Stampin' Up! Mixed Medley - The Artful Stampers Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop


Hope that you've all been enjoying the gorgeousness of the Annual Catalogue. The Holiday Catalogue also went live on the 1st of September, but we thought we'd give you a couple of weeks to get into it before we bombarded you with the beautiful things the Holiday Catty brings!!!

So another Artful Stampers Blog Hop ~ this time to celebrate the Holiday Catalogue Launch!! You may have hopped here from
Anna Foster’s blog. I’m stop #6 on the hop and I’m glad you're here sharing in the fun!!

For my project today, I made a set of notecards using the very cute Mixed Medley Hostess stamp set and the matching 1 1/4 inch scallop punch. LOVING THIS SET and I can see myself using this scallop punch a lot as it layers perfectly with the 1 1/4 circle punch and the 1 3/4 scallop punch.

I used ALL the current In Colors + Basic Black (for my Halloween card)....and the best bit is this uses just ONE sheet of Whisper White cardstock - each card is 7cm x 14cm, scored at 7cm so you can get 6 cards out of one sheet!! How is that for thrifty!!! 

Now click on the link to Nicole Derendorf’s blog for the next stop on our Hop. I am sure
you will find lots of wonderful ideas on Nicole’s blog to inspire you . If you get lost or there are broken links just pop back here for the full list of stampers taking part in this hop.
