Holiday Card Blog Hop Featuring Dashing Deer and Detailed Deer Thinlits



Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the November Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over the United States and United Kingdom! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Tracey Gouraud's blog. Welcome one and all.

I was unable to participate in last month's Fall/Thanksgiving themed blog hop; things just kept getting in the way of my design time so I am really excited to present my project for this month's blog hop featuring holiday cards and projects. But first, can you even believe that it is time to be preparing for the holidays? I don't know about you, but this year has flown by for me.



In my opinion, the Dashing Deer stamp set/bundle is the sleeper bundle of the Holiday catalog. I must admit, this stamp set/bundle was not close to the top of my wish list at all, however, it took the vision of one of my monthly stampers to show me that we could do a lot with this bundle. The Buffalo Check Background Stamp is so versatile (and I sure hope it carries over). Although the Holiday catalog runs through the end of the year, the coordinating thinlits (Detailed Deer Thinlits, Item # 147915) are on the low inventory list. (Hurry!) Notice the sentiment is from the Labels to Love stamp set that was introduced in the Holiday Catalog last year and carried over to the Annual Catalog. And don't you LOVE the Buffalo Check background stamp from the Holiday Catalog.

This card came to me literally while shopping during our trip to Highlands, North Carolina, in October. While window shopping, I saw this beautiful sweater. It was the same color as Stampin' Up!'s new color, Merry Merlot, featured on this card. The upper half of the sweater was solid and the lower half of the sweater was the plaid pattern of the Buffalo Check Background stamp. (Lightbulb moment!)  Here's a snapshot of the inside sentiment:

NOW FOR SOME BUSINESS ANNOUNCEMENTS:

The November Hostess Code was abruptly closed to facilitate the low inventory status of some products from the Holiday catalog. A new Hostess Code has been created to finish out the month in order to take advantage of the Online Extravaganza scheduled to coincide with Black Friday and Cyber Monday, November 23 through November 28. Please use this Hostess Code - KJMJUDTJ - unless your order already qualifies for Stampin' Rewards ($150 USD). Unless it is determined that it is not possible under the rules of the Online Extraavaganza which have not been announced yet, this Hostess Code will remain available through December 17. 



Looking forward to seeing your creations using the November Pumpkin kit!! This kit is really going to step up our holiday card making this year. LOVE IT!!




As always, it would be my pleasure to be your demonstrator if you do not already have one. I would love to share a copy of the 2018-19 Annual Catalog and/or the 2018 Holiday Catalog with you. Message me if you are interested, if you have any questions, or need any assistance whatsoever.

September Blog Hop Featuring Sheltering Tree and Spooky Cat for Halloween


Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the September Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over the United States, Canada and United Kingdom! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Anastasia Radloff's blog. Welcome one and all.

The theme for our blog hop this month is halloween! I decided to really s-t-r-e-t-c-h my imagination and challenged myself to use a stamp set without a halloween theme. I know you will not believe it, but my cat punch is making another appearance. (Click here to see my card from the June Blog Hop or the August Blog Hop.) The cat punch has been a great investment. It is so versatile.

The Sheltering Tree stamp set is one of my favorite stamp sets from the Annual Catalog. I don't use it often enough. The fence is pieced together with scraps from the Wood Textures 6x6 Designer Series Paper. The sentiment stamp is from the Labels to Love stamp set that was introduced in the Holiday Catalog last year (yes, the bat flying around the moon is fussy cut from the label!). And don't you LOVE the luscious Black satin ribbon (Annual Catalog) and the new Buffalo Check background stamp from the Holiday Catalog!!

I hope you have enjoyed my card today. Leave a comment below with a trail to find you so I can see your creations.
