November Paper Crafting Blog Hop

Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the November Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the globe! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Carol Payne's blog. Welcome one and all.

For this month's blog hop, we are all featuring holiday-themed cards and projects using any current Stampin' Up! catalog product. I selected the Merry Moose Bundle for my card.

The card base is a side fold A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, scored at 4 1/4", cut at 5 1/2") in Real Red cardstock. The mat build is a sheet from the Plaid Tidings 6" x 6" DSP (cut 3" x 5") and a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock (cut 2 1/4" x 4"). The sentiment is stamped on a 1/2" strip of Whisper White flagged using the Banners Pick a Punch. You could hand cut the flag, but why would you when the punch makes it so-o-o easy.

SIDE NOTE: I will be making lots of holiday cards using the Plaid Tidings 6" x 6" DSP from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog (MC pp. 56-57). I might have went a little overboard when select DSP was on sale last month!

Due to the restrictions on get togethers, my paper crafting groups have been meeting online via Zoom to finish our holiday cards, gifts and projects. We voted on three different stamp sets and bundles so I could focus on slightly more simple designs that would carry across all of our stamping selections and could easily be replicated with their own supplies from their craft stash. If you need measurements, just let me know. I think our pick, Merry Moose Bundle, and returning fave from last year, has won my heart.

Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you and your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it!
