Santa Claus is coming to town!

Hello and welcome to our December Blog Hop!  Today we are hopping about all things Christmas.  I love crafting for Christmas, it is my absolute favorite.  All my Christmas cards are handmade as well as all my tags for packages.  And I am always looking for new ideas, so this hop will be great!  I can't wait to see what the other designers come up with.  As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 9 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop - (Heidi at Stuck on Stampin'). If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.  

I have a card and a tag to share with you today.  Up first is one of my favorite Christmas Cards I made this year.  

Don't you just love the window framelit?  You can keep loving because it will be in the next catalog!  The card base is Soft Sky and the striped wallpaper looking DSP is from the Season of Cheer DSP.  I created a wintry scene with the Happy Scenes stamp set (which I got bundled with the window framelits).  It is hard to see in the picture but there is some Dazzling Details on the ground and in the snow for a soft glittery effect.  The Santa is fussy cut from the Home for Christmas DSP.  As for the Noel, that came from the Wondrous Wreath framelits which can still be found in the Annual Catalog.  I cut it from the Red Foil paper which will also be returning in the Occasions Catalog.  Here is a peek at home I stamped the envelope to go with the card:  

I also have a little tag to share as well:

That little deer is so dear!  This tag came together so quickly.  I cut the base in Early Espresso and used the Ornate Tag Topper Punch on the top.  The holly background paper and the little deer come from the Home For Christmas DSP.  I used the 2 3/8" scallop circle punch in Cherry Cobbler and the 2" circle punch in Very Vanilla.  The To/From comes from the Wondrous Wreath stamp set.  I finished it off with some Cherry Cobbler Thick Twine.  I love both of these projects!  

And because its almost Christmas, I am in the giving mood.  Here is a sneak peek at some of the new stuff in the Occasions Catalog using that same Window Frame thinlit.  

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Next up is Darcy over at Dj's Stampin' Place.
