Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for September.  This month we are showing off our favorite new products from the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  We hope you enjoy our projects!

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Dawn Tidd at Tiddbits From Dawn, number 15 on the Pals Hop.  If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

For my project today I decided to share this simple, but elegant card I created as part of my Holiday Catalog Open House recently. I used the wonderful Wonderland Stamp Set and paired it with our fabulous new Basic Black Archival Stampin’ Pad. I simply love how crisp and clean the images are when I stamp them using our new Basic Black Archival Stampin’ Pad. Both the trees and the sentiment ‘Silent Night’ stamped perfectly for everyone who used them. For the background I used the snowflake stamp in the Wonderland Stamp Set and the Craft Whisper White Ink Pad to make them pop off of this Basic Black cardstock.

For a classy touch I added a bit of the 5/8″ Whisper White Satin Ribbon and I think it really finishes off this project nicely. I don’t typically use white and black for winter cards, but the contrast is just stellar in this creation and I do hope you can see how these items are some of my favorites in the Holiday Catalog this year!

The next stop is Becky Volpp at InkBlossomwithBecky, number 17 on the Pals Blog Hop!  Thanks for visiting; I hope to see you on next month’s Pals Hop!
