Well, here’s a new thing! I am not only posting on a Saturday, but I am also part of my first ever Blog Hop! (A blog hop is when a group of people post on the same subject, and link all their blogs together to allow people to follow the trail around the loop!)
So, as you may or may not know, all Stampin’ Up! demonstrators have to sign up “under” an upline. As in, you can’t just join, you have to belong to someone! So we all have ready-made Stampin’ Up! families! I belong to Natalie (I signed up under Cate, but she’s no longer a demonstrator, sadly) and Natalie’s group are known as the Stampin’ Stars. Today’s blog hop is brought to you courtesy of Natalie’s Stampin’ Stars, and the new Autumn-Winter Seasonal catalogue!
We are all making projects using products from the new seasonal catalogue, and here are my offerings:
Want to see them a bit closer? I thought you might! These cards all use the “Get Your Santa On” photopolymer stamp set, which is sooo cute! I have coloured the images using the Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities pens which debuted this year. Hopefully in these photos you can see the shading I have achieved:
Cute Santa suit!
The man himself!
And a “Chimney Delivery!”
I love this cute stamp set, and plan to use it for loads of Christmas cards this year, as well as working on my own Project Life cards using them, as the scale is fabulous for that. I have high hopes for getting a December Dailies album completed this year, and so there will definitely be some Get Your Santa On images scattered throughout. Especially that sentiment – “Get Your Santa On” – it is so “now”, and I love it!
In case you wondered, the images were stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock with Basic Black ink, then coloured as I said with the Cherry Cobbler set of Blendabilities (which are easier to use than I had thought!). I cut them out with the Window Frames Collection framelits, and backed them with a square of Old Olive cardstock, cut to an appropriate size to frame the square of the framelit. I then backed it all onto a card base of Cherry Cobbler and stamped the sentiment in Basic Black. Quick, easy, flat to post (it’s all stuck together with Snail, no dimensionals today) and effective. My favourite type of card!
IF you haven’t checked out the other blogs in the list, be sure to go and look at a few at least – these girls are very talented and I am sure the projects will be gorgeous!
