Welcome to Tattered Shoes Designs and the Aim for Alaska 2017 Holiday Catalog Sneak Peak Blog Hop!  Well, that is what this post was suppose to be, but I mixed up my due dates!  I decided to post my sneak peak as a solo affair...

I am so excited to see all the other new and amazing Holiday treats created for the upcoming Holiday Season and the the opportunity to play with a few items that arrived here in my craft studio!

I have incorporated a few new items from the Holiday Catalog with a set I just highlighted in my last Stampin' Up! class for the month of August and another set I will feature in my class for the month of September. I will return to share those card designs another time.

Today, I am showcasing a card using a few fantastic items from the 2017-2018 Creativity your Way Catalog along with some new items from the Creativity Delivered 2017 Holiday Catalog!  Stampin' Up! is so good at creating new items that pair so well with the items we are already loving!

I began with Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock and the largest geometric die in the Eclectic Layers Thinlits Set, which offered a wonderful golden hue and backdrop to my Christmas card.  

Next,  I used a Stitched Shaped Circle die to cut out a little globe of gold and silver snow flakes from the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I think this DSP is my favorite!

Then, a little greenery cut from a Patterned Pumpkins Thinlit added a little contrast for the Real Red Cup of Delight created using the Coffee Cups Framelits along with the Merry Cafe and the Half Full Stamp Sets!

Wow! What a wonderful match in Card Bliss!

A few wispy curls of steam, created with a couple of dies from Patterned Pumpkins Thinlit Dies rise up from the imagined hot cup of perfection within.

A little more gold during the Holiday Season is always welcomed! The Merry Christmas from the Half Full Stamp Set is embossed in gold and framed using a few Glitter Enamel Dots.

A few details added to the cup also includes some gold embossing from the Christmas Quilt Stamp Set. The remaining images are stamped using first and second generation stamping with Cherry Cobbler on the Real Real cup.  

A little more Gold Foil Sheeting finished off the top of this Eclectic Christmas brew!

I hope you enjoyed my card and continue down the path of inspiration with the tantalizing items to be found in the new Creativity Delivered 2017 Holiday Catalog!
