Stampin Friends November Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin Friends November Blog Hop.  Our theme for this month is Happy Holidays. Christmas is my favorite holiday, I love creating cards and handmade gifts for friends and family. I hope you will enjoy seeing the ideas from each blogger. If you are following along the hop, you have arrived from the blog of Maureen Rauchfuss. Be sure to read through my blog post, comment below and continue along to the next blog. If you happen to get lost along the way, you can find a complete blog list at the end of each blog.  

I am so excited to show you my projects. All products used are from Stampin' Up! © 
I made a card using the Christmas Means More Stamp Set and a matching tag for this adorable fabric bag I found at Target.
The card features Christmas colors of Real Red and Garden Green.  I added several layers including Crumb Cake and Whisper White. The background is stamped with the Buffalo Check stamp and a real red marker to hand draw lines to create the plaid.  The holly with berries is fussy cut and adhered with glue dots.

I purchased this adorable fabric bag at Target. I made a tag using the Christmas Means More stamp set and added layers with Shaded Spruce, Tis the Season DSP and Whisper White. A small clothespin is hot glued to the back of the tag.  I added large jingle bells from my craft stash.

Thanks for visiting my blog,  I know you will want to continue the hop, next up is the blog of Anne Marie Hile. She has more inspiring projects to show you. 

I hope you will feel inspired to be creative in your own way! I look forward to reading your comments. Have a creative day!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop - Hello Pumpkin


Welcome to the September A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop featuring Hello Pumpkin. This hop will show alternative ideas for using the pieces from the kit.  
I am sharing 3 alternate cards I made using pieces from the kit and also a few additional Stampin' Up! items.

Hello Card:  All the punch outs are in the kit.  I added Cinnamon Cider card stock for the card base, Bumblebee and Mossy Meadow card stock to create the card layers, Cinnamon Cider Twill Ribbon and Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Give Thanks Card:  The kit contained the punch outs, and the plaid strip which is cut from one of the boxes in the kit.  I added Bumblebee card stock for the card base, Meadow Moments Embossing Folder to the Cajun Craze card layer, Mossy Meadow card stock strip, and circle die cut, Whisper White circle die cut, Braided Linen Trim and Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Happy Halloween Card:  The striped background is folded on both ends to create a focal piece. The saying label, and punch outs are all in the kit.  I added Pumpkin Pie card stock for the card base, Basic Black card stock with the Cobwebs Embossing Folder, Whisper White card stock for the Stitched Die Cut, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad, Metallic Mesh Ribbon, Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels and Wink of Stella (on the witch hat).  

I hope you enjoyed seeing my alternate projects for this Paper Pumpkin kit.  Are you ready to see more alternatives for this kit?  Visit each of the blogs for more creative ideas.
