Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamp It Group Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek Blog Hop. You are likely coming here from Mary Bush's blog. If you happened to just stumble across my blog, why not take a minute and visit all the blog participants by using the previous and next buttons at the end of this post to see all the great ideas and projects. I can't believe it has been two whole months since I've last posted. Where does the time go?? I'll tell you where, horse shows.... lol. Although I do love showing horses it sure does take up a lot of time. I seen the info for this blog hop as I was getting ready to leave for a show at the end of July. I knew I had to get in on the fun. Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday so I couldn't pass up the opportunity to make a Halloween card with our new Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog supplies. The supplies I used will be available to order on September 1st. So, without further ado, here is my project:
I always have the hardest time showing the details of my cards in a picture. This card has lots of glitter accents that just don't show up. Both spider webs as well as the word "Spooky" are accented with glitter. Unfortunately you cant see it :(

I decided last minute (midnight on Friday) to go ahead and make a Christmas themed card as well.

I originally wanted to make a shaker card for this one. I colored the framelit cuts to help them show up a bit better behind the velum but it still didn't show as much as I liked so I decided to adhere the window flat instead. I think it turned out ok regardless. I had lighting issues with this picture as well (as expected at midnight with no natural light to use) but you get the idea :)
There are so many ways to use these sets. Stay tuned for more sneak peeks ;-)
