Happy Thursday......What day is it? It's blog hop day..... yea!
I am glad that you hopped on over to my page as part of the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop. This month's theme is Designers Choice and I am sure that you enjoyed Terri's creations as much as I did. In celebration of the Stampin' Up Holiday Catalog release, I wanted to showcase a couple of items I created using new Holiday products.
If you are like me, I love to create my own Christmas cards but I have to get an early start in order to make enough. My creation process doesn't help the timeline! This month, I decided started designing the first of many. My card uses the new Season of Cheer Designer Series Paper. There are 6 different double-sided designs. For this creation I used the designer sheet that has mistletoe on one side and stripes on the other. I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try my hand at the fun fold technique.
I used two new stamp sets - Wonderland and Flurry of Wishes along with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the new silver Cording Trim. The soft sky card stock blends very nicely with both the berries in the mistletoe and the stripes from the DSP. The Mossy Meadow ink matches very nicely with the leaves in the print.
I love how the fun fold opens up to display the sentiment inside. I could see using this technique in several variety of cards.
Many individuals involved in paper crafting are either card makers or create scrapbooks. I consider myself to be a mix of the two. In order to show the versatility of the stamp sets, I created a scrapbook page for my project this month. For this project, I also used the Flurry of Wishes stamp set along with Embellished Ornaments bundle set. In keeping with the color theme, soft sky card stock and inks were used in creating the page. I embossed the snowflakes and lightly sponged with soft sky. I love the new bundle set used in creating the ornaments. The foil paper accents the page and gives it a certain elegance.
Please feel free to check out some of my other blog posts using new Stampin' Up products! Up next is Ms. Maggie. I hope you will visit all the other hoppers' sites. There are so many talented individuals in the group, it is always exciting to see what they come up with next. As always..... Happy Stampin'!
