Welcome to the September Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop! Each month, on the third Thursday of the month, a group of us get together to hop and share projects from Stampin' Up!'s current catalogs. It's always a lot of fun. This month we are focusing on those products that first caught our eye when we had the chance to view the new Holiday Catalog.
You should be coming to my blog from the blog of Jan McQueen, a new addition to our hop. After your visit with me, head on over to see what delights Fiona Whitehead has in store for you. And, as always, our Hop runs in a circle. Whether you start at the top and go forward or start at the bottom and go backward, you will always wind up where you started.
One of the stamp sets from the new Holiday Catalog that I knew I had to have was Christmas Magic. I love all the stamps in this set and know I'm going to get a lot of use out of it. My first card is one I made for my youngest granddaughter. I put the snowman from Christmas Magic in one of the jars from the Jar of Love stamp set then, cut it out with the Everyday Jars Framelits Dies. He is such a cute little snowman.
Stamp Sets: Christmas Magic, Jar of Love; Inks: Archival Basic Black, Emerald Envy, Garden Green, Smoky Slate, Sweet Sugarplum, Tangerine Tango; Cardstock: Emerald Envy, Shimmery White, Sweet Sugarplum; Other: Everyday Jars Framelits Dies, Emerald Envy Baker's Baker Twine, Silver Gelly Roll Pen, Silver Sequin Trim, Softly Falling Embossing Folder
My next card also features the Christmas Magic stamp set. I love this train image. Reminds me of the one in the movie Polar Express. My cards this year are mostly in non-traditional colors as you can see. The only I colored on the train is the greenery and the bows and the gold ornaments.

My last card was made using the Father Christmas stamp set. This set and the Christmas Magic set were my must haves from the Holiday Catalog. I love them both. I did this one in Dapper Denim and Crumb Cake with a touch of gold in the cording down the left side.
