You may have just arrived here from Connie Babbert’s blog as we, the designers for the Create With Connie and Mary Holiday Collection, wind up each of the four weeks with a blog hop! And this week marks the fourth and final week of this session – so sad – but I’m SO pleased with all the gift giving and decorating ideas I now have for this holiday season! The projects and tutorials were all amazing!!
My project and tutorial this week uses this, my favorite stamp set of the Holiday Catalogue, Wondrous Wreath, so here is another idea for this stamp set:
This card is quick and easy as it requires no cutting with framelits or punching. I stamped the wreath images onto white cardstock and added a ribbon bow for some texture. Should you require many Christmas cards this year, this is a card you could mass produce with ease!!
You may be wondering where I found such thin Cherry Cobbler ribbon…
…well, I used the 1″ sheer linen ribbon in the catalogue and sliced off a 6″ length of the edging and then tied that into a bow.
Stamps – Wondrous Wreath
Ink & Paper – Trim the Tree DSP, Pistachio Pudding, Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
Accessories – corner rounder punch, Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen Ribbon

I was SOOOOO happy when the Endless Wishes photopolymer stamp set we were introduced to late last season, became available AGAIN this year in the Holiday Catalogue! I did not end up getting it last year so it’s pretty new to me and I was excited to get it out to create this weeks blog hop project!
I created a soft snowflake background by white embossing the snowflakes onto Crumb Cake cardstock and then sponging the edges with white ink. I used some embossing folders on the cardstock banners along with glimmer paper. And of course…rhinestones always finish things off nicely.
It’s a pretty easy card to put together but I really am happy with it’s beautiful simplicity. What are you inspired to create this week?
Stamps – Endless Wishes
Ink & Paper – Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler, Glimmer Paper
Accessories – white embossing powder, rhinestone gems, Decorative Label punch, oval punch, dimensional, baker’s twine

I’ve had much fun with the Festival of Trees stamp set this week so couldn’t resist using it for my challenge project as well!
I was dying to try my new Confetti Stars punch and am quite happy with it as an angle punch on this card! This led me to a non traditional color combination of Bermuda Bay, Night of Navy, Pear Pizzazz and Rose Red. Not all Christmas cards need to be red and green, right?!
