Stampin Pretty Pals Blog Hop

Glad you could join us for some holiday crafting with the Stampin Pretty Pals!
I'm stop #1 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for Stampin' Up projects featuring the new Holiday Catalog. Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track.
I have a lovely Holiday card for you!
I used the Watercolor Winter stamp set, it's a 2 stamp process set. Each stamp has a 2nd one to use with it. Here I used the pointsettia, first stamping the background or water color part and the 2nd stamp puts in the details. You don't have to use them both, I don't alway, I didn't with the pinecone.
I used Cherry Cobbler ink and cardstock, and also gumball green and Crumb cake.
The ribbon is Whisper White seam binding.
I made the bottom paper using Cherry Cobbler cardstock and the Lacy Brocade embossing folder from the Holiday Catalog, it's my new favorite, just gorgeous. To get the color I inked up my brayer, then rolled over the larger part of the embossing folder, the part that becomes the background, put in my white and embossed as usual.

Now, hop along for more inspiring ideas from Shannon.Stop #2 on the Pals Holiday Catalog Blog Hop. Thanks for "hopping" by!
