Our challenge was to feature quick and easy projects using the gorgeous products from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.

I was inspired to use the Santa’s Workshop Memories and More Cards and envelope pack.  I was going to use the Santa’s Workshop Specialty DSP but I got side tracked by the Christmas Traditions Punch Box.  This is a great box and includes the Christmas Traditions stamp set, Christmas Traditions punch, a clear stamp block and the Call Me Clover and Real Red Classic Stampin’ Spots.

It was so quick to create a set of cards using the Punch Box.  I cut a mat for the cards using the All is Bright DSP.  I then stamped and punched one of each of the sentiments from the stamp set using the two ink spots.

I wanted to create a mat behind the sentiment so I cut out 2 of the shapes and then cut them in half and added them behind.  Here’s some photos to show what I mean.

So without further ado, here are the six cards that I whipped up!


I recently discovered the gold cord in the Annual Catalogue.  It also comes in black as well.
