the Holiday Home stamps, and the Trim the Tree paper stack (great sized sheets for card-making).  I merrily stamped and coloured the houses, and attached the panel to my card - then realised I was going to die-cut them.  Let's just say I did this intentionally, to show how you don't "have" to cut out the houses!

Stamps: Holiday Home (avail. 28/8)
Card: Crumb Cake, Whisper White
DSP: Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper stack (avail. 28/8)
Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento inkpad, Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler stampin' pads, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Smoky Slate Blendabilities
Other: Modern Label punch, sponge dauber, Cherry Cobbler seam binding, glue dots
My second card uses paper from the same paper stack, but this time I stamped and coloured the houses on Crumb Cake card.  I've used a couple of my new favourite "star accessories" on this card:
Stamps: Holiday Home (avail. 28/8)
Card: Garden Green, Whisper White, Crumb Cake
DSP: Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack (avail. 28/8)
Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento inkpad, Garden Green and Crumb Cake stampin' pads, Garden Green stampin' write marker, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities, White Chalk marker
Other: Lucky Stars embossing folder (avail. 28/8), Confetti Stars border punch (avail. 28/8), Cherry Cobbler seam binding, Modern Label punch, glue dots, sponge dauber
