Creation Station - Holiday Catty Faves - Wonder of Christmas

I hope you are having a wonderful Labor Day weekend!  If we weren't still swimming at our neighbor's heated pool, I would say summer seems to be over! Football season is here, leaves are starting to fall here in Minnesota, our oldest starts Kindergarten this week and the Holiday Catalog is here!  YAY!  I love making Christmas cards and can't wait to show you some of the great sets are in the catalog.  Seriously - what a fantastic catalog this year!  (If you need a copy and don't have a SU! demonstrator that you work with, I would be happy to send a catalog your way.)

Anyway, I'm talking too much!  Welcome to our Creation Station blog hop.  We are a group of international SU! demos that blog on the first Sunday of the month.  This month we are highlighting our favorites from the Holiday Catalog.

And since I can't blog every favorite that I have ordered, I'm showing you ONE of the great sets!

I love the religious sets in the catalog - to me they highlight the true meaning of why we celebrate Christmas.  When I first saw the angel set called Wonder of Christmas I knew it was a must have!

I love the catalog examples for this stamp set and decided to do my version of both cards.  I used gold embossing powder to give the angel some pizzazz since I knew I wanted to leave her uncolored.

I took one of the sentiments and stamped the entire background of the card base and also the inside of the card.

My favorite part is the cluster of various ribbons!  It really helps tie in the gold from the angel.

This was a great one to make multiples of too.  I'm selling packs of 5 at an upcoming vendor show so I did 10 in this color combo and 10 in a Tip Top Taupe/Wisteria Wonder/Gold combo.  I'm so happy with how they turned out and hope the shoppers like them too!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! Be sure to check out everyone's projects and pin your favorites!  You can head back to the lovely Jennifer Downey or on to my talented friend Elizabeth Price! :)




  1. Holly I like that you chose to highlight just one great set from the Holiday Catalogue for your Christmas card. You've done an awesome job of showcasing the angel and I'm loving the background stamping. I would have liked to see what it looked like in the other colours and the inside of the card too as they sound equally awesome. Good luck with your vendor sale. Looks like the perfect card for it.

  2. Stop it Holly, I wasn't going to buy this Stamp Set, but the more I'm seeing of it, the more I like it. A fabulous card. Thanks for sharing x

  3. Holly,

    I love this card!! I thought the set looked cute when I saw it in the catalog but seeing your card makes me love it!

  4. What a lovely card idea! I hadn't considered this set....until you changed my mind!

  5. Holly - your angel is so lovely as she is in her Gold embossed lovliness. Your cards are beautiful. D x

  6. Simple and beautiful. Of course you had me with that little doily sticking out. Oh my word... and the tiny ribbons... SO SO adorable. This is an awesome card. These will sell like hot cakes.
