It’s Blog Hop time again and this time we are showcasing creations made using new Holiday Catalogue items.

I’m going to be using some of the products from the wonderful Brightly Gleaming Suite (catalogue samples below).
Aren’t these colours just gorgeous.
I’ll be sharing 3 cards with you today and this is my first.
I love the copper foil embossed with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder, which is punched out using the coordinating Gleaming Ornaments Punch pack. I’ve also added some of the Brightly Gleaming Foil Elements from the suite. The holly image has been stamped using Stazon Jet Black onto Shimmer White Cardstock and coloured with aqua painters and inkpads.
Now my next 2 cards are basically the same, I’ve just swapped the designer series paper.
This is the Night of Navy print
and the second sample has the Pretty Peacock print.
These last cards are great for classes as they are so quick and easy to make. One thing I will mention is that to get my placement correct with the punch I first punched out the ornament from scrap, then added some removeable adhesive to the back, placed it on the top layer as a guide and then punched out the shape. This makes it so much easier to get the ornament in the right spot, with an even gap at top and bottom and the ornament straight.
