Inksomniacs 2017 Holiday Catalogue Bloghop

Welcome to the very first Inksomniacs team blog hop!

Today is the first day that you can order from the new catalogue
and we have a wonderful group of blogs who are just bursting to share what they love
about all the new stamps, patterned papers and accessories with you.
Its always exciting when we celebrate the launch of a new Holiday Catalogue.

I've chosen the stampset on page 19 of the catalogue.
"Beachy Little Christmas" because its an Australian style stampset which means
no snowflakes, no santas, no snowmen and not even any reindeers.
But instead there's : Seashells, a beach house with surfboard, palm trees, and a christmas tree in a bucket, covered in sea shells and seahorses.
When stamped in basic black ink the images can be easily watercoloured.
Maybe 'cause its 3 1/2 months till Chistmas, or the beach themed images, but i decided to use colours that are not at all traditional ...
Night of Navy, Soft Sky, Pickaboo peach, Old Olive and Daffodil delight for sand.

My second card uses the tree from Beachy little Christmas and as the words suggest "who needs snowflakes when you have sea shells."
Ive mounted the image onto a mat of Merry Music DSP ( also new in the Holiday catalogue).

Lastly, I want to share a third card using "Ready for Christmas" . It has this gorgeous little Dashund image, a table and plate of biscuits, plus a matching set of framelits to cut everything out with.
Ive kept it simple with just a gold metallic doily and a piece of "Year of cheer" specialty gold patterned paper behind.

Thanks for visting Stamping Joys blog today I hope youve found some inspiration. If you havent received a holiday catalogue please send me a text 0468877125 and i will post or drop one to your door.
