Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop - 2013 Holiday Catalog Edition


Hi Stampers!

I'm so excited to share with you this month's blog hop with the Stylin' Stampin' Squad! It's Holiday Catalog time and each of us are showing off some of the super fun products found inside the pages of this inspiring "little" catalog. I decided to focus on the Tags 4 You stamp set that everyone who attended Convention got as an "All Attendee Giveaway". Of course it's not complete without the new Label Bracket Punch, so I added that to my order right away!


{Tags 4 You 4 All Occasions}

I used this card as our team meeting make n take last night. I so wish you could see this in person as the black chevron background is all GLITTER!! It looks so sparkly and fun in person...wish I could have captured that on camera! I inked the edges of the black background using White Stazon. My daughter said it makes it looks spooky. Not sure if you could tell or not, but the ribbon pieces are supposed to represent a spider's 8 legs. Kind of a stretch, but thought it was a fun addition nonetheless.

This next card was made by my upline, Andrea Botten, for our team meeting card swap last night! I asked her if I could share it in the blog hop since it uses the Tags 4 You!
 

I thought it would be fun to also create a card for the other two stamps in the set, so I went clean and simple with the following two cards to showcase the other holidays, too!

And, instead of using this as a Valentine's Day themed card, I went with more of a "thanks for making my heart happy" kind of card. I covered the word "day" using a Coastal Cabana heart topped with a pearl accent. And, don't you just love those giant polka dots? You can find that in the Season of Style DSP!
