Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today we have a sketch challenge for our blog hop.  I used a different pattern paper from Painted Christmas DSP that I had not used on a card yet this season.  This card has a natural feel with the colors and DSP.   Using the Christmas Season stamp set completes the project with all the great images in this set.   This will be my last blog hop of the season as I will packing up my craft room this weekend for the move into our new home in Kentucky.  I will see you all next year for some more hops, cards and card making.  My craft spaces have always been very compact.  I am excited to share that I will have space just for me and my card making in this new home, and I can hardly wait to get it set up and start making cards again.  Merry Christmas and see you all next year.

Stampin’ Up! Candy Canes Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today for our hop we have a sketch challenge.  I inked up the Candy Canes stamp set in Real Red for a festive Christmas card.  Adding some Green Foil leaves for extra shine and a signature ” Bow”  to finished the card off.  Make sure that stop by all of our creative blog hop team members and see what they created today for the hop.
