It's a Mystery

Hello! Welcome to another installment of the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration blog hop. This month everything is a mystery!

You are currently at stop #1. You may be starting here, or you may have come here from Cheryl's blog. If you get off track, or a link doesn't work, there is a complete hop list at the bottom of each post. We hope you enjoy!

So you may be wondering what I meant when I said it was a mystery. Each of us sent items to each other that we were required to use on our project for this month. This is what Cheryl sent me.

And this is what I created with these supplies.

Since Cheryl had already used a thinlit to "decorate" the tree, I used the Metallic Thread that she sent along to thread through the holes for a garland effect. I added a Metallic Gold Star to the top the tree.

Mint Macaroon and Cherry Cobbler were two of the colors featured in the piece of Designer Series Paper that Cheryl sent me. This is how I chose the colors of card stock and ink to use. Through this, I discovered that I LOVE Cherry Cobbler stamped on Mint Macaroon!

I love the products that Cheryl sent, especially since I personally only own one of the three products myself. It was great to get to play with new items! Thanks, Cheryl, for the INKspiration and great products!

I sent my three items to Diana. She said that my items were quite a challenge, but I knew she was up for it! Let's head over to her blog with the Next button and see what she came up with!

My Favorite Holiday Bundle

There are so many great bundles in the Holiday Catalog! Did you know that you can save 10% when you purchase one of the bundle versus buying the items separately? While the Cookie Cutter bundle that I used in my last post is darling, the bundle I used today is my absolute favorite.

It's called Festive Season Photopolymer Bundle, and you can purchase it for only $42.25! The thinlits actually punch holes around your image, so you can use thread or twine to sew! This set combines two of my favorite things: paper crafting and needlepoint!

Here is a close up of the star with that yummy copper embossing powder, as well as the Metallic Thread Combo pack.

You can watch the Facebook Live video (called Labor Day Fun) I created for some more close ups.

#SSINKCC37: A Color Challenge

Hello! Today the ladies at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration have a fun color challenge that can support fall or Christmas themes. I chose to go with Christmas, and used some fun new products from the 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.

When I saw Cookie Cutter Christmas in the new holiday catalog, I just HAD to have it! The great thing is that it also has a coordinating Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. The best news? You can purchase them as a bundle and save 10%!

I wanted to do a Christmas card with the Cajun Craze, Chocolate Chip, and Garden Green color combo. The bears are just too cute, but since I was using the punch, I had to improvise on the ears. I used the bow from the punch to create the ears.
