Stamp It Blog Hop - Thanksgiving in October

Creative Inking Blog Hop -- Christmas Joy


Hello everyone!  It's the 20th of the month and you know what that means, right?!!  I want to welcome you to another inspiration-filled Creative Inking Blog Hop! I am sooo excited and honored to be a member of this wonderful group of Creative Inking stampers.  The team members in this group have been working hard to create adorable, fun and inspiring projects for you.  You are definitely going to enjoy this hop...if you haven't started your Christmas cards...hold onto your sleigh...you are in for a ride!

Can you believe that we only have 9 more weeks before we hop right into the Christmas holiday?!!  YIKES!! Our crafting theme for October is Christmas Joy.  I wasn't sure that I was ready to create a Christmas-type card, but once the announcement came out that ALL Stampin' Up! stamp sets are on sale (15% off of all stamps purchased), well then....the rest is history.  I'm sure the stamp set I used (Cozy Christmas, page 9 in the Holiday catalog) will make it into your next shopping cart.  haha


Creative Tips:

  • What do you look for to inspire your creative side?  I found my inspiration for this card from a tag found on Page 8 in the Holiday catalog.  Yep!  That simple little tag, which led me to the challenge that I should create a "Clean and Simple" (CAS) card.  For those that know me very well, CAS is definitely not an easy task for me.
  • After playing with the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper pack, I am totally in love with it!  My favorite designs in the pack (you get 12 different designs, 2 sheets of each) are the Santa's and Reindeer's...they are so stinkin' cute!  These nostalgic cottages really set the tone for the sentiment that comes from the Cozy Christmas stamp set.
  • The Very Vanilla 1-1/4" Subtle Stripes Satin Ribbon is lovely, and compliments the Mossy Meadows card stock strip by breaking up the full panel of patterned paper.



I'm still in awe that I created this card...very "clean and simple"...which is not my usual style of design.  I struggle with it too much.  Now, you will want to hop on over to Dena's blog...I know she will have something pretty and amazing to share with you.  I'll be hopping right behind you as I'm anxious to see what she has created, too.  Just click on the 'Next' button and you'll be hoppin'.  If you get lost or sidetracked, just come on back and follow the list of participants shown below.  Have fun getting your fill of wonderful inspiration...don't forget to come back real soon.  :)
