Christmas Card Club with Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue Sneak Peeks

Stampin' Up! UK Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek with Christmas
I've been missing Christmas Card Club as I took a leave of absence while my kitchen was being renovated, but today we are moving back into the kitchen as it's almost finished  and also it's my challenge so I thought it was about time I got organised and got back into the swing of our fortnightly challenge.

We set our challenge at the beginning of the year, but like a sign I have on my wall at home says "if it wasn't for the last minute nothing would get done around here" hence I've just put this card together and in my honest opinion, (you can of course disagree!!!) I've incorporated a couple of the new incoming in colours from the 2015-2016 Annual Stampin' Up! catalogue and they are Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder.  I wasn't keen on the green when I first received it in my sneaky peek order, but it is going up in the popularity stakes.  

Another sneaky piece of info from the new catalogue is that Christmas stamps are back in all year YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! Even more YAY I have a couple already so I can share this fun card with you which has the fun Festival of Trees stamp set and its matching punch.  They will appear in the new catalogue as a bundle once more saving you 15% when you buy them as a double act.  

 One final sneak peek that I'm sharing is the cotton paper which is almost like a coated tissue paper with body, yes body and I've used it as the tissue in my gift bag, but because it has more body (a little like red wine) it will hold its shape.  
Regular readers, you know who you are, know that I love a bit of bling and my gold glitter paper adds that touch of Christmas sparkle on my Christmas Card Club challenge Gift card.  
Wishing you all a good weekend and a happy browse around the other ladies blogs in our friendly club.  You can find them in my right hand side bar sharing lots of Christmas card inspiration and styles.  



  1. What a wonderful card Zoe. I bet you'll be glad that the kitchen is finished too. Hugs Rita xxx

  2. Great card Zoe and I love the added tissue paper with body!! Makes you want to open the bag and see what's in there!!! \nice to have you back. Hugs Christine xx

  3. Great card the tissue in the bag!......and lovely to be moving back into the kitchen!.....xxxxxx

  4. I would imagine that it is a relief to be moving back in to your kitchen today, if that room is out of order it seems to disrupt the whole house.
    Lovely festive coloured card Zoe and thanks for a great theme this time.

  5. Loving these new SU colors. Saw them in the new SU catalog and also that pretty tree set. (will have to check if it's the same tree bundle I got earlier). Didn't see this pretty cotton paper though, and it certainly made your card so cheery & festive, with an unusual shade for Christmas green. I like it! Congrats on being back in your kitchen. Bet you're gonna love the new look. TFS & thanks for a great challenge theme.

  6. Love your little goody bag just waiting to be peeked into. Like those zingy colours . They kinda grow on you the more you see them! Hugs Mrs A.

  11. So funand cute, Zoe. Thanks for a great challenge theme!

  12. I'm not much of a green girl so I'd have trouble with cucumber crush too! Now, mint macaroon is a different that & paired with chocolate chip it's going to be gorgeous I think! Love your Christmas card xx
