Stylin' Stampin Squad Blog Hop - Christmas favorites

Thank you so much for joining us for the November Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad Blog Hop! This month our projects focus on Christmas. While we have yet to give thanks this month, some of us are already thinking about sending Christmas cards, what kind of packaging to present gifts in and how we want to deck our halls. On this month’s blog hop we are showcasing many of the Stampin’ Up! products that are available in the Holiday Catalog. You will see everything from cards to gift tags to 3-D décor and gift packaging. We hope you enjoy seeing how we use the products to create our projects and feel inspired to come up with some great projects of your own. Remember you can order all of the products showcased from your Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.

You should have just left stop number 9 on the Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad blog hop – Diana of Stampin' Fun with Diana. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn’t work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

One of my Christmas favorites right now is the Color Me Christmas stamp set and paired with the Season of Style DSP Stack you can make quick work of some fun cards!

I used the reindeer from the Color Me Christmas set and colored him using blender pens and the ink from the lid of the ink pads (Crumb Cake, Gumball Green, & Cherry Cobbler). I also added some Dazzling Diamonds with 2-way glue on the scarf and shirt, but it doesn't show up as sparkly in the picture as it does in real life! He needed a little red nose, so I popped on a Cherry Cobbler candy dot. The circles come from the Circle Framelits!

Open it up to reveal the message using another favorite ~ Endless Wishes. Wouldn't this be cute if you opened it up to a Christmas picture inside?

And, of course add a fun box of kisses decorated to match for a perfect gift! It's so easy with the Decorative Window Boxes (a definite fave of mine!). And, I love that 1" Cherry Cobbler Grosgrain Ribbon! It makes such beautiful bows for Christmastime! I was going to add a tag, but since I plan on giving the box with the card, I decided to keep it simple by adding some of the Season of Style DSP to match and left it with that. for stopping by on the hop.
