Christmas in July

As promised... here are some cards I made while playing with my new tools.
So fun - the Holiday Catalog has Core'dinations Card Stock in Cherry Cobble, Early Espresso and Gumball Green! I used the new Holiday Frame Embossing Folder, ran it through my Big Shot and sanded it with the new Stampin' Sanding System to reveal the core color. This Core'dinations Card Stock is smooth on one side and textured on the other. 
12 sheets; 12" x 12"; acid- and lignin-free; $6.95
The tree & star above and this cup & steam are stamps from the Scentsational Season stamp set. There is also a candy cane and gingerbread man in this set as shown on page 16 of the Holiday Catalog. Using the Holiday Collection Framelits Dies and the Big Shot to cut out the images saves so much time! You can even make your project smell yummy with the Sugar & Spice and Peppermint Sticks Scented Stampin' Emboss Powders.
I stamped the 7/8" Cotton Ribbon with Cherry Cobbler ink and one of the designs from the Border Banter stamp set. Don't you love this pattern from the Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper pack?
This is a favorite! Isn't she cute? The Stylin' Snowfolk stamp set is in the main catalog and has 22 individual stamps! Mix & match to create a gazillion (at least) different snowfolk. I also used Be of Good Cheer DSP, Green Gumball 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon & Card Stock, and the Border Banter stamp set to complete this card.
