ICS Blog Hop, Brightly Lit Christmas

Hi Crafty Friends!

It's the first Wednesday of the month so it's ICS blog hop time. This month we are featuring products from our new Holiday catalog. It is a lovely catalog full of great products for all of your holiday crafting. If you need a catalog, let me know.

I am show-casing the Brightly Lit Christmas stamp set and the coordinating Christmas Lamppost Thinlits Dies. On my first scroll through the Holiday catalog, this set caught my eye because of the lamppost. The Christmas lamppost has always been a favorite of my husband. We have a lamppost ornament for our tree and he gets to hang it. This was my first play with the set and I love it!

I used lots of new products on this card. The background paper and the DSP in the oval (I'm still loving the Stitched Shapes Framelits) are from the Christmas Around the World DSP. I think the key to this card is the little bit of So Saffron card stock in the light and the gold Foil Snowflake (the snowflakes might be my most favorite embellishment in the catalog). If you need any other info about the card, let me know. And just so you know, my husband really liked the card.

This card is part of my upcoming Christmas Card Club Class on September 12, at 10am and 7pm. For more info on the classes, check out my Facebook page or website.

Here are the other cards will be making in the class.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog!
Stay Crafty!
