Stampin Friends It is a Holiday Hop


Welcome to the December Stampin Friends! Blog Hop! 
If you got here by way of Lisa Altman, I just love that crafty girl! She is one of my bestest friends I have never met.
I am so excited to have three amazing guest hoppers this month so be sure to show them some love!!
The kids managed to have a snow day on Tuesday and the only thing that I accomplished were Candy Cane reindeer! I just can't wait for Christmas! It is honestly my favorite holiday!!
 I recently received my 2016 Occasions Catalog Pre-Order from Stampin' Up! My card for this hop is going to show you how carry over items from the Holiday will work with items from the 2016 Occasions Catalog.


My card started with a standard A2 base in Pear Pizzazz Card Stock with a lovely matte of Blushing Bride.... YES it is my favorite color! The beautiful stripe is from a DSP in the 2016 Occasions Catalog and is called Birthday Bouquet. I then cut the strip of our Corrugated Kraft Paper. The Blushing Bride Satin Ribbon is from the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit. I then heat embossed our White Stampin' Emboss powder on Pear Pizzazz card stock using a stamped image from the Peaceful Pines bundle. My big shot and magnetic base went to work cutting the tree above as well as the trees on the tags below. I finished this card with some sparkly enamel dots from the above embellishment kit, a cute little linen thread bow and the lovely "Christmas Cheer" sentiment stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink.


As I said above these lovely little trees were made using our Peaceful Pines bundle! I stumbled on these cork tags believe it or not at Walmart... I can't find them now though, so check out Michaels because I found more there LOL! I used Cherry Cobbler ink for the sentiments...

I can't wait for you all to see what Tina has made for you! She is next! Don't forget to tour the WHOLE hop for our fabulous giveaway!!!!

Thank You for stopping by!
