Stampin' Addicts New Catalog Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to Stop #1 on the Stampin' Addicts New Catalog Blog Hop.  There are 13 Stops along the hop and each stop connects to the one before and after so no matter where you begin you can complete the whole circle.  If you have arrived from Paula's Blog you have just been treated to her wonderful creations using the stamp set Moving Forward which is Stampin' Ups Ronald McDonald set this year.  Didn't she do a super job!  Ok so let's get "hopping"!  The stamp set I chose to focus on is Chock-Full Of Cheer, a very fun and cheerful Christmas set.
For my first card I chose to use the ornament stamp from the set and added it to the branch from the Betsy's Blossoms stamp set.  I love Christmas cards done on Crumb Cake, don't know why, just do. 
Stamp Sets: Chock-Full Of Cheer, Betsy's Blossoms
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Gumball Green, Very Vanilla
Inks: Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green
DSP: Be Of Good Cheer
Punches: 1 3/4" Circle, Scallop Trim Boarder
Other: Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine, 3/8" Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon, Dimensionals, Glue Dot, Adhesive, Paper Snips

For my second card I chose to make a smaller size note card. The finished size is 5" x 3 1/2".  I am so in love with the new Gumball Green color! Oh my! Love it!
For this card I stamp and punched our three of the ornaments and glued them together for a 3-D look.  I added a Cherry Cobbler Seambinding Bow to the top with a glue dot.
My last project is a little 3-D Project made with the Petite Pocket Die and Big Shot.  I used the same colors as in the other projects along with the following punches.
Punches: Snowflake, 1 3/8" Circle, 1 1/4" Circle.
BLOG CANDY ALERT!!!  I will be giving away the projects I made for the Hop.  So if you'd like to get your hands on the projects I made, please leave me a comment along with your e-mail or blog address so I can reach you if you are the winner.  And now it's time to Hop on over to Kim's Blog and see the wonderful creations she has come up with using the set For the Birds.  Have a great Hop everyone!

So cute! I love Crumb Cake for Christmas cards, too. I guess it's just the old fashioned homey feeling they evoke.
